29-year-old teacher who downloaded depraved sex videos from girls as young four years old via the Dark Web software to conceal him is not in jail

  • Matthew Walker (29), had sick videos of young girls stored on his computer’s ‘den.
  • He downloaded software that would allow him search the Dark Web looking for depraved and disturbing videos
  • Walker admitted to making indecent photographs of children at Teesside Crown Court

An educator who had downloaded videos of child abuse from as young as 4 years old on the dark internet was not sentenced immediately.  

Matthew Walker (29), had sick videos of young girls stored on his computer in his “den” when officers raided his North Yorkshire home, Hutton Rudby.

Teesside Crown Court heard that the software he used to search for dark and depraved videos on the Internet had been installed.

Dan Cordey, the prosecution, stated that there were two aggravating characteristics to the case: a 4-year-old child was recorded being sexually molested and a 6-year old boy was also filmed.

This teacher, whose name was not revealed during the hearings, is now on a list that prohibits him from ever again working with children.

Walker from Norton, North Yorkshire has admitted to three counts of indecent imagery of children. There were 138 cases at Category A, six at Category B, and five at Category D.

The sentence was for 12 months in jail, with a suspended term of 18 months.

Walker was informed by Timothy Stead, Judge Timothy Stead: “You should know better.

It is no surprise that you are supported. You’ve taken the first steps, but you will need to go further.

Walker was also given a supervision order for 18 months, 100 hours of unpaid work, 30 days of Rehabilitation Activity Requirements, a Sexual Harm Prevention Order for ten years and was ordered to register as a sex offender for ten years.

He was also ordered to pay £250 towards the prosecution costs after he changed his plea on the day of his trial
