Man with 145 child porn images avoids jail
Jon Rosling

A MAN who was found with 145 indecent images of children has been handed a suspended sentence.

Jon Rosling (44), of Sunnyside, appeared at Sheffield Crown Court on Monday after admitting at an earlier hearing three counts of making indecent images of children.

He was sentenced to 30 weeks in prison suspended for two years, given a three-year Sexual Harm Prevention Order and placed on the sex offenders’ register for ten years.

Rosling was arrested in May last year after police received information indecent images were being viewed on a device that was traced to his home address.

His electronic devices were seized and forensically examined by specialist officers. He was found with two category A images (the most extreme level), 21 category B and 122 category C images.

Det Con Lee Walker said: “I am pleased that Rosling has accepted responsibility for his criminal behaviour and he will now be subject to strict conditions.

“If he breaches his order, this is a criminal offence and could result in his suspended jail term being activated.

“Indecent image offences are harmful and pose a risk to our communities.

“We are committed to investigating crimes of this nature and have a dedicated team whose sole purpose it is to identify individuals who make, possess and distribute indecent images of children, to apprehend them and bring them before court.”
