Man jailed over child porn on phone

A MAN who had indecent images of children stored on his phone has been jailed for a year.

Ashley Colville, 23, downloaded 27 images from an internet chat room, Durham Crown Court heard.

Colville, of Cotswold Place, Peterlee, admitted 10 charges of possessing indecent images, and one charge of making indecent images. The Recorder, Ms Sophie Drake, said: “You are supporting what is a vile industry.

“In my judgment you do have a sexual interest in young children, even though you claim you do not.”

Colville was given an indefinite Sexual Offences Prevention Order, restricting internet use.
