Llanfairfechan man had thousands of images of children on his computer
A man who once ran a computer repair shop felt shame after downloading child sexual abuse images, a judge heard on Friday when he made a two-year community order.
Clive Whittaker, 62, now retired, admitted making hundreds of indecent images. But Caernarfon crown court heard police found a further 45,000 uncategorised images of children after forcing entry into his home in Pen y Bryn, Llanfairfechan, last September.
Judge Huw Rees made a sexual harm prevention order and Whittaker must register as a sex offender for five years.
He said the community order wasn’t a “soft option.”
Judge Rees told married Whittaker: ”By the nature of the images and ages of the children, it’s easy to conclude these children would have been vulnerable. Showing any perverted interest creates a demand for further abuse of children to take place.”
