We never heard of THIS trial on TV before the May 5th Council Elections 2011 did we?
A former Lambeth councillor who admitted possessing more than 94,000 images and videos of abused children, and was looking at porn when police raided his house, has escaped jail.
Toren Smith, of Lilford Road, Camberwell, was given a two year suspended sentence at Southwark Crown Court today, after earlier pleading guilty to 24 counts of possessing and making indecent images of children.
Detectives from the paedophile unit of Metropolitan Police’s child abuse command, searched the former Tulse Hill ward Councillor’s home on May 21 last year, after inquiries revealed Smith had, on two occasions, paid to download material which included a number of Level 5 images and footage – the most serious kind.
A Met Police spokesman said: “During a search of the property officers seized a laptop computer and a USB stick [used to store computer data] and at the time of the search Smith was logged onto to a site which was displaying pornographic material.”
Further examination of Smith’s computer and USB stick revealed 777 movies – 11 of which were Level 5 – and 93,549 still images, police said.
Smith, who was a respected senior Labour member of the council who had been an elected member for 16 years and was co-chair of the council’s planning committee, resigned from the council three days later “for personal reasons”.
He was sentenced to 3 months imprisonment for the Level 1 – 3 images; 6 months for the Level 4 images; and 12 months for the Level 5 images – all to run concurrently. His sentences were suspended for 24 months.
In addition, he was made subject to Sex Offender Prevention Order for five years, and placed on the Sex Offender Register for a minimum of five years. He was also ordered to pay £1,000 costs.
After today’s sentencing, Detective Inspector Noel McHugh, of The Met’s paedophile unit said: “We are totally committed to identifying and prosecuting anyone who possesses or trades indecent images of children. Each image or movie represents a child who has been abused and we will continue to work tirelessly to bring anyone who is in anyway involved in the abuse of children to justice.”
It is believed Smith had a clean record when an advanced Criminal Records Bureau check was carried out on him as part of a council protocol introduced in light of the Baby P scandal in 2009.

Express and Star Newspaper article.
 
A disgraced former Walsall councillor who left a computer memory stick containing child porn behind after a town hall meeting was today fined £443.
Jonathan Phillips was placed on the sex offenders register for two years.
The discovery was made after a council worker found the equipment belonging to Phillips in a meeting room at the Lichfield Street site.
After loading the stick into the computer, they discovered the indecent images and was able to link the computer to Phillips.
At Walsall Magistrates Court today the 53-year-old admitted two offences of making an indecent photo or pseudo-photo of a child.
Phillips, of Eastbourne Street, Walsall, resigned from his position as a Labour councillor for the Birchills and Leamore ward after he was arrested by police last October. He was suspended from his work at Wolverhampton City Council.
Miss Siobhan Wilkins, prosecuting, said Phillips received texts on his mobile phone but had accessed them by downloading from a website which he then copied onto a USB stick. This stick was found in September last year.
Mr Mahmood Hussain, defending, said: “My client has never had any court record. This is totally out of character. When the police searched his home they found nothing untoward.
“The charges relate to two images found on a computer memory stick given to him by someone else.
“He looked at them and when he realised what they were he was going to report them to the police himself.”
Along with the fine he was ordered to pay costs of £60 and a £15 victim surcharge.
Phillips represented the old Hatherton and Rushall ward from 1995-99 and was then re-elected to serve Birchills and Leamore from 2006 before his resignation.
