Married Huddersfield paedophile caught with images of child abuse

A married paedophile from Huddersfield was caught with images of child abuse.

Jordan Grantham’s family home in Bradley, was raided on June 4 last year.

His devices were seized and he was found to have images in the most serious category

He also had 1,576 other prohibited images of children.

The 34-year-old was handed an 18-month suspended prison sentence after pleading guilty to two counts of making indecent photos of children and possessing a prohibited image of a child.

Prosecutor Catherine Duffy said he had downloaded the images between May 2017 and early June last year.

Leeds Crown Court heard Grantham has since moved to Portland Street, Huddersfield

Grantham was ordered to sign the sex offenders register for seven years and was made subject to a seven-year sexual harm prevention order.

Judge Simon Batiste described Grantham’s wife as ‘unusually supportive’ and told him: “You are lucky in that regard.”
