Cromer: Man Jailed For Having Indecent Images Of Children

20 May 2013, 13:02

A man from Cromer has been jailed after what police have described as one of the biggest finds of indecent images of children in Norfolk.

The 69 year old was sentenced at the end of last week to eight months in prison after pleading guilty to four counts of making and possessing indecent images of children. 

Christopher Robin Sibellas of Hillingdon Park, Overstrand, near Cromer, committed the offences in the North Walsham area between 2006 and 2012. 

When seized, Sibellas' laptop contained over 5600 images and movies, one of the largest discoveries of offensive images in Norfolk. 

DC Mark Randall, Great Yarmouth CID, who led the investigation, commented on the sentencing saying: 

"The Constabulary is committed to bringing such offenders to justice and has a dedicated team of investigators who deal with crimes involving children. 

"We hope this case sends out a strong message to those intent on possessing such images. We should remember that behind every image there is a victim of abuse."

Sibellas appeared at Norwich Crown Court on Friday 17 May 2013, where he was sentenced to eight months in prison and placed on the Sex Offenders Register for 10 years. He was also given a Sexual Offences Prevention Order (SOPO) for five years.
