A man from Brentford who downloaded nearly 250 child porn images has been spared jail.
Donald Adams, of Layton Road, admitted downloading 247 indecent pseudo-photographs of children and printing another nine such images.
The 51-year-old appeared at Kingston Crown Court on Monday (August 18), where he was given a four month prison sentence, suspended for two years, for both counts. That means he faces jail if he re-offends in the next two years.
Adams was also given a two-year supervision order, told to attend a sexual offending behaviour programme and ordered to sign on the sex offender register for two years. He had already been disqualified from working with children.
Pseudo-photographs are images which appear to be photos of children but have been manipulated, usually digitally. They are treated in the same way as actual photographs in court proceedings.
A Feltham man is due back in court next month after admitting making and distributing child porn.
