A lollipop in elementary school who sexually filmed himself with abusing young girls – including a one-year-old baby – while looking after them was found guilty.
In the West Australian District Court on Tuesday, Michael Cyril Hyde, 60, was found guilty of filming his abuse on two sisters, aged six and seven, and having a baby out when she was between one and four.
It took a jury only an hour and a half to convict him of three points of persistent sexual behavior with the sisters between October 2011 and April 2013, and an unrelated child between April 2013 and April 2016.
Michael Cyril Hyde, 60, claimed a video in which he touched the genital parts of the baby while in fact he was brushing fries crumbs from the area to check if she had had a diaper
He was also found guilty of four counts of producing child exploitation material involving these three children and another girl.
Hyde claimed that there was & # 39; nothing sexual & # 39; was in the video recordings that the police found in 2016 and denied sexual interest or & # 39; obsession & # 39; with children.
The traffic warden claimed that a video of him touching the genital areas of the baby was actually brushing fries from the area to check if she was wearing a diaper.
He also claimed that he was looking for & # 39; lesions & # 39; in another video in which he touched the genitals of two sisters from another family.
He said the & # 39; lesions & # 39; were caused by an & # 39; autoimmune deficiency & # 39; and that his camera was on because he had poor visibility and had to zoom in on the area to see well.
Judge Felicity Davis said she expected Hyde to continue to deny that he had done something wrong.
During the trial, public prosecutors said that Hyde befriended the mother of the baby and her sister while working as a lollipop at a primary school before he began looking after the two children.
& # 39; I don't believe the evidence, but he clearly convinced himself he was doing nothing wrong & # 39 ;, she said, as reported by Perth Now.
& # 39; The problem is that everything he said was totally incompatible with what he saw him do and heard him say in this video. & # 39;
Before submitting their verdict, the jury had to dozens of recordings of the abuse in a closed court for more than two days.

The other family, including two sisters and their brother, were not connected to the school.
Judge Davis will have to look at a copy of the material before she condemns Hyde, saying today, "I just have to see if they are the worst I've seen in my career."
She warned Hyde that he would go to jail and said: & # 39; I see no option but a prison sentence & # 39 ;.
He was taken into pre-trial detention and will be sentenced on August 2.
