Martyn Smith got a 32-week [just over 7 months] suspended jail sentence for his crime. He'd earlier been arrested and remanded in custory:

The 'Daily Telegraph' article on the case refers to Smith being 'highly regarded' during his 19-year career as a BBC producer:

Yet people distributing a few leaflets (based on facts in the police files), in the hope of finding out what happened to a missing child are the ones branded 'sickos' - crazy world.
