Man caught with indecent images of children pictures spared jail

A Dudley man caught with over 600 indecent photographs of children has been given a 12 month jail sentence suspended for two years.

Daniel Mallen, aged 28, of Beecher Street, admitted three charges of making indecent images of children and he was further made the subject of a 10 year Sexual Harm Protection Order.

Mallen was also told by Judge Simon Ward he must register as a sex offender for the next 10 years and told he must attend a rehabilitation course.

Wolverhampton Crown Court was told the images were found when police officers went to the home of Mallen – a man of previous good character – and seized computer equipment.
