A pervert ex-teacher will be taught a lesson on Tuesday when he’s sentenced for being caught with sick child images – for a second time.

Creepy Colin Trory – who was recently chucked out of a family housing estate by disgusted parents is very likely facing another trip to jail having served two years for similar offences 14 years ago.

Trory fled his home last month after we revealed he had been convicted of a raft of new offences including possessing indecent images of children and “extreme pornography”.

Horrified parents picketed his home in Finaghy until he agreed to leave and told the Sunday World afterwards, they were “horrified” the authorities had allowed him to live in such close proximity to children.

Now we can reveal Trory had been working a day job for a well-known car dealership.

But after we exposed his secret shame he was put on “gardening leave”.

Last month we revealed how the former teacher – who had never been photographed before – had been jailed for two years back in 2007 but after being released had slipped under the radar.

That was until he appeared at Antrim Crown Court after he was caught with more disgusting child porn pictures.

The 46-year-old ex-teacher is facing the distinct possibility that he’ll be going back to prison when a judge decides his fate in two days’ time.

It emerged back in 2007 the creep had been taking pictures of children from the bedroom window of his east Belfast home as well at a shopping centre.

Incredibly he told police he took the pictures because he, “appreciated the sense of beauty in young children”.

At the time Trory was a teacher at Castle High School in north Belfast when a colleague nudged his laptop and an indecent image of a child flashed up.

Police seized that computer along with computer equipment, mobile phones and cameras from Trory’s home and uncovered “extremely distressing” images of girls, including some as young as five-years-old.

Since then Trory had been living a normal life and had settled in Locksley Park in south Belfast and lived close to dozens of kids and several play areas.

Residents of the estate staged a ‘coup’ and picketed his house ordering him to leave.

His living room window was smashed through and the words ‘paedophile out’ painted on the house.

Locals told the Sunday World they were “shocked” and “terrified” after learning about his crimes.

Parents in the area were particularly dismayed after reading how the last time he was caught with illegal images of children he had also admitted taking photos of local kids, from his bedroom window, playing on a grassy area outside a previous address.

“We never knew, he has been here for ages and no one knew who he was,” said one resident who lived close to Trory.

“He always seemed polite, kept himself to himself as they always say but we are shocked. He appeared to live on his own, his blinds were always closed. You never seen him coming or going most of the time.”

Locals told us the area is full of families and there was one family with 11 children living very close to Trory.

On Tuesday Trory will discover if he’s set for a return to prison.

Appearing at Antrim Crown Court in June Trory pleaded guilty to ten charges including seven counts of making indecent photographs of children and three of having extreme pornography on dates between 17 March and 29 May 2018.

When we went to confront him about his most recent offences, we went to the address on his court charge sheet but discovered he hadn’t lived there for 13 years.

A young couple with two young children were living at the east Belfast address listed as Colin Trory’s and they were shocked to discover their address had been given out as belonging to a child pervert.

We wanted to ask him if he had given the court his previous address or if it was a blunder by the police or the Public Prosecution Service.

However, we never got the chance as he angrily shut the door in our face.

We called at his home on Wednesday night and he snarled, “No, I’ve nothing to say,” before slamming his door shut.

But he almost immediately reopened the door to snap: “Don’t ever come back to this house again – it’s private property.”

Furious Trory then slammed the door a second time, almost taking it off its hinges in anger.
