Judge labels Brian Charlton, a former finance director of Bradford Cathedral Centre, an 'incurable paedophile'

THE former finance director of the Bradford Cathedral Centre has escaped a prison sentence for the second time after he was caught downloading "disgusting" child porn images and sharing them with others.
On the day he was charged in June last year Brian Charlton, 70, suffered severe physical and mental injuries after he fell from a Bradford car park and yesterday he arrived at the city's crown court in a wheelchair.
Back in September 2008, Charlton was given a 20-week suspended jail sentence for possessing indecent images of youngsters and the court heard on that occasion that three days before his trial was due to start he had been badly injured when he fell into Chellow Dene quarry.




Charlton, of Leyside Drive, Allerton, Bradford, admitted charges of distributing indecent images of children, possessing indecent images of children and possession of extreme pornography after police acting on information executed a search at his home in February last year.
Judge Jonathan Rose heard that file-sharing software had been found on Charlton's computer equipment and subsequent analysis of a laptop and an external hard drive revealed 200 indecent images and almost 150 videos.
The court heard yesterday that the some of the children in the images were as young as three years old.
Barrister Gerald Hendron, for Charlton, conceded that the latest offending was extremely serious, but he highlighted the real difficulties that would be created if his client was sent into a prison environment.
He said Charlton was effectively "wheelchair-bound" and required full-time care at home from his wife.
