A 45-YEAR-OLD man, who moved to Lochgelly after being sentenced for downloading thousands of indecent images of children, has breached a court order just weeks after it was imposed.

Tadeusz Checinski committed the original offences when he was living in Carlisle but has now moved to Fife.

On July 3 he had a Sexual Harm Prevention Order imposed at the North and West Cumbria Magistrates Court.

Now Checinski, of High Street, Lochgelly, has appeared from custody at Dunfermline Sheriff Court.

He admitted that on September 8 he breached the conditions of the court order by having internet cleaning software and he used internet enable devices.

Police raided his Carlisle home in September last year. His laptop was seized and it was found that he had downloaded almost 4,000 illegal images of children.

Carlisle Crown Court was told Checinski had led an “extremely isolated existence” since moving to the UK from his native Poland.

He was given a suspended jail sentence, unpaid work and placed on the Sexual Harm Prevention Order for 10 years.

Checinski will be sentenced for latest offence in Dunfermline on October 12.

Sheriff Alison McKay called for reports and bail was granted.

Checinski appeared in court just three days after Irish paedophile Anthony Luckwill was jailed there for a similar offence.

He fled his native Dublin after being attacked and planned to start a new life in Inverkeithing but breached his court owner when he was found in possession of a mobile phone and iPod.
