A 58-year-old male teacher charged by Child Abuse Squad detectives last year will be sentenced in the District Court today.

The man, who cannot be named, taught at a southern suburbs school when he was charged with a string of offences related to the discovery of a hidden video recording device placed in a student toilet cubicle.

The charges included 27 counts of indecently recording a child under 13 years, 15 counts of attempting to indecently record a child under 13 years and 10 counts of unlawfully installing an optical surveillance device.

Sentencing on these matters was delayed earlier this year, with the man bailed prior to his final court date.

Police have asked the school the man taught at to not be named, but parents of children identified as having been recorded were kept informed of developments and offered counselling.
