Man (54) pleads guilty to making indecent images of children and possessing extreme pornography

On Tuesday 17th October, a 54 year old man from the Belfast area pled guilty to four offences at Laganside Crown Court.

Aaron Ravel pled guilty to making indecent images of children and possessing extreme pornography.

Detective Inspector Richard Vasey from The Police Service of Northern Ireland’s Child Internet Protection Team said: “Following a search of Ravel’s property a number of electronic devices were seized for forensic examination. These devices contained illegal images of children.

“Our message is clear, if a person is downloading, viewing or making indecent images of children, you are leaving a digital footprint and we are actively looking for you. We will continue to do everything in our power to keep children safe.

“These searches are part of the continuing proactive work by the Police Service of Northern Ireland’s Child Internet Protection Team, a dedicated unit staffed with officers trained specifically to deal with online offending.

“We use specialist technology to detect digital devices, to make it difficult for offenders to hide evidence from the police.

“We will continue proactively targeting those people in our community who contribute to this cycle of abuse and I would encourage anyone with concerns or information to get in contact us on 101 or 999 in an emergency. We will act on the information we receive.”
