A 63-year-old man was caught with sexually explicit images of children on his laptop after a Facebook “inappropriate image” alert was triggered, a court has heard.

Aidan Scanlon told gardaí he did not know he had the illegal images on his laptop in August 2016. Sentencing him yesterday, Judge Martin Nolan suspended in full a prison term of one year, saying he was “probably unlikely to reoffend”.
