Main article content
Scott Marshall, 42, from Stockton has been sentenced to 14 months in prison at Teesside Crown Court today (11th October) after pleading guilty to making indecent images of children.
Marshall, who will also be placed on the Sex Offender Register was initially charged with four counts of making indecent images of children after the Sex Offender Management Unit (SOMU) seized two devices from his home which contained nearly 2,500 indecent images of children.
Speaking of the sentence, Investigating Officer, Detective Constable Barbara Johnson from SOMU said: “We welcome the sentence handed to Marshall today, he is an individual who has repeatedly committed offences of this nature and he has now been given a prison sentence to pay for his crimes.
“The images located on his devices are real children who have been subject to horrific abuse, and individuals like Scott Marshall who access disturbing images and videos contribute to the ongoing abuse that these children face, and it is unforgiveable.”
