Oswestry man gets community order over child sex images

An Oswestry man who downloaded more than a thousand indecent images of children has been given a community order in court

Daniel Dey, 42, of of Beatrice Street, was sentenced at Shrewsbury Crown Court after admitting three charges of making indecent images between May 2014 and October last year.

Amongst the 1200 vile images found, 155 involved photographs of the most serious kind showing the rape or torture of young children

Dey was given a two-year community order including a requirement to carry out 35 days of rehabilitation activities and a six- month alcohol treatment programme.

Judge Peter Barrie also applied a Sexual Harm Prevention Order, restricting Dey’s internet access, and told him he must sign the sex offenders register.
