Sick paedo with “worst child sex videos analysts had seen” is jailed


A Dunfermline man, found to have some of the worst child sex videos that police analysts had ever seen, has been jailed.

There were hundreds of depraved images and videos which included sex with young children and infants.

Lee O’Malley (33), of Townhill Road, appeared for sentencing at Dunfermline Sheriff Court.

He admitted that between 5th and 19th December last year at his home he was in possession of indecent images of children.

O’Malley admitted to police he had watched a two-hour video of young children being sexually abused.

Depute fiscal Alex Kirk told the court that police, acting on intelligence received, sought a warrant and this was executed at O’Malley’s home on 19th December.

His mobile phone was seized and was later found to contain indecent images.

He claimed he had “seen images but not collected them”.

However, his phone contained 373 indecent images, 40 of these in the ‘A’ category, the classification for the most disgusting type.

He had five videos, four of the A category. These involved one of a child aged 12-15 months old, with mask over its face and an adult urinating on the baby.

There were also a video showing sexual activity with a young child who was “obviously in distress”, added the depute.

O’Malley admitted to police that he took part in on-line chat sites where there were videos and photos posted of extreme sexual acts with children, including infants.

The depute said, “I understand that these were some of worst videos that these analysts have ever seen.”

He also took part in “sexualised chats about children on Skype”.

Asked if he was interested in sex with children, O’Malley said he was but only “in fantasies not real life”.

Defence solicitor Stephen Morrison said, “It’s accepted by him some of this material is of a particularly serious nature.”

He added that his client had mortgaged property which would be “in peril” if he was jailed.

O’Malley had worked in debt management and customer services but had to give up his job because of this case.

Sheriff Charles MacNair said, “When the Crown rather blandly refers to category ‘A’, what it means is you are watching the rape of children and one of the videos described in the report is quite horrific.”

He jailed O’Malley for 13 months and placed him on the sex offenders’ register.
