Jonathon Warren, a 32-year-old resident of Edensor Road, has been sentenced to life imprisonment following an investigation into his disturbing internet activities, which uncovered his sexual assault of young girls. Last October, law enforcement officials acted on information suggesting Warren’s involvement in the distribution of indecent images, leading to his arrest at his Keighley residence.

During the arrest, authorities seized Warren’s electronic devices, which subsequently revealed a shocking total of 2,086 indecent images of children. Among these disturbing materials were images and videos depicting Warren engaging in sexual acts with two girls, aged 9 and 12 at the time.

Further scrutiny by the Policing Online Investigations Team exposed evidence on Warren’s phone of him distributing indecent images to others. As a result, Warren was charged with a total of 14 offences, including seven related to the creation and possession of indecent images, and three counts of inciting a girl under the age of 13 to engage in sexual activity. In addition, he faced charges of assaulting an emergency worker.

Appearing before the Bradford Crown Court on Friday, May 19, Warren pleaded guilty to all 14 charges. In recognition of the severity of his crimes, the court sentenced him to life imprisonment, with a parole review after six years and eight months.

Expressing satisfaction with the outcome, Detective Constable Adam Flaxington stated, “I am particularly pleased that the judge has today recognised the abhorrent offending of Warren against two vulnerable girls. This sends a clear message to offenders committing these sorts of offences, and I am delighted that his victims will now have justice.”

Flaxington further commended the Digital Forensic Unit for their invaluable assistance in the case, emphasising the positive results achieved through their close collaboration.
