Provan avoids jail over porn possession
A Melbourne psychologist convicted of possessing child pornography on Thursday avoided a jail term.
James Anton Provan, 38, last week pleaded guilty in Heidelberg Magistrates Court to one count of possessing child pornography.
The charge was laid after police found 114 sexually-explicit photos of boys under 18 on his computer hard-drive.
Magistrate Jillian Crowe on Thursday placed Provan on a two-year community-based order and ordered him to continue treatment with a psychiatrist.
He will also be placed on the serious sexual offenders register for eight years.
Ms Crowe said because Provan sought treatment for his offending prior to detection and pleaded guilty she did not feel it was necessary to jail him.
"Clearly you had embarked on efforts to curtail your activities and indeed your fantasies and for that you are to be commended," she said.
The court was told police seized a computer containing the images, notes detailing Provan's sexual attraction to children and an article
titled `The Mind of a Paedophile' when they searched his home in Kemp Street, Thornbury, on September 27 this year.
Provan's lawyer Steven Pica told the court his client felt guilt and self loathing over his crime and had sought psychiatric help to
address his problem before he was detected.
He said Provan's life had been turned upside down, he had brought shame to his family, lost his job and his image has been posted on
national television over his offending.
Provan is one of at least 191 people charged or facing charges around Australia as part of operation Auxin, a joint crackdown by
state and federal police on internet child pornography.
