Pervert Paul Kelly has been jailed after he downloaded hundreds of indecent images of children over a 12-year period.

The 56-year-old was arrested after police executed a warrant at his Burslem home and seized his laptop, phone and some CDs.

They were examined and were found to contain still images at category A – the most serious

And police found he had used search terms including ‘pre teen’.

Kelly, of Moorland Road, Burslem, pleaded guilty to three offences of making indecent photographs of children between March 3, 2005 and August 17, 2017 and possession of a prohibited image.

Recorder Rebecca Herbert said only an immediate prison sentence could be justified.

She told Kelly: “Some of the material the police found on your devices was absolutely appalling. It included images of very young children being raped.

Kelly was sentenced to 8 months imprisonment
