Burton pervert made indecent ‘moving images’ of child
A clinical safety officer from Burton who had more than a dozen hours of films involving child sexual abuse on his computer has been jailed for 16 months.
Michael Davies, 56, was said to have deliberately searched for the hardcore material and downloaded it onto a memory card.
He was jailed at Stafford Crown Court when he appeared for sentence, having previously admitted two offences of making indecent images of children.
In addition, Davies will be on the sex offenders’ register for 10 years and was also made the subject to a sexual harm prevention order which severely restricts his future use of the internet.
Recorder John Steel QC told Davies that he had been involved in “deliberate and systematic” searches for the indecent images which involved films of young girls engaging in sexual activity with adults.
He said he had taken into account that Davies had previously led a ‘blameless life’ and had worked tirelessly in his local community and that he had taken steps to address this behaviour.
The court heard that the images were made between February, 2013, and November last year when police searched his home in Stretton.
Tim Harrington, prosecuting, said that in total there was more than 16 hours of material – 19 moving images in Category A and a further six films of Category B – which had been downloaded and some stored on a memory card.
He said that most of the images involved girls aged between nine and 12, although there was also a film of a younger girl being raped and another image involving a five-year-old child
The court was told that Davies, married with four children, had been forced to move out of the family home and had been living at an address in Edale Way, Belper.
He had also been suspended from his job involving security systems for the NHS.
A 55-year-old pervert has pleaded guilty in court to making indecent images of children.
Michael Davies made indecent photographs, namely 19 ‘category A’ moving images of a child.
He pleaded guilty to the charge at Burton Magistrates’ Court yesterday, and to a further charge of making six ‘category B’ moving images of a child.
During the time of the offences he lived in Guinevere Avenue, Stretton.
Category A is the most serious categorisation of this kind of offence.
Davies (pictured leaving court) spoke only to confirm his name, age and address, and to plead guilty to all charges yesterday morning.
All the images were made between February 5, 2013, and November 15, 2015.
A search warrant executed by police found the indecent images on an iPhone and a sim card.
Davies, who now lives in Edale Way, Belper, will appear at crown court at a later date for sentencing, and has been granted unconditional bail until then.
