Judge Martin Nolan has given a three-and-a-half year suspended sentence to former civil servant Patrick Corcoran, 53, after he was caught with over 7,000 images and 21 videos of child pornography.

Breakingnews.ie reports:

“Staff at the then Department of Arts, Sport and Tourism discovered attempts to download inappropriate material on Patrick Corcoran’s (53) computer during a software upgrade at the Kildare Street offices in December 2009. Members of the National Bureau of Criminal Investigation (NBCI) seized a laptop and computer at Corcoran’s desk and later found 5,951 pornographic images of children between eight and 14 years old during a search of his former North Circular Road home.”

You are getting a chance, but if you re-offend, no mercy will be shown,” said Judge Nolan.”
