This is the face of paedophile Martyn Rodger, who tried to hide a new Chromebook from detectives just weeks after being given a court order requiring him to register digital devices with the police.

The 26-year-old was spared an immediate prison sentence last August for looking at indecent images of children.

But the judge imposed a sexual harm prevention order aimed at limiting his access to the internet and requiring him to register new digital devices with the police.

He breached the order within barely a month of its imposition. Rodger, whose financial affairs are managed by social services, asked for the money to buy a new laptop.

His social worker informed the police, who visited the man’s Witney home on September 16 when the device still hadn’t been logged with them.

Rodger initially lied, saying he had no new computer. When the device was found beneath his mattress he changed his story, claiming that he planned to register it the following day.

Jailing him for 18 months at Oxford Crown Court last week, Judge Maria Lamb told Rodger, of Eastfield Road, Witney: “I am quite satisfied you knew perfectly well you should have notified [the police of] the existence of that Chromebook.”

Thames Valley Police has now released Rodger’s mugshot.

Rodger remains a sex offender and subject to the sexual harm prevention order imposed last summer.
