Paedophile's internet ban lifted
Daniel Kinge
Kinge's barrister said the ban was too far-reaching
A former primary school teacher from Warwickshire, serving a jail term for child pornography offences, has had a ban on using the internet lifted.

Daniel Kinge, 23, from Leamington Spa, was jailed for nine months in January after admitting nine charges of making indecent images of children.

His legal team argued that a computer ban also imposed on sentencing would stop Kinge from working on his release.

The judge at Warwick Crown Court agreed and lifted the measure on Friday.

Teaching ban

Kinge's barrister argued that the ban, which prevented his client from accessing any computer connected to the internet, was too far-reaching.

He said it would prevent Kinge from almost any kind of job he might want to do when he is released from prison.

Kinge, who committed the offences while teaching at Wellesbourne Church of England Primary School, was jailed for nine months on 24 January.

He was also ordered to register as a sex offender and banned from working with children indefinitely, punishments which both still stand.
