David Shaw and Son Robert Shaw Plead Guilty to downloaded hundreds of child porn images on their home computers, son walks free out of court 17th June

Evil David Shaw only received 26 weeks which seeing it's and English Jail, he will prbably be out in 13 weeks.

A pervert father and his depraved son who downloaded child pornography have been jailed after their catalogue of hundreds of images was discovered.

Among the horrific images stored on computers at their home in Burnley, Lancashire, disabled David Shaw and his son, Robert, were pictures of an 18-month-old baby being sexually abused, toddlers being violated and bestiality.

The 59-year-old father was jailed for 26 weeks while his reclusive son, 25, who rarely left his bedroom, was handed a two-year community order and told to seek treatment.

Shaw's daughter, Kathryn, 31, hit out at their punishment saying it had been too lenient.

'I only found out because he was up in Scotland with me, as he came there to hide. As soon as I found out, I kicked him out.'

Both PCs and at least one other hard drive were sent for analysis along with a dozen DVDs and CDs.

Seven of the discs were found to contain either indecent images of children or extreme pornography and some of the child images were classed as level four out of five. They included children as young as two or three being abused.

The computer that Shaw jnr was using at the time was found to have no indecent images on it, but there were some on a hard drive found in his room. The court heard that he had downloaded images of teenagers about five years ago.

Shaw jnr pleaded guilty to seven allegations of making an indecent image of a child and was also put on the sex offenders' register for five years.
