Perverted pensioner hoarded vile sex abuse movies and filmed himself with children’s pants
A 72-year-old man has been given a suspended sentence after police raided his home in Devon and found dozens of child abuse movies on his computer.
Raymond Priem, from Bridgerule nr Holsworthy, also made recordings of himself sexually aroused by children’s clothes underwear.
He searched the internet for vile images and movies of children and babies being abused by adults.
The judge at Exeter Crown Court said he had concerns about Priem’s sexual interest in children.
“It’s a shocking catalogue of images of an extreme nature,” he said.
Police seized 79 movies in the most serious category of abuse when they executed a warrant at his address in Bridgerule on April 3 last year. A further 86 indecent images and movies of children were also found.
Prosecutor Ms Caroline Bolt said of ‘particular concern’ were some Category C images taken by the defendant on his own camera.
She said Priem took photos of his erect penis next to the screen images of children.
There were also chat logs discussing the use of children’s underwear in a sexual context. Priem took photos of children’s pants and dresses and of himself masturbating. He made a point of showing the label on the pants with the ages 9-10.
He initially told police he did not have a sexual interest in children but later admitted he was ashamed of himself.
Judge Timothy Rose said: “I’m pleased to see from your own expressions of understanding and personal remorse and insight you’ve shown that your are beginning to understand the relevance of your role in this type of sexual abuse perpetrated against these exceptionally young children
“You and people like you are part of the problem and contribute to the abuse of these children because you are providing a market for them.”
Priem was jailed for 16 months but the sentence was suspended for two years. He was also told to do 40 days of rehabilitation work wth probation and sign a Sexual Harm Prevention Order to restrict his access to children.
