Former teacher jailed for downloading thousands of images of child pornography

A former school teacher from Cardiff has been jailed after downloading thousands of images of child abuse – some involving boys as young as 10.

Paul Fisher admitted possessing more than 2,000 pornographic images of children and distributing more than 800 images using a peer-to-peer file sharing site.

Sentencing at Cardiff Crown Court , Judge Daniel Williams told the defendant: “You must recognise that behind each of those images is a real child.”

Prosecutor Paul Hewitt said the order was “for public protection” and banned the defendant from viewing or downloading images of children online.
