Aussie man convicted for Simpsons smut

What's that Skippy? Lisa's doing what?

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

A second Australian man has been convicted for possessing computer images of cartoon characters in explicit poses.

Kurt James Milner, 28, pleaded guilty to charges of possessing child exploitation material and using a carriage service to access child exploitation material. He was sentenced to 12 months in prison, suspended for five years and must pay a $1,000 good behaviour bond. He was also put on the sex offenders register.

The images included characters from The Simpsons, The Powerpuff Girls and The Incredibles. Police searched Milner's house after a tip-off, according to the Queensland Times.

The judge said the sentence was so harsh because it was Milner's second offence.

Nor is Milner the first Antipodean to be convicted for having drawings which were considered child sex abuse images.

In 2008 the Supreme Court of New South Wales upheld the conviction on child pornography charges for a man caught with images of Lisa and Bart Simpson.

We can only hope Australian police don't ever see the logo for the London Olympics or someone is going to be in really big trouble. ®
