Alan Barclay, 86, didn’t tell visiting police officers about a computer tower he had hidden away so that the true extent of his sick collection was not known. Barclay, of Penwick Road in Falmouth, appeared at Truro Crown Court for sentence having pleaded guilty to three making indecent images of children charges and possession of an extreme pornographic image. Prosecuting the case, Ed Bailey described how in 2021 at the same court Barclay was sentenced for having child abuse images and made subject of a sexual harm prevention order for 10 years.

. He is not a well man and had a number of ailments. It is his first time in prison and he has found prison a lot harder than other people.” Sentencing Barclay, Judge Simon Carr said that chronology is crucial in this case. He said: “In April 2019, your property was searched and a large number of child abuse images were found. It took a while for the matter to be brought to court and you were sentenced in 2021. “All this time you knew full well you had a substantial store of child abuse images police hadn’t found but decided to stay quiet and not tell them.” Judge Carr said this was so the court didn’t realise the true extent of Barclay’s offending, hidden on the device he hadn’t disclosed. “I accept you say you didn’t view them between your first arrest and today but you kept them, you hid them and you lied to police.” Barclay was jailed for 21 months.
