HE amassed a sick collection of 8,000 child porn photos and films.
But a Honley pensioner has been spared jail by a judge – because of health problems.
The evil antics of Laurence Williams, 76, were uncovered by police officers in Germany, investigating pornography offences.
They tipped off Huddersfield detectives who found the porn collection on Williams’ computer at the home he shared with his wife.
Many of them were classed as level four and five – the most serious type of pornographic images.
Bradford Crown Court heard that Williams had suffered a stroke shortly after pleading guilty to 21 offences of making indecent images of children.
He walked from court with a 12-month jail term, suspended for two years.
