A Hobart father’s been sentenced to 17 months jail for downloading thousands child pornography images.

The Supreme Court in Hobart heard Casboult downloaded 35 thousand images and more than five-hundred videos involving young girls, some depicting sadism and bestiality.

A FATHER of an eight-year-old girl kept a huge collection of child pornography, a court has heard.

Nicholas Bernard Casboult, 47, of Claremont, downloaded tens of thousands of images and hundreds of videos including some depicting children in sex acts with adults and animals, the Supreme Court heard yesterday.

Casboult pleaded guilty to using a carriage service to access child pornography and possessing child pornography.

Commonwealth prosecutor Elizabeth Curtis said federal police agents raided Casboult’s home in June, 2009, after a tip-off from Interpol.

Casboult’s defence lawyer Andrei Slicer said: “He is remorseful, he is embarrassed, he is ashamed.”

He was remanded in custody for sentence next week.
