Child Porn: Longest sentence in SA for ex-cop

2012-11-29 00:00

WELKOM — The longest sentence ever imposed for the possession of child pornography in South Africa saw a former policeman get a 45- year term yesterday.

Most of the trial was conducted behind closed doors. Shocking photographs of naked children performing sex acts formed part of the evidence. Prosecutor Charmaine Labuschagne said it is a great relief that the trial is over. “It was very traumatic. I was physically sick every day I worked on this case. I lived this case for more than a year.”
