Paedophile had images of child rape


A pervert who was found with hundreds of disgusting images of child abuse has avoided a prison sentence. Instead, he will be sent on a rehabilitation programme.

Ale brewer Martin Howcutt, 42 had many images of the most serious category A pictures on his computer, as well as some of extreme pornography involving animal sex.

The category A images showed real children being raped.

He was caught after an investigation by Essex police who then tipped off their counterparts in Wiltshire

Judge Andrew Barnett said “It would be better for society if he was given some help by way of a long community order”

Howcutt of Vicarage garden, Netheravon, was put on the sex offenders register and given a sexual harm prevention order for five years.
