A REGISTERED sex offender from Parkgate has been jailed for over three years for possessing indecent images of children.
Colin Stevenson (41) was sentenced to 40 months in prison at Sheffield Crown Court last Friday (April 16) after pleading guilty for possessing indecent images of children, breaching his sexual harm prevention order and failing to comply with notification requirements.
The court heard that on March 2, 2020, an officer attended his home address as part of his sex offender management. On inspection of his laptop, mobile phone, Kindle and Amazon fire stick, indecent images of children were found.
Stevenson was arrested and the devices were seized. An examination of the devices found indecent images of children.
Police said on February 11, 2021, the officer went to Stevenson's address and found further devices that he had concealed and failed to provide when instructed. These devices contained over 69 indecent images of children.
Stevenson was handed an extended sentence of six years four months, made up of 40 months in custody and an extension period of three years.
