Repton pervert snared after asking for sick images on Skype

A paedophile was snared after he exchanged Skype messages with a man police were investigating.

Toby Overton had told the man online that he was interested in receiving images and movies of children between five and nine years old

On a MacBook belonging to Overton, 20, of Main Street, Repton, police discovered 19 images and six movies of children, ranging from the most to the least extreme category.

Between January 2012 and December 2014 Overton had spoken to a hundred people online and the nature of the conversations were sexual, heard Southern Derbyshire Magistrates’ Court.

Lynne Bickley, prosecuting, said the conversations referred to sexual acts with children and images were received by Overton but not recovered by police.

“During conversations he said he had sex with a child, including when he was a tennis coach,” said Miss Bickley. “But during his police interview he said this was just talk.”

Overton admitted making indecent images of children
