Christopher Hunt, of Paige Close in Sibsey, was sentenced at Lincoln Crown Court on 14 August after taking and distributing indecent images of children and sexual activity with a child. He was sentenced to 27 months in prison.

Officers began their investigation when police were shown evidence that Hunt had recorded a sex act with a victim.

Hunt had also disclosed in an online chat to a friend that he had engaged in sexual activity with an underage girl some years ago.

Officers traced the victims and gathered evidence, resulting in a successful prosecution last week.

Thanks to the bravery of people coming forward, we were able to locate the victims of this offence and help them recover from such a horrific offence.

To know now that this individual is in jail is a great story for us and hopefully it will give the victims some form of justice.”

– Detective Sergeant Simon Todd, of Lincs Police Child Sexual Exploitation and Grooming team

Hunt was also placed on the sex offenders register for 10 years and was given a Sexual Harm Prevention Order for a period of 10 years.
