Loughton man who had a collection of child abuse and bestiality films has avoided jail
A Loughton man who had a collection of child abuse and bestiality films has avoided jail.
Carlos Pacheco, 51, was handed a suspended sentence this afternoon (February 20) of 16 months for four counts of possession of indecent images, with several of children as young as six.
The defendant’s laptop showed he actively searched for “young porn”, “pre-teen models” and “incest porn” on the internet.
Pacheco was arrested at his home on October 30, 2016, after a warrant was executed by Essex Police.
Two devices were seized, a laptop and hard drive.
Prosecuting, David Jones QC said: “There were DVDs found upstairs in a bedroom containing extreme pornographic imagery.
“Images were found on both devices within the search history.
“Analysis led to the discovery of indecent images including movies. The earliest date found on the images was on November 9, 2012.
“Bearing in mind the warrant was executed in 2016, there appears to be an interest in this material for four years.
“There was also some extreme imagery found as well involving bestiality. There had been particular searches conducted for terms like ‘young porn’, ‘pre teen models’ and ‘incest porn’.”
In fact, the term “young porn” was searched for just three days before his arrest.
Movies showing child abuse were found on his laptop depicting an adult male raping a young girl.
“He denied he had been searching for school girls and pre-teens,” said Mr Jones.
“The defendant said he looked at normal pornography approximately once a week.
“He denied he had any interest in extreme or animal pornography. He denied he had intentionally searched for this type of porn.”
