44-year old Kevin Mifsud from Siġġiewi was given a suspended sentence while being ordered to undergo psychotherapy after he admitted in Malta of possessing and distributing pornographic material involving minors.
Inspectors Joseph Busuttil and Paula Ciantar told the Court that the material was downloaded from pornographic sites on internet and that the minors portrayed were not Maltese.
Defence lawyers Franco Debono and Marion Camilleri said that Mifsud has a serious personal condition that needs treatment.
The prosecution confirmed that the accused expressed the need to overcome his dependency.
Magistrate Rachel Montebello sentenced him to two years in prison suspended for four years, ordered him to undergo psychotherapy and other treatment for his condition and the destruction of the pornographic material confiscated by the Police.
