Retired Lecturer Jailed For Child Pornography

A retired lecturer from Suffolk who specialised in childcare has been jailed for three months after admitting a string of child pornography charges, prosecutors said.

Former college lecturer 64-year-old Kevin Pettican from Felsham Rise in Saxmundham admitted making and possessing indecent images of children, during a hearing at Ipswich Crown Court.

The Crown Prosecution Service said he was given a three-month prison sentence after the court heard he downloaded 92 indecent images of children on to his computer.

Prosecutors said Pettican had been a lecturer in social work and childcare at University Campus Suffolk in Ipswich and was a ``child protection expert''.
