A man from Lewisham has been convicted of making indecent images of children for the second time.

Aron Mortlock, aged 37, from Catford, pleaded guilty at Bromley Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday, February 12 and sentenced at Woolwich Crown Court yesterday (Wednesday, March 4).

He was charged with three counts of making an indecent image of a child, distributing an indecent image, and attempting to arrange or facilitate a child sex offence.  He will remain on the sex offenders’ register for life.

He was caught after police received intelligence that a ‘category A’ indecent video had been uploaded to the internet.  An investigation found it had been uploaded by Mortlock, who had been convicted of making indecent images of children in May 2018.

Mortlock was arrested on Tuesday, February 11, after his home was searched under warrant.  Officers said they seized a phone and hard drive containing ‘a large amount of indecent images’.

Detective Constable Katie Slee, from the Met’s south east safeguarding unit, said: “Mortlock is a repeat offender and despite being under supervision continued to download horrific images of children.

“He has never shown any remorse for his behaviour and did all he could to stop police gaining access to the items seized from his address.

“We are pleased he is now behind bars and will have no access to any devices which allow him to facilitate further crimes.”
