Ryan Evans sentenced for possessing indecent images and videos of children
Police Scotland acknowledges the sentencing of Ryan Evans yesterday (Thursday, 4 February, 2021) for offences relating to the possession of indecent images and videos of children.
The 26-year-old was sentenced at Falkirk Sheriff Court to 20 months in prison.
Detective Inspector Adrian Ure, of Police Scotland’s National Child Abuse Investigation Unit, said: “Evans’ online behaviour showed complete disregard for the child victims depicted in the videos and images he was viewing.
“He believed that the internet would provide anonymity and allow him to undertake his offending undetected, however, as a result of our investigation, he will now rightly face the consequences of his actions.
“Any form of online child sexual abuse is a serious criminal offence and is a priority for Police Scotland. We encourage anyone with concerns about a child at risk of abuse, or a potential victim, to contact police immediately on 101 or 999 if it is an emergency.”
