Submission + - 12 years in jail for man in 'vile' porn plot (independent.co.uk)

An anonymous reader writes: Am update on a previous Slashdot story. http://yro.slashdot.org/story/10/08/06/150216/Child-Porn-As-a-Weapon The accused has been sentanced to 12 years.

A handyman who ruined a school caretaker's life by planting child pornography on his computer was jailed for 12 years today. He was convicted of perverting the course of justice and two counts of possessing indecent images of children at the Old Bailey. Judge David Paget told him: "What you did to a decent and honest man was in my view wicked. "It is difficult to imagine a more cunning, deceitful or warped course of conduct than yours in this case, or a more malicious one." The court heard how he sent police a CD containing indecent images of children saying they came from Mr Thompson's laptop. Hundreds more pictures were later found on the computer and the caretaker was arrested in October 2006. He told police he had been set up by colleagues who did not like him but it was eight months before he was told no further action would be taken.
