A teacher has been jailed for sharing his child sex fantasies online.
Teacher who appeared on The Voice jailed for sharing child sex fantasies. Paul Rajasegaram, 33, got together online with other perverts and even boasted. “I teach children”. Southwark Crown Court heard how in one message he showed a photo of the young son of a celebrity. And said he would like to rape him. He shared his vile images over Skype using the alias “London_boylover69”.
Rajasegaram was employed at an east London school as a singing teacher and had appeared on talent show The Voice. Judge Gregory Perrins jailed Rajasegaram on Wednesday for 27 months and issued a sexual harm prevention order.
Rajasegaram had pleaded guilty to three counts of having images of children and two of distributing them.
The judge told him. “Compared to some cases, you were not in possession of a hugely significant quantity of material. What you were viewing, sharing and storing were images, however, of real instances of horrific sexual abuse.”
He went on to say “At the time, you were a secondary school teacher. What is especially concerning is that you readily and enthusiastically engaged in conversations about the sexual abuse of children who were in your care.
The order I am going to impose today means you will never be able to teach again.” Operations Manager Martin Ludlow of the NCA said “Rajasegaram was a significant risk to children. And as a teacher had access to young boys whom he was sexually attracted to.
He sought out child abuse images and exchanged them with others. It is easy to forget that behind every sexual abuse image is a child whose life has been torn apart by exploitation. With men like Rajasegaram fuelling the demand for this horrendous material.”
The court heard how Rajasegaram has now sought help for his addiction with his barrister Liam Loughlin saying. “He does accept he has a sexual interest in children, he does want help.”
