Child porn conviction
Blue Mountains Gazette – Wednesday, 25 May 2005

A 41-year-old man from Hazelbrook has been given a suspended sentence for being found guilty of possessing child pornography.

Richard James Crlik was issued with a Section 12 good behaviour bond by Justice George Zdenkowski at Katoomba Court earlier this month.

He must abide by all the conditions of the bond or the prison sentence will immediately take effect.

Conditions of the bond include:

– accepting the supervision and guidance and complying with all reasonable directions of the probation and parole service;

– undertaking and completing such programs and counselling as may be directed;

– being of good behaviour; and

– not using any computer connected to the internet without prior authority of the probation and parole service.

Court notes available to the public reveal police received information from Strike Force Auxin on September 27, 2004 relating to Mr Crlik accessing child pornography web sites dating back to 2003.

After obtaining a search warrant, Blue Mountains police seized a number of computer hard drives, about 300 CD-Roms and 30 floppy disks from Mr Crlik’s premises on September 28, 2004.

On examining the seized items the following day, police found that two of the hard drives contained pornographic images depicting young boys in sexual positions and perfoming sexual acts.

Mr Crlik was arrested by police and charged with possessing child pornography.

In a recorded interview at Katoomba police station on October 3, 2004, the accused freely admitted accessing and subscribing to child pornography sites on the internet, paying for these subsriptions with his credit card and downloading images of males under the age of 16.

A sample of images and video files were found saved to two CD-Roms belonging to Mr Crlik.

Mr Crlik’s sentence report states Mr Crlik was a school teacher for 12 years at Westmead public school, but his teaching career ceased upon his employer learning of the present conviction.
