SANDOWN TEEN CAUGHT WITH INDECENT IMAGES ON LAPTOP ADMITS GUILT

18-year-old Luke Moody will appear before the Crown Court for sentencing later this year after pleading guilty to possessing incident images of children.

Moody, of Fort Mews, was caught by the Police after uploading a variety of photos and videos to the website Discord.

His IP address was traced which led officers to his doorstep on 22nd January 2021, where he was arrested and his computer equipment – including a laptop – was seized.

Liz Miller, prosecuting, detailed to the court that a total of 6x still and 9x moving Category A files were found on the device, alongside 5x still and 7x moving Category B files and 1x moving Category C file, as well as 3 prohibited images.

The case is too serious for Magistrates to deal with and therefore the case has been sent to the Crown Court on 8th March.

Moody has been granted bail but has been ordered to sign the Sex Offenders Register.

UPDATE MARCH 2022 – Appearing at the Isle of Wight Crown Court, Luke Moody was placed on the Sex Offenders Register for a period of 5 years, as well as being made subject to a 5-year Sexual Harm Protection Order. He was also barred from working with children and ordered to complete a 3-year community order with 275 hours of unpaid work and a £95 surcharge atttached.

Furthermore, Moody must attend a Sexual Offending Programme as part of his community order.

and his life is over, before it has even begun – living with the tag of sex offender forever, is going to be like dragging a concrete weight tied to him with heavy anchor chains.

Discord is not a website. It’s a messaging app and streaming platform for gamers.
