THE first Australian convicted of "internet trolling" by plastering child pornography on the Facebook tribute pages of two slain Queensland schoolchildren is seeking bail pending an appeal against his three-year jail term.
Lawyers for Bradley Paul Hampson, 29, this morning told The Courier-Mail an application had been lodged by their client for Supreme Court bail pending an appeal against his sentence.
Last month Hampson fronted the the Brisbane District Court for posting offensive messages and photos on Facebook "RIP tribute" pages for a 12-year-old boy stabbed at a Brisbane school and a nine-year-old Bundaberg girl abducted and murdered in February last year.
Hampson, of Tarragindi, on Brisbane's southside, pleaded guilty to two counts of using a carriage service, the internet, to cause offence and one each of distributing and possessing child exploitation material - meaning child pornography - between February 14 and June 4 last year.
