Stanway pervert who had indecent images of children escapes jail

AN “isolated” young man who stored indecent images of children on an online storage account said he first accessed the pictures through pop-ups from pornography websites.

Kai Schadek, 22, was found to have stashed prohibited “cartoon” images of children on an iPhone, computer and an online storage account.

Colchester Magistrates’ Court heard police searched Schadek’s home, in Colchester, seizing the devices.

Schadek, of Villa Road, Stanway, admitted charges of possessing prohibited images, possessing an extreme image, and making indecent photographs of children.

The charges relate to 32 prohibited images found on an iPhone, one from a computer and 42 from a Google storage account.

Magistrates ordered Schadek to complete a two-year community order and a 30-day rehabilitation activity requirement.

He must also complete 200 hours of unpaid work.
