A man sentenced earlier this year for possession of child pornography and coercing young girls to send him sexually graphic images has been ordered not to take part in a computer programming course.

Matthew Horan (26), of St John's Crescent, Clondalkin, Dublin, was sentenced in January to nine and a half years, with the final two and a half suspended. Judge Martin Nolan ordered a probation report on that date into what services the prison service could provide to reform Horan.

Judge Nolan ordered Horan not be allowed to enter the course as outlined in the probation report.
