Cambridge: Paedophile Jailed
A man from Cambridge, who downloaded more than 13 thousand indecent images of children, has been jailed for 15 months.
Police traced Michael Garratt through his internet address and found he had shared a number of indecent images through file sharing networks in March 2012.
The 61-year-old was arrested at his home in Chancellors Walk, Cambridge, on 12th June last year.
His computers were seized and were found to contain more than 13,600 indecent images of children and 272 movies.
Officers discovered he had 13,664 indecent images: 62 images at level five (the most severe legal classification); 173 at level four; 177 at level three; 256 at level two and 12,996 at level one.
He pleaded guilty to three counts of making indecent images and three counts of possessing indecent images and one count of distributing indecent images at Cambridge Crown Court on Friday 8th.
On Friday (10th May) he was jailed for a total of 15 months at Cambridge Crown Court.
Garratt was also made the subject of a Sexual Offences Prevention Order (SOPO) for five years and will be placed on the Sex Offenders Register for seven years.
Detective Constable Gareth Purdy said: "I hope this sends out a clear message that anyone who thinks they can access and share such images will not get away with it.
We will find out and we will catch up with you. This is not a victimless crime as it fuels the abuse of children worldwide."
