Northants paedophile jailed for indecent images

A man formerly from Northamptonshire who distributed indecent images of children has been jailed for 22 months.

Martyn Webster, 47, who now lives in Windmill Road, St Minver, Wadebridge, Cornwall, was arrested on October 24, 2017, after police executed a warrant in Northamptonshire after police received information that an indecent photo had been uploaded from that address.

Police gained access to Webster’s electronic devices and uncovered more indecent images of children.

Webster was charged with four counts of distributing indecent images, two counts of category B and two counts of category C.

He pleaded guilty in the magistrates court and was sentenced at Northampton Crown Court today (Monday, July 6).

Judge Rebecca Crane sentenced Webster to a total of 22 months imprisonment.

Webster will also be subject to a sexual harm prevention order and the sex offenders register for 10 years. He was also ordered to pay a statutory surcharge of £100.00.
