Disgraced child pervert Colin Trory had to 'pull up the rope' and leave a BDSM group when his secret shame was exposed, we can reveal.

The shamed ex-teacher - caught for a second time with images of children being raped - had been regularly attending fetish parties on both sides of the border where one former member told the Sunday World his "particular skill was with ropes".

And he also earned himself a reputation for becoming obsessive with women he met and had 'relationships' with - before he was exposed five years ago as a sex offender.

In fact dozens of women complained on secret online fetish forums and warned other women to beware because they had to call the police about his "stalker-like" behaviour.

Eyebrows were raised at Antrim Crown Court last week when the 46-year-old walked free despite being caught with indecent images of children being sexually abused, having been jailed for similar offences 14 years ago.

In June Trory entered guilty pleas to each of the 10 counts against him including seven counts of making indecent photographs of children and three of having extreme pornography on dates between March 17 and May 29 2018.

Two of the images he was caught with were of girls aged between eight and 10 being raped. However, Trory walked out of court a free man after a judge gave him two years' probation instead.

Before he was sentenced, we were contacted by a former member of a group called Fetlife who had encountered Trory six years ago at bondage parties in Dublin and Belfast.

And they confirmed Trory used a series of fake names and profiles to meet up with unsuspecting women - many of whom were single mums with children.

"He used to call himself Marc or Colm and he was very charming at parties, often dressed in a suit and tie," said the former member.

"He would hold 'classes' within the group, showing people how to best use ropes for play.

"This was around 2014/15 and obviously nobody at that stage had any idea he had been convicted of having child pornography."

Trory was rumbled after hosting an evening at his own house.

"He disappeared from the scene immediately, but I know he was in London for years beforehand involved in the fetish scene there.

"We also know he was back on the scene using different names so he has been networking on the scene undetected for years.

"Everyone was horrified that a child sex offender had been attending hundreds of parties held on both sides of the border.

"That was until you put his picture in the public domain for the first time recently. Now it has brought the story back and those who doubted it was him have now been left in no doubt.

"I'm shocked he has not been jailed especially as he was caught before."

Last month we revealed how creepy Colin was chucked out of a family housing estate by disgusted parents.

Trory fled his home 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 they told the Sunday World afterwards they were "horrified" the authorities had allowed him to live in such close proximity to children.

Since then another neighbour said she had suffered sleepless nights because her children had regularly been in Trory's garden to stroke his cat. She said she believed parents had a right to know if a convicted sex child sex offender was living in their area.

On Wednesday Trory was put on probation for two years by Judge Richard Greene QC, who said while the offences crossed custody threshold, he had "come to the conclusion there are objective signs that you have insight and do have a commitment to change".

But he warned Trory that if he committed further offences or breached the probation order "the court, I have no doubt, will have no option but to impose an immediate custodial sentence".

During Judge Greene's sentencing remarks, the court heard that police seized a laptop, tablet and memory card during a "planned search" of Trory's home.

Trory, a former church youth group leader who also taught at Castle High School in north Belfast, initially refused to answer police questions but five months later when the devices had been examined and offensive material uncovered, "agreed you were responsible for having downloaded them", the court heard.

Describing Trory as a "difficult sentencing conundrum", Judge Greene said that from the contents of the probation report, a psychiatric report and a lengthy hand-written letter from Trory himself, it appeared there was hope "you do have the capacity to avoid the temptation" of committing further offences.

The judge also imposed a five-year Sexual Offences Prevention Order and told Trory he must remain on the police sex offenders register for five years. 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 when a colleague nudged his laptop and an indecent image of a child flashed up.

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