A child porn viewer was told to take some blame for the filming of the brutal rape of a youngster.
Judge Jonathan Gosling, at Derby Crown Court, last month, jailed Paul Kitcheman for six months after the movie was found on a laptop in his former Clowne home.
He told Kitcheman: “There was a movie of the violent rape by an adult male of a young child. The damage caused by the activities of you and other people on children is incalculable and not just at the time the photographs or images are made.
“These images are always there for people like you to watch. People like you are the market and the reason why those images are created.”
Sarah Allen, prosecuting, said police analysts found the images after visiting his home in January.
Kitcheman went to a “sharing site and made reference to young girls” but there was no evidence to suggest he distributed any items.
“He said that he didn’t approve of possessing indecent images but accepted that he had viewed some,” Ms Allen said. When questioned on July 24, Kitcheman said he had received images by mistake and deleted them.
Dale Harris, mitigating, said Kitcheman had been reckless as to which images were downloaded and he has had marriage difficulties.
Mr Harris added that Kitcheman had brought a deep sense of shame and embarrassment to his family.
Kitcheman, 44, now of Bullen Road, Sheffield admitted six counts of downloading indecent images. He was put on the Sex Offenders’ Register for seven years and is banned from working with children.
