A Rotherham man who was found to have indecent images of children on his phone has been jailed.
Duy Chong Khuu, 52, of Wellgate, Rotherham, was interviewed after he was found to have uploaded an indecent video of a child on his Facebook account.
When officers seized his phone and examined it, two Category A and two Category C images were found on his device, and Khuu was charged with distributing an indecent image of a child.
Khuu pleaded guilty to the offences, and at Sheffield Crown Court on Thursday (11 August 2022), was sentenced to 22 months in prison. He was also ordered to sign the sex offenders register for ten years.
South Yorkshire Police Investigation Officer Julie Towers, who led the investigation said: “This is a fantastic result and Khuu is now behind bars because of sharing a harrowing video of a child and keeping indecent images on his phone.
“This result shows how committed South Yorkshire Police is as a force to stopping the possession and distribution of indecent images. The work we do also protects children from sexual abuse and those who seek to do them harm.
“We work closely with our partner agencies and would like to thank them for their assistance throughout this investigation, and if you have experienced any form of sexual abuse, or know of a child being abused, please come forward and report this, we are here and ready to help.”
