Pervert who took photos of girl he abused is jailed

A pervert who took photographs of a teenage girl he was sexually abusing has been told he will spend at least five years behind bars.

The Recorder of Belfast, His Honour Judge Tom Burgess, told Alan David Moore (45) that because the convicted paedophile will continue to pose a significant risk in the future, he would be spending the rest of his life on licence.

However, the Belfast Crown Court judge warned Moore that at the end of the five years, whether he is released or not will be up to the Parole Commissioners Board.

At the end of a three-week trial last November, Moore, from Windslow Drive in Carrick, was convicted of three counts of indecently assaulting the 15-year-old girl, three charges of sexual activity with a child, one of committing an act of gross indecency, six of taking and making indecent images of children, and one of possessing an image of extreme pornography, all between January 31, 2008 and May 31, 2009.

The jury heard the schoolgirl was bombarded with highly sexualised chat on the internet.

Moore denied sexual contact, describing it as a fantasy world.
