  • Jailed for five years over ‘worst category’ of images
  • Judge says he contributed to children’s sexual exploitation

A VICTORIAN man caught with more than 50,000 child pornography images, including some in the “worst category”, has been jailed for five years.

Ian David Blundell, 31, was found by police with 56,767 child porn images, 1608 videos and 963 documents and stories.

The images included babies as young as six months and torture.

The Victorian County Court heard that 31-year-old Blundell downloaded the images “almost daily” for three years between 2005 and 2008.

He pleaded guilty to charges of knowingly possessing child pornography, using a carriage service to transmit child pornography and making or producing child pornography.

The producing charge relates to him copying the material onto CDs, the court was told.

Judge Sue Pullen said the images comprised the “worst category” of child pornography and included babies as young as six months.

There were images of torture, bondage and bestiality.

Victims were distressed and crying, tied up and held down, Judge Pullen said.

Blundell’s conduct must be regarded as “having contributed to the sexual exploitation of children”, she said.

“There is no doubt child pornography is an international problem,” Judge Pullen said.

“Your criminality in my opinion is at the high end of the scale.”

The court heard Blundell is a disability support pensioner who has bipolar disorder.

Blundell, of Morwell, in eastern Victoria, was jailed for five years with a non-parole period of three.
