A Suffolk man who downloaded more than 60,000 indecent images and videos of children has been given a suspended prison sentence.
Police officers went to Jeremy Durrant’s home in May last year and seized four devices which were subsequently analysed by an expert, Ipswich Crown Court heard today.
Durrant, 28, of Withersfield Road, Haverhill, admitted making 1,624 images and 185 videos in the most serious A category, 2,072 images and 125 videos in category B, and 56,499 images and 149 videos in category C on or before May 18, 2017.
He also admitted distributing 24 indecent images of children.
He was given a two year prison sentence suspended for two years and ordered to do 200 hours unpaid work. He was also given a 25 day rehabilitation requirement and ordered to take part in an probation service accredited programme.
He was also ordered to pay £600 costs and made the subject of a sexual harm prevention order and ordered to sign the sex offenders’ register for ten years.
Catherine Bradshaw, for Durrant, who has no previous convictions, said he was remorseful and recognised he needed help.
