Paedophiles who trade child porn will not be sent to prison: New sentencing laws suggest community punishments
- The Sentencing Council suggested 'high level community orders' for those convicted of trading or possessing child pornography
- The current benchmark jail sentence for those with a small number of images is three months
- Only those with pictures of children posing alone or small quantities of images of children engaged in sex acts, but not with adults are not jailed
- Criminologist Dr David Green said it was 'sending the wrong message'
