A FORMER school teacher who satisfied his spanking fantasy by sexually abusing pupils in a sound-proof music room has been jailed for the second time in less than three years.

Christopher Roy Bacon

Christopher Roy Bacon (77) – who worked at St Helier Boys School which later became d’Hautrée – was jailed for five-and-a-half years in 2017 after he was found guilty of eight counts of abuse against six boys. He is still serving time for those offences and was due to be released in July next year.

Today he was jailed for a further two years after admitting five counts of indecent assault against four boys during the 1970s and 80s.

Bacon remains on the Sex Offenders Register from his previous conviction.

Delivering the court’s sentence, Commissioner Sir Michael Birt said: ‘In March 2017 you were sentenced to five-and-a-half years for seven counts of indecent assault and one count of procuring act of gross indecency with five boys who attended the then St Helier Boys. The assaults on five of the boys were committed in the context of corporal punishment. You had a spanking fetish and the spanking was done to give you sexual pleasure rather than any other reason.

'Now since 2017 four more victims have come forward and their complaints relate to indecent assaults in the context of your administering of corporal punishment.

'As with previous offences this was a gross betrayal of trust. You were a teacher and the boys were entrusted to your care. We have been provided with psychological reports on two victims and a personal statement from a third. It is clear that two of the victims have been severely psychologically affected and the third says he lost his trust in teachers as a result of what you did which affected his education.’
