Limassol: 7.5 years jail for child porn, sexual harassment of children

Limassol Criminal Court on Wednesday sentenced a 42 year old man to seven and a half years in jail for possessing, acquiring and producing child porn and for sexually harassing children.

The 42 year old was arrested on October 14 last year in what the Cyprus News Agency said was an unprecedented case for the cyber crime unit.

The news agency said that the defendant was a private tutor and had videotaped underage boys who were his pupils in the nude.

During the trial, he pleaded guilty to a total of 22 charges, it added.

Police had found in his possession videos and photographs of several young boys and had at the time said that this was the first case in Cyprus involving the  production rather just possession of child pornography.
