Murray Tilbrook

They were looking for a suspected virus but when computer repair staff searched Murray Tilbrook's laptop, they found something far more sinister.

The 68-year-old was storing an explicit image library of underage girls.

Police were contacted immediately and a further search of Tilbrook's Maryborough home uncovered 2833 more damning photos and two videos depicting girls aged between 8-15.

In 2017, Tilbrook was given a suspended sentence of 12 months.

Ryan Daniel Hodge

CHILD PORN:
CHILD PORN: "Candid and frank" admissions to police helped keep high school computer technician Ryan Hodge out of jail when he was sentenced on a child pornography charge in Gympie District Court on Monday.

A Gympie region man who worked for a high school saw his career come to an end after he was sentenced for accessing child pornography online.

Ryan Daniel Hodge fronted court last year, where he was jailed with immediate parole and probation with a $1000 bond.

Analysis of Hodge's computer identified access to files involving children between 11 and 14.
