Self-confessed child porn addict, William Beale, is set to be sentenced in the Thembalethu Regional Court at George in the Southern Cape on Tuesday.

He pleaded guilty to around 19 000 charges of the possession of child pornography earlier this year.

Thirty-nine-year-old Beale was arrested in January 2015 in Plettenberg Bay as part of an international crackdown by Interpol.

He was linked to a child pornography ring after sharing disturbing images of children on the internet.
