Kirkby Man Jailed For 5 Years

A man from Kirkby who amassed a collection of hundreds of indecent images and videos of children has been jailed for five years.

31 year old Craig Robinson of Beacon Drive, contacted girls as young as seven years old in the Philippines via Facebook Messenger, engaging them in sexually explicit conversation, urging them to carry out sexual acts and requesting indecent images of them. He also sent indecent images of himself to them.

Upon arrest, Robinson admitted not only downloading and possessing hundreds of images and videos, but also to contacting the girls via social media and sending cash via a money transfer company to obtain the material.

His collection included 640 Category A images, the most serious category of abuse.

He had already pleaded guilty to a total of 14 charges, including making indecent images of children and causing or inciting the sexual exploitation of a child.

In addition to his five years in prison, Robinson will serve an extended licence period of an additional three years following his release. He will also be placed on the Sex Offenders’ Register indefinitely and is subject to the terms of a Sexual Harm Prevention Order.
