Man from Tilbury jailed after admitting to thousands of indecent images and videos of children

A man from Tilbury has been jailed for 10 years after admitting to possessing more than 3,500 indecent images and more than 600 indecent videos of children including some of him abusing children himself.

Police carried out a search of an address in Seabrook Rise, Grays, on Saturday, 13 January 2018 following information the internet connection there had been used to upload indecent images.

During the search officers arrested 23-year-old Joshua Gould and seized a mobile phone, computer and hard drive.

Around 3,500 indecent images of children including more than 800 of the most serious category and more than 100 images of extreme pornography were found on the devices.

More than 600 videos, including nearly 200 of the most serious category were also found.

Investigating officer Detective Sergeant Kennedy Emson said: “Joshua Gould is dangerous sexual predator who preyed on the vulnerability of young children for his own gratification.”

“His crimes are utterly abhorrent and could have a long lasting effect on his victims.”

“I want to praise the victims and their families for their strength and support throughout the investigation.”

“Gould did at least admit his crimes meaning they did not have to re-live the ordeal through a trial.”

“I hope the victims and their families will now be able to move forward and will take some solace that Gould faces a significant time behind bars.”

Gould, of Stevenson Avenue, Tilbury, was charged in October last year and appeared at Basildon Crown Court earlier this month.

He pleaded guilty to the attempted rape of a child under 13, four counts of sexual of a girl under 13, taking indecent photographs of a child, possession of indecent images, and possession of extreme pornography.

Gould has been sentenced to 10 years in prison with a further eight on licence and made subject to an indefinite Sexual Harm Prevention Order.
