Metropolitan Police Sergeant found with 'disgusting' child porn walks free

Post by Daisy on Tue Aug 02, 2011 8:49 pm

How can anyone believe in the justice system when we're seeing this kind of outcome on a regular basis, it's beyond me. And on the very same day that the chap that threw the foam pie at Murdoch gets six weeks jail!

A policeman caught with a child porn stash after bragging about it online has been spared jail.


The Metropolitan Police sergeant was trapped in an online sting by an Australian officer, but walked free from court yesterday.


Antony Vodden, 46, kept 110 vile images on his home PC, including 12 at the second highest level of severity.

And then we get Sharon Shoesmith about to get £1million compensation for allowing Baby P to die.

There is no reference that I can find in the article as to whether Antony Vodden remains a Met Police Officer.

Of course, his pension is safe as he wasn't jailed for over 5 years.

It gets worse. From the Sun

"A COP caught with "disgusting" child porn on his computer walked free from a court yesterday......

Vodden, of Uxbridge, North West London, had previously been found guilty of making indecent images of children.

He was given a nine-month prison sentence, suspended for 15 months, and ordered to sign the Sex Offenders Register.

He has also been dismissed from the Metropolitan Police after 24 years.

In mitigation, defence counsel Guy Ladenburg said Vodden had been abused as a child.

But the judge told Vodden: "You should have realised, if it happened to you, what effect it has. To look at children being abused is beyond my comprehension."

So Vodden had previously been found guilty of making indecent images of children yet remained with the Met Police after that and has only been dismissed after this further offence. What on earth is the world coming to!

If it's in The Sun it must be true

Gillyspot, the way that I read this is that there was only one offence. He was earlier found guilty of having child porn on his computer and appeared in court again to be sentenced. In other words, he wasn't sentenced at the same time as he was found guilty.
