Jersey man James Videgrain jailed for child images

A man who downloaded and made more than 1,300 indecent images of children has been jailed for 18 months.

James Christopher Videgrain, 29, of Jersey, pleaded guilty at the Royal Court.

Videgrain - who the court was told was "disgusted and devastated at what he'd put his family through" - also admitted downloading and making nearly 90 films featuring children.

Judge Sir Michael Birt said he must serve a jail term.

The court heard Videgrain downloaded the images over six years from January 2007 to March 2013.

Of those, 60 of the films and 25% of the images were classed in categories four to five - the most serious level.
