A man from Bowthorpe, Norwich, has been jailed for two-and-a-half years, for sending indecent images of himself to young girls he was chatting to online.
Jamie Palmer, who is 36, appeared at Norwich Crown Court on Tuesday, October 25, having pleaded guilty to eight offences; six counts of attempting to incite a girl to engage in sexual activity, possession of indecent images and distribution of indecent images, committed between April and May in 2015.
Police received information about Palmer in May 2015, when indecent images were uploaded to Instagram.
Palmer's home address, then in Reepham, was raided by the police in June 2015, when Palmer's electrical devices were seized.
Officers examined the items, and Palmer's phone was revealed to contain 140 indecent images and conversations with young girls online.
