Belper pervert and drug-dealer told to pay up to £40,000

A pervert who downloaded 4,500 sick child abuse images and was then found with three different drugs at his Derbyshire home has been ordered to pay more than £40,000 from his ill-gotten gains.

Derby Crown Court heard how Roland Kamsika will have to sell his home and his car to raise the money to pay the £42,240 under a proceeds of crime act application.

And a judge told him that if he does not do that within three months he will be jailed for six months.

Police raided the Belper home of the 50-year-old after information was received that he was downloading the indecent images.

But when they began their search the discovered a “professional” grow and recovered 1.5kg of cannabis, along with ecstasy and amphetamine.

At the proceeds of crime hearing, Recorder Dean Kershaw was told how the £42,240 was the “agreed benefit” that self-employed IT consultant Kamsika made from his criminality.

He said: “The amount available to you, I have been told, is £66,608.02 which relates to half of the value from to the sale of your house in Ashbourne Road, £1,200 which is the estimated value of a Toyota car and £1,956.68 in a Barclays account.

“From your offending you benefitted £42,240 and I will give you three months to pay it.

“That means you must pay that by February 9 and if you don’t you will go to prison for six months.

“But don’t think that is the end of it as even if you do go to prison you will still have to pay that money back after you have been released.”

At his original sentencing, in July, prosecutor Jonathan Dee said officers became aware than an IP (internet protocol) address linked to Kamsika was downloading indecent images and a warrant was issued at his address in Ashbourne Road in June last year.

He said: “The police search revealed far more than the computers with the indecent images.

“There was a cannabis grow, a professional one with four large plants and cannabis hanging in a variety of rooms and a number of bags.

“In total there was 1.5kg of cannabis.”

Mr Dee said the computer analysis of Kamsika’s homemade computer found 89 category B movies or images and 4,400 category C.

He added that a work laptop was also found to have been used to look at the same pictures and films.

He said: “The children appeared to be aged 10 or older and he had carried out searches on the internet using terms such as ‘Lolita’ and ‘pre-teen’.”

Kamsika pleaded guilty to possessing the indecent images, production of cannabis, possession with intent to supply cannabis and possession of amphetamine.

At that hearing, Judge Peter Cooke handed him a 16-month priosn sentence, suspended for two years, a 10-year sexual harm prevention order, ordered him to carry out 120 hours unpaid work and 20 rehabilitation days where he will be assessed by the professionals from the probation service.
