Bradford Pedophile Jailed for Downloading Over 21,000 Images of Child Porn from the Dark Web

prison jail stabbed

He had been given community sentences in the past but his offending continued

A convicted pedophile who used “the dark web” to amass a huge collection of depraved child abuse images and videos has been jailed for three years and nine months.

When specialist police investigators analysed devices taken from Dean Faulkner’s home in July 2019 they found he had installed “a dark web browser” and had made his collection available to other pedophiles.

Prosecutor Rebecca Young revealed that Faulkner, of Mayo Avenue, Bradford, had previously been given community orders in 2013 and 2014 for possession of indecent images and offences involving his sexual abuse of two young girls.

He had also been made the subject of a sexual offences protection order after his conviction in January 2014 and it was during a monitoring visit under that order that his continued offending was discovered.

The police seized various electronic storage devices during the visit in 2019 and Miss Young told Bradford Crown Court yesterday (Mon) that in total 21,113 images and videos of child abuse were discovered.

Faulkner admitted in a police interview that he had been downloading images again after he lost his job and accepted that a sex offender treatment programme he had completed hadn’t worked.

Faulkner pleaded guilty at a previous court hearing to possessing indecent images, possessing extreme pornography relating to images of women having sex with animals, possessing prohibited images of children and breaching the terms of his sexual offences protection order.

Judge Jonathan Rose described the material downloaded by Faulkner as “disgusting and revolting” and said it was beyond comprehension that a man could want to view such images and videos of babies and toddlers being abused.

“While I accept you are not facing offences of distribution of this material you undoubtably set up devices so other like-minded pedophiles could access your collection of child pornography,” the told Faulkner. “You basically opened your computer to like-minded pedophiles.

“You are a depraved man. You are a potential danger.”

Judge Rose noted that Faulkner had been viewing images right up to the day of his arrest and he was satisfied that he would have carried on, but for the police intervention.

The judge imposed a new indefinite sexual harm prevention order and Faulkner now have to register as a sex offender with the police for the rest of his life.
