Ex-Govt employee faces jail over child porn

A former Federal Government employee is facing a maximum 14-year prison term for using his daughter's 12-year-old friend to make child pornography.

The 41-year-old man was employed by the Federal Department of Employment and Workplace Relations when he used his work laptop to look at and save child pornography images with names like "Lolita" and "pre-teen girls".

He was caught when a colleague used the laptop, discovered the pictures and told his boss.

The Northern Territory Supreme Court heard the police searched the senior public servant's house in Parap and found another 1,500 images on his home computer, including 18 photos of his daughter's 12-year-old friend, taken when she had stayed at his house.

Four of them showed her topless, others showed her in provocative poses, but none showed total nudity.

The man has pleaded guilty to 16 offences, including indecently dealing with the 12-year-old.

The case is continuing.
