Man jailed for possession of child porn has term extended after more images found

A MAN SERVING a sentence for possession of child pornography has had his term extended by 18 months after further images and videos recovered in the investigation were analysed.

James Clarke (62) received a ten years imprisonment with the final two years suspended in 2013 after admitting possession and distribution of child pornography. He was due for release in January.

Dublin Circuit Criminal Court heard the material in the 2013 sentencing hearing was considered so serious that it had been “fast tracked” through analysis at the Garda Cyber Crime Bureau.

The material in today’s case was also retrieved during the garda investigation into Clarke but analysis of it was delayed for a number of years because of a “backlog” at the unit.

Clarke, formerly of Devlis Cottage, Ballyhaunis, Mayo, pleaded guilty to possession of 785 images of child pornography on devices at his address in Mayo in January 2012 and 1009 images and three

At a previous hearing a prosecution barrister had told the court that Kennedy had used the dark web to try and buy a gun from two undercover police officers.

The court was told Kennedy had made contact with a man on the dark web called ‘Ally’ who he believed could provide him with a firearm “but who was in fact an undercover police operative”.

Kennedy later met one of the undercover officers at Annadale Embankment to buy the firearm in

Perth College records drop in cyber bullying after mobile phone ban

PERTH College is hailing its break-time ban on mobile phones a success after noting a dip in cyber bullying and surge in meaningful interaction.

Principal Jenny Ethell said the decision to bar students from using mobile phones during recess and lunch breaks was initially met with some resistance but that girls at the school had adjusted quickly.

“Some of the students initially were afraid of missing out on what was happening on social media but because everyone is in the same boat I think that has actually given way to feelings of relief,” Mrs Ethell said. “It mean the girls now use break times to develop authentic relationships rather than just communicating through their mobiles.
