Daily Echo: Woman downloaded indecent images of children Woman downloaded indecent images of children

A WOMAN downloaded thousands of indecent images of children, a court heard.

Davina Ayrton, who was born David Ayrton, admitted possessing nearly 4,500 images graded level one – nude poses with no sexual activity – at the residential home in Fordingbridge where she lived in March last year, Bournemouth Crown Court was told.

But among the images the 32-year-old, who has mental health issues, had downloaded was one rated level four, the second most serious category.

Prosecutor Heather Shimmen said: “The defendant is subject to a mental health order and is restricted to a residential care home for people with learning difficulties and mental health issues.

“Part of her care plan is that her use of electrical devices and mobile phones is monitored by staff.

“During one of these checks the home manager came across the images, which caused her concern, and she contacted the police.”

Judge Harrow was shown examples of the images and the 32-yearold’s Google search history, as well as a psychiatric report.

He imposed a three-year community order with supervision and a sexual offences prevention order with a number of conditions attached.

Ayrton was also ordered to sign the sex offenders register for five years and to pay a £60 victim surcharge.

I struggle to see a public interest in prosecuting him. The institution which detains him can provide more for his wellbeing than an overstretched Probation Officer and a SOPA is setting him up to fail. What do you do when he's next found looking at dirty pictures? Lock him up in an ordinary prison where the poor soul will be at the mercy of the inmates?
Get real.
