Caretaker faces jail for putting abuse images on boss's laptop

'Wickedly evil and vile plot'

Next gen security for virtualised datacentres

A school caretaker has been warned he faces a likely jail sentence for putting child sex abuse images on another caretaker's laptop.

Neil Weiner, 39, of Dagenham, East London, also sent police a CD containing 177 child sex abuse images he claimed came from his co-worker's computer.

Police acted on the information and found another 235 images on Eddie Thompson's laptop. Weiner hoped his actions would get Thompson sacked so he would be promoted and get his job, PA reports.

Thompson said when the accusations were made public he was ignored by colleagues at the school and he and his wife were scared to leave the house.

Thompson told the court in a victim impact statement: "My life and good name was nearly destroyed by a villain who tried to destroy my reputation in a monstrous manner. This must be the work of a depraved mind."

Wiener was arrested in 2007 after police traced the mobile used to make the original anonymous call.

He was remanded in custody and warned he faces a substantial custodial sentence. ®
