Joint operation nabbed sexual abuse image offender
A joint operation involving the Department of Internal Affairs and the Victoria Police Sexual Crimes Squad resulted in a repeat offender being jailed for three and a half years on charges involving the possession and distribution of child sexual abuse images.
Graeme Murray Purvis, 45, truck driver, of Dunedin appeared for sentence in the Dunedin District Court today on 22 charges brought by Internal Affairs and Dunedin police involving the possession, distribution and making of objectionable publications and attempted sexual grooming of a 15-year-old girl. The Department prosecuted Purvis in 2002 on similar offences, for which he was sentenced to eight months imprisonment.
