Child porn man jailed after Australia police tip-off
A Teesside man has been jailed for possessing indecent images of children after a tip-off from Australian police.
David Flynn posed as a teenager in an internet chatroom and tried to groom a 13-year-old girl, who turned out to be an officer in Brisbane.
Cleveland Police then raided his home and found the images on two computers.
Flynn pleaded guilty to 17 charges, which included making indecent images of children and attempting to incite a child to engage in sexual activity.
The 27-year-old, of Otterburn Way, Billingham, was jailed for 15 months and ordered to register as a sex offender for 10 years.
He was also banned for life from unsupervised contact with children under 18.
