A UK company director has been jailed for three months after being convicted of downloading kiddie porn from the Net.

David Mould, 45, technical director of Sussex-based Network Technology plc, was also fined £4000 and will be put on the sex offenders' register.

According to the local newspaper, The Argus, Mould was arrested after police found the background 'wallpaper' image of a ten-year-old boy on his PC at home.

Police reported that a number of other images had been deleted before they arrested Mould.

Sentencing Mould, Judge Guy Anthony told Lewes Crown Court: "You were found to have created wallpaper for your computer from an image you got from a paedophile Internet site which you admitted you had visited over a number of years.

"I have come to the conclusion that only an immediate custodial sentence is appropriate," he said.

Alan Large of Network Technology confirmed that Mould was technical director at the company. He declined to comment further. ®
