Paedophile brothers had no idea they were both sexually attracted to children

Paedophile siblings had no idea they were both sexually attracted to children until police raided the home they shared

  • Police raided the Gladstone  home of Blake and Nathan Parry in Queensland 
  • Blake shared a file with over 200 child pornography images with a covert officer 
  • While searching the home, police also interviewed Blake’s older brother 
  •  They searched Nathan’s devices and found more sickening child pornography  

Two brothers had no idea they were both paedophiles until police raided their home, a court has heard. 

Nathan William Parry, 23, and Blake Norman Parry, 19, lived together at a property in Gladstone, in Queensland in 2018.

Both brothers had been seriously bullied at school but were now in steady relationships.

Blake was a young father and had a steady job in the fast food industry and Nathan worked in a hardware store, The Gladstone Observer reported. 

But unknown to each other, they both harboured a vile predilection for viewing sickening child pornography.

Blake had a particularly disturbing preference for little girls aged under 12. 

The brothers were only caught after an undercover officer approached Blake on a Russian image-sharing website.   

Police raided the Gladstone home in Queensland after Blake Parry (pictured), a 19-year-old  father and fast-food worker, shared a ‘starter’ link with a covert police officer which contained 212 child exploitation images

But when police raided the brothers’ home on August 23, 2018, they also found Nathan had been viewing child porn.

They seized mobile phones and a laptop from both men and found that the older sibling had been using Tumblr to view child porn for several months.

He had 198 images stored on his devices and had viewed child pornography that same morning.  

After he was interviewed by police, Blake said he was fascinated by the material. 

He was charged with one count of distributing child pornography and one count of possessing child pornography. 

When police interviewed Nathan, he said he ‘got a rush from viewing something he should not have been viewing.’ 

Nathan was charged with one count of possessing child pornography and using a carriage service to access child pornography material. 

Blake pleaded guilty to one count of distributing child exploitation material and one count possessing child exploitation material in the District Court in Gladstone on Friday.

Nathan also pleaded guilty to one count of possessing child exploitation material and using a carriage service to access child pornography material. 

Defence barrister Tom Polley, who represented the brothers, said both men had ‘subnormal’ intellectual capabilities.

He added that Blake suffered mental health issues and Nathan had autism.

Judge Vicki Loury said both men had brought ‘shame’ and ‘grief’ to their families and chastised them for fuelling an ‘evil  industry’ that ‘depraved’ children. 

Blake was sentenced to two years in jail wholly suspended for two years. 

He was ordered by the judge to complete two years’ probation. 

Nathan was sentenced to 18 months jail with immediate release on good behaviour and 12 months jail wholly suspended for two years for both of his charges. 

He is required to participate in a sex offenders program. 

Both of the brothers had their child pornography convictions recorded.
