Pupils find teacher's abuse images

Who knew you could retrieve stuff from the recycling bin?

Designing a Defense for Mobile Applications

A teacher who let a class use his laptop was given a suspended sentence yesterday after kids found child sex abuse images in his recycling bin.

Michael Humphreys, 32, of Didsbury, allowed members of his year 11 class to use his laptop to play chess. The cunning kids checked his deleted items and found a file called 'paedo girl'.

The children did not open the file, but did tell their parents. A police search of Humphreys' home found 25,000 images and films, most of them at the lowest level 1 category.

His defence told the court he had begun looking for teenage models for an art project before collecting images for "personal use".

The teacher pleaded guilty and walked free with a four month sentence suspended for two years, the Daily Mail reports.

Chorlton High School, south Manchester, said he had been suspended as soon as the allegations came to light and police were informed. ®
