Paedophile schoolteacher films himself abusing girls

Saturday June 11, 2011 07:09:04 PM, IANS

London: A primary schoolteacher in Britain has been accused of filming himself with girls as young as 13 while sexually abusing them.

Nigel Leat, 51, filmed scenes of abuse against five selected girls over five years at Hillside First School in Weston-super-Mare, Somerset county, Daily Mail reported Saturday.

His victims' families listened in utter disbelief as they heard details of his offences in court Friday.

Some parents were in tears at the Bristol Crown Court as they listened to how the teacher would molest girls.

The girls were abused in the school's staff room and a resource room. He would film himself touching them inappropriately and also wrote letters to them, asking them to perform sex acts on him.

The father of two, who initially denied all the claims made against him, confessed to his crimes after police recovered around 30,500 indecent photographs and 720 indecent movies in his possession on a computer and memory stick.

Simon Morgan, prosecuting, told the court: "It is clear that these children had become well-versed in doing what was expected of them.

"These were a myriad offences over several years against exceptionally young children."

The court heard that he picked out children to receive special attention from him, including help when they struggled with reading.

He would place a camera under his desk and call them up, recording as he sexually abused them.

He was eventually arrested after one of his young victims, to whom he gave gifts, admitted to her mother what Leat had done to her and the police became involved.

Leat of Bristol has admitted 36 sex offences, including attempted rape of a child and sexual assault on children.

Judge Ford adjourned the hearing until next Tuesday when he is expected to pass sentence upon Leat.
