A paedophile football coach who kept nearly 500 sexual images of young children has been locked up for just over two years.

Marc Kenny, who had previously been a welfare officer and director of football of youth football club Aylesbury Town Corinthians FC, has been jailed for two years and one month following a sentencing at Aylesbury Crown Court on Friday.

Kenny, aged 45, of Misbourne Close in Aylesbury, pleaded guilty to three counts of making an indecent image of a child and one count of distributing an indecent image of a child.

What did Kenny do?

During the sentencing, which was held over two days, prosecutor Nigel Ogborne told the court that police found nearly 500 sexual images and videos of children on Kenny’s phone.

Judge Francis Sheridan was told how Kenny had admitted to police during an interview that he was “sexually attracted to girls as young as eight years old.”

Going through the evidence against Kenney, Mr Ogborne went into disturbing detail when describing some of the images and videos that the defendant had in his possession.

One 16-second video showed a baby that was less than one year old being sexually abused.

Kenny was also caught by police sharing a sexual image of an 11-year old girl on group chats where members would fantasise about sexually abusing children. This image was sent to more than 400 users.

Kenny was sentenced to two years and one month in prison by Judge Sheridan. He will also be on the sex offenders register for 10 years.
