A man's been jailed for three years after more than 70 indecent images and videos of children were found on his computer.

Officers made the discovery while searching Michael Rosenthal's address in Ford Lane, Roxton.

In 2007, the 66-year-old was convicted of viewing indecent images and given a Sexual Harm Prevention Order.

That order was breached with the latest discovery, resulting in a three-year jail term for Rosenthal.

Nikki Penniston-Kordek, Investigation Officer from the Offender Management Unit, said: “I am glad that Rosenthal will now spend time in prison after he breached the conditions of his court order and continued to access and share incident images and videos of children.

“He has a clear understanding of his actions, but by continuing to re-offend, has shown a total disregard for his previous conviction, and that is something we will never tolerate in this county.

“The viewing and sharing of indecent images of children causes real harm to real children, and it is vital we investigate such crimes thoroughly, and bring perpetrators, such as Rosenthal to justice.”
