A twisted pervert who repeatedly raped his disabled son for the production of child porn has been jailed for 20-years.

The sex beast, who cannot be named to protect the identity of his victim, was identified by an international policing agency in Australasia who were investigating child porn.

Gardai tracked the man down and raided his home in March 2015, where they found over 12,000 child porn images.

5,500 of the pictures related to his disabled son who was aged six to seven years old at the time.

Graphic images of sexual assaults by adults of children, including infants as young as two-weeks-old were also discovered.

The twisted pervert pleaded guilty to two counts of rape and 10 counts of sexual assault of his son on dates between January 2014 and March 2015.

He also admitted three counts of sexual exploitation of his son, two counts of production of child pornography and a single count of possession of child porn.

Judge Tony Hunt said that the father’s breach of trust was magnified by his son’s disability, which left him unable to speak.

He said that mitigating factors, including an early guilty plea, meant that he would not impose an indeterminate life sentence, noting that this meant “overcoming the revulsion one feels… and not without some misgivings.”

Judge Hunt also said that the plea of guilty was significant as it would be an appalling prospect fo any jury to deal with the evidence in this case.
