British school teacher jailed for sexually abusing girlsJune 14th, 2011 - 7:59 pm ICT by IANS
London, June 14 (IANS) A primary school teacher in Britain who admitted sexually abusing girls in his classroom and then filming the act has been jailed “indefinitely”, BBC reported.
Nigel Leat, a 51-year-old resident of Bristol, filmed his abuse of five girls at the Hillside First School, over five years, the Bristol Crown Court was told.
He will only be released when he is no longer considered a threat to the public, especially young girls.
The charges against him include attempted rape, sexual assault and other sexual offences.
When Leat was arrested, he had around 30,500 indecent photographs in his possession.
Judge Neil Ford told Leat his “treatment of the girls was clever, cunning, insidious and wicked”.
It will be at least eight-and-a-half years before he can be considered for parole.
During the hearing, Leat sat with his head bowed looking at the floor. Families of the children sobbed as they listened to the judge outlining Leat’s offences.
Police official Geoff Wessell said Leat had abused the children in the “most sick” way.
“Nigel Leat is a predatory paedophile of the most sickening order who has preyed on the children of his school.”
MP John Penrose from Weston-super-Mare, where the school is located, said he wanted to see Leat “rot in jail for a very long time”.
