A 43-year-old man has been jailed for nine years after admitting 22 charges relating to the sexual abuse of a child and possession of indecent images of children.

David Matthew Horne, of Warren Bank, Milton Keynes, admitted 18 charges of sexual abuse on one victim and four counts relating to making, possessing and distributing indecent images of children. He was sentenced at Aylesbury Crown Court on Tuesday, 08 May 2012.

Thames Valley Police's Paedophile Online Investigation Team (POLIT) executed a warrant at Horne's home address in October 2011 following information received from another police force.

Horne's computers were seized and when they were examined, a child victim was identified. When the victim was interviewed, she disclosed how she had been abused by Horne over a four-year period from the age of 13.
