Prison for man over child porn

A MAYFIELD man who claimed he got no sexual gratification from more than 500 images and movies of child pornography that were on his computer was sentenced yesterday to a minimum of 10 months in jail.

Judge Laura Wells said she found it difficult to accept that people who viewed such material could experience anything other than revulsion or sexual gratification.

She sentenced Errol Francis Mayo, 59, of Macquarie Street, to two years and four months’ imprisonment with a non-parole period of 10 months. With time served, he will be eligible for release in May.

Of the 544 images, 19 were in the worst category while 32 of the 70 short movies that were found on the computer were in the second-worst category of child pornography, Newcastle District Court heard.

Mayo was caught by his wife viewing some of the images in June 2009, Judge Wells said.

The wife went to the police without telling Mayo, and allowed officers to seize the computer so it could be analysed.

A Mayfield man found in possession of child pornography that was described as being in the worst category was jailed for a minimum of 10 months this morning.

Errol Francis Mayo, 60, of Macquarie Street, previously pleaded guilty to possessing hundreds of images and video files on his home computer.

Some of the images and videos depicted children being sexually assaulted and subjected to violence by men.

He will be eligible for parole in May.

Mayfield man’s guilty plea on porn

A MAYFIELD man caught viewing child pornography by his wife told a court that he didn’t know why he compiled 544 images and 70 video files on his home computer.

Errol Francis Mayo’s former wife did not tell him that she had caught him viewing the material one night in June 2009, Newcastle District Court heard.

Instead, she went straight to the police, who seized the computer and conducted a series of interviews with Mayo, 60, before he was eventually charged with producing or possessing child pornography.

Of the 544 images, 19 of them were in the worst category while 32 of the 70 short movies that were found on the computer were in the second-worst category of child pornography.

Mayo previously pleaded guilty and he will be sentenced by Judge Laura Wells next week.

He told the court yesterday that he did not receive any sexual gratification from the pornography.

He said his collection of the files started out as a curiosity, but he could not explain why he continued to download the images and videos and store them on his hard-drive.

“I can’t really answer that,” he replied when he was asked why he collected so many files.

Mayo, of Macquarie Street, said his wife had left him, but he still had the support of his family.

“I’ve got wonderful family support . . . I’ve brought shame on the family name,” he said.

“I’ll never do it again . . . It’s only now that I realise that it’s very, very wrong.”

He was refused bail.
