Police raided Tivadar Orszag’s home in Nessus Street, Buckland, in August last year after being tipped off by an internet provider.

Officers found the 50-year-old had been using peer-to-peer software to download indecent movies of children.

Daniel Sawyer, prosecuting at Portsmouth Crown Court, said one video involved a one-year-old and older children.

Orszag pleaded guilty to three counts of making indecent images of children, relating to 11 video files.

Howard Barrington-Clark, defending, conceded it was a ‘disgusting’ and ‘serious’ case but added the defendant had no previous convictions.

Sentencing, judge Roger Hetherington said it would be safer for the public if Orszag was rehabilitated.

The judge gave him an eight-month sentence suspended for two years with a 40-day rehabilitation requirement.

Orszag must sign the sex offenders’ register for 10 years. A sexual harm prevention order was imposed.
