Ipswich: Teacher Jailed For Indecent Child Images

A former Assistant Head Teacher from Suffolk has been jailed for having 40,000 indecent images of children.

William Stansbury, 46, was Assistant Head at Ipswich School, Suffolk, until his arrest in August last year.

He admitted five offences of making indecent videos and photographs of children aged between 10 and 14 at Ipswich Crown Court today.

The teacher who was living in Ipswich at the time but now is of Glenmoor Road, West Parley, Ferndown, Dorset, hung his head as sentence was handed down.

Prosecutor Michael Crimp said Stansbury had been driven by the `excitement of finding new material and was never satisfied with what he had got''.

The images were found when police raided his home and seized a desktop computer, laptop and external hard-drives.

He has been jailed for 16 months and banned from working with children.
