School worker jailed for abuse images

32 months

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

A secondary school IT support worker has been jailed for 32 months for possessing and making thousands of child sex abuse images and videos.

Oliver Corbett, 25, from Dishforth, North Yorkshire, was sentenced at York Crown Court yesterday. Corbett was arrested in September 2009 and had 62,000 images and 1,585 videos of children, the court heard.

He was charged with 22 offences, but none related to children at either of the schools where he worked as a support assistant. The investigation was sparked by intelligence from the Metropolitan Police.

Sergeant Geoff Crocker said: "Corbett was an IT expert, the schools were presented with a clean cut and very talented young man with no previous convictions or history. The way the computers were set up and the storage of the information  made it unlikely that his family would have discovered his collection.

"The equipment set-up contained within his bedroom would put many professional IT systems to shame."

Corbett was also sentenced to a six-year Sexual Offences Prevention Order and will be required to sign the sex offenders register for life. ®
