Hainault man placed on sex offenders register over child abuse images charges

A Hainault man has avoided prison after pleading guilty to a number of child sexual abuse images charges.

Christopher Greenshields, formerly of Redruth, Cornwall but now living in Brunswick Gardens, was sentenced at Truro Crown Court yesterday (Wednesday, September 5) after pleading guilty at a previous hearing.

He was charged with making 48 Category A indecent images of children – the most serious kind – as well as 82 Category B and 142 Category C.

Greenshields was handed a two-year community order, with the requirement he complete a 35-day rehabilitation course.

He will also be placed on the sex offenders register and was made the subject of a sexual harm prevention order.
