A GLANAMMAN man was found to have downloaded a "sickening" collection of child sex images, a judge heard today.

Christopher Wyn Davies, aged 54, had kept a film of a young girl being raped.

And he had images of a sexual assault on a baby.

Davies, of Rhodfa Brynrhos, Glanamman, admitted possessing indecent images of children in all categories A, B and C.

Dean Pulling, prosecuting, said officers of Dyfed Powys police's online investigation team raided his home and took away a laptop computer.

Experts discovered he had invested in a programme that promised to wipe away any downloaded files and Davies had run the programme 106 times.

However, experts were still able to find two images and two films in category A, 11 in B and 31 in C.

Davies had also had a programme that allowed him to communicate with like minded people that revealed "highly sexualised conversations."

Mr Pulling said it was suspected that Davies had shared images with other men but that could not be proved.

Mr Pulling said in addition to the assault on the baby other victims appeared to be aged as young as four.

He said the film involving the nine year old was of an actual rape.

Tom Scapens, the barrister representing Davies, said he realised he needed help.

He said his wife and daughter were standing by him but they were appalled at what he had been doing.

Judge Paul Thomas said he wanted people to understand that these crime were not victimless.

"These are not just images. They represent children, in some cases babies, actually being assaulted.

"It happens for one reason, and one reason alone, so that people like you can get a sick thrill from looking at them."

Judge Thomas said the victims suffered massive psychological consequences.

Davies was jailed for 10 months, suspended for two years, and ordered to complete 40 days of a rehabilitation activity.

He was also made the subject of a sexual harm prevention order restricting his access to children for 10 years and told to register with the police as a sex offender, also for 10 years.

Judge Thomas warned Davies that if came back before the court for possessing a single indecent image he would go straight jail
