More than 70 indecent images of boys found on Flint man’s mobile phone

Police called to a report of a domestic disturbance were told by the man’s partner that he had indecent images of children on his phone.

It was alleged Grzegorz Aleksandrowicz had laughed when he saw a film of a girl being raped and he would go into a room alone when he looked at images of boys being abused.

Mold Crown Court was told police analysed his phone and no film of female rape was discovered.

But more than 70 indecent images of boys were found together with 18 prohibited images.

The 33-year-old defendant, at the time of Earl Street in Flint but now staying temporarily with friends in Ffordd Llewelyn in the town, admitted making by downloading and possessing the images.

He received an eight month prison sentence suspended for two years and was placed on 60 days rehabilitation.

Aleksandrowicz was ordered to register with the police as a sex offender for a decade.

Mr Recorder Simon Mills said while there had been no contact offences he found it necessary to make a 10-year sexual harm prevention order under which he was not to have any unsupervised contact with children.

Aleksandrowicz did not have a permanent address and the judge said he did not like the idea of the defendant – a man with mental health and drink problems – turning up at a house where there were young children.

The court heard Aleksandrowicz and his partner were still together.

They were living with friends until they were able to get housing association accommodation together.

The court heard that defendant had refused to discuss the issue of the images and refused to look at them in his police interview.

The judge said while he denied having a sexual interest in children, he had expressed remorse for what he had done.

Barrister Jade Tufail, prosecuting, said in April police responded to a domestic incident involving his partner.

No charges arose from that.

But the partner told police he was aware that the defendant was accessing images of child sex abuse.

He said Aleksandrowicz had watched a film of a girl aged five being raped and laughed in his presence.

Aleksandrowicz would also look at images of young boys but would go to a bedroom alone to view them.

Police found images involving boys aged between five and 12.
