A sick paedophile has a chance of avoiding being jailed for hoarding ‘depraved’ child sex abuse images – because a prison does not have Wi-Fi.
Ex-army captain Phillip Dutfield has been caged twice before in 2006 because of his perverted obsession with the sick images.
The 61-year-old’s disgusting collection included the worst kind of abuse, and even featured extreme bestiality porn, a court was told.
Dutfield was expected to be jailed on Monday for breaching orders relating to his past offences, however his legal team threw a spanner in the works.
Tom Dunn, defending vile Dutfield, told a judge that his pacemaker requires Wi-Fi to ensure it is “picked up” by the NHS.

Israeli politicians have voted to continue work on a bill to allow hunger-striking Palestinian prisoners to be force-fed. Opponents argue it’s meant to silence convicts through torture similar to the force-feeding in Abu Ghraib and Guantanamo Bay.
The vote passed with a small majority Monday night at the Knesset plenum. The controversial bill, which could be soon fast-tracked into law, would allow prisons to seek official permission to force-feed a prisoner if a doctor advises there is a grave risk to the prisoner’s health.
The Israel Medical Association (IMA) has been strongly opposing the controversial bill, along with the American Medical Association, the British Medical Association, and the International Committee of the Red Cross, just to name a few.
“Force-feeding of hunger strikers is considered to be a form of torture,” the IMA says, stating that the World Medical Association’s (WMA) 1975 Tokyo Declaration prohibiting the participation of doctors in the practice of torture also prohibits doctors’ involvement in force-feeding.
The South West police officer leading the fight against cyber crime says digital technology could help keep vulnerable people safe.
Detective Chief Inspector Stuart Cavin says tracking mobile phones and online searches could protect the young or the elderly from crime.
A teenager out late on a city street could be spotted using geolocation tracking of the roaming signal on their phone and be sent a text to check they were safe.
“It’s a bit like an officer on patrol spotting a 14-year-old girl out alone at 2am and approaching her to ask, ‘are you all right?’,” said DCI Cavin.
The ‘cookie’ files that follow online behaviour could be used to see if an elderly person might be a fraud victim, he said.
But DCI Cavin said he was not proposing that the police and caring services should get involved without a wide debate first.
“Some of that (tracking) starts to feel like Big Brother,” he said, referencing the all-seeing presence of the totalitarian state in George Orwell’s novel 1984.
The technology is available. I am saying these are thoughts for the future, things we should be discussing.”
Such ideas were linked to the challenge of policing the cyber world, he said.
Liar & War Criminal Tony Blair:
Self-belief undiminished a decade on from the 7/7 London bombings, the former prime minister who led Britain to war in Iraq and Afghanistan says the UK must fight extremism militarily.
As the UK remembers the 52 dead and more than 700 wounded in the terror attacks a decade ago, Tony Blair aired his vision of how terrorism must be confronted, telling the BBC on Tuesday, “It’s a global threat, it is, I’m afraid. A growing threat.
“But we have got ourselves to a position where it’s very clear that unless we take the right policies and strategy to deal with it, we won’t be able to succeed.
“Those require a battle of ideas and a fight against the ideology. Not just the violence, but the ideology and the extremism. But also you have got to have the means of combating these people and combating them on the ground.”

Five children who made “horrific and graphic” allegations of sexual abuse told the truth, a jury has heard.
Prosecutor Angela Rafferty, QC, made her closing speech in the trial of 10 people accused of being in a paedophile ring.
Six women and four men deny multiple charges of sexual assault in a trial at Norwich Crown Court.
Sarah Elliott, speaking for defendant Marie Black, said commonsense shows the accused were not “a paedophile ring”.
Mrs Rafferty said the weeks had been an ordeal and the jury needed a “cool-eyed, cool appraisal” of the evidence.
“These defendants to a lesser or greater extent have perpetrated sexual and physical abuse on five young children,” she said.
“They all knew and they all took part.”
Mrs Rafferty said the children’s accounts did “not point in the direction of these children being liars. They are pointing in the direction of these children telling you the truth”.
