Man jailed over child porn
A 38-year-old man has been jailed for ten months after police acting on a tip-off found hundreds of child porn images and films on his computer.
Bradford Crown Court heard how officers went to Ian Nash’s home in Dewsbury Road, Elland, in October last year after receiving information he was using the internet to download images of children.
Prosecutor Paul Nicholson said more than 300 child porn images and 23 films were found on Nash’s computer.
He had pleaded guilty to possessing the indecent images at a previous hearing before Calderdale Magistrates and it emerged that in 2009 he had been convicted of sexual offences against young boys.
Judge Jonathan Rose sentenced Nash to ten months in prison for the latest offences and told him he would have to register as a sex offender with the police for ten years.
