A man from Sunnmøre in Norway is sentenced to 215 hours of community service after having stored 281,554 photographs and 70 films showing sexual abuse of children.
According to Sunnmørsposten, the man confessed in police interview in December 2013, but the police's slow investigation of the case gave the man a penalty reduction.
The material showing abuses was downloaded over a period from 1999 and parts of it showed severe sexual offenses against very young children.
Prosecutor Cathrin Remøy asked for imprisonment for one year and four months, however, because of special circumstances surrounding the man's mental health, according to the court, the court found it prudent to react with community service.
- In summary, it is a serious breach of the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR) that the processing time has been unnecessarily prolonged by more than two years, which should lead to a "significant reduction of sentence," concluded the Judge, Kjetil Gjøen.
The man has accepted the sentence, which fell in Sunnmøre District Court.
