Craig Magee was on Wednesday jailed for 22-months after pleading guilty in the Brisbane District Court to 38 charges - including using the internet to download child porn, possessing it or making it available to other users over an eight month period.
Judge Milton Griffin, SC, in sentencing, told Magee it was likely and right that Magee would by humiliated and shamed by his actions, "which is simply a function of this disgusting behaviour."

News ()- "'Horror' rapist has life sentence reduced" A Queensland man convicted of inflicting "unimaginable horrors" on a 13-year-old girl has had his life sentence reduced on appeal.
Judge Howie said Macfie welcomed new girls with hugs, kisses and packages of goods, and persuaded two girls to stay overnight in his home.
The court heard the six-week ordeal ended on May 18 last year when a school principal contacted police after making enquiries about the girls absences.
Commonwealth prosecutor David Kent revealed the 56-year-old grandfather was found in possession of 2731 images or videos of child pornography on his personal computer - along with a further 155,487 films or pictures of explicit adult porn.
Mr Kent said Magee, then aged 54, used his computer to download child pornography on 36 occasions and once to make it available using the "Limewire" peer-to-peer file sharing program between January and September 2009.
A number of victims and their parents attended the sentencing, with one man shouting rot in hell you arsehole as Macfie was escorted out of the courtroom.
The rest sat facing forwards, choosing not to take one last look at the man who devastated their lives.
Judge Howie said Macfie had told the girls about becoming princesses and warned them not to tell anyone about his crimes because they were being followed.
Macfie warned one girl she would be killed if she told the police.
