Former deputy head teacher admits child porn and Class A drugs charges

Get West London is reporting that a former Catholic School deputy headteacher has pleaded guilty to possessing indecent images of children, extreme pornography and Class A drugs.

Peter William Allott, of Marchwood Crescent, Ealing, was charged with three counts of making indecent images of children, plus one of distributing indecent images of children, one of possessing extreme pornography, and another of possessing controlled Class A drug MDMA.

He entered his plea at a hearing at Blackfriars Crown Court on Thursday (March 24).

The now 37-year-old is due to be sentenced on May 5 at the same court.

At the time of his arrest by officers from the National Crime Agency (NCA) on December 7, he was the deputy head teacher at St Benedict’s Catholic Independent Day School in Ealing and has since resigned.

The former Tory councillor who served on the Perivale ward from 2006 to 2010 was charged on December 8, and appeared at Ealing Magistrates Court the following day.

The NCA said he was identified after intelligence was received that an individual had been using video conferencing facilities to share indecent images of children with others around the UK.

Matt Sutton from the NCA’s CEOP Command said: “Whilst there is no evidence that Peter Allott abused his position of trust at his place of work, we consider he posed a significant risk due to nature of the images he was sharing.”…
