Sheffield Crown Court heard on February 9 how Nadeem Hussain, aged 31, of Hawkshead Road, near Wincobank, Sheffield, was caught with category A, B and C images on a phone and a laptop after police raided his former family home in Sheffield.

Richard Walters, prosecuting, said police visited the property in May, 2020, while family members were present and Hussain told police he had a porn addiction and he had been looking at images but did not know the ages of those pictured.

Mr Walters added Hussain, who studied computer network engineering, was released on bail but was later found with further indecent images of categories A, B and C on another phone and laptop.

Sheffield Crown Court, pictured, heard how police raided the former family home of a Sheffield pervert who was caught with indecent images of children.

Hussain, who is of previous good character, pleaded guilty to three counts of making indecent images between May and November, 2020, relating to 122 category A images, 42 category B images and 363 category C images, with A being the most serious.

Fiona Clancy, defending, said Hussain has a realistic prospect of rehabilitation and she explained there is a link between his obsessive compulisve disorder and his “pornography-related behaviours”.

She said: “He was an individual stuck within a cycle of being obsessed with pornography.”

Ms Clancy added Hussain has lost his employment and is no longer living with his family and he has been living in a “deep cycle of shame and despair”.

Recorder Simon Eckersley told Hussain: “It’s plain to me you deliberately sought out indecent images of children for the purpose of viewing them because you derive sexual gratification from doing so and to suggest otherwise is an affront to common sense.”

But Recorder Eckersley accepted Hussain has mental health issues to consider and has shown insight into his offending and the effect it has had upon his career and family.

He sentenced Hussain to 16 months of custody suspended for two years with an accredited group work programme, a Rehabilitation Activity Requirement and 80 hours of unpaid work. Hussain was also made subject to the Sex Offenders Register and made subject to a Sexual Harm Prevention Order for ten years.
