Alice man jailed over child porn images

Posted Thu Jul 7, 2005 1:26pm AEST

A 37-year-old Alice Springs man will spend a month in jail for possessing almost 3,000 images of child pornography.

In September last year, Simon Arne Henricks was charged with downloading about 2,800 images of child pornography onto his computer hard drive.

Today in Alice Springs Magistrates Court, Henricks was sentenced to three months in prison suspended after one month.

Magistrate Michael Carey told the court child pornography was a serious abuse of children that affected them throughout their lives.

But he said most of the images in Henricks’ possession fell into the least serious category and he had taken steps to address his problem.

Henricks will remain under supervision for 18 months and must attend counselling during that period.
