Dorset Police Praised After Paedophile Jailed


9:13am 30th January 2014

The Crown Prosecution service have praised a specialist unit of Dorset Police for helping them get a paedophile jailed for five years.

The Dorset Police Paedophile On-Line Investigation team worked with US Homeland Security Investigations in London, the National Crime Agency and Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre.

29-year-old Mark Luscombe from Verwood was sentenced yesterday at Bournemouth Crown Court after pleading guilty to arranging or facilitating the commission of a child sex offence, sexual activity with a child and eight offences of making indecent photographs of a child.

Speaking to Wessex FM, CPS spokesman Anthony Johns described Dorset's officers as 'thorough' and 'dilligent'.

In a statement, the CPS say Luscombe actively used the internet to arrange and encourage others based mainly in America to sexually abuse and rape their own children.
