Adams, of Shipwrights Avenue, Chatham told police the images must have got on to the computer’s hard drive after he found SD cards in a box in the town and he wanted to see what was on them, a court heard. The images ranged from category A to the most serious, category C. The 47-year-old denied six charges of possessing indecent photographs of children but a jury found him guilty after going on trial at Maidstone Crown Court. He was jailed on Monday at the same court for four years.
Police discovered disgusting sexual photographs and videos of youngsters on a paedophile’s laptop and arrested him.

“He was being closely monitored by officers due to previous offending” Adams admitted breaching a Sexual Offence Prevention Order which was in place due to a previous offence. A new order has now been imposed and will come into effect after Adams’ release from prison. Investigating officer PC Emma Willson said: “Adams tried to claim he was not responsible for these images and videos.
“He was being closely monitored by officers due to previous offending and it was through this monitoring that this offending came to light. “Adams’ custodial sentence is justified, and I hope it acts as a deterrent to others.”
