A 37 year-old West Norfolk registered sex offender was jailed for a year after he was found to have breached his court order by downloading indecent images of children to his mobile phone, a court heard.

A West Norfolk sex offender, was found to have breached his court order when police checked his mobile phone and found he had downloaded three indecent images of children, a court heard.

Adrian Whiley, 37, was already on the sex offenders register for downloading indecent images of young children to his phone in March, last year, Norwich Crown Court was told.

Chris Youell, prosecuting, said that officers went to make a routine check on Whiley in September, this year, as he was on the sex offender’s register and when they checked his Smart phone they found he had been searching the internet for images of children and had three indecent images on his phone.

Whiley, of Town Close, East Winch, near King’s Lynn admitted making the indecent images and the court heard this put him in breach of a six month suspended jail term he was given in March, for a similar matter, where he had looked at images featuring children aged one to nine years old.

Judge Anthony Bate imposed the suspended jail term and added a further six months for the new offence and said that he had flouted the order by downloading the images. He also ordered that Whiley remain on the sex offenders register for seven years and be subject to a sexual offences prevention order.

John Morgans, for Whiley said that he had a number of difficulties and mental health problems.

“There are issues and limitations that he faces. Any time in custody is going to be particularly difficult.”
