He was jailed for three years after pleading guilty to distributing and possessing indecent images.

“Police across the country are committed to identifying and prosecuting people who make, distribute and possess indecent images of children.

"Their abhorrent fascination leads to the exploitation of young and vulnerable children.

"I hope this successful conviction serves as a warning to other offenders that they can and will be identified and face justice for their crimes.”
