A Dryslwyn man who disobeyed a court order has been jailed today 'as a short sharp shock.'

Daniel Keith Thompson, 28, had been sentenced to a community order in November, 2017, for child pornography offences.

Helen Randall, prosecuting, told Swansea crown court that the sentencing judge made Thompson the subject of a Sexual Harm Prevention Order which restricted his use of the Internet.

In particular, said Miss Randall, Thompson had been banned from installing or using "peer to peer" software which enabled computer users to directly exchange images with each other.

But during a routine visit by a police officer it was discovered that Thomson had installed such software to a new laptop and used it on 42 occasions.

That included, added Miss Randall, the very morning the police turned up.

And further examination of the computer unearthed three indecent images of children, all of them in the least serious category C.

Thompson, of Llain Felindre, was jailed for 28 days after Judge David Hale told him he needed a "short sharp shock" to help him understand that court orders had to be complied with.

Thompson also saw his new computer confiscated and was ordered to pay a court surcharge of £115.

He told Thompson, "You knew very well that you were not supposed to download peer to peer software.

"You have to realise that these court orders have teeth."

Judge Hale also extended the SHPO by an additional two years.

Thompson had admitted breaching the original order and possessing child pornography.
