Pervert jailed for his ‘disturbing’ interest in young children
A pervert with a ‘predilection’ for young children has been jailed for 16 months after disturbing images in a child sexual abuse.
Craig Reiblein’s ‘double-life’ as a high-earning employee and sexual deviant was exposed when he was arrested by police.
The 38-year-old sought out like-minded people to discuss their sexual desires before starting to share indecent images in a private chat room on a social media app with a ‘dominant’ man giving him directions
When pleased carried out an examination of Reiblein’s electronic devices revealed more than a thousand indecent images with 102 being in the highest range of Category A.
Nigel Soppitt, prosecuting, said: “He was quite frank with the police and said he got sexual gratification from the child images. He said he started looking at 18-year-olds and they got progressively younger.”
Reiblein, of Windsor Road, Middlesbrough, pleaded guilty to distribution of indecent images and possession of Category A, B and C images following the raid in February last year.
Judge Howard Crowson said “The discussions that I have read reveal a very disturbing interest in sexual abuse of children and it is for that reason I do consider that a sexual harm prevention order (SHPO) is necessary and proportionate in your case”
Reiblein was jailed for 16 months and given a ten-year SHPO.
