Pervert emailed child porn to teen in Northern Ireland

A man who sent an explicit video and indecent photos from England to a 17-year-old girl in Northern Ireland over the internet has been jailed for 18 months.

A video of a child as young as five involved in sexual activity and photographs of young teenagers were sent to the girl by Andrew David Jones from Telford, Shropshire, after he asked her to be his friend on a social networking site.

Prosecutor Andrew Barkley told the court that the girl was on the MSN Messenger site at her home in Northern Ireland in April 2009 when Jones asked to be her friend.

Jones then sent her photographs of young teenagers, followed by the explicit video involving a girl aged about five.

The teenager contacted the police immediately.

When the man’s home was searched it was found he had other videos on his laptop.

Jones pleaded guilty to a total of 11 charges, seven counts of distributing indecent images and four of possessing indecent images at an earlier Crown Court hearing.

He was jailed for 18 months and put on on the sex offenders’ register for 10 years.
