A special constable whose job was to grade indecent images of children, was jailed for two years yesterday.
Craig Keane, 28, of Wickford, who volunteered with the Metropolitan Special Constabulary (MSC) and worked as a teacher at The Sandon School in Chelmsford, had pleaded guilty on February 20 to nine counts of sexually assaulting a sleeping six-year-old child.
He was baby-sitting children in Havering and was unaware he was being filmed when he carried out his offences.
His crimes came to light thanks to the quick thinking of another child.
Speaking at Snaresbrook Crown Court in February, prosecutor Jeremy Hayes said: “Another child was in the room aged 11, who was concerned. He hid a camera behind a curtain.”
Keane was also ordered to remain on the sex offenders register for 10 years.
