Dalton paedophile avoids jail after pleading guilty to indecent images offences
A PAEDOPHILE has managed to avoid jail after admitting a string of offences relating to indecent images of children.
Christopher Kenneth Wear, of Market Street, Dalton, pleaded guilty to four charges when he appeared at Barrow Crown Court last month.
The 31-year-old admitted three counts of making the images between September 2009 and November last year, and one of possession of images in November last year.
The three images he pleaded guilty to making were of Category A, B and C. Indecent images of children are classified by category, with Category A being the most serious.
At Preston Crown Court today, Wear was given a seven-month custodial sentence, suspended for 18 months.
