School Caretaker Jailed for Child Porn
Pictures found in raid on house belonging to school
A former caretaker at a local primary school has been jailed after police found more than 13,000 indecent images of children at his home.
Peter Miller, aged 53 and a father of four, who had worked at Avonmore Primary School for ten years was jailed for less than two years after pleading guilty to eleven counts counts of making, possessing and distributing indecent images of children
He stored the photos on several computers which he kept in a house owned by the school on Earsby Street. He also used them to enter chat rooms and share photos with other paedophiles. Millar was exposed following a raid on the house in September of last year. The police have stated that some of the pictures found were at the most extreme end of the scale used to rank child pornography.
A statement from Hammersmith and Fulham Council issued on behalf of Avonmore Primary School stated, "During the investigation Miller was banned from coming near the school site. None of these crimes relate to pupils at the school but we are pleased that the police investigation uncovered Miller's activities."
Miller was suspended from working at the school on his arrest and dismissed soon afterwards. He was placed on the Sex Offenders' Register for 10 years and banned from working with children for life.
