Jason Cowie, 45, of Oxford Crescent, was found guilty of five counts of making indecent photographs of children, one count of distributing similar images and sexual activity with no penetration.

He was also placed on the sex offenders register for life and given a 10 year Sexual Harm Prevention Order.

A Colchester man who broke into a woman’s house and sexually assaulted her was jailed for three-and-a-half years.

The mother who was in bed with her young daughter woke to find Charlie Bowyer, 25, on top of her naked.

When she screamed and tried to get away he pinned her down by her wrist and shoulder. Bowyer had taken more cocaine than he had ever used before and was completely shocked and ashamed of what he had done to his victim. When police arrested him they found him with a hose around his neck and told the officers ‘Kill me. Kill me.’
