Catholic teacher Mathew Reale jailed over child porn ring involving A Current Affair reporter Ben McCormack. More Here;

A former teacher at a Catholic primary school in Perth is sentenced to four years in jail for his involvement in a paedophile chat ring that included former A Current Affair journalist Ben McCormack.

But with time already served he could walk free within six months.

Mathew Paul Reale, 30, was working at a school in suburban Perth when he repeatedly made contact via the internet with several other men, including McCormack, and discussed abusing boys, some as young as babies and toddlers.

The WA District Court was told Reale also sent some of the men videos and images of children being abused.

State prosecutor Katrin Robinson said one of the men whom the defendant had contact with was a paedophile who showed Reale images of him sexually abusing a boy.

She said in one of his conversations he talked about adopting a child, or finding one in a park to abuse.
