Ordered child porn on internet

Date: February 11, 2008

A MAN who ordered child porn DVDs over the internet and asked for them to be delivered to the shop where he worked has narrowly escaped being jailed.

Paul Hopkins pleaded guilty at Warwick Crown Court to inciting the distribution of indecent images and possessing 37 indecent images of children.

Hopkins (46) of Coldicote Farm Cottage, Evenlode Lane, Moreton-in-Marsh, was given a ten-month prison sentence suspended for two years after the Judge heard he suffers from Parkinson's disease.

He was also ordered to take part in a sex offender's treatment programme, banned from working, approaching or staying overnight in the same house as any child, to pay £500 costs, and will have to register as a sex offender.

Prosecutor Tom Schofield said that in 2005 the US postal service carried out a sting operation by posting adverts for DVDs on a known paedophile website.

Mr Schofield pointed out that the titles left no doubt as to their supposed content, with one described as cute little nine-year-old girl appears to get raped,' before going into further details of the acts performed on her.

In October that year Hopkins contacted the site and ordered six of the DVDs, paying for them by sending off a Travelex cheque for 180 dollars.

Hopkins was identified as the person who had ordered the DVDs, and he had given his place of work, a shop in Stratford town centre, as the return address.
