Canberra man in court on child pornography charges

Cameron 17 January 2008 11

The ABC is reporting that 61-year-old John Desmond Thompson has appeared in court to face charges of possessing child pornography and drugs. He was apparently arrested yesterday after the “Sexual Assault and Child Abuse Team” searched his house.

He is out on bail, apparently the conditions of which stipulate that he cannot use the internet nor be in the company of anyone under 16 years of age – this is until he returns to court in March.

Check out the full article at the ABC website.

Definetly trumped up.

Better thing would be to verbal him until he cried, video it and post it on You tube.

Jumped up little twerp.

The phrase “Trumped up” comes to mind (as does “jackbooting”, with apologies to bonfire).

The child porn charges against young Corey arose from footage of a group of teenage girls playing nude twister (according to yesterdays Crikey at least).

Sounds like they were really trying hard to pin something on the little pillock. Surely they could just hit him with disturbing the peace, affray and maliciously wearing yellow sunglasses in a public place.

The 75yo is the ex Marist teacher. This guy I’ve never heard of.

The CT today takes up a third of its front page with a pic of a seventy five year old man on sex abuse charges. Is the only interest that he is a religious? Hardly news for the front page and the space devoted to it.

The only thing I have to say about that dickhead is this: visit this website and slap some sense into him.

Anyone know or know of the person this thread is actually about?

I bet Corey posted a pic of himself on the net when he was 15…

As much as the party kid might be a tool skidbladnir, that sounds like a ridiculous charge.

Odds on he had cam-phone footage of himself (or a mate) getting lucky at the party – hardly the same thing but with the potential to seriously mess with the rest of his life.

nor be in the company of anyone under 16 years of age

I guess that rules out shopping at IGA or visiting Maccas, Hungery Jacks or Subway.

Of middling relevance, but have some office gossip courtesy of the Daily Telegraph:,22049,23063838-5001021,00.html
THE nation’s biggest brat yesterday went from hero to zero as the 16-year-old who threw a party that achieved global infamy was charged with producing child pornography.
