Former Cumbrian man, 45, had child porn

A former Penrith man who was investigated by police over an allegation that was never proceeded with was found to have downloaded child pornography onto his home computer.

At Carlisle Crown Court, Graeme Davies, 45, was put on the Sex Offenders’ Register for seven years.

At an earlier hearing, Davies, formerly of Cliburn, near Penrith, but now living in Carnforth, Lancahire, admitted seven charges relating to the images found on his computer.

Prosecutor Tim Evans told the court that the defendant, who has learning difficulties, had downloaded 70 level one images – legally the least serious category of child porn. He also had six images of the more serious categories three and four.

Mr Evans said: “On February 11, 2013 the police became involved with this defendant in relation to another matter which was not ultimately pursued and as a result of that they looked at the defendant’s computer.”

Davies told police he had been curious.

Judge Paul Batty QC imposed a two-year supervision order and banned the defendant from working with children. Also an order which Davies’ computer will be monitored.
