A MAN who stored and distributed child porn images in la Mata (Torrevieja) on Spain’s Costa Blanca has been given a suspended two years jail sentence. 

Police investigators spotted the images of children having sex with adults during ongoing internet monitoring and traced their origin to an IP address in Torrevieja. 

Officers were able to track this to a property in la Mata where they conducted a search and seized material stored in a computer and a mobile phone, which had been downloaded through file exchange programs.

The convicted man also shared the videos and images to other users. 

In its brief, the Public Prosecutor’s Office describes very denigrating practices involving very young children, including babies, animals and high levels of physical violence. 

The convicted man admitted the facts and agreed to the sentence. 

As a result of these investigations, it was also possible to arrest other people who had downloaded and distributed the paedophile material. Judicial sources indicated that it is common for dozens of people to be arrested in these types of operation, since once agents have identified which file contains this material, it is easily traceable through the internet. 

The convicted man, will not be imprisoned as sentences of less than two years and a day are automatically suspended for first time offenders. The Public Prosecutor’s Office did not oppose the suspension of the sentence, provided that he does not offend again and participates in sex education programs. In addition, the convicted person will be on probation for three years.
