Former British Police Officer receives two year prison sentence on pornography charges

A former British Police investigator was sentenced to two years and four months imprisonment after being found guilty of attempting to send photos of his genitals to a 13-year-old girl while on holiday in Malta.

Mark Collins, a 58-year-old father of two, admitted the charges against him in a case that took place in November 2019.

Collins thought he was sending the photos to a girl when in fact he was communicating with a police officer who was investigating him.

From the British Police investigation it turned out that he sent the photos on the Kik Messenger app and commented on her physical development.

Following his arrest Collins was suspended from the Police Force where he served for 30 years and has now been sentenced to a prison term after admitting to the charges.
