    Teacher faces jail term over video shame

    A PERVERT teacher faces jail after installing a secret camera to film girls in the toilets at his school.

    Married Paul Bodley, 54 - who has a teenage son and daughter - was nabbed when a flashing light on the camera was spotted by a girl of 14.

    An inquiry uncovered a battery of covert spying equipment behind books in a next door room. A video recorder, which had captured pictures of youngsters, was found running.

    Police were called to the school and arrested Bodley, who placed the equipment in the toilets between March and June last year.

    The disgraced teacher, head of music and expressive arts at Redhill Secondary in Stourbridge, West Midlands, was suspended.

    He appeared at Wolverhampton crown court admitting voyeurism and was remanded on bail until July 6 for pre-sentence reports. He is not allowed anywhere near the school.

    Yesterday, Bodley was unavailable for comment at the home in Bewdley, Worcs, that he shares with wife Penelope and his two children.

    But a colleague said: "We're stunned. Paul was one of our most respected teachers. He'd spoken about early retirement and giving home tuition."

    Redhill was named by Ofsted last year as one of inspectors' top 100 schools. It is a specialist language and musical tuition centre. Bodley used to help with orchestras, choirs, rock bands and other musical groups.

    John Freeman, Dudley director of children's services, said: "As soon as this incident was brought to the head teacher's attention, an investigation was launched.

    "The council is offering all help to ensure staff and children at the school are supported."

    Headmaster Brian Heavisides held a special assembly to explain to his 1,600 pupils what had happened.

    A year ago Redhill temporary teacher James Roberts, 24, was jailed for three years for downloading child porn.

    The filth included images of newborn babies. Dudley Council is not linking the two cases.

    Sounds like they like their pedophiles as teachers at Ol' Redhill.

    And babies? What a sick fuck!

    UK libel laws must really differ from ours. Believe me, I'm not defending the guy in any way, shape or form -- if convicted, he should spend a long time in prison -- but the word PERVERT really stood out in the lede, and not in a good way. Carry on.
