Web designer jailed over child porn pics

A 23-year-old Mid Wales web page designer has been jailed for six months after he was caught by his boss with more than 100 indecent pictures of girls as young as five on his computer.

Joseph James Hawcroft, of Welshpool, developed a "morbid curiosity" in child porn after he came across it accidently, Mold Crown Court heard yesterday.

Hawcroft admitted that he had a problem.

He was also placed on the sex offenders' register for five years.

A prosecution application to ban him from accessing the internet for five years under the new Sexual Prevention Act - which would have ruined his future livelihood - was rejected by Judge John Rogers QC.

Hawcroft, who admitted 16 counts of making indecent images of children and two counts of possessing images at Welshpool Magistrates Court last month, was told by Judge Rogers: "Those who access the internet to obtain indecent images of children have to go to prison."

The judge said the seriousness of what he had done was that it encouraged those who photographed children in indecent poses.

The court heard how indecent images, some of them of girls as young as five, were discovered on Hawcroft's computer at work.

Prosecuting barrister Caroline Harris said a director of the computer firm for which he worked had been suspicious that Hawcroft, of Broad Street, might have been working for a different company.

Hawcroft admitted in interview he downloaded the images at work and transferred some to CDs which he took home.

For a while I was a member of a photography critique web-site. It allowed nude and semi-pornographic photos. One day I saw a picture of a lovely little girl, fully dressed, in a portfolio situated between some rather degrading pictures of nude women. I commented that I found this to be inappropriate. My comment got seriously slammed by the photographer and his wife for my suggestion that this little girls photo should not be included with all of those other pictures.

I deleted all of my own photography from that web site, and purged my computer of any traces of ever having been there. The little girl was their grand-daughter. She wasn't naked or being abused. But her picture was inserted between images that you will never see on prime time TV.

How is it possible for the evil and ignorant to be so utterly self-rightious?
