Ramsey Man Jailed For Indecent Image Charges
A man from Ramsey's been jailed for a string of indecent image offences and a sexual assault on a young boy.
31 year-old Matthew Ward as arrested on Feb 13th at his home in Vinery Court, Ramsey, following a police warrant and search at the property. Officers seized data storage devices which were found to contain indecent images of children.
They also found indecent footage of two young boys on his mobile phone taken covertly inside a public toilet at a London theatre. The boys have never been identified.
Images and footage taken from other devices revealed Ward had sexually assaulted a boy.
"Ward pleaded guilty to sexual assault of a boy under 13, two counts of taking indecent images of children, two counts of possessing indecent images of children (relating to 217 images and videos) and two counts of making indecent images of children (relating to 731 images and videos)."
He was jailed for 3 years and 4 months at Peterborough Crown Court.
He was also made subject of a 10 year sexual harm prevention order, meaning he will be monitored on his release and be under tight restrictions.
DC Steve Martin, who investigated, said:
"These are very serious offences, which include creating his own indecent images, and this is reflected in the sentence. Ward is clearly a danger to children but the sexual harm prevention order means he will have restrictions on his movements on release and will be closely monitored by police."
