Adam Barker, 44, was quizzed by cops over the allegations in 2004 and subsequently went into hiding before eventually handing himself in to authorities in July (12).

He pleaded guilty to 20 charges, relating to indecent images of children found on his computer, last month (Sep12), and on Friday (19Oct12) he appeared at Isleworth Crown Court in London to hear his sentence.

Judge Rosa Dean told Barker his offending "contributed to the degradation and continuing abuse of children" and handed him a one-year jail term.

Barker was also added to the Sex Offenders Register for 10 years and has been banned from working with youngsters in the future.
