SENTENCE UPDATE – SPARED JAIL….!!!! David Carey has pleaded guilty to possessing 9,000 ‘extremely offensive’ pictures.
A man has been spared prison after being caught with 9,000 ‘disgusting’ images of children – including ones showing the abuse of babies.
Hundreds of them were classed as category A – the most serious.
David Carey, 34, pleaded guilty to 13 offences including downloading, possessing and distributing indecent pictures and videos at Newcastle Crown Court.
The court heard he also had 73 images and 91 movies of extreme bestiality pornography in which people had sex with animals.
Carey, who lives with his elderly mum, admitted a total of 13 offences covering the period of 2012 to 2016.
Prosecutor Emma Dowling told Newcastle Crown Court: ‘The officer gives a full description of the images, which he says were some of the worst he has seen.
As well as possessing the vile library, he confessed to having distributed some of the child abuse images to others.
Recorder Andrew Dallas sentenced Carey, who had no previous convictions, to two years in prison – suspended for two years.
He said, ‘I accept there is a very low risk that you are likely to re-offend.’
