Councillor on sex crimes register

A parish councillor who admitted taking indecent pictures of a 14-year-old girl has been placed on the sex offender’s register.

Graham White, 61, from Woodside, pleaded guilty to four counts of taking indecent photographs of a minor.

The pictures were found when police searched his home in January.

White was given a three year rehabilitation order by magistrates in Shropshire and must take part in a sex offenders programme.

The court was told White had been a parish councillor in Madeley but had resigned last month.

His name will stay on the the sex offender’s register for five years.
