    Man jailed for child porn after wife donates DVD containing images to Charity shop

    Gulf War veteran is jailed for eight months after he admits possession of 14,000 indecent images of children



    A Gulf War veteran who downloaded thousands of child porn images was caught when his unsuspecting wife donated a DVD containing the material to charit



    By Martin Evans, Crime Correspondent



    Mark Rooks, 52, a former RAF bomb disposal officer had stored the sickening images on a DVD, that ended up in a pile of books and other items his wife gave to charity shop in Lincoln.

    He was caught after a customer bought nine DVDs for 1 and was horrified to discover the child abuse images when h
    e put one of the discs into his machine.

    The police were able to trace Rooks when they discovered that he had unwittingly included his passport details on one of the DVDs.

    Justin Wigoder, prosecuting, told Lincoln Crown Court: "This case arises because the customer bought nine DVDs for 1 thinking he could do something with them.


    Mark Rooks, 52, had stored the sickening


    When the customer took them home he opened the first one and he discovered it had the defendant's passport and an amount of adult pornography.


    "He looked at other discs and one contained a number of items of child pornography."


    The charity shop customer contacted police and Rooks was identified from the passport details.


    When officers raided his home they discovered thousands of child porn images saved on a USB stick.


    Rooks admitted that he had been viewing child porn images for the past 10 years.


    He admitted possession of 13,969 indecent images of children between January 2008 and July 2013.


    He also admitted five charges of making indecent images by downloading them from the internet and was jailed for eight months.

    Judge Sean Morris told him: "These images are horrific. Some involved extremely young children."


    Alex Rynn, defending, said: "He has lost his job over this and he has lost his wife. She is seeing a solicitor and is filing for divorce."


    The court heard that Rooks had a lengthy career in the RAF including service with a frontline squadron during the Gulf War

    Scenario?

    Wife wants divorce for whatever reason
    Would like to kill the bugger but that is a bit risky
    Knows hubby ,like most men, surf porn.
    Finds or creates offending stored pics
    Adds passport scan to one disc
    Puts in desirable movie sleeves and donates to charity shop
    Hopes or arranges for purchase

    Hubby gets nicked
    Wife gets everything in divorce with minimum hassles

    Could start a new trend?
    ???????

    ^^^ you'd a thought a half decent lawyer could of thought of that to create "reasonable doubt" and a half decent judge would dismiss or hand down a massive fine and saved the "system" thousands"???? They were pics after all ..he was not caught creating them or in any "act".

    No but if you stored them in your extensive wank bank on CD with the rest of your porn that would be a bit disturbing.

    I sort of think the "Wife Did It" story might not have stood up to scrutiny.

    Although one probably has to note that admitting it and getting 8 months might have been considered a better option than fighting it and maybe getting 8 years.....

    Rolf's case was scheduled for 30th April and absolutely nothing reported as yet, not even a postponement.


    This may have some relevancy.


    A Court Order was made by His Honour Judge Sweeney on 18 March 2014 postponing reporting of the proceedings which took place on 18 March 2014 pursuant to Section 4 (2) of the Contempt of Court Act 1981:

    The Order states that:

    "Any reporting of the proceedings on 18 March 2014 at the Crown Court at Southwark in the case of Regina v Rolf Harris, which involved pre-trial legal arguments, be postponed until further order - other than the fact that the hearing has taken place and that it has been adjourned to a further date in April to be fixed at this court before Easter."

    8 months?

    seems like a lenient sentence to me.
