Judge Jason Taylor QC lets paedophile found with over million indecent images and videos depicting child rape walk free.

Pervert Darren Brazier leaving court.

Darren Brazier was caught with more than a million indecent images and videos depicting child rape. This is the third time he has appeared in court, but Judge Jason Taylor has let him walk free.

The pervert was given a suspended sentence in 2010 after he was found with over 100,000 images and videos of child abuse. But within just five months Brazier, of Swindon, Wiltshire, was downloading thousands of indecent pictures on his devices again.

Seven years later police found he had collected more than a million new images but a judge at Swindon Crown Court has decided to give Brazier another chance.

Judge Jason Taylor QC believed Brazier seemed ‘genuinely remorseful’ after seeing a counsellor for the last 17 months, since he was arrested.

He was given another suspended jail term after pleading guilty to making indecent images of children and having prohibited images.

Tessa Hingston, prosecuting, told the court how police found the material after making an unannounced visit to his home in November 2017 and asked to see his computer.

They discovered he had been looking for child abuse images and videos due to search terms he had used, such as ‘preteen’ and ‘daddy daughter’.

Police seized two laptops, two tablets, a mobile and a computer tower which when searched were found to contain more than a million pictures and movies.

When he was questioned he said he had slipped back into his old habits despite having strong support in place from his family, while Lucie Stoker, defending, said he had been depressed at the time.

Judge Taylor said: ‘These offences began just five months after that sentence was imposed and despite the specialist help you were getting for that order.

‘I accept you are genuinely remorseful. You have taken steps to address your offending behaviour.

I have seen a letter from your therapist which encourages me.

‘I am encouraged that the last download was in June 2017, that was several months before your arrest in November 2017.’

The judge imposed a 22-month jail term suspended for two years and told him to complete the Horizon sexual offenders’ programme.

He was also given a sexual harm prevention order for 10 years and registered as a sex offender.
