'Charity work hid' Black Country man's child sex crimes


A Black Country IT worker who collected 196,000 indecent images of children has been jailed for two years.

Andrew Walder, a 42-year-old father-of-one, pleaded guilty to 13 charges of making and possessing indecent images and films of children from 2005.

Officers found the material when they raided his home in Mill Street, Brierley Hill, in September 2010.

Wolverhampton Crown Court heard Walder had used his charity work and church attendance to mask sexual depravity.

He was told that his name would remain on the sex offenders register for an unlimited period of time.

In sentencing him at Wolverhampton Crown Court, Judge John Wait said: "You have done a lot of good work for charity and through the church, but that concealed a deep interest in the sexual depravity of children."
