Gareth Williams deputy head of Glantaf Welsh-language high school jailed for five years

May 20th, 2014

A deputy headmaster was yesterday jailed for five years for secretly filming pupils using the school toilets and showers.

Gareth Williams, 47, installed tiny hidden spy cameras in clocks, fans and toilet cisterns in order to obtain pictures and videos of boys without their knowledge. The married father of four even put a camera in the changing rooms on school sports day in order to catch as many children as possible. Williams, from Cardiff, was deputy head of Glantaf Welsh-language high school in the city a medium comprehensive school catering for pupils aged from eleven to eighteen.

Catrin Davies, from the rown Prosecution Service Wales, said: ‘The offences committed by Gareth Williams constituted a gross breach of the trust placed in him by those close to him, his community, his pupils and his employers.’ This of course renders his employers culpable for the sins and misdeeds that he carried out during the course of his employment.
