A Lotto winner has been jailed for a decade after abusing teenage girls and making child porn.

Matthew James Campbell, 35, pleaded guilty to rape, two counts of indecent assault, grossly indecent behaviour and possessing and producing child exploitation material, The Advertiser reported.

He bought the girls 10 cans of Smirnoff took them to a secluded area of the park, where he kissed both of them without their consent.

When the 16-year-old left the area, he forced the 17-year-old to perform a sex act on him, despite her trying to push him away.

The younger girl twice came back, but Campbell carried on abusing the older girl once her friend left again.

Campbell was arrested in January last year. When police searched his phone, they found dozens of pictures of children being abused. Some were under the age of 14.

Four of child porn images had been created by Campbell himself.

A psychological report showed Campbell had a ‘paedophilic disorder’.

“Your offending was predatory and brazen,” Judge Karen Thomas said.

Campbell was jailed for 10 years, one month and 19 days. He will be eligible for parole in 2028.

The amount of money Campbell won on the lottery was not disclosed.
