Cambridgeshire police tracked Shaun Nash down in September using his Internet provider address after information was received from the Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre (CEOP).

Officers found more than 1,000 indecent images on his computer including 12 at level five – the most severe – as well as 159 at level four, 50 at level three, 321 at level two and 455 at level one.

Nash also groomed young boys online in chat rooms and formed a relationship with a 14-year-old boy, from Hampshire, before asking him to send him indecent pictures.

In police interview, Nash admitted all the offences and blamed his behaviour on a traumatic experience in his life at the age of 13.

DC Jo Crisall said: “Nash has been committing these crimes since he was 16 when, he was given a two-year suspended sentence in 1985.

“We think there could be further victims and the sentence he has now received reflects the gravity of his offences.

“Nash’s crimes have caused trauma and lasting consequences for his victims and their families and I hope they find some comfort by the fact justice has been served.”

Andy Baker, deputy chief executive at CEOP said: “Another dangerous child sex offender is now behind bars where he cannot do any more harm to our children. The police, the wider law enforcement community and partners will continue to work together to target offenders who sexually abuse children and trade in images of child sexual abuse. Those partners include Internet service providers around the world and we are working together closer than ever before.

“Nash’s arrest came about as a result of information received at the Centre from an international partner about images being uploaded online. This conviction demonstrates once again that if you are trading in these sickening images you will be sought, found and punished; however much you try to hide your crimes. CEOP has an extensive network of worldwide partners working with us to help make the Internet a safer place for children and to catch those who abuse children and bring them to justice.”

Nash, of Park Lane, Godmanchester, was jailed for four years in 1994 for four offences in West Yorkshire relating to four boys aged between 10 and 14.

The 43-year-old was jailed again today (Friday) for a further 14 offences during 2011 and 2012 including three counts of taking indecent photographs of a child, three counts of possessing indecent photographs of a child and two counts of distributing indecent photographs of a child.

He was also convicted of four counts of causing or inciting a child to engage in sexual activity and two counts of publishing an obscene article.

Nash was jailed for four years and eight months at Peterborough Crown Court.

CUB SCOUT LEADER JAILED FOR 3 YEARS FOR ABUSING YOUNG BOY

A NEW Haw cub scout leader who sexually abused a young boy and collected indecent images of children has been jailed for three years.

Daniel Bisacre, 32, from Knaphill, cornered the boy, who he met through the scout movement, and performed an indecent act on him in two separate incidents.

Bisacre, who was found guilty of two counts of sexual activity with a child by Guildford Crown Court on November 14, was a former leader of the 2nd New Haw Scout Group.

The boy joined the cub scout movement in a different group to the one run by the defendant.

At his sentencing on Friday, Judge Christopher Critchlow said: “As a scout leader you of course were trusted by parents of the boys in your charge, whether on a trip somewhere or on a scout camp. With your actions you breached that trust.”

The court heard how Bisacre, of Tringham Close, had also been found guilty of child pornography charges in September 2011, after more than 800 indecent images of young boys were found on his computer.

Mr Critchlow added: “I hope while you are in custody that you take the opportunity to address your behaviour. I certainly hope that there won’t be any further offending of this nature.”

In mitigation, Amanda Hamilton, defending, said Bisacre had lost everything following his convictions and had been verbally abused by other prison inmates who heard about the nature of his crimes.

“Despite the publicity of this case, his family has continued to have positive contact with the scouts, including the families of of boy scouts that he looked after,” she said.

“It goes to show how he was viewed by people. Nothing negative has come from anybody towards him and his family.”

Mr Critchlow said: “Before you committed these offences you were a man of good character. You are now 32 and the have lost that good character and through this offence you have lost a great deal.

“You have lost your job, your pension and your involvement with the scouts.”

Bisacre was given a 27-month prison sentence for the two counts of sexual activity with a child and a consecutive nine-month sentence for the possession of indecent images.
