Fenland man had nearly 7500 indecent images
A man who was found with thousands of indecent images of children on three separate devices has been sentenced.
Robert Norman, 36, had the images on his phone, laptop and a USB stick.
The images were found following a search on his home in Drybread Road, Whittlesey, on 7 September, 2017.
The devices were found to contain 7414 category C images, 127 category B and 69 category A (the most severe).
Norman, who is already a registered sex offender, pleaded guilty to three counts of making indecent images of children and breach of a Sexual Harm Prevention Order.
Today (April 11) at Cambridge Crown Court he was sentenced to a three year community order, 60 days Rehabilitation Activity Requirement and five years on the SHPO.
DC Jacqueline Bremner said: “Tackling the making and distribution of indecent images is a priority for police across the country and this sentence shows there are consequences for those who view such images.”
