Family

The accused man’s brother John took to the witness stand and said the investigation had ripped his family apart but that Griffin was still his brother.

“None of us would attempt to condone this in any way,” he said, adding that he had broken the family trust.

He added that if his brother went to prison his elderly mother, whom Griffin was now a carer for, would have to go into a care home.

“If she has to go into a home I don’t think she’ll survive very long,” he added.

The accused man was asked to take the stand and he apologised to his victims and to his family for all he had put them through.

He said he could have easily clicked past to the next screen when young boys appeared on the chat room but he chose not to.

A number of reports were handed into court by Griffin’s legal team for Judge John Aylmer to consider before sentencing.

His barrister Ciaran O’Rourke said there was no question that the material seized was every distributed to other people or that Griffin had profited from the material.

Bail

Judge Aylmer released the accused on his own bail for sentence in March so he could consider today’s sentence.

Judge Aylmer went through each of a large number of offences committed by Griffin.

These included six charges of producing child pornography for which he said the term of imprisonment was six years on each charge.

However, he said he placed Griffin’s offences in the mid-range and said these charges merited a term of four years.

He further sentenced Griffin for charges of possession of child pornography for 18 months but was reduced to 12 months.

Judge Aylmer said there were a number of mitigating factors in Griffin’s favour and these included his early guilty plea and the fact that there was no evidence of profiteering or distribution form the videos he made.

He said it was also clear that Griffin had been a hard-working man who had an issue with alcohol and was in need of help with his mental health.

He also noted he had been a carer for his late father and was still a carer for his mother and that his time in custody would be another unfortunate consequence of his crimes.

He said he would also suspend the last 12 months of the four-year jail sentence on the agreement that Griffin agreed to comply with the probation services and other authorities for two years from when he was released from jail.
