A Hatfield man was given a suspended sentence today after pleading guilty to three counts of taking an indecent photo of a child.

Kevyn Swaryczeski, of Stanley Drive in Hatfield, was sentenced to six months’ imprisonment, suspended for two years, at Luton Crown Court today (December 14).

Prior to the sentencing, he had been directed not to use any software that facilitates the deletion of internet history, nor to view or download internet pornography.
