Child rape images found at Oxford man’s home

A 31-year-old Oxford man has been given a three-year supervision order after downloading child sexual abuse images

Police raided Damien Garford’s home and found a combination of 81 videos and images, including 45 at levels four and five – the most serious.

He earlier admitted five counts of making indecent photographs of children between February 2005 and October 2007 and was sentenced at Oxford Crown Court on Tuesday.

Garford, now of Lyndhurst Road, Nottingham, was also told to sign the Sex Offenders’ Register for five years and banned from working with children or surfing the Internet without police-approved software.
