A Staffordshire vicar convicted of downloading indecent images of children has been sentenced to nine months in prison, suspended for two years.
 
Rev Dominic Stone, of Marchington, was found guilty in November of 16 counts of making indecent images of children at his home on 7 and 8 January 2009.
 
Six hundred images were found on his personal computer.
 
A diocese spokesman said Stone had resigned his position but will still go through a disciplinary process.
 
The judge at Stafford Crown Court ordered Stone to register as a sex offender.
