School Master Abused 2000 Girls

A PEDOPHILE, who posed as a school governor and father, abused more than 2000 young girls, despite being monitored by social services.
Divorcee Glyn Martin carried out his 15-year campaign of abuse using his two "daughters" as bait to entice their school friends for sleepovers at the family home.
After his arrest, police found nearly 6000 indecent photos of about 2000 victims. On undeveloped rolls, another 12,000 pictures were discovered, a British court heard yesterday.
Martin, 53, of Bridlington, East Yorkshire, had denied 57 counts of indecent assault, child abduction, indecency with a child, administering noxious substances and taking of indecent photographs.
But as the prosecutor opened the case at Hull Crown Court, be shouted: "I want to plead guilty to all these charges".
The court heard Martin became the legal guardian of two girls in 1991. "His appearance as a caring father with two young daughters was a successful strategy that enabled him to indecently assault their friends," Michael Harrison QC, prosecuting, said.
He said Martin gave parents a sense of trust with his apparent dedication to his girls. They allowed their children to stay overnight at his home.
In 1993, he became the governor of a school in Doncaster, Yorkshire, north England, where he set up a gym and used it to take hundreds of indecent pictures of children.
A year later, he moved to Bridlington with his "daughters" and bought several properties. It was to these addresses he lured youngsters, drugged them with sedatives and assaulted them.
The court heard the sedatives he used were so strong none of the victims remembered what had happened until police discovered the pictures years later.
Martin also abused youngsters while working as a children's face painter and took thousands of indecent photographs of girls at public events using a camera hidden in a bag.
He was not the natural father of the two children, whom he met through a charity, but became their legal guardian after convincing authorities he was suitable to act as their parent.
It can be revealed Martin had a brush with the law - and social services - in 1993, five years into his crime spree. A photo lab handed in "vile" pictures of girls to the police.
Martin was arrested and interviewed, but the Crown Prosecution Service decided there was insufficient evidence to prosecute. Social services in Doncaster were informed. The girls were put on the "at risk" register but stayed in his care.
