While working at another school, Dalmelington Elementary School, Graham faced further accusations from another colleague, who accused her of exposing sexually explicit details about her private life.

He is also said to have placed his hand over her, kissed her forehead, and placed his arm on her shoulder.

Graham today denied all allegations, except for kissing a colleague on the cheek, admitting his actions were sexually motivated.

He now faces removal from the Teaching Register following an investigation into the incident by the Scottish General Council for Education (GTCS).

Megan Ferguson, a former colleague of Graham’s, told a hearing this morning how she felt uncomfortable when he walked into the computer room when she was alone.

she said:

I think there have been more than 10 times since I started in August 2016.

“I was sitting at my computer thinking Mr. Graham was using it. He massaged my shoulders and back because there was no one else in the room.

“I was frozen. I didn’t think he was my boss, but it probably lasted for months.

“He didn’t touch me whenever anyone was around. I think you knew it was appropriate.

“As a professional and as an adult, you should know not to touch people without permission.

“I felt uncomfortable. It was an unwanted touch. I think it was almost a surprise.

“It doesn’t last long, but it probably lasted a minute or two.

“I didn’t say anything. No, I was looking straight ahead. I wasn’t looking at him.”

Hearings continue.
