Thurrock Chief Inspector Sentenced Over Indecent Images
A former Thurrock chief inspector's been sentenced, after admitting one count of making indecent images of children.
34-year-old Ben Hodder, who's from Thurrock, appeared at Snaresbrook Crown Court today over images found on his laptop and phone.
He was given a six-month prison sentence, suspended for two years.
He was also made subject of a six-month electronic curfew which is part of a 12-month supervision order, will pay a £1,200 fine and will be on the sex offenders’ register for seven years.
The force suspended him from duty in May last year when the images were found on a MacBook laptop and an iPhone.
Essex police say a special case hearing will take place in April to consider his future employment with the force.
A criminal conviction of this nature would ordinarily result in the dismissal of the officer.
A man has been jailed for four years and banned from driving for five years after a fatal crash in Weeley Heath.
