A paedophile who advised other sex offenders how to abuse children has been jailed for five years and ordered to spent a further four on licence.

Jobless Warren Hilts, 40, of Mill Lane, Selsey, admitted advising other paedophiles online on how to abuse children, as well as to other sexual offences relating to children.

Hilts was sentenced at Chichester Crown Court on Friday.

The charges followed an investigation by the Paedophile On-Line Investigation Team (POLIT) of Sussex Police.

Six offences related to attempts to facilitate or arrange commission of child sex offences on line.

Nine related to distribution of indecent video and still images of children, a further five related to making of such images, and one related to possession of extreme pornography.

None of the images are of local children and no local children were involved in the other offences.

Detective Constable Chris Smith said; "Hilts had been in contact with other men on-line, advising them on ways in they could commit sexual offences against young children. We will continue to follow up any information, whether from law enforcement or from local people, about such offending.”

5 years in prison , laughable . This parasite deserves life in my opinion , do they think that serving such a measly sentence will help innocent children from being molested by him in the future ? Hope this filth hangs himself in his cell quite frankly .

You can blame her for what exactly? Don't like either the woman or her political leaning, but this is just another sick individual who would be better locked up & forgotten a bout! Harsh perhaps, I agree, but that's my view.
