A Haverhill man caught with hundreds of indecent images of children
has been spared a prison sentence.

belonging to him when police visited his home last October.
Johnson, of Chestnut Close, Haverhill, pleaded guilty to four offences of
making indecent images of children.
On Thursday at Ipswich Crown Court, Johnson was given a three
year community order with a requirement to remain under Probation
Service supervision for three years.
Judge Peter Jacobs also ordered Johnson to sign on the sexual offences
register for five years and take part in an Internet Sex Offender Treatment
Johnson’s arrest came during an operation co-ordinated by the National
Crime Agency in which homes were raided across five counties.
