A man who was arrested in a T-shirt emblazoned with the words ‘Super Dad’ has been jailed for 12 years for sharing child abuse material. 

The 30-year-old, from Brisbane‘s Moreton Bay region, pleaded guilty to eight child abuse related offences following his arrest in April 2021.

The AFP had been tipped off by the US National Centre for Missing and Exploited Children about someone uploading child abuse material to an instant message platform called Kik.

Police were able to link the username to the man, finding abusive material on two of his phones and records of sexually explicit conversations.

At the time, children’s toys were seen strewn across his front garden, including a hula hoop and a car designed for a toddler.

During the investigation into the man, detectives also found he had been speaking to a woman in Florida who had allegedly been abusing a child.

The woman was arrested in April 2021, and the child was rescued.
