A WARWICK man has escaped a jail sentence after pleading guilty to making indecent images of children.
Andre Davis, aged 61, of Reignier Place, Heathcote, was sentenced today (Friday) at Warwick Crown Court to a three-year community order and a three-year supervision order.
He pleaded guilty to five counts of making indecent images of children and two counts of possessing extreme pornographic material.
After the hearing DC Sean Tonelli said: “This case was brought to the attention of Warwickshire Police by the Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre, who gather intelligence on those that download or share indecent images of children.
“Anybody who downloads or shares indecent images of children through the internet will always leave some form of a trail and when this is identified enforcement action will always be taken.”
Davis has also been ordered to take part in a community sex offender’s programme, and will be placed on the sex offenders register for seven yeasr. He must also allow police access to any computer he uses.
He had indicated that he would plead guilty to the seven offences at an earlier hearing at Leamington Magistrates Court on 19th July, after which he was released on conditional bail and told not to contact any child under 16 until his sentencing today.
