The 49-year-old, of St Johns Wood Road in Ryde, was required by law to register any names or profiles he created online.

Police discovered that he had been using the name ‘falcon1’ on an encrypted chat app called Wickr Me, but failed to notify the authorities of this, Isle of Wight Crown Court heard.

The court heard that he was arrested at his home address on 2 October this year, and refused to hand over his password for the app to police.

Today (1 November) he was sentenced to 16 months in prison at the same court.

Walton: A repeat child sex offender
PC Michelle Walton said:

“Wilton is a repeat child sex offender with a history dating back to 2002.

“He had absolutely no regard for what he was required to do, by law, so we could ensure that he would not continue to offend and that children were protected.

“We simply do not tolerate this, and I am pleased that today’s jail sentence reflects this.”
