AN internet wrestling blogger and music PR agent has been jailed for a string of child abuse images offences in Belfast
Phil Allely, 41, from Geeragh Place, Belfast pleaded guilty to 20 charges carrying a total of 96 months sentencing.
The offences include possession of indecent photographs or pseudo photographs of children, possession of an extreme pornographic image and making an indecent photograph or pseudo photograph of a child.
Allely was eventually jailed for seven months with all 20 sentences running concurrently to the longest. He will also be placed on the sex offenders register for ten years.
The charges date back as far as February 2010 until march 2010 when Allely’s laptop was reported to contain folders named Dark fantasies and animals in which contained images with names such as “prelolitasworld140”
The images were discovered by an it technician who had been asked to repair the laptop.
It is believed pervert Allely went to great lengths to hide his charges telling friends and family there had been a mistake and that the files had attached themselves to other downloads.
However he pleaded guilty at Belfast crown court earlier this month.
Allely was well known in Northern Ireland’s music scene plugging himself as an agent and pr executive for upcoming unsigned bands and was also previous press officer for Belfast Central mission.
