A MAN has been jailed for eight months after admitting making indecent images of children.
Aaron Wall, 45, (pictured right) of Terrace Road, St Leonards, pleaded guilty to 11 offences of making indecent images of children and two of possession of extreme pornographic images when he appeared before Hove Crown Court on March 27.
He was also required to register as a sex offender for 10 years and was served by the court with a Sexual Offences Prevention Order restricting his access to the Internet for 10 years.
Law had appeared at the same court on Tuesday 25 February and pleaded guilty to the charges.
The offences involved a total of 1,887 indecent images including level five images, which are the most severe, and 10 extreme pornographic images.
A warrant had been executed at his home on 1 November 2012.
Wall was arrested and later released on bail pending the examination of computer items seized during a search of his home.
The intelligence-led investigation was carried out by the Paedophile On-Line Investigation Team of Sussex Police and charges were authorised by the Crown Prosecution Service,
All the images were taken from the Internet and none are believed to be of local children. There was no evidence of any contact offending.
Detective constable Kenneth Stark said: “We will follow up information about this type of offending whether it comes from law enforcement as in this case or from members of the public.”
