Judge dismisses excuse of paedophile who had over 5,000 ‘repugnant’ images of children
Sickening images of babies being sexually abused and drugged children being raped were amongst a paedophile’s collection of indecent images.
Twisted Connor Coxon, from Middlesbrough, was found with more than 5,000 indecent images of children.
However the 29-year-old claims that he was “thrill seeking” and does not have a sexual interest in them.
Teesside Crown Court heard how police received information and searched his home in July 2019.
Jonathan Gittins, prosecuting, said officers seized a number of devices including a laptop, USB sticks and a mobile phone.
He told the court: “5,305 indecent images of children were found across three of the devices.”
Mr Gittins said that there were:
842 still and 79 moving category A images – the most serious
2,650 still and 13 moving category B images
1,719 still images and two moving category C images
