A man has been jailed for six years after pleading guilty to a string of offences involving indecent images of children.

Jeffrey Beeden, of Furnival Street, Cobridge, was sentenced at Stoke-on-Trent Crown Court yesterday, Monday.

The 51-year-old pleaded guilty to 17 counts of making/possessing indecent photographs of a child and one count of distributing indecent photographs of a child between December 2004 and June 2012.

Beeden was arrested by police in March 2013 after he was released from prison for serving a nine-month sentence for breaching his Sex Offenders Prevention Order (SOPO).

During this time officers had carried out detailed examinations of computer equipment seized from Beeden’s home address on previous routine visits.

Their inquiries uncovered Beeden had set up a website and forum on the ‘dark side’ of the internet – an encrypted area of the internet accessed and used by offenders.

Hundreds of thousands of indecent images were recovered dating back several years. Beeden had distributed in excess of 6,000 indecent images of children.

Beeden allowed others to access the images he had, and also set up a forum encouraging others to provide, and discuss, indecent material.

Following his arrest Beeden was subsequently charged with multiple offences, to which he pleaded guilty yesterday.

Detective Inspector Andy Maxfield, from the force’s Child Exploitation Team, said: “Staffordshire Police will not tolerate those who download, possess or distribute images of child abuse.

“This sentence sends out a strong message to those who engage in this abhorrent type of offending behaviour. You will be caught and dealt with accordingly.

“The protection and care of vulnerable young people is a top priority for Staffordshire Police.

“The Child Exploitation Team, which is part of the force’s Protecting Vulnerable People Department, is dedicated to tackling child exploitation issues on a multi-agency basis through prevention, safeguarding and enforcement.
“Reports of child exploitation are treated extremely seriously and will be thoroughly investigated. We will continue to work closely with other agencies to protect the most vulnerable.

“Anyone with concerns about children is urged to contact Staffordshire Police on 101.”

DEAD: Sally Jones Britain’s Most Wanted Woman and Islamic State Recruiter Killed

Published

on

The White Widow Sally Jones has been Killed in a US Drone Strike, Jones who had planned many terror attacks fled the UK to become a IS Recruiter.

She was Britain’s Most Wanted Woman. It is believed she died in a US Air Force Drone Strike which happened near to the border of Syria and Iraq.

Jones was killed in June 2017, with the news kept hush because of fears that her 12-year-old son may have also been killed.

Jones left her home in Chatham, Kent in 2013 with her son Jojo to join Islamic State in Syria. During this time she often used her son as a human shield to save her own life.

The CIA and MI6 spent months tracking down Jones before they launched a Drone Strike and killed her.

She played a key role in the recruitment of young females becoming jihadis often leaving their families in the middle of the night to head out and join the Islamic State.

Despite the claims that Jones is dead, the US cannot 100 percent be sure she is dead, as they made no attempt to recover any DNA, But they are very confident that she is dead.

Drone Strikes are very clever in the way they work as they are able to follow targets for a number of weeks before launching a missile attack without any civilians being killed.

However, they cannot confirm if 12-year-old brainwashed Jojo has been killed also, something which the Americans could face a backlash over.

Jojo was brainwashed he faced years of forced lessons in radical Islam & firearms training. He recently featured within an IS execution video standing behind a row of prisoners who was kneeling on the floor before pulling the trigger and murdering them.

Jones converted to Islam and was nicknamed the White Widow after her Islamic State husband Junaid Hussain was killed by a drone in 2015.

Hussain aged 21 and from Birmingham brainwashed Jones to such a degree she became head of recruitment for young women and schoolgirls within the Islamic State.

Jones & Hussain planned many attacks across Europe and America and is believed to have been a key recruiter and brainwasher of many wanting to join the Islamic State.

Jones was linked to the planning of a number of major terror attacks including one which planned to blow up the Queen and Prince Philip on the streets of London during the VJ celebrations.
