Ruthin factory supervisor had indecent images of children

A factory supervisor who had a small number of child sexual abuse images of the worst type, featuring youngsters aged between six and twelve being abused and with bondage, received an 18 months community order on Friday.

Martin Casoria, aged 59, of Haulfryn, Ruthin, admitted possessing indecent images and must do 150 hours unpaid work and a rehabilitation activity.

Judge Huw Rees at Caernarfon crown court made a sexual harm prevention order for five years and the defendant must register as a sex offender for the same period and pay £340 costs.

Prosecuting counsel Matthew Curtis said Casoria told police he had pretended to be a girl of 15 and used KIK Messenger.
