A former schoolteacher was jailed today after hundreds of indecent images of children were found in his possession.

Steven Braisby, 37, of Wesley Street, Annesley Woodhouse, was jailed for nine months at Nottingham Crown Court after he admitted four charges of making indecent images of children.

Braisby’s offences came to light when Nottinghamshire Police’s Sexual Exploitation Unit executed a warrant at his home on 10 March 2015.

Numerous devices were removed from his home and a total of 264 indecent images of children recovered, including 46 Category A images.

The court heard evidence of Braisby participating in online chats about child abuse where he discussed his access to children as a teacher and how he had the opportunity to watch children as young as five undressing.

Det Insp Pete Quinn said: “Braisby’s offences were compounded by the position of trust he had with young people. His online conversations where he bragged of watching young schoolchildren undress are deplorable.

“Today’s sentencing will ensure Braisby is never again in a position of such trust around children.”
