FORMER CANDIDATE PLEADS GUILTY TO CHILD PORN CHARGES

Steven Cornwell, the UKIP candidate for Milton Keynes South West in the 2005 general election, has been sentenced to a three-month jail term, suspended for a year, at Aylesbury Crown Court following a child pornography conviction.

The 46-year from Monkston, Bucks, pleaded guilty to six charges of manufacturing indecent images of children, one charge of possessing them and one count of possessing a further 1,550 other indecent images between January 2003 and April 2005. Mr Cornwell admitted to acquiring some of the 127 level 1 to 4 pictures through chat rooms and file sharing but denied purchasing any by credit card.

In addition, the father of two and secretary of the Milton Keynes and Borders Counties Youth Football League was ordered to pay ₤1,500 in legal costs over a six-month period and surrender his computer equipment, as reported by the Milton Keynes Citizen on 26 September.
