Wilderness man sentenced

A man from Wilderness was sentenced in the George Regional Court on Friday 6 July 2018 to an effective 8 years behind bars after pleading guilty to possession of more than 56 000 images and videos containing child pornography.

Tyrone James was arrested in March 2016 during a routine inspection at a road block. He was initially arrested for possession of illegal substances, but while attempting to make a phone call, an alert officer of the law noticed pornographic images on the cell phone James was using.

During a search of his residence, police came across computer hard drives containing more than 56000 images and video material of illegal pornography. Police also confiscated 40 marijuana plants from the property.

In May of 2018, James pleaded guilty to the possession of illegal pornographic material and stated that he never manufactured any of the material. He also told the court that he did not distribute any of the material, and that he kept the material for personal use only.

James was sentenced to 12 years imprisonment of which four years was suspended for a period of four years. He also received a four year suspended sentence for the possession of illegal substances. The sentences will run concurrently.
