Jailed pervert’s 521,395 indecent images
A pervert who downloaded so many indecent images of children that police cybercrime officers stopped counting once they passed half a million was jailed for 22 months yesterday.
Bryan Reid, 46, was caught with 521,395 indecent images of girls – ranging from newborns to 15-year-olds – and nearly five days’ worth of pornographic videos which he stored in hard drives at his Buckie home.
Police investigators eventually had to admit it would take months of
“Those who view such material create a demand”
additional work if they were to catalogue every depraved image.
Sheriff Chris Dickson told Reid, of the Old Mariners House in the Yardie area: “Those who view such material create a demand and is part of the serious abuse of children.”
Reid was also placed on the sex offenders register for 10 years.
Of the 521,395 indecent images found, 5,270 were category A – the most graphic type – 6,468 category B and 509,657 category C. There were also 1,395 videos.
Reid had previously admitted taking, permitting or making indecent photographs or pseudo-photographs of children and possessing them.
