Man Jailed For Indecent Images Of Children

Gino Iebba, 40, of Farm Close, Horsham.

A Horsham man has been jailed for offences relating to indecent images of children.

Gino Iebba, 40, of Farm Close, Horsham, was sentenced to 18 months imprisonment and will be a registered sex offender for 10 years.

A Horsham man has been sent to prison over offences relating to indecent images of children.

Gino Iebba, 40, of Farm Close, Horsham, was sentenced to 18 months imprisonment when he appeared at Lewes Crown Court on Friday (13 November).

He had pleaded guilty at a previous hearing to six offences of possessing indecent images of children, two offences of distributing indecent images, and two offences of possessing extreme pornographic images.

Iebba was also given a Sexual Harm Prevention Order (SHPO) to last until further ordered by the Court, severely restricting his access to computers.

He will also be a registered sex offender for ten years.

The case followed an intelligence-led investigation by the Paedophile On-Line Investigation Team (POLIT) of Sussex Police.

None of the images are believed to be of local children and there was no evidence of contact offending, whether directly or on-line.

Detective Constable Helen Curtis of POLIT said; “Iebba used Skydrive, a ‘cloud storage’ medium, and Skype, a  medium for video and audio calls from a computer, to help carry out his offences. This type of offending is committed using many different media, but this case again demonstrates that we are able to adapt our investigations in order to continue to bring these child sex offenders to justice.”
