Kids entertainer’s girlfriend ‘found indecent images of children on his tablet’

A KIDS entertainer’s girlfriend found indecent images of children on his tablet, a court heard.

She dumped Samuel Stamp-Dod, 46, and told him to turn himself in.

Cops then found 216 category A images (the most serious), 304 at ­category B and 1,030 at category C on his devices.

The balloon artist, of Ipswich, admitted making indecent images of children and possessing an extreme pornographic image in January 2019.

Stamp-Dod, former chairman of a small business association, got eight months in jail suspended at the town’s crown court.

Judge Emma Peters told him that “those who view indecent images fuel child abuse.”

She added: “This is why you should hang your head in shame. It has an enormous and devastating impact on the lives of children.”

Stamp-Dod must also sign the sex offenders’ register for ten years and was made subject to a ten-year Sexual Harm Prevention Order.

David Stewart, defending, said Stamp-Dod had already engaged with child protection charity the Lucy Faithfull Foundation and helpline Stop It Now.

He added: “He makes no attempt to minimise or justify his actions.”
