A former Ballarat teacher who has attacked 38 children for 38 decades has been imprisoned for 12 years.

Vincent Henry Reynolds, 78, was convicted Thursday in the County Court of Victoria after pleading guilty for 42 counts of indecent assault.

He was imprisoned for 12 years and must serve at least nine before he is eligible for release on conditional release.

Reynolds molested his students for 30 years from 1960 in schools in central and northern Victoria, pretending to be marking their homework.

The heinous crimes were mainly targeted at boys under the age of 16 who took place at a number of schools in regional Victoria, including Wodonga, Dederang and Myrtleford.

Multiple victims were present at the hearing on Monday, with some shouts & # 39; what a joke & # 39; and & # 39; rot your bastard in hell & # 39; after the conviction, Nine news reported.

Brian Jackson was only eight years old when he was attacked by Reynolds and said he was disappointed in the 78-year-old sense.

"He ruined our lives and as early as 1960, when he first left college, he insulted children," said Professor Jackson.

& # 39; You feel let down by the legal system, but nothing against the judge, she has done a wonderful job, but she is also bound by law.

Mr. Jackson said that he and many other survivors did not believe that Reynolds showed any remorse for what his actions were doing.

& # 39; He's so arrogant he didn't remember half of us, & # 39; said Professor Jackson.

At his May hearing, the court was told that Reynolds would molest his victims while pretending to correct their homework and mark their schoolwork.

He would also be prey for victims in opportunistic times, such as when his class was watching a movie or when a child had to change clothes.

In one instance he took the hand of a boy and placed it on his penis while instructing him to & # 39; rub & # 39 ;.

He groped the boys over their clothes, and some of his actions were also related to the skin.

One of the boys told his parents about the insult, but they did not believe him.

Reynolds was sent to a psychiatrist in the 1980s amidst allegations of sexual violence, but was allowed to continue teaching.

In 1992 he went on sick leave when the accusations of his abuse started to come up.
