A SUNDAY school teacher has been jailed for three-and-a-half years after sexually assaulting a small boy and downloading 1,000 pornographic photo-graphs of children.

Judge Nicholas Webb told 23-year-old Darren Cresswell that his paedophilia had become a "consuming interest" which he clearly enjoyed.

Cresswell took a degree course in computer science at Wolverhampton University and set up his own website for paedophiles to discuss their fantasies with children and how they were struggling to deal with the problem, said John Hodgkinson prosecuting.

He was a regular member of the congregation at the New Testament Church of God, taught at Sunday school and also took children on trips,

Cresswell was arrested after information picked up by the Metropolitan Police in London about his website, Wolverhampton Crown Court was told.

It was traced to his home, in Bradley Lane, Bilston, and police raided the property and seized his computer, which contained more than 1,000 indecent images of children.


Cresswell was arrested and accepted he was responsible for the website, but denied he had set it up for his own sexual gratification.


"He told the officers the site had helped him to overcome his own feelings towards children because he had been able to talk about it with others," said Mr Hodgkinson.


Cresswell admitted sexual assault on a young boy and 16 charges of making indecent images of children. He was also ordered to register as a sex offender for life and barred from ever working with children.


Oliver Woolhouse, defending, said Cresswell felt sexual attraction towards young children.


The website was a "forum for debate to discuss with others struggling to deal with the same issues" and that was why he had down-loaded the images.


He added that Cresswell had not joined the church to be close to children.


"He has been going to the church since he was 12 and his father went before him," said Mr Woolhouse.


The judge told Cresswell he was a self-confessed paedophile who appeared to wear his badge with "defiance and pride".

Not for long!!!

Ste,
Wow!! i still can not beleive that these perps are getting 3 years. The boy and other victims will live with the consequences of the abuse for their entire lives. I just don't get it. One more thing, his story about having others to talk to to help him with his sick fantasies, that's why he had the images on his compputer is such BS. I went to AA for awhile and we didn't bring bottles of booze to the meetings to help us with stopping the urge to drink. CRAZY. light and luv, sis

Sis, it is one website down for the perps.
Thing is, he is only young, and will have to sign the register for life.

Wait till the cons get hold of him, he will be wearing a different badge.

Ste,
Yes, he will be wearing a different badge. You know i have always said that there should be no protective custody for these perverts. They need to be put in main stream prison. They would certainly get to experience the fear and shame that their victims did. The reality is that they may get killed but not until after what they did to others was done to them. I have to be honest here. So what!! Nobody protected the children from them and they don't deserve any either. One good thing that has happened here is that we have one cyber site down, hurray!!!! I don't have any denomination as far as religion goes. i am very spiritual and have found that path myseslf, not trusting at my gut level organized religion. I still however hate that another person has used a church to cover up thier sickness and abuse of children. Some people need to believe in some entity like organized religion, without it they would be lost. It shows them that there is no safe place. We survivors have felt that and i wouldn't wish that on anyone. They should get an extra penalty for adding god into the equation. light and luv, sis

Sis, I learned to have compassion for these beasts, only because it keeps me sane, and it is easier to get points across without looking like a vigilante.

He wont be able to go near a girl who has kids, he will not be allowed to be near them.
It probably netted a few of his 'friends' in the process.

I cannot even find the words to say what I think on this one, :rolleyes:

hang the bastard is all i can say. once again they get away with it. A spell in jail is luxury to them. i would have them working out in chain gangs in all weather with a plaque on their back describing the crime.
