East Huntspill man receives community order over explicit images

A pensioner from near Burnham-On-Sea who stored thousands of images of child pornography on his computer has been handed a community order by a judge.

Raymond Cox, 62, of Church Close in East Huntspill, pleaded guilty to ten counts of making indecent photographs of children and was given a community order at Taunton Crown Court last Friday (March 9th).

Cox stored more than 10,000 indecent images of children on his computer's hard drive dating back to 2004, the court heard.

Judge Michael Longman
placed Cox on the sex offenders' register for five years and handed him a three-year community order.

The judge told the hearing: "These were images of young children being exploited by adults for the sexual gratification of other adults like yourself. I need to do what I can to protect children in the future."
