Child porn principal denied home detention

CC001020160624

A former Waikato school principal has been jailed for two years and six-and-a-half months over charges relating to child pornography.

Fifty-one-year-old Bruce Darroch was earlier found guilty of four charges including making an objectionable publication and possessing objectionable material.

Darroch stood solemnly with his hands clasped as the court heard how he had shared stories online about his sexual fantasies with boys and shared images of children, including pupils at his school.

The former principal of Te Waotu School was also found to be in possession of hundreds of photos of child sex abuse.

One of his victims and the boy’s mother both shook and hugged as they read victim impact statements detailing the effect Darroch’s offending has had on their lives.

Judge Tony Snell said the extent of harm permeated right throughout Darroch’s community and he could not consider home detention in this case.

Two years six months for making child porn photographs.

It’s not enough.

    Both the viewing and sharing of child pornography are as causative as producing it. They are equally blameful.
    Will it ever be possible to prevent an individual’s access to the internet?
