School Cleaner Jailed Over Toilet Pictures

A CLEANER at a primary school who drilled holes in the ceiling of a toilet and took pictures of girls and female teachers, leaving some children traumatised, was jailed for just four months today.
Adrian Alan Mayne, 31, of Hobart, used the school's own camera to take 36 pictures of the breast and groin areas of girls and female members of staff at the Tasmanian school.
He also drilled a large hole in the kindergarten floor to take pictures "upwards from the legs of female teachers".
Mayne superimposed the snaps on to photographs of adults engaging in sexual activity to make a collection of 90 images, the Supreme Court of Tasmania was told.
Justice Peter Evans said today that the toilets were also used by a playgroup and after school sports groups.
Mayne had also downloaded images from the internet of children naked or in sexual poses, Justice Evans said.
The court was told that some of the children at the school now had nightmares and others were losing trust in adults, with one of them soiling himself because he was too scared to use the toilets.
Mayne was employed by the school as a cleaner, but his duties included gardening maintenance and repairs.
He also was involved in running the school's vegetable plot and coaching the local football team.
"The discovery of his conduct has caused anxiety and disgust," Justice Evans said.
"It is not difficult to envisage what effect this will have on his wife and children. He is totally remorseful and ashamed by what he has done."
But Justice Evans said a prison sentence was necessary to reflect the seriousness of the crime.
He jailed Mayne for four months and ordered he be placed on a sexual offenders' register for 10 years on his release.
Mayne earlier pleaded guilty to three counts of indecency, one count of producing child exploitation material, and one count of possessing child exploitation material.
Tasmania's Department of Education said today it inspected all government school toilets and amenities before the school started this year.
"Schools have taken immediate action to rectify potential situations that could provide opportunities for inappropriate behaviour," Department of Education deputy secretary Greg Glass said.
"A full investigation was carried out by the department in relation to the events and support was offered to staff, students and their families," Mr Glass said.
