Criminal behaviour and sadly unsurprising outcome

A former teacher from one of Australia's most distinguished families of judges has avoided jail after being convicted of filming up the skirts of his students and possessing child abuse material.

Robert Emmett, son of NSW Court of Appeal judge Arthur Emmett and Federal Circuit Court judge Sylvia Emmett, pleaded guilty in May to the charges, which included filming the private parts of children.

The former St Andrew's Cathedral School maths teacher, who is also the grandson of former chief justice of the NSW Supreme Court Sir Laurence Street, filmed three 14-year-old female students.

Police also found more than 9,000 child abuse images on a portable hard drive at his home.
