Jail term for sex offender who breached indecent images order

A serial sex offender who repeatedly breached orders to stop him from looking at indecent images of children has been jailed for five years.

Judge Michael Gledhill QC, sitting at London's Southwark Crown Court, also told Christopher Wyn Jones, 60, his sentence was being extended to include five years on licence to "protect the public from further offences".

Wyn Jones, of High Street, Tonypandy, in Wales, was sentenced to 30 months imprisonment for possession of indecent photographs of children to run consecutively to two concurrent 30-month sentences for breaching a sexual harm prevention order.

He had previously pleaded guilty to all charges.

Wyn Jones was on licence when these latest offences happened.

He had been released after being given sentences totalling four years in 2013 for similar offences.

The court was told that police went to the Royal Glamorgan Hospital in June 2017 after a report that indecent images were found on his iPad.

His carer spotted that Wyn Jones, who is wheelchair-bound and suffering from a degenerative illness similar to Parkinson's disease, had been deleting images on his iPad.

Police found an iPad by a settee when they searched his home in October 2017, despite Wyn Jones saying all his electronic devices had previously been taken away by the police.

Two graphic indecent movies involving children were found on the iPad.

The judge said the videos showed "disgusting acts" being inflicted against young girls and that Wyn Jones had "lied" to police about having the images.

His first court appearance concerning indecent photographs of children dates back to 2007, the judge said.

Prosecutor Andrew Davies described Wyn Jones as a "determined person, aged 60, with a clear predilection for watching and contacting young girls".
