A SOUTHAMPTON man was found with hundreds of pictures of children - just nine days after he had received a suspended sentence for a similar offence.

Police making a check on Robert Young discovered he had downloaded about 1,500 images of youngsters whose ages ranged from five to 13, the city crown court heard.

Young, of Arthur Road, Shirley, appeared for sentence the day after his 67th birthday for possessing the material which he had admitted.

Judge Peter Ralls QC jailed him for 10 months and activated six months of the original eight month term sentence to run consecutively.

Are these images he has taken himself or are they from the internet? Either way, do the parents of these children know, and if they are ones he has taken himself, how did he get access to the children? I pray that support is put in place for those who were abused.

Hope this person gets help, children as young of 5 makes me feel sick.
How do you find children attractive? It's just wrong.
I hope they trace the children and give them help, so they don't leave themselves open to abuse by monsters like this.

Perhaps one day those in charge will realise that such addictions are caused by demons and demonic possession. I bet 99% of you reading this are laughing and saying there is no such thing! Just because, like those in charge, you deny God, it doesn't make Him unreal.

I think you may be possessed in order to write such a ridiculous thing.

Filthy pervert. These paedo's should be castrated. Prison offers a rehabilitation programme, how the heck can it work on a paedo?
I don't think it can, they are just too far gone. We need an island in the middle of nowhere to leave them there to rot.

Pathetic sentence, his demand for these sort of pictures creates a need for children to suffer.

The death penalty was abolished for all good reason.

It's uncivilised, it carries the risk or murdering the innocent, in countries that used the death penalty and still do crime rates still remain. How can a country teach that a committed crime is wrong by killing?

All criminals, if convicted should spend the appropriate amount of time in prison and the sentence should reflect the severity of their crime.
