Trusted and Liked Preschool Teacher Takes Indecent Pictures of Children to Share Online

© ChildForum

 

child abuseIn the UK 39 year old Vanessa and Facebook friends Colin, 38, and Angela, 39, set up a three-way communication network through which they exchanged thousands of explicit messages.

Indecent pictures of children, including bathroom pics, were taken by Vanessa at the early childhood centre she worked at using her mobile phone and shared online. 

Parents at the early childhood centre described her as bubbly, friendly, and competent. She was a married woman and mother, and the kind of person you would assume you could trust with your child.

The abuse went unnoticed at the centre and only an accidental discovery by a businessman, whose partner stumbled across the images on a computer, brought the abuse to light resulting in prosecution in 2009.
