A doctor was struck off the medical register of practising clinicians after he was convicted for Net-related kiddie porn crimes. According to the General Medical Council, the "offences for which he was convicted in December 1988 are so abhorrent that we consider the he is totally unfit to retain the privilege of registration." Former doctor Robert Arwel Jones, 34, already had a history of sexual offences including indecent exposure, it was revealed. He was convicted at Chester Crown Court and sentenced to four months in prison for possessing 5,000 pornographic images -- including 1,200 of children -- that he'd downloaded from the Net. Jones had even digitally altered some of the pictures to include his naked body overlaid next to images of children. Striking him from the register, the GMC concluded that Jones could not be trusted to continue practising as a doctor. Failure to take such action would undermine the public's trust in the medical profession, the professional misconduct committee ruled. ® The Register's full coverage on Child Pornography and The Web
