A MAN blamed his ex-girlfriend’s son after his stash of indecent images of children was found on her computer.

Robert Trafford’s former partner took her computer to Cash Generator in Oxford last year to unlock the password Trafford had left on it.

But staff found sexual photographs of children and went to the police who found more than 6,000 indecent images.

Trafford admitted nine counts of possessing indecent images of children between March 2012 and March last year and was jailed for 18 months at Oxford Crown Court last Wednesday.

The 35-year-old, formerly of Nightingale Avenue in Greater Leys, had blamed the images on his partner’s son before he came clean to police, the court heard.

William Eaglestone, prosecuting, said Trafford had more than 6,000 indecent images organised into different folders — 225 of which were in the highest category.

Lucy Tapper, defending, said Trafford had accepted he had a problem and wanted help.

Judge Peter Ross, sentencing, told Trafford: “At this very moment – in order to feed the perverted sexual desires of people like you – there are children around the world being abused in the manner depicted in the images you sought.”

Trafford was also ordered to sign the sex offenders’ register and banned from accessing the internet on devices without restrictive software installed.
