FBI traps child pornography fiend

Rae Wilson | 7th December 2010

A SUNSHINE Coast man was jailed yesterday for downloading images and movies of babies and children engaged in sexual acts of incest, bestiality and bondage.

Police, acting on an FBI tip-off, raided Adam Stanley Lamb’s home and found almost 20,000 photographs and movies.

They were on two external hard drives, a laptop and a mobile phone when police raided his house in May this year.

Mr Lamb had used his credit card to subscribe and access child pornography websites.

Police received a tip-off after the FBI informed online payment company Paypal in Switzerland in January 2007 about Mr Lamb’s downloads and had his credit card cancelled.

Judge John Robertson described the material as “shocking” and “horrifying” when Mr Lamb faced Maroochydore District Court.

“They include quite appalling images of child abuse of the most depraved kind,” he said.

Police found 1523 movies and 17464 images across the four data sources at his home.

Children as young as six months of age could be seen engaging in sexual acts with adult men and women as well as other children.

In one video, a child aged under three years had her mouth covered with insulation tape while a male and female sexually assaulted her.

Another video involved a blindfolded six-year-old girl and a dog.

In other movies, a two-year-old could be seen sucking her thumb and an eight-year-old girl could be seen kicking and screaming while they were sexually assaulted.

Crown prosecutor Greg Cummings asked the court to consider “the sheer volume” of child exploitation material, the young age of the children, and the serious sexual assaults adults perpetrated against children in deciding on sentence.

Barrister Frank Martin said many of the images on the two external hard drive were duplicates, that the laptop was rusted out and unusable, and the mobile phone was not his client’s current phone when police did the raid.

He said Mr Lamb stopped downloading child pornography in 2007 when Paypal cancelled his account.

Mr Martin said Mr Lamb had worked at Big W, Dick Smith and Night Owl on the Coast.

He said the incident had been a wake-up call he needed to seek professional help over abuse he suffered as a child.

“He would like to apologise to his family, friends and the community,” he said.

Mr Lamb must serve six months of an 18-month jail sentence.

The balance will hang over his head for two years.

Most of the details submitted to the court were too graphic for the Daily to publish.
