Whitehaven man had scores of indecent images of children

[A] MAN who downloaded scores of indecent images of children has been handed a suspended jail term.

Police seized computer equipment after visiting the West Cumbria home of 56-year-old John Moffez in August, 2015.

When a tower device was forensically analysed they learned a total of 88 illegal still and moving indecent images of youngsters had been downloaded. Fifteen were classed in category A – the most serious.

Moffez had previously pleaded not guilty to three counts of making indecent photographs of children, between April, 2014, and August the following year.

But at Carlisle Crown Court today (WED) he changed his pleas to guilty.

Judge Peter Hughes QC suspended a six-month prison sentence for two years. Moffez was also given a two-year community order.

He was made subject to the terms of a sexual harm prevention order, and the sex offender notification requirements, both for seven years.

Judge Hughes told Moffez, of Foxhouses Road, Whitehaven: “Viewing images of children who are sexually abused is abhorrent.”
