Stoke-on-Trent paedophile caught with images of babies being sexually abused
A paedophile has been jailed after being caught with thousands of images of children and babies being sexually abused.
Police seized mobile phones and laptops after carrying out a raid on Kiefer Dawson’s Trent Vale home.
They discovered 3,400 indecent photos of youngsters.
Stoke-on-Trent Crown Court heard many of the images were of very young children and even babies.
During his interview, Dawson admitted he was sexually interested in ‘girls aged four and up’.
Now the defendant has been jailed for 10 months
Prosecutor Daniel Oscroft said a search warrant was executed at the address in August 2019.
He added: “Numerous devices were recovered and analysed.
“Some of the images included babies and very young children. He said he started downloading images four years ago and used a browser to search the dark web and download indecent images.
“He started watching animated porn where the girls look younger. He said he was interested in girls aged four and up. He started downloading images and transferring them onto his phone.”
1,738 indecent images at category A – the most serious;
635 at category B;
1,067 at category C.
