Man jailed for 16 months for possessing and distributing indecent images of children


A JUDGE told a man who passed on indecent images of children that he was “in denial” about his predilection for such material.

Durham Crown Court heard that of 15 images distributed by Ronald Lamb of Ravensworth Court, South Hetton to a fellow social media user, one, featuring a girl aged 10, involved a man performing a sexual act.

Martin Towers, prosecuting, said the image was accompanied by Lamb’s comment: “Wish that was me”.
