Man had 30 indecent images of children


A 31-year-old man has admitted having 30 indecent images of children.

Robert Ian Whitworth, of Station Road, Kiveton Park, appeared at Sheffield Magistrates’ Court last Friday.

He pleaded guilty at a hearing earlier this year to possessing two category B indecent images of children and 28 category C images in September 2019.

He was sentenced to 18 weeks in prison, suspended for two years, ordered to carry out a 30-day rehabilitation activity requirement and given a five-year sexual harm prevention order.

He will also sign the sex offenders’ register for seven years and is subject to a 24-month supervision period.

Whitworth was also ordered to pay a £122 victim surcharge and costs of £85.
