Police are warning those who download and share indecent images of children and extreme pornography using the internet should be aware that their online activities will be ‘picked up’ by the authorities and they will be brought to justice. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

The warning comes after a 24-year-old man received a 12-month prison sentence for making and possessing indecent images of children. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Daniel Marshall from Deeside was also sentenced for possessing extreme pornography images and videos which he distributed to his ‘associates’ using the instant messaging app Whatsapp. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Marshall received a 12-month prison sentence at  Mold Crown Court today, June 8. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Senior Investigating Officer Detective Chief Inspector Alun Oldfield at North Wales Police said;

We welcome the sentence and hope it will reinforce our commitment to eradicate all forms of child abuse. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Daniel Marshall had distributed a large number of indecent images and videos to a number of his associates using the Whatsapp messaging system. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

People who use social media in general should be mindful of communicating with others whom they do not know and very careful of the personal data, information and images they share. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

North Wales Police work closely with partner agencies and are proactive in the apprehension and prosecution of those who are involved in all forms of child abuse. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Those who trade in indecent images should be aware their online activities will be ‘picked up’ by the authorities and they will be brought to justice. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Each and every time an image is taken, uploaded or viewed a child is abused and those who commit such vile acts must learn there are victims behind each and every image. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

If you have concerns about anyone who may be in possession of indecent images of children contact North Wales Police on 101 or alternatively via Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​
