Pervert teacher, 31, who used a camera pen to take dozens of ‘upskirting’ photos of schoolchildren and staff is jailed for a year

A perverted teacher who used a pen with a concealed camera to take ‘upskirting’ pictures of pupils at two schools has been jailed for 12 months.

Jeffrey Wilson, 31, used the camera pen to take secret images of pupils and staff at Thomas Clarkson Academy, in Wisbech, and again at Hills Road Sixth Form College, in Cambridge, while working at both schools in 2019.

On February 11 this year, detectives carried out a warrant at Wilson’s home in March, Cambridgeshire, after an IP address was linked to viewing thousands of indecent images of children online, including Category A images.

Electronic devices, including mobile phones, laptops, USB sticks and tablets were found by police and seized.

Examination of these devices revealed 45 ‘upskirting’ images taken during a six-month period from April to September 2019, while Wilson worked at the two schools

Wilson had also used a hidden camera in a clock to secretly film a woman undressing at his home.

Following the discovery of this content, a further search of Wilson’s property was conducted, where officers found the pen used to secretly take photos at the schools.

Analysis of the electronic devices seized from Wilson’s home also revealed nearly 53,000 indecent images or videos of children. Of these, 90 were category A – the most severe.

Wilson admitted three counts of making indecent images of children, three of voyeurism and two of recording an image under clothing to observe another without consent.

On Tuesday, August 30, Wilson appeared at Peterborough Crown Court where he was jailed for a year. He was also made subject to a ten year Sexual Harm Prevention Order.
