Another collector of child porn gets permanent name supression.

In what seems to be becoming standard practice in New Zealand, Wellington District Court judge Bruce Davidson has granted permanent name suppression to a man found with thousands of pornographic images of children and animals on his computer. The man claimed he was studying the “economics of pornography”.

Wellington man had images of girls and dogs.

A Wellington man who said he was studying the “economics of pornography” was found with thousands of images of children and animals. The man was granted permanent name suppression by Wellington District Court judge Bruce Davidson this morning on the basis of his on-going risk of suicide and the vulnerability of family members.

The man had been caught in a trans-Tasman investigation of an Australian couple after he had been taking part in a chatroom in 2010. A search of his home computer, DVDs and memory sticks found a large number of images, many of girls with dogs and also girls together.

Judge Davidson said while some were staged, some were real and the victims had been found and some prosecuted overseas. The man had pleaded guilty to 40 charges of possession of objectionable material and was given seven months home detention and 180 hours community work.

The judge said the man had maintained that he had been undertaking a research project about the economies of the pornographic market. “Your reason might explain some initial interest but was devoid of reality to explain your full involvement,” Judge Davidson said.

He said the offending took place during a significant period of depression, for which the man was now receiving treatment and might explain his inability to simply accept the reality of his situation.

His lawyer, Mike Antunovic, said he had gained some insight into his offending and was willing and able to do the Wellstop programme which helps offenders stop sexual behaviour.

    New Zealand never fails to disgust me in it’s quest to protect the guilty while not allowing real people to take steps to protect their families.
