‘Dis­gust­ing’ im­ages on man’s PC

North Wales Weekly News - - NEWS -

A man who looked at bes­tial­ity on a li­brary com­puter has been jailed for seven months af­ter in­de­cent im­ages of chil­dren were dis­cov­ered on his own lap­top.

Caernar­fon crown court heard that staff at Conwy li­brary mon­i­tored re­motely a com­puter used by Jay Bolton, 28, af­ter be­ing in­formed pre­vi­ously by a mem­ber of the public that he was view­ing in­de­cent im­ages.

Pros­e­cu­tor Frances Will­mott said on the later oc­ca­sion he was search­ing for bes­tial­ity but coun­cil soft­ware wiped the ev­i­dence. Bolton was ar­rested in April last year and 97 in­de­cent im­ages of chil­dren were re­vealed af­ter his lap­top had been seized.

Bolton, of Conwy but no fixed ad­dress, ad­mit­ted pos­sess­ing and mak­ing in­de­cent child im­ages. He also pleaded guilty to hav­ing ex­treme pic­tures fea­tur­ing an an­i­mal.

Recorder Wyn Lloyd Jones told him: “I have to sen­tence you for six se­ri­ous of­fences. These came to light as a re­sult of some­body see­ing you were view­ing those dis­gust­ing im­ages on a li­brary com­puter.

The judge added: ”Real chil­dren are abused in or­der to make those im­ages.

“You have shown no re­morse what­so­ever. These of­fences have lost you a great deal.”

A sex­ual harm preven­tion or­der was made for ten years and Bolton must register as a sex of­fender for ten years.
