Oxford paedophile jailed after more child sex offences

A repeat sex offender believes the police officer responsible for supervising him in the community is his only friend, a court heard.

Jamie Morrison, 33, told the probation officer who compiled his pre-sentence report that the constable in Thames Valley Police’s public protection unit was his ‘only friend’ – and felt he had ‘let him down’ by committing more child sex offences.

Imposing an extended sentence of 46 months’ imprisonment and a further 14 months on licence, Judge Ian Pringle KC said: “You’ve got to understand, Mr Morrison, that you’ve got to cease doing these things, if for no other reason [than] you’ll let the person down who was supervising you and who you regard as your friend.”

Police were tipped off last April that Morrison had been looking at indecent images of children.

Officers visited him at home on April 11, when they found that the tip-off was true and he had been accessing and distributing the illegal material.

He was also found to have been in touch with what he thought was a nine-year-old girl.

In fact, the ‘child’ was a Denmark-based adult pretending to be a girl online.

Morrison, of Luther Street, Oxford, pleaded guilty at earlier hearings to breaching his sexual harm prevention order, making and distributing indecent images, and attempted sexual communication with a child.

He has numerous previous convictions for looking at indecent images of children online.

On Friday (January 27), Judge Pringle – who jailed him himself in 2017 – described his criminal record as ‘unenviable’.

“I have come to the conclusion you are a danger and an extended sentence in court case is appropriate,” the judge said.

The total length of Morrison’s sentence is five years, comprising a 46 month immediate jail term followed by an extended 14 months on licence and under the supervision of the probation service.

He will serve two-thirds of the jail term behind bars before being eligible for release.

However, he is liable to be recalled at any time, meaning he could serve the full five year sentence in prison.

Convicted paedophile caught accessing indecent images and videos of children

A convicted sex offender was jailed after he breached a court order by accessing indecent images and videos of children.

Jamie Morrison, 27, of Cowley Road, Oxford, was sentenced to 16 months in total behind bars at Oxford Crown Court yesterday.

The court heard how Morrison, who had been convicted of downloading indecent images at Oxford Magistrates’ Court in February, had breached a sexual harm prevention order which had been made for different offence in July 2015.

Judge Ian Pringle QC said the court regarded breaches of sexual harm prevention orders as a ‘serious matter’.

She added the 29 category A still images, 21 category B images and 38 category C images were found on the phone.

There were also 35 category A, eight category B and four category C videos.

Defending, Claire Wade said: “He is not somebody who is in denial about his offending.”

Sentence for man who had indecent images of children

A MAN who downloaded indecent images of children was ordered by a judge to rehabilitate in the community with the support of his friends.

Jamie Morrison of Simon House, Paradise Street, Oxford, admitted making 54 images found on a USB stick in April.

Judge Peter Ross postponed sentencing him then in order to get more information from the probation service about how his offending could be managed in the community.

Yesterday, 25-year-old Morrison was back at Oxford Crown Court.

Judge Ross told him: “Those who offend in the way you have offended encourage the abuse of children.

“All over the world there are children who are abused in the most horrific ways, that abuse being photographed or filmed then being distributed to the likes of you. It has to be stamped out.”

He went on: “All the evidence I have read in probation service reports indicated you are engaging with the various services.

“You have a great deal of support available to you and you are making use of that.

“You have also got the support of a circle of friends outside my order and I encourage you to continue to use it because clearly you need to be integrated into the wider community of people who are law-abiding and behaving normally.”

He handed Morrison a three-year community sentence, which means he will have to be supervised by the probation service for three years and will have to complete a 76-day Thames Valley Sexual Offending Treatment Programme.

He was also put on the Sex Offenders Register and ordered to pay a £60 victim surcharge.
