University worker offered forged degrees in return for spanking sessions
Tuesday 02 February 2010
A University of Bath registrar who offered forged degrees to young black women in exchange for spanking sessions to satisfy his sexual fetishes has avoided jail at court.
Karl Woodgett, 37, took two young Cameroonian women to hotels and filmed himself caning and spanking them under the pretence that he was conducting a "pain management" study, Bristol Crown Court heard.
Woodgett, who worked at the south west university at the time, initially paid the women with cash but later offered fake university qualifications, a UK Border Agency investigation discovered.
Woodgett previously pleaded guilty to conspiracy to make false instruments, namely university degrees, and two counts of possession of articles for use in fraud, namely two degree certificate templates for Elsie Neh and Mbone Kemba.
Woodgett's ex-wife, Cameroonian Delphine Kah, 31, also pleaded guilty to conspiracy to make false instruments.
The court heard Kah and Woodgett both also forged bachelor and masters degrees for Kah and members of her family when he worked as a university registrar for the University of Surrey.
Judge David Ticehurst sentenced Woodgett, who lived in Frome, Somerset, at the time but now lives in Ewell Minnis, Kent, to nine months in prison, suspended for 12 months, and 200 hours of community service.
Kah, from London, was sentenced to four months in prison, suspended for 12 months, and 200 hours of community service.
