Man sentenced for possession of extreme pornographic images


Frederick Scappaticci, 72, was today (Wednesday 5 December) sentenced to three months’ imprisonment, suspended for 12 months, for possession of extreme pornographic images, after pleading guilty at Westminster Magistrates’ Court.
 
He was convicted after material was seized as part of Operation Kenova.
 
Chief Constable Jon Boutcher, who leads the investigation for Operation Kenova, said: “Today’s conviction came about as a result of material recovered during a search conducted by the Kenova team. This result is an indication that wherever criminal behaviour is identified during my investigation, evidence will be presented for the purposes of prosecution.
 
“Operation Kenova continues to recover evidence in relation to our core terms of reference and as and when it is appropriate to speak further, I will do so.
 
“I would encourage anyone who might be able to assist with this important inquiry to please contact my team via the details on the Kenova website, or by calling Crimestoppers.”
