Pervert spared jail for ‘depraved’ child abuse images was caught with another sick haul
A pervert spared jail for a ‘depraved’ haul of indecent images of children is now behind bars after being caught with another sickening collection.
Christopher Hutchinson walked free last October after being caught with pictures and video of child abuse.
But within weeks he was back at it again, downloading some of the most serious type of indecent images and movies.
The 39-year-old is now remanded in custody and appeared at Newcastle Crown Court on a video-link to HMP Durham.
He pleaded guilty to six offences of making indecent photographs of a child, one of possessing prohibited images of children and possessing extreme pornography, involving animals.
The offences happened between January and March this year.
Judge Stephen Earl said Hutchinson, who will be sentenced next month, must be remanded in custody as there is a “substantial risk of further offending” if released on bail.
Judge Earl told him: “You are already subject to a suspended sentence for very similar offending.”
On the last occasion, Hutchinson, of Tatham Street, Sunderland, was caught with 174 photographs and movies after a tip-off to the police from his internet provider and was given a suspended prison term last October.
At that hearing, Judge Tim Gittins said Hutchinson’s collection contained ‘depraved sexual images’ which had been downloaded from the internet but not shared or shown to anyone else.
Judge Gittins said to him at the time: “I have to balance the need to punish you with the public interest in seeking to deter you from this sort of behaviour in future.”
Hutchinson was put on the sex offenders register and subject to a sexual harm prevention order as a result of his offending last year.
Pervert spared jail over ‘depraved’ child abuse images
A pervert who was caught with a “depraved” collection of images of children being abused has been spared jail.
Christopher Hutchinson was caught with 174 photographs and movies on his computer and two mobile phones when police raided his home.
Newcastle Crown Court heard the authorities had been tipped off by his internet provider about the type of images being downloaded.
The 38-year-old, of Bayswater Avenue, Sunderland, admitted making and possessing indecent photographs of children.
The raid took place on August 28.
Judge Tim Gittins said the pictures were “depraved sexual images” which had been downloaded from the internet but not shared or shown to anyone else.
The judge told Hutchinson: “I have to balance the need to punish you with the public interest in seeking to deter you from this sort of behaviour in future.”
Hutchinson was sentenced to 11 months imprisonment, suspended for two years, with supervision, 10 year sex offender registration and a 10 year sexual harm prevention order.
