A RENOWNED keyboard player who ran one of the town’s top music shops has been jailed for 32 months after admitting downloading thousands of child porn images.

David Templing, of Manor Road, Martlesham, was the director of Haven Keyboards, which traded for many years in Felixstowe Road, near St Augustine’s roundabout.

The 54-year-old was also one of the region’s distinguished organists.

Templing previously admitted nine charges of making indecent images of children when he appeared for his Ipswich Crown Court plea and case management hearing last month.

He also pleaded guilty to voyeurism by recording another person doing private acts for the purpose of obtaining his own sexual gratification, knowing the other person did not consent to that intention.

The charges relating to the child pornography originally alleged Templing had made 5,817 indecent photos, or pseudo photographs, of children.

The accusations relate to the period between April 4, 2005 and October 1, 2011.

The voyeurism charge is said to have occurred sometime between May 1, 2004 and December 31, 2010.

Templing was arrested on October 14 last year, before being bailed pending further enquiries. He was charged in July.

Templing became a director of Haven Keyboards, which sold and rented musical instruments, in November 2000.

Haven Keyboards specialised in organ music, but is now closed.

Templing also managed the store, as well as being a director of the company.

As a musician he described himself as a ‘keyboardist’ and is well-known in the area for his organ music and concerts at various venues around Suffolk.

He has made at least five CDs of – two of which he is said to have recorded under his own label.

  • Why is it always people in trusted postions that choose to do this sick and vile act ? It's because they have a bit of power and get above their station.
