Perverted aerospace boss avoids prison
An aerospace boss who was found possessing child porn has lost his job and good reputation and placed his home at risk because of a single day of offending.
Kraig Murley, 42, a former development engineering manager at Honeywell Aerospace in Yeovil, admitted 15 offences of possessing child sexual abuse images at Taunton Crown Court and narrowly escaped a prison sentence.
Local police received a tip-off from the United States that he had downloaded pictures from the internet and searched his home with a warrant on June 12, 2013.
Officers seized his computer and were about to leave when Murley, of Camel Street, Marston Magna, arrived from work and said: “They’re all on my laptop”, said Caroline Bolt, prosecuting.
He admitted all 15 offences which included eight counts of making an indecent movie clip of a child.
On six occasions he said he made indecent photographs of a child by downloading them from the internet.
He also said he made an additional 1,983 indecent photographs and 41 indecent movie clips of a child
