Paedophile bodybuilder Daniel Jared Arriagada not jailed despite having baby sexually abuse pictures

A paedophile bodybuilder who had more than 2,400 child abuse pictures and videos in his possession will not be jailed. 

Daniel Jared Arriagada, 30, from Leichhardt, in Ipswich, Queensland, pleaded guilty to possessing child exploitation material which included images of toddlers in depicting sexual acts.

But rather than being jailed for the heinous material, Arriagada walked free from Ipswich District Court on Friday after being handed a 12 month Intensive Corrections Order to be served in the community. 

Judge Alexander Horeman-Wren SC said the offences Arriagada committed can carry a maximum sentence of 14 years behind bars.  

Arriagada, a former prison guard and soldier, also pleaded guilty last week to trafficking steroids into Arthur Gorrie Correctional Centre while he worked there.

Arriagada was caught with with 1,265 pictures and 1,158 videos of ‘category one’ child exploitation material at his Leichhardt home in Ipswich on December 6, 2018, according to The Daily Telegraph. 

Category one child abuse material is the worst of its kind. Arriagada’s stash showed 
babies, toddlers and pre-pubescent girls under 13 performing explicit sexual acts. 

The 2,423 pieces of multimedia were saved on two mobile phones, a laptop and two hard drives, which were all seized by police. 

Judge Horneman-Wren SC said Arriagada’s child porn stash was ‘horrific’.

‘Every child depicted is a victim. This (accessing child pornography) creates a market,’ Judge Horneman-Wren said, according to The Telegraph. 

Arriagada said his behaviour was due to a relationship breakdown but judge  Horneman-Wren said it was ‘not an explanation or an excuse to access such awful child abuse material’.

Crown Prosecutor Amanda Robinson said Arriagada should spend no less than 15 months of actual jail time. 

Defence barrister Scott Neaves proposed he serve a 12-month ICO instead, arguing if the Arriagada spent a short time in prison, he would be released without supervision.

In the end, Judge Horneman-Wren sentenced him to 12-months in jail to be served through an ICO. 

During this time, Arriagada will have two weekly visits with corrective services officers, attend counselling programs and stay at residential facilities for up to seven days when directed. 

Last week, the former prison guard received a suspended two-and-a-half year jail term for trafficking in steroids at the Supreme Court in Brisbane.

Arriagada pleaded guilty to to supplying and trafficking a steroids at Arthur Gorrie Correctional Centre, where he worked as a guard, in November and December 2018. 

He and two others sold 1,000 units of the bodybuilding drug to prisoners over a four-week period but made no profit. 

The former prison guard also promoted steroid use while working at World Gym Ipswich but was fired after being charged in December 2018. 

He was sentenced to two-and-a-half years’ jail suspended for four years.
