A Rothwell man has been put on the sex offender register after a police investigation into sick images of children.

James Bugg was found guilty of three charges of making indecent images of children – a legal term for actions such as viewing or downloading – after a trial last month.

He had denied the charges but was convicted by a jury at Northampton Crown Court.

Yesterday (Monday) Bugg, of Nunnery Avenue, returned to the same court where he was sentenced to a 12-month community order with 30 days of rehabilitation activities.

Bugg will be on the sex offender register for five years and subject to a five-year sexual harm prevention order.
