Pervert is spared jail because judge thinks he has been ‘punished enough’
A man caught with 145 indecent pictures of children has been spared jail because a judge decided he had been punished enough.
Paul Whitworth was at work when police visited his home and seized his computers, telling his wife they had information that the property’s computer IP address had been connected with downloads of illegal images of youngers.
Detectives found on the computers seven images in category A, the most serious, eight in category B and 130 in category C.
Whitworth (52), who had no previous convictions, admitted to the police that the images were his, and at Leicester Magistrates’ Court on Thursday, August 30, he pleaded guilty to three counts of making illegal images.
