A WEST Hobart man who downloaded and stored more than two million child pornography images has been jailed for two years.

Ross Andrew Cooper, 47, of West Hobart, will serve a minimum of 18 months in prison.

He will also be placed on the sex offenders register for five years.

In the Supreme Court in Hobart today Justice Shan Tennant said that Cooper had amassed material from more than 100 internet sites, depicting thousands of children.

By paying for the material, Cooper had helped create a market for child pornography, Justice Tennant said.

Police had discovered Cooper’s cache of images after investigating an indecent assault on a 13-year-old girl that was staying with him last year.

Cooper pleaded guilty to two child pornography charges, saying he was addicted to the material.
