Pedophile Teacher Nabbed Again

An English teacher whose pedophilic activities made news last year has been arrested again. Hideaki Nakao (48), a former teacher at Tokyo Metropolitan Ueno High School, was arrested on Monday at Narita Airport on charges of having sex with two 16-year old Vietnamese girls last year. He is believed to have paid for at least eight child prostitutes - some as young as 12 - in Cambodia during last year's summer vacation. Nakao, who told police "I couldn't tell their age," is a known sex tourist who over the last seven years has visited Southeast Asia 19 times during school holidays. He was arrested last August for trying to smuggle a hard disk with over 6,000 pornographic images and video files. He was fined ¥500,000 and set free by the Chiba Summary Court. He was fired by the metropolitan education bureau last month.
