Young man who had sex dolls wearing children's clothes and distributed movie is jailed

Correspondent 24th Apr, 2017

A YOUNG man with a self-confessed interest in underage boys and who had sex dolls wearing children’s clothes allowed other people to access an indecent movie of a child through file-sharing software.

And when the police seized his computers and phone, they found more than 3,000 indecent images of children.

Worryingly, Lukasz Fuchs also had a number of home-made sex dolls wearing children’s clothes, Judge Andrew Lockhart QC at Warwick Crown Court heard.

Fuchs (21) of Keppel Street, Coventry, was jailed for 18 months and ordered to register as a sex offender for ten years after he admitted distributing an indecent image of a child, three charges of making indecent images and one of possessing extreme pornography.

Prosecutor Jennifer Josephs said that in October last year officers from the police on-line sexual exploitation team went to Fuchs’ home.

There were 378 images classed as being in category A, the most serious level, which showed children aged from four to 15 being subjected to penetrative sex acts. Other images fell in the less serious categories.

On the computer tower was evidence of an indecent movie having been distributed via peer-to-peer file-sharing software, said Miss Josephs.

“A number of home-made sex dolls, constructed in part out of children’s clothing, were found in his car. That is an indication of his clear interest, although there is no offence in relation to those.”

In addition, search terms used by Fuchs showed he had been deliberately searching for images of children.

When he was first interviewed, he denied the offences, but later made admissions that he had obtained images by carrying out on-line searches and by using peer-to-peer software.

Fuchs said he had an interest in young boys aged between 10 and 15, and would perform sex acts while looking at the images and taking drugs, but said he ‘would never harm a child.’

Philip Worrall, defending, said: “Clearly he is beyond the custody threshold, but I believe there are alternatives.

“This young man has realised now the gravity of what he’s been doing, and has, of his own volition, tried to address it.”

But jailing Fuchs, Judge Andrew Lockhart QC told him: “Between 2014 and 2016 you were in possession of a very large number of indecent photographs of children.

“You left one of them, at least, in a place on your computer where they were available for other people. You admitted your images were available for distribution.

“This was a failure to adjust a peer-to-peer account, rather than active distribution. But where there is distribution, there are virtually no circumstances in which a sentence can be suspended.”
