A paedophile row judge has sparked anger by slashing the prison sentence of a primary school deputy who hoarded films of the sadistic abuse of young children.
Stephen Horn, 34, admitted viewing child pornography over 13 years and downloading 20 hours of sickening footage.
He was jailed for 18 months in December and banned from having unsupervised contact with any child under 16.
Horn appealed the severity of his jail term which was reduced to ten months by three High Court judges including Lord Justice Adrian Fulford.
Last month he was forced to defend himself over historic links to the controversial Paedophile Information Exchange.
The senior judge and two colleagues ruled that Horn had not breached his trust as a teacher because his crimes did not involve his pupils.
They also said the Sexual Offences Prevention Order which banned him from unsupervised contact with children was unfair.
