Suspended sentence for man

Have your say

A MAN from Needham Market has been given a suspended sentence for breaching a court order.

Christopher Fuller, of Jackson Way, was convicted in November 2005 of being in possession of, and making, indecent images of children. At the time an order was made placing restrictions on his use of the internet and cameras.

Ipswich Crown Court heard last Thursday that Fuller was found last year to be in possession of a computer which breached the terms of the order.

Fuller, 58, admitted two breaches of the order and was handed a six-month prison sentence suspended for 18 months. He will remain under supervision for 18 months and has been prohibited from unsupervised contact with children aged under 16.

Sentencing Fuller, Judge Rupert Overbury warned him that further breaches of the order would result in an immediate jail term despite a threat made to commit suicide if he was sent to prison. Judge Overbury said the two breaches of the Sexual Offences Prevention Order had been ‘deliberate’ but added that the terms of the order would not have been so restrictive if made today.
