A Fife man has been sentenced for downloading indecent images of child sex abuse.
Pawel Wozniak, 31, of Shaw Street, Dunfermline, admitted that between September 6 2014 and February 19 2015 he downloaded indecent photographs of children.
Sheriff Charles MacNair told Wozniak: “Although the number found were small you had been deleting images as you went and it involved images at the most serious level.”
The sheriff said the image category system descriptions were “anodyne and can mask the true horror” of offences.
He added: “When the Crown talk about images and videos at category A, of which you had five videos, this is film of the rape of children.”
Wozniak was sentenced to a community payback order with three years’ supervision and 210 hours of unpaid work.
He will also be on a sexual offences protection order and the sex offenders register for five years.
