Another head of music is jailed for child porn

Derek Berditch, 58, head of music at St Joan of Arc catholic school, Herts, since 1987, has been jailed for 18 months for possessing 58,770 images of ‘extreme’ child pornography.

The judge said: ‘This is not a harmless hobby like stamp collecting and it is not a victimless offence.’

The news value of the story has been somewhat inflated by the discovery that Berditch once had a pop star, Kate Nash, among his pupils.
