Man pleads guilty to possessing child abuse images

Posted Tue Apr 4, 2006 2:01pm AEST

A Yulara man has pleaded guilty in Alice Springs Magistrates Court to possessing hundreds of images of child abuse.

Police searched the home of luxury resort manager Michael John Ruff, 45, in September last year.

They found 810 still images and 31 movies depicting children in sexual poses or involved in sexual acts on a laptop and two compact discs in his bedroom.

Prosecutor Nanette Rogers told the court the images ranged in severity – the worst involved an infant being assaulted while lying in its cot and other young children dressed in bondage.

During sentencing submissions, Ruff’s defence lawyer said his client did not seek out the material and received no sexual gratification from the images.

Ruff is due to be sentenced next Thursday.
