Winsford paedophile who admitted having sex with a child locked up for four years

Liam Martin, 25, pleaded guilty to sexual activity with a child and making indecent images

A paedophile who admitted having sex with a child and making incident images of children has been caged for four years.

Liam Martin, 25, of Kingsway, Winsford, pleaded guilty at Chester Crown Court to five counts of engaging in sexual activity with a child under 16 in 2011 and making indecent images of children.

In a separate incident, a Cheshire police spokesman said Martin’s phone was checked by officers as part of his release conditions for a previous conviction for a child sex offence and the check uncovered a total of 271 category C images of children.

He has now been sent down for four years.
