Qld teacher on child exploitation charges

AAP logoAAP 2/08/2016

A Brisbane state school teacher has been charged with child exploitation following a sting by Queensland's crime commission.

It's alleged the 54-year-old used a computer to access pornographic material at his Tingalpa home, which was raided by the Crime and Corruption Commission on Monday night.

The commission alleges the man was using peer-to-peer computer software to access the material.

But it says there's no evidence the man committed any offences against children he taught.

A Queensland Department of Education spokesman told AAP it "has taken action to suspend" the teacher but did not name the school where the man is employed.

The department did not respond to a question as to whether parents have been notified.

The man will front the Wynnum Magistrates Court on October 10.
