Child Sex OffendersA South Australian computer technician who downloaded child pornography and frequented internet chatrooms in order to fulfil his impaired sexual fantasies about toddlers has been jailed for 3 years. 38 year old Steven John Bolbot, pleaded guilty to an aggravated count of possessing child pornography as well as two counts of producing child pornography.

The Adelaide District Court heard that South Australia Police officers searched Bolbot’s home in February 2012, during the search they found Bolbot using an internet chatroom, they also discovered 2,280 chat logs – of Bolbot role-playing – and found 246 images of child pornography on hard drives in his possession.

The court heard Bolbot’s social isolation and internet addiction led him to use chatrooms to explore his sexual fantasies about young children. It heard Bolbot was employed as a computer technician in 2009, He was however sacked as a result of the criminal charges.

According to the authors, pathologic personality traits in paedophiles lend support to a hypothesis that such pathology is related to both motivation for and failure to inhibit paedophilia behaviour.
