Crime News: Krugersdorp man who used his own child to make pornography to be sentenced.

A Krugersdorp man accused of creating and distributing pornography featuring his own minor child and the children of relatives is due to be sentenced on Tuesday, TimesLive reported.

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 pornography
  • unlawful creation of child pornography
  • unlawful importing or procuring of child pornography
  • unlawful distribution of child pornography
  • using a child for child pornography
  • benefiting from child pornography
  • sexual 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.

The Krugersdorp suspect had allegedly confessed to Kerwin David Budden’s
involvement in the pornography distribution and when police searched Budden’s residence, they found several child pornographic images on his cellphone and laptop.

Kerwin David Budden,

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 pornography.

Police obtained a search warrant and in collaboration with America’s Homeland Security found several child pornographic images in the cellphone and laptop of Budden.

In his plea, Budden admitted to sharing child pornography on social media platforms.

In a separate trial, Budden pleaded guilty to the charges.
