A man who attempted to import a child-like sex doll into Cheshire has been jailed for two years and eight months today in what is thought to be the first case of its kind in the UK.

Andrew Dobson, 49, of Merrivale Road, Wistaston in Crewe, was jailed after pleading guilty at Chester Crown Court to one count of importing an indecent object, two counts of making indecent images of children and one count of possessing indecent images of children

An investigation was triggered by an incident at East Midlands Airport last Septemeber when Border Force officers identified a parcel labelled as a mannequin, but which was found to contain an obscene child-like doll. This was addressed to Dobson and had been purchased from Hong Kong.

The package was immediately withheld and officers from Cheshire Constabulary were notified. Dobson was arrested at his home and following

Dobson was arrested at his home and following a search indecent images of children were found on his computer.

Detective Constable Andy Kent, of Cheshire Constabulary’s Paedophile and Cyber Investigation Unit, said:

Knowing child sex-dolls exist and are available for sex offenders to buy is sickening. For Dobson to go to great lengths to import one for his own sexual gratification shows the extent of his paraphilic interest in children.

This conviction is the first of its kind for Cheshire, cases like these are also very rare across the country, however I want to make it clear that importing a child sex-doll is a criminal offence.

Dobson should serve as an example to those who think they can also commit this crime for their own selfish needs.

Dobson admitted buying the child-like doll to use for sex and for his own sexual gratification. He also admitted downloading child abuse images and movies online.

During sentencing the Judge said he was disgusted to think that child-like sex dolls exist to be purchased on the internet and delivered anywhere in the world.
