Girl’s abuser jailed for eight years

Posted Wed Aug 2, 2006 3:16pm AEST

A Darwin man who sexually abused a nine-year-old girl and took graphic photos of her naked has been sentenced to eight years in prison.

Colin Broadwith, 51, first started abusing the girl in 2003.

Over the next two years he took naked photos of her, forced her to watch pornographic movies and sexually abused her.

In 2004 police seized Broadwith’s computer and found child pornography images.

Broadwith bought another computer and police later found 500 images on it.

He was sentenced for that crime in 2005 but earlier this year police realised some images were of Broadwith abusing a child.

He pleaded guilty to all six counts of child abuse that he was charged with.

Chief Justice Brian Martin said Broadwith showed a lack of empathy and remorse towards his victim and sentenced him to eight years in prison with a non-parole period of six years.
