Rhuddlan web designer jailed for distributing child sexual abuse images

A web designer was jailed for 16 months after he admitted distributing child sexual abuse images to another paedophile

James Tolmie, aged 59, of Castle Street, Rhuddlan, also pleaded guilty to possessing indecent images of children when police raided a property at Abergele last May and a computer was seized.

Judge Nicola Jones ordered the defendant to register as a sex offender and made a sexual harm prevention order for ten years.

She said one child shown in the images had been bound in a painful manner.

“Only an immediate custodial sentence is appropriate,” the judge declared.
