Last night, 60 minutes shared the story of a brave woman who reported her own husband for possessing child abuse material.
Take a minute to process that and put yourself in her shoes.
Leah Mouatt says when she noticed a change in her husband’s behaviour, she began to suspect he was having an affair with another woman. She describes the initial part of their six-year marriage as being ‘happy’ but says that in the latter stages, he became distant.
Fearing the worst, she waited until he was out one night, and went snooping. Having met her husband online, she first trawled internet dating sites for confirmation that he was engaging with other women. She used his login information (which she knew from his interest in car forums) to search for any sign that he was being unfaithful.
What she found, though, was much more sinister.
Hidden in secret folders on his computer was a collection of photos of pre-pubescent girls - including some of a family friend - alongside disturbing graphic sexual comments indicating his interest in children.
“I knew quite quickly after I saw what I saw that the police had to be called” she told 60 Minutes. Together with the support of a friend, she made the difficult decision to approach the authorities.
