Port Elizabeth man Jayde Sheldon Bailey, who distributed child pornography, was sentenced to an effective five years in prison in the Port Elizabeth Regional Court on Thursday morning.

In handing down the sentence, Magistrate Johan Herselman said he had to overcome certain battles within himself after he, too, had to view the graphic images, some of children so young, their umbilical cords were still attached.

Bailey, 35, was arrested in March 2015 after police uncovered two hard drives containing 560 sexually explicit images and 401 videos containing child pornography at Bailey’s Westering family home.

His attorney, Paul Roelofse, will bring an application for leave to appeal the sentence.

    5 years?!?!? This judge is a fucking joke! The people who peddle in child pornography create a market and are just as guilty as if they were there abusing the child themselves.

    This judge is surely not a father or a grandfather!? How does the law allow a menial sentence for the profound and immeasurable damage this pervert’s actions has caused and may cause to innocent children for generations to come? Is this justice?
