Man jailed for possessing indecent images of children
A 29-year-old man has been sentenced after being convicted of offences in connection with child abuse images.
Jayce Simpson was arrested in Jedburgh on 24 February 2021 following a police investigation. He pleaded guilty at Jedburgh Sheriff Court on 9 November, 2021.
On 20 December, he was sentenced to two years in prison.
Detective Inspector Adrian Ure, National Child Abuse Investigation Unit, Police Scotland said: “Simpson demonstrated a complete and utter contempt for the child victims depicted in the images he was viewing.
"He also thought his behaviour would go undetected, thinking the internet would provide him with anonymity. However, he was found and is now facing a custodial sentence for his actions.
"Any form of child sexual abuse is a serious criminal offence and remains a high priority for Police Scotland. If anyone has any concerns about a child being at risk of abuse, or a potential victim, please contact police immediately."
