Man, 35, caught with child abuse images on his computer

PERVERT Jamie Rivett-Carnac downloaded indecent images of children and watched clips of people having sex with animals.

The 35-year-old was arrested after police searched his Newcastle home and seized his computer.

Experts found images covering all three categories 

And they found extreme pornographic images of humans having sex with animals.

Now Rivett-Carnac has been handed a three-year community order at Stoke-on-Trent Crown Court.

Prosecutor Robert Price said police searched the defendant’s home on August 28.

Mr Price said: “The children were all pre-pubescent. There had been systematic searches over a period of time for indecent images of young boys.

“The extreme video clips show various acts of intercourse between animals and people.”

In his police interview the defendant said he looked at the images out of curiosity. He said he was sexually aroused by the indecent images of children. He added he wanted help.

Rivett-Carnac, of Northcote Place, Newcastle, pleaded guilty to three charges of making indecent photographs of children and three offences of possessing an extreme pornographic image.

Andrew Turnock, mitigating, said Rivett-Carnac can be rehabilitated in the community.

Judge Paul Glenn sentenced him to a three-year community order with supervision and a requirement to complete the internet sex offenders’ programme.

He was placed on the sex offenders’ register for five years and was barred from a range of activities involving children and vulnerable adults.

Judge Glenn said: “It beggars belief that anyone can find any of this material remotely enjoyable. Those movies were disgusting. I suspect you now understand the gravity of the offences you committed. These are real children being abused.”

He added: “There is a degree of social isolation, possibly social inadequacy.

“I think at this stage of your life you need some help and guidance. It is unlikely this court or any other court will see you again. I think you are capable of putting this behind you. It is appropriate to make a community order as a direct alternative to custody.
