Strathmerton Man Faces Child Pornography Charges

A Strathmerton man has faced the Shepparton magistrates court on 84 charges regarding the possession of child pornography.

Gregory Peter Vinen is already serving a six and a half year sentence, after pleading guilty to molesting a Traralgon boy across a 7 year period, beginning when the victim was eight years old.

The Shepparton News reports the new child pornography charges entered the courtroom after the occupants of Vinen's former home discovered 37 computer discs full of profane material in the roof space.

Vinen pleaded guilty in court yesterday and was sentenced to an additional 18 months in prison.
