Paedophile jailed for 8 years

8 years

A 49-year-old man has been jailed for eight years for possessing nearly 70,000 indecent images of children.

Jonathan Richard Godson supplied thousands of indecent images of children via two websites.

The forty nine year old was the administrator of a website that distributed the images.

Jersey Police say he is a danger to young people.

Detective Inspector Paul Kennea said, “Jonathan Godson was a prolific supplier of indecent images of children and it is likely this behaviour would have continued if he was not caught.

“He not only downloaded indecent images of children, but actively shared them with others, thus encouraging further offending, and further adding to the suffering of victims.

“He possessed thousands of images of children and hours of video.

“Every indecent image of children contains a victim of crime, and we will continue to actively pursue people who are connected to indecent images offences, whether that is the production, distribution or possession of such images.”
