Teacher's 58,000 child porn images

A ROCKHAMPTON man who had 58,000 child porn images,  including some of very young boys, had a good reputation as a teacher of 20 years, a court heard yesterday.

Peter Francis Millan, 40, now unemployed, pleaded guilty in Rockhampton Magistrates Court to charges including 76 counts of possessing objection- able child abuse computer games and 74 of making them.

Millan's home was raided in September after Rockhampton's Juvenile Aid Bureau was in- formed that a technician repair- ing one of his computers had found the images.

Police prosecutor Constable Darrell Dalton told the court po- lice had seized a laptop and a personal computer from Mil- lan's home, as well as 76 discs, all of which contained child porn images.

"He (Millan) stated he had been downloading (images) since the Internet came in,'' Constable Dalton said.

"Some depicted very young boys, some displayed the defen- dant in the nude.''

Millan's solicitor, Jeff Clarke, said his client, who was genu- inely remorseful, had "previ- ously enjoyed a solid reputation as a teacher for 20 years''.

He had not worked in a class- room setting for seven years but had recently been a librarian.

"He has lost his career, he has lost his standing within the community ... and (suffered) public humiliation,'' Mr Clarke said.

Magistrate Annette Hennessy adjourned the matter until a pre-sentence report was prepared.

Millan's bail was enlarged and he was remanded to Novem-ber 17.
