Pervert caught with child abuse images again jailed for second time

A PERVERT who threatened to ‘kill anyone who gets in my way’ was sent to jail for having child abuse images on his computer.

Kristian Woods, who changed his name from Lloyd Butler, was sent to jail for 20 months at Portsmouth Crown Court after admitting three charges of possessing indecent images of children between September 2012 and April 2017.

Woods, 28, of Billy Lawn Avenue, Havant, also admitted failing to comply with a sex offender requirements in September 2017 after not telling police of a change of address.

The court heard how the vile child images had been found on a computer at his friend’s house before it was reported to police.

Defence barrister Daniel Reilly said Woods, who had served 38 months in prison for similar offences previously resulting in his release in 2016, had become a public target for his crimes – resulting in him changing his name.

‘He changed his name and identity to give himself a fresh start within the community but others have since sought to let others know about the change,’

Mr Riley said. ‘He has been a target by the public with him having threats in the street and a Facebook campaign that saw a mob of people turning up at his address shouting for him to come out before police had to intervene.’

Mr Reilly said the ‘traumatic’ experience of going to jail had left Woods suffering with anxiety and suicidal thoughts.

But judge Jane Rowley took a dim view of Woods offending. Addressing Woods, she said: ‘You see yourself as a victim and take limited responsibility for your actions and make unjustified excuses.

‘You say you have been a target and had your life ruined but you have made threats by saying you will “kill anyone who gets in my way…I’m a ticking time bomb”. You are a high risk for reconviction.

‘You have continually denied your wrongdoing and you are a danger to the public and children so only a custodial sentence is sufficient.’

Portsmouth man admits having child abuse images

A MAN has been warned he faces prison after admitting to having child abuse images.

Kristian Woods, 28, of North End Avenue, Portsmouth, admitted three charges of possession of indecent images of children in categories A, B and C between September 2012 and April 2017.

He admitted failing to comply with sex offender notification requirements on September 4, 2017, by not telling police of his new address within three days.

He entered a basis of plea explaining why he had the images.

But addressing the judge, prosecutor James Kellam said: ‘He had them, and he knew he had them as he physically moved the hard drive on which they were stored.’

The Portsmouth Crown Court case was adjourned to June 1.

Judge William Ashworth said: ‘I will order a pre-sentence report prior to sentence. In my view this is likely to result in a sentence of immediate custody.’

Probation would consider ‘alternative disposals,’ he said.

Pervert had child abuse images


A man has been sentenced and jailed after being caught with child abuse images 

Lloyd Butler, known as Oz to his friends, pleaded guilty at Portsmouth Crown Court and was sentenced to jail by Judge Advocate Robert Hill.

Butler’s crimes came to light when a friend was looking on a laptop for deleted photographs.

The computer was given to the friend by Butler before in October last year.

Butler, 24, was arrested for downloading and distributing images of child abuse.

Officers found evidence of 24 films and 1,461 pictures.

Butler was jailed for three years and two months and has to register as a sex offender.

The court heard from prosecutor Daniel Sawyer that Butler, of North End Avenue, in Stamshaw, Portsmouth, admitted to viewing child abuse images 

During sentencing, Judge Hill said: ‘You have had an addiction to child sexual abuse images

‘But you elevated your addiction by distributing the pictures and movies.

‘One of the hallmarks in this case is the nature of the pictures.

‘They are classified as the most serious.’

Butler also pleaded guilty to producing cannabis with intent to supply.

He was sentenced to two months in prison to run concurrently.
