Public servant jailed for interfering with girl

Posted October 22, 2008 14:14:00

A 41-year-old Darwin public servant has been sentenced to four years in jail, three of them suspended, for interfering with an underage girl and possessing hundreds of images of child pornography.

But Simon Pugh has been given a suspended sentence and will be released next month.

Pugh pleaded guilty to several offences relating to indecently touching a 12-year-old girl and taking photos of her in various states of undress.

He was also found guilty of possessing hundreds of images of child pornography, including dozens which depicted actual sex between adults and children.

Supreme Court judge Stephen Southwood said Pugh had contributed to the exploitation, violation and abuse of children.

The judge also told the court the 12-year-old girl said she had been depressed since her contact with Pugh.

The judge said he accepted that Pugh felt remorseful and may be rehabilitated through therapy.

Pugh has been in custody since last November and will be released next month.

    So Northern Territory is where these pigs can go to get away with light pathetic sentences. I wonder if the judge remembered Cowan committed his first offence there and got 2 years and paroled after one, and look what he went on to do. This Pugh does a year and gets 3 suspended and she gets life. Where is the justice
