Director jailed for child porn

GORDON CLARK | 20th January 2010

THE head of a leading Sunshine Coast event management business yesterday distanced himself from a former director of the company who has been jailed on charges of accessing child pornography websites.

Enzo Giuliano will spend five months behind bars after police found an estimated 1000 images of child pornography on his computer.

Mr Giuliano was a director of The Event Truck Company for two years, but the company’s managing director Rod White said he was as surprised as everyone else when he learned of the charges.

“I’m shocked at what happened,” Mr White said.

“I brought him in as a driver two years after I started the business. He was a director but he left two years later of his own accord – which was about three years ago,” Mr White said.

“I’ve had no involvement with him whatsoever since then.”

Computer records used as evidence showed Mr Giuliano had been looking at child pornography websites for two years before he was caught.

Mr Giuliano was sentenced to 15 months jail, to be released after serving five months.

Director ‘drawn’ to porn images

Sarah Crawford | 19th January 2010

A FORMER Sunshine Coast businessman will spend the next five months behind bars after police found an estimated 1000 child pornographic images on his computer.

Enzo Giuliano, a former director of an events management company, The Event Truck Company, pleaded guilty to regularly accessing some 11 child pornography websites which had sexually explicit images of children as young as four.

The married 45-year-old told police he did not look at the child pornography for sexual gratification but because of a macabre curiosity.

In a police interview he said it was “like looking at a car accident.”

“I know I shouldn’t look ’cause it is gory and horrible … and I would look anyway,” he said.

Crown legal officer Nicholas Hanly said police were alerted to Mr Giuliano after he took the hard drive of his computer to The Disk Shop, at Maroochydore, for a service on August 2, 2008.

Two days later the staff at the shop called police when they found deleted images of child pornography and evidence that child pornography websites had been accessed from the computer.

Mr Hanly said police found sexually explicit images of children aged between four and 16. An estimated 150 images were classed in the worst category for child pornography.

Police looked at 16,000 of the 100,000 images on the computer and found 173 of those images were child pornography.

From that examination police estimated that there must be around 1000 child pornographic images on the computer.

Most of the remaining images found on the computer were adult pornography.

Computer records showed that Mr Giuliano had been looking at child pornography websites for two years before he was caught.

Judge John Robertson said some of the images were “extremely distressing”.

“These offences are not victimless crimes, every one of these images involved actual use of a child in an appalling and disgusting way,” he said.

Judge Robertson sentenced Mr Giuliano to 15 months in jail, to be released after serving five months.

Upon release from jail Mr Giuliano will be on parole for two years.

The Daily tried to contact The Event Truck Company to confirm if Mr Giuliano was still the director of the company, but the phone calls were not returned.
