Pervert shared images of child sexual abuse online

A man who shared images of child sexual abuse online has been jailed after coming to notice during a covert police operation.

Adam Wrobleski, 26, came to the attention of the Metropolitan Police in June last year when he began sharing explicit material in what he believed were private groups on messaging apps.

Some of the videos he shared were classified as Category A, depicting the most serious sexual acts that can be perpetrated against children.

When Wrobleski boasted on-line that he intended to commit acts of sexual abuse against children, officers from Nottinghamshire Police’s Response team moved in and arrested him in the early hours of the morning and then prepared a detailed handover for Public Protection officers.

Further indecent images and videos of children were found when officers searched his phone.

Wrobleski, of Langley Close, Mansfield, denied having a sexual interest in children and insisted to officers that he had simply forwarded on material that he had found in other chat groups.

He later pleaded guilty to five charges of distributing and making indecent image of children.

The charges of making indecent images relate to the act of saving or storing an image on a device.

Appearing at Nottingham Crown Court on Wednesday and was sentenced to serve a total of 20 months.

He was also placed on the sex offenders register for 10 years and will be closely monitored by Nottinghamshire Police when he is released.

He was also required to pay £128 victim surcharge.
