A 32 year-old man from Nottinghamshire has been sentenced to two years in prison after admitting exchanging photos and videos of child abuse online.
Brett Green from Bircotes swapped content which included the highest category of abuse online with someone believed to be in South America.
He pleaded guilty to seven offences of making, possessing and distributing indecent images of children.
Green will also be placed on the Sexual Offender's Register for the next ten years.
Investigating officer Detective Constable Stuart Dolby said:
“Green’s case demonstrates the way in which paedophiles are using the web to engage in an international exchange of images of videos of children being abused for the gratification of adults.
“Green admitted that he knew what he was doing was utterly wrong, but clearly this did not stop him from viewing and exchanging the content. It was only the intervention of CEOP and Nottinghamshire Police, and the seizure of his computers which prevented him from continuing his interest in this material.
“What this also shows is that the use of the web by paedophiles is being stringently monitored by such as CEOP and other law enforcement agencies around the world.
“This case should send out the strongest possible message that here is no hiding place for paedophiles even on the so-called ‘dark web’ or private networks.”
