A former West Australian school teacher has been sentenced to one year in prison for child pornography offences.

Daniel Xavier Hogg was working at a Kalgoorlie primary school, in the state’s Goldfield’s, when he was arrested as part of an Australian Federal Police investigation in April.

In May, he pleaded guilty to seven counts of possessing child pornography and one count of using a carriage service to access the material.

In handing down her sentence in the District Court, Judge Julie Wager said Hogg’s career as a teacher had been ruined and he had undertaken voluntary counselling.

But she said accessing child pornography was a serious offence and would not be tolerated.

Hogg will be eligible for parole in six months.
