A PUB CHEF who caught with indecent images of children has been jailed.

Louis Joe Kalizewski has a previous conviction for raping a minor.

The 23-year-old has “admitted he has a sexual interest in children", a court heard.

When police raided his home on July 12 last year they found him in bed.

Daily Echo:

Kalizewski, of Sullivan Road Southampton, presented his electronic device on request.

Upon examination, officers found indecent images which included one category A, three category B and four category C images.

Prosecution barrister, Edward Warren told how during a police interview that day Kalizewski claimed he “had no idea” how the images came to be on his computer.

Appearing before Southampton Crown Court on Monday he faced three counts of possessing indecent photographs of children with the offences taking place between April 15, 2018, and July 12 last year. He had previously pleaded guilty.

Daily Echo:

Mr Warren told the court how Kalizewski was convicted at a youth court in 2015 for raping a boy under the age of 13.

Defending, Tom Horder said his client still is relatively young and was caught with a “small number of images” which he did not attempt to hide.

Mr Horder added, Kalizewski “hopes that he can get some help”.

Judge Peter Henry slammed the images as particularly unpleasant.

He jailed him for eight months and gave him a ten-year sexual harm prevention order.

Kalizewski is subject to a ten-year notification requirement.
