Bosley man jailed for importing child-like sex dolls

A man from Bosley who admitted purchasing and importing eight child-like sex dolls from China has been jailed for twelve months.

Mark Carter, of Stoneyfold Lane, Bosley, pleaded guilty to six counts of importing obscene articles and also admitted three counts of making indecent images of children, one count of possession of indecent images of children and one count of possessing prohibited images of children.

Carter was also ordered to sign the sex offenders register for ten-years and handed a ten year sexual harm prevention order.

The investigation began in October 2018 when Border Force officials at West Midlands Airport intercepted a child-like sex doll being delivered to Carter’s home in Bosley. 

The package was withheld whilst the discovery was reported to Cheshire Police who subsequently secured a search warrant for Carter’s home. 

Whilst searching police officers recovered eight child-like sex dolls, along with computer equipment which was later found to contain a number of indecent images of children.

Following Carter’s sentencing detective constable Dave Walton, from Cheshire Constabulary’s Online Child Abuse Investigation Team, said: “I hope that Carter’s conviction acts as a warning to other offenders and sends a clear message that importing items such as these is a criminal offence and action will be taken.”
