Child porn accountant jailed

Kingston accountant gets six months and will be on sex offenders' register for ten years

An accountant from Kingston has been jailed for downloading almost 800
pornographic pictures of children.

Andrew Lock, 52, of Cromwell Road, had already been placed on the sex
offenders’ register in 2004 after downloading four indecent images of children,
the
Wimbledon Guardian reported.

Lock was then caught downloading images from a child pornography site in
2006.

Nine images found on his computer were classified as ‘type four’, the second
most serious, said detective constable Richard Morgan, or the Met Police’s
paedophile unit.

‘The first time he did the typical Gary Glitter thing, took his laptop to be
repaired and indecent images were found,’ Morgan said.

‘He didn’t learn his lesson, his offending escalated and we’re pleased with
the sentence, which does send out the message that we will actively target
anyone found downloading this type of material.’

Lock was sentenced to six months imprisonment, and will be on the sex
offenders’ register for 10 years.
