Man with 70,000 child pornography images avoids jail

Posted Thu Apr 21, 2005 4:48pm AEST

A Canberra man has been given a suspended jail term after pleading guilty to possessing more than 70,000 images of child pornography.

Police raided the Banks home of 51-year-old David John Fairhall in September last year as part of an international crackdown on child pornography.

They seized his computer and CDs, and found the thousands of images plus more than 24-hours of video footage of child pornography.

In sentencing, chief magistrate Ron Cahill described the offence as nasty and vile, but said Fairhall had done all he could to ensure he does not reoffend.

He imposed a 12-month suspended jail term and ordered Fairhall be assessed for entry into a sex offenders program.
