A Suffolk man who breached a sexual harm prevention order by installing cleaning software on his laptop and using peer-to-peer file sharing to search for indecent images of children has been given a suspended prison sentence.

Sentencing Martin James, who was jailed in 2015 for downloading child porn, Judge Rupert Overbury said that if he passed an immediate prison sentence he would be released without having any treatment but he would receive treatment under the terms of a suspended sentence order.
