‘Disgusting’ images on man’s PC
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.
