Thu, 22 Aug 2013

Stephen Gandy, 44, has been charged with nine counts of making and possessing pornographic images of children while his wife, Annette Storey, 38, has been charged with one count of sexual assault. 
A search of the couples home found indecent images of children on the hard drive of a computer and on memory sticks. There were also extreme images on VHS cassettes. 
Andrew Baker, defending Storey, said that she was easily led and did not present a risk on her own. 
Gandy was handed a four-year jail sentence with a further six years on license. Storey was given a 36-month community supervision order and ordered not to come into contact with children under the age of 18.
