A sick pervert who downloaded and distributed indecent images of children has been jailed.

John Aled Jones, age 38, of Bracebridge Road, Atherstone, had 226 indecent images, many of them category A, the most serious type, on his phone when officers seized it

Having received intelligence on September 29, officers they went to his home address on October 8 to arrest him.

They also found evidence he had distributed an indecent category A video and seven indecent photographs, including two category A.

He was sentenced at Warwick Crown Court on Thursday (November 12) to four years and four months in prison after he had previously pleaded guilty to four counts of distributing an indecent photograph of a child, three counts of making an indecent photograph of a child, and breach of a sexual harm prevention order.

Jones was also convicted of breach of a sexual harm prevention order which was put in place following a previous conviction for making indecent images of children.
