A Krugersdorp man accused of creating and distributing p0rnogr0phy featuring his own minor child and the children of relatives is due to be sentenced on Tuesday.
His sentence will be handed down at the high court sitting in Palm Ridge.
The National Prosecuting Authority said the suspect had pleaded guilty to a string of charges which included unlawful possession of child p0rn0graphy, unlawful creation of child p0rn0graphy, unlawful importing or procuring of child p0rn0graphy, unlawful distribution of child p0rn0graphy, using a child for child p0rn0graphy, benefiting from child p0rn0graphy and s.e.xual exploitation of a child.
The 40-year-old was arrested in August 2019 after an investigation by the FBI which alerted SA police to the crimes.
His arrest led to the arrest of one other person.
HeraldLIVE reported last week that Kerwin David Budden, a Port Elizabeth man linked to the Krugersdorp suspect, was convicted of possession and distribution of child p0rn0graphy.
In a separate trial, Budden pleaded guilty to the charges.
The Krugersdorp suspect had allegedly confessed to Budden’s involvement in the p0rn0graphy distribution and when police searched Budden’s residence, they found several child p0rn0graphic images on his cellphone and laptop.
