Poole man made to sign sex register

A SHAMED Poole man has been ordered to sign on the sex offenders’ register for five years after admitting child pornography offences.

Ross Pacifico, 52, from Whatleigh Close, admitted making 35 indecent images on his partner’s home computer, featuring girls as young as eight.

Prosecuting at the Bournemouth Crown Court, Kerry Maylin said Pacifio had been using the computer when police swooped at an address in Poole on December 7, 2010.

Officers also seized computer equipment at his home.

Following his arrest, Pacifico replied that the equipment contained photographs of “young models”, adding: “The prettiest part is their eyes.”

In his defence, the court heard that he had never been in trouble before and suffered from learning difficulties.

Judge Samuel Wiggs imposed a community order, with a 12-month supervision requirement.
