  • Breach of a SHPO
  • Three counts of possessing indecent photographs of a child

The court heard that Morris breached his SHPO on 26 December, when Morris’s offending was uncovered following proactive work via an unannounced visit by officers from the Constabulary’s Management of Sexual and Violent Offenders (MOSOVO) team.

Officers located a laptop on the sofa which was not disclosed to officers and arrested Morris and seized the laptop. Officer carried out a further search and located hard drive and further computer storage.

When asked if he had anything illegal on the hard drive Morris answered yes.

Examinations were carried out on the devices and located over 100 indecent images.

Detective Constable Lyndsey Mitchell the investigating officer from the MOSOVO team said: “Morris was fully aware of the terms of the sexual harm prevention order imposed against him when he breached it with the devices found at his home.  

“Upon examining those devices, we located further offending via indecent images which he confessed to during the visit.

“We work hard to monitor and manage people who are subject to such orders.

“Like in this case, we will find out if they breach the terms of these preventative orders and we will do all we can to ensure they are held accountable for their offending.”
