POLICE have released a picture of a convicted paedophile they caught downloading child abuse videos from the internet while he was being supervised by them.
As the police took his photo before public release, the sick paedophile is reported to have said ‘ Say Cheese’ as the cocky sex offender had his mugshot.
Martin Cambridge, 43, continued trawling the web after he escaped going to prison following his conviction in 2017 for possessing “a great number of indecent images”.
Cambridge, of Heol y Dreflan, Caerphilly, South Wales pleaded guilty to making six category A, four category B and two category C images.
Judge Michael Fitton QC told Cambridge: “You have an interest, perhaps obsession, with children. You said it is maybe a morbid curiosity. That’s nonsense. You have a dreadful urge to look at such images again and again.”
He jailed him for eight months.
The defendant was ordered to register as a sex offender for 10 years and made the subject of an SHPO until 2031.
Cambridge must also pay a victim surcharge upon his release from prison and the court ordered the forfeiture and destruction of the electronic devices used to access the indecent images.
