Deganwy man who previously avoided custody is jailed for three years for having child sexual abuse images

A Deganwy man, who’d changed his name to hide his vile past, had child sexual abuse images once again including a video of a six months old baby being “horrifically tortured,” a judge said.

Owain Jones, 34, of Vardre Avenue, who’d set up a weed control business, was jailed for three years after he admitted distributing an indecent image and possession of child sexual abuse images

Caernarfon crown court heard 516 indecent images were recovered by officers including “original” filth not on the police database.

Prosecuting barrister Sion ap Mihangel said: “The defendant admitted he was sexually aroused by indecent images of children.”

In 2007 he received a suspended sentence because of indecent images.

Jo Maxwell, defending, said Jones had changed his name and was keen to seek help for his behaviour.

Judge Timothy Petts said in April 2018 police had seized computer equipment and found images of child abuse some described in court in “hideous” detail so the full nature of his depravity could be seen.

A ten-year sexual harm prevention order was made and Jones must register as a sex offender indefinitely.
