Portlethen Academy teacher admits downloading images

AN ENGLISH teacher at a North-east school has admitted downloading child porn images on to a computer he used to store his schoolwork.

Alan Nardoni, who works at Portlethen Academy, amassed a huge collection on two laptops, a memory stick and several CDs and DVDs over a six year period, totalling at least 1141 videos and 5,904 images.

Many of them depicted young boys being sexually abused and some files on his computer equipment could not be opened despite forensic experts trying to access them, Inverness Sheriff Court was told yesterday.

The 36-year-old admitted possessing the illegal images and distributing them between February 18, 2006, and August 7, 2012, at addresses in Cumbernauld, Aberdeen and Kilmarnock.

Sentence was deferred on Nardoni, whose address was given in court papers as 28 Ground left flat, Loanhead Street, Kilmarnock, until August 13 for a background report.

He was placed on the sex offenders’ register and released on bail.

A spokesman for Aberdeenshire Council said: “Since these allegations came to light Mr Nardoni has been on alternative duties away from the classroom and has not had contact with children, pending the outcome of court proceedings.”
