Teenage Wakefield pervert who sold sick images says he ‘can’t open door for takeaways’ due to street abuse

A pervert from Wakefield has bemoaned not being able to leave his home without being attacked in the street.

Dillan Waters was convicted in the summer of downloading and distributing indecent images of children showing the rape and torture of young children., and complained that people assault him and threaten him.

He lives just 100 metres from a nursery

The 18-year-old was spared custody and given a community order, but says he now can’t even answer the door for a takeaway delivery without people gathering outside his Manorfield Drive home in Horbury to hurl abuse at him.

The claims were made during a hearing at Leeds Crown Court on Wednesday after he admitted failing to comply with the requirements of the sex offenders register, and with his sexual harm prevention order (SHPO).

He had been placed on the register and given the SHPO for five years when he was sentenced in July at Leeds Magistrates’ Court for admitting six counts of downloading illegal images and one of distributing the images.

But within days of being sentenced, he was visited by police who found he had not registered a mobile phone with the police, or a Firestick for his TV, which put him in breach.

Mitigating, Zarreen Alam-Cheetham said: “He feels unable to leave his house because of the threats”

“He can’t open the door to collect a takeaway because there are people waiting outside for him. He is just 18-years-old, which must be an important consideration for the court. He wants to get a job, he is willing to do anything to get by and support his grandmother. He is solely reliant on her.”

She said that Waters only distributed the images on Snapchat for money.

Judge Andrew Stubbs KC decided to revoke the original order and give him a 24-month community order, with 180 hours of unpaid work and 45 rehabilitation days.

He warned him: “You were distributing these images which makes it much more serious. Because of what you were doing, society need to keep an eye on you. Everybody needs to know what you are doing.

“If you do (break the law), you’re going to be caught very, very quickly. That’s why the police are watching you and need to know what phone you have got and what’s on your TV. These are serious orders and your attitude to them is very poor. Even though you are 18 now you have got a lot of growing up to do. You have got to come to terms with the fact people who know what you have done are going to be angry. It’s yours to deal with, it’s yours to own. It does not mean you can stay in your house and ignore court orders.”
