Paedophile sentenced for indecent images of children

POLICE recovered indecent/abusive images of children as young as three after they seized a computer at the home of Leeds paedophile Simon White.

Operation Ore officers went to White’s home in Rydall Place, Holbeck, after being given his details by American authorities investigating an Internet company.

His computer equipment was seized and more than 600 images were recovered from folders or unallocated clusters on the hard drive.

White, 28, who admitted possessing 15 indecent images, was ordered to attend a sex offender programme during a three-year community rehabilitation order, to complete 50 hours’ community punishment and to pay 250 costs.

He was also ordered to put his address on the sex offender register for five years.
