Paedo caught with 30,253 child abuse images and videos

Pervert Istvan Gyurisa has been caught with 30,253 child abuse images and videos – and he stored some of them in his ‘paedo pix’ folder.

Police discovered the stash – including 3,276 extreme pornographic images – after raiding the 30-year-old’s Bentilee home on September 20.

They arrested the defendant and seized a laptop and smartphone from his Brundall Oval home.

Prosecutor David Bennett told Stoke-on-Trent Crown Court: “Some of those images involved the rape of toddlers and baby girls, who were clearly distressed. They are real images of children in a distressed state.”

The extreme pornographic images included ‘adults with horses and dogs’.

He added: “The defendant had been searching for images of children he had stored in files he had created. One was called ‘paedo pix’.

“He suggested he was sexually attracted to children and asked if there was some kind of programme he could get on.

“He accepted searching and downloading images, not realising it was an offence in the UK. He is a Hungarian national.”

The defendant has already been in contact with the Lucy Faithfull Foundation.

Stuart Muldoon, mitigating said: “This defendant has been extremely frank regarding his sexual activity. Unusually, he acknowledges he found the images sexually satisfying which is a big step. He is someone who is starting on the road to rehabilitation.

“He is now working full-time. If he were to go to custody he would lose that job and it would be difficult to secure employment.”

Gyurisa admitted three counts of making indecent images of children and one count of possessing extreme pornographic images. He has been jailed for 12 months. He is also subject to a 10-year Sexual Harm Prevention Order.

Judge Dean Kershaw told him: “This is very serious. You had a large number of images on two devices.

“You were saying to police you were not interested in young children – of course you were.”
