Child porn offender to appeal

Posted 1 hour 4 minutes ago

A former defence force member has been granted permission to appeal against his jail sentence for child pornography offences.

Matthew Gridley, 23, was sentenced to two-and-a-half years’ jail with a non-parole period of one year and eight months after pleading guilty to five child pornography offences.

The Adelaide District Court previously heard Gridley sent a 14-year-old Victorian girl indecent videos and stories he wrote and encouraged her to commit sexual acts.

The sentencing judge acknowledged the offending cost Gridley his dream career in the Air Force, but said child pornography was an insidious evil in society and the offending was serious.

Gridley wants to argue his sentence should be reduced or suspended.

He was granted permission to appeal and will face the Court of Criminal Appeal later.

Child porn conviction ends cadet’s dream career

An Air Force cadet has been jailed for sending child pornography to an underage girl, including inappropriate anime cartoons.

Matthew James Gridley, 23, pleaded guilty to offences including producing, possessing and disseminating child pornography and inciting an indecent act by a child.

The Adelaide District Court heard he met a 14-year-old Victorian girl on an art-sharing website last year and sent her indecent videos and stories he had written.

Gridley encouraged the girl to commit sexual acts.

The court heard Gridley made full admissions to police and cooperated with their investigation.

His lawyer previously told the court Gridley moved from Victoria to work in the Air Force and started using social networking because he had few friends.

She said Gridley knew he would be asked to leave the Air Force after his sentencing.

‘Devastating’

Judge Wayne Chivell acknowledged the offending had cost Gridley his dream career but said the offences were too serious to suspend a jail term.

“This has been devastating for you as a career in the Air Force had been a long-term aspiration for you,” he said.

“Convictions for these offences will constitute a severe impediment in any new career you might aspire to.”

Judge Chivell said an immediate jail term was the only appropriate penalty.

“This is very serious offending. In my view child pornography is an insidious evil in our society,” he said.

“You used that material to influence a suggestible child to debase herself in front of a camera for your own sexual gratification.”

Gridley was jailed for two-and-a-half years with a non-parole term of one year and eight months.

Air Force cadet admits to child porn

An Air Force cadet has pleaded guilty to child sex offences, including producing pornography.

Matthew James Gridley, 22, of Mawson Lakes in Adelaide’s northern suburbs was arrested last November and charged with offences allegedly committed at Mawson Lakes between January and September last year.

The defence force previously issued a statement saying it was aware of the arrest and had found that no defence assets or activities were involved.

At an arraignment hearing in the District Court in Adelaide, Gridley has pleaded guilty to producing, disseminating and possessing child pornography and to procuring a child to commit an indecent act and making communication for a prurient purpose.

His lawyer has sought a lengthy adjournment to gather forensic and psychological reports.

There are to be sentencing submissions in November.

Air force cadet on child porn charges

The Adelaide District Court has heard the case against an air force cadet charged with child sex crimes is likely to be resolved by negotiation.

Matthew James Gridley, 22, of Mawson Lakes is charged with producing, possessing and disseminating child pornography, as well as procuring a child to commit an indecent act and making a communication for a prurient purpose.

The offences allegedly were committed between January and September last year.

The court previously heard some of the pornography included inappropriate anime cartoons.

Gridley faced court for an arraignment hearing, but the case was adjourned to allow negotiations between prosecution and defence counsel about whether they can agree on a factual basis for the offending.

The court heard the matter may be resolved by the time another hearing is held in a fortnight.
