Child Porn Man Back in Jail

A DERWENT Valley nurse who swapped images from his horrific collection of child pornography is back in jail.
Lindsay Gordon Latham, 52, of New Norfolk, served a four month term of imprisonment after pleading guilty to 93 counts of possessing, producing and distributing child exploitation material.
After an appeal from Director of Public Prosecutions Tim Ellis, the Court of Criminal Appeal today found that sentence was manifestly inadequate and sent Latham to jail for a minimum of a year.
The court said Latham pretended to be a 27-year-old woman in online chats and discussed his fantasies about rape, sadism torture, bestiality and genital mutilation involving children with other people online.
In one chat he talked of "snatching a kid".
"The seriousness of his conduct was compounded by the fact that he assumed the identity of a mother who gravely abused her children and encourages others to do so," Justice Peter Evans said in his judgment.
"These conversations cannot be dismissed as abhorrent but harmless fantasies."
In addition, Latham had on his computer 38,054 images depicting young girls, boys and babies engaged in sexual acts and images of children being tortured.
His crimes were unmasked in 2007 after a tip-off from US authorities monitoring a known child sex offender.
The Court of Criminal Appeal found that the sentence of ten months jail, with six months of the sentence suspended imposed by Justice Shan Tennant was not enough.
In his judgment, Justice David Porter said Latham's crimes were appalling.
"In my respectful view, the sentence failed to properly reflect the abhorrent and very insidious nature of the respondent's conduct," he said.
"He discussed, encouraged and promoted the sexual abuse and torture of children the subject of the particular images and of children generally."
It imposed a two-year sentence, with a non-parole period of one year.
Latham has already served 90 days.
