Pervert, 58, caught importing eight illegal child-size sex dolls into UK

A paedophile has been jailed after being caught importing eight child-like sex dolls.

Mark Carter, 58, was caught after Border Force officials at West Midlands Airport intercepted a package containing one of the creepy dolls on its way to his address.

The parcel was withheld and the discovery was reported to police who carried out a raid on Carter’s home.

During the bust, officers found eight dolls along with computers containing child abuse images, StokeonTrentLive reports.

Now the defendant has been sentenced to 12 months in prison after pleading guilty to six charges of importing obscene articles.

He also admitted three counts of making indecent images of children, one of possessing indecent images of children and one of possessing prohibited images of children.

Chester Crown Court heard the investigation got underway on October 17, 2018, before Carter's home in Bosley, near Congleton, was then raided.

Speaking after the case Detective Constable Dave Walton, from Cheshire’s Online Child Abuse Investigation Team, said: "Whilst this is an unusual crime, it emphasises that Cheshire Police are committed to tacking those in society whose behaviour towards children is wholly unacceptable.

"The purchase of so many dolls indicates that Carter was not content with his initial purchases and his behaviour was escalating and he was becoming more specific in satisfying his needs.

Piers for PM? Have your say!

The Daily Star has projected an image of Piers Morgan onto the Houses of Parliament – and we’re asking you are we ready for #PMFORPM?

Last week the Daily Star jokingly asked the question on nobody’s lips: Would PM be a better PM than our current PM?

And it seems we may have inadvertently unleashed a monster. Shy and retiring Piers – no stranger to holding our politicians to account on Good Morning Britain – leapt on the idea.

His odds were slashed from 500/1 to just 20/1 in a single day.

"Thankfully, as a result of the partnership work between ourselves and the Border Force, we have now been able to bring him to justice.

"I hope that Carter’s conviction acts as a warning to other offenders and sends a clear message that importing items such as these is a criminal offence and action will be taken."

Carter was also ordered to sign the sex offenders register for 10 years and handed a 10-year sexual harm prevention order.

Cheshire Police and Crime Commissioner David Keane said: "Crimes of this nature are particularly concerning and it’s pleasing to see the partnership work that is taking place to bring those involved to justice.

"This case highlights some of the disturbing work that our officers have to deal with and I would like to thank all of the officers in Online Child Abuse Investigation Team for their dedication in helping to protect young people in Cheshire."
