A 26-year-old man from Tamworth has been jailed for more than three years after a search of his home uncovered indecent images of children.
George Moreby, of The Hills in Warton, was the subject of a Sexual Harm Prevention Order, having previous convictions relating to indecent images and inciting a child to engage in sexual activity.
On Tuesday, April 9, Warwickshire detectives raided Moreby’s home, seizing several devices which were later found to have indecent images of children and images of bestiality saved on them.
At the time of his arrest at his home address, Moreby reportedly told one of the detectives: “I just can’t help myself, I stopped for a bit but started up again.
“I need to get some sort of help with it, I don’t even enjoy it – I’m addicted.”
Moreby was subsequently charged with breaching his Sexual Harm Prevention Order, together with offences involving indecent images of children and extreme pornography.
And on November 29 he was sentenced to a total of three-and-a-half years in prison.
DC Adam James said: “We welcome this sentence, and we hope it serves as a warning to those considering viewing indecent images.
“These materials cause catastrophic harm to children, and it is our aim to track down, arrest and present to the courts every single person in Warwickshire who views them.”
