Child porn producer fined in Murgon Court

A GOOMERI man convicted of producing child exploitation material faced Murgon Magistrates Court after police learned he had an unregistered email account.

Police prosecutor Pepe Gangemi told the court Alastair Wayne Anning was required to report any email and social media accounts he used along with their passwords.

"Checks showed the defendant's social media had an email address that had existed for over a year and had not been reported in that time,” Sgt Gangemi said.

Anning's lawyer said the email account had been active from before her client was jailed in 2017 and he had forgotten it existed.

The 22-year-old man wasjailed for a month in 2017 for possessing more than 10,000 child exploitation images.

He also blackmailed a 15-year-old girl into sending him sexualised images of herself, which he posted online along with details of her address.

Magistrate Louisa Pink said the seriousness of Anning's crime meant he must follow his parole conditions carefully.

"You are on a federal good behaviour bond,” she said.

"Read it, re-read and re-read it and ensure that you comply with it.”

Ms Pink said a second similar offence would see Anning returned to jail.

"Consider yourself forewarned,” Ms Pink said.

After pleading guilty on June 19 to failing to comply with reporting conditions, Anning was fined $700.

His conviction was recorded.
