Prep School Teacher Jailed for Child Sex Offences

November 26th, 2020

A former prep school teacher has been jailed for child sex offences dating back to the 1960s.

Hubert Hallman, 82, admitted four counts of indecent assault against a pupil while he was a French teacher at the Stroud School in Romsey, Hampshire.

Southampton Crown Court heard his “traumatised victim” came forward in 2017 following high-profile child sex abuse cases.  The court heard Hallman, of St Albans, was regarded as a “ferocious school master” and pupils at Stroud School were “terrified” of him.

The court was also told that Hallman was convicted of similar offences in Switzerland when he was a trainee Catholic priest.  He was also jailed in the early 1970s for 16 offences he committed while working a school in Greenwich.

Hallman was sentenced to two years and six months in prison.
