A man who dodged jail over indecent images of children will have to pay a £100 fine after failing to provide police with details of a bank card.

Michael Hamilton, 52, pled guilty to failing to notify the police of a Halifax bank card held in his name within the three-day period allowed between December 4, 2017 and January 31, 2018 while a person subject to the notification requirement.

The Times previously revealed how Hamilton admitted possessing a sickening stash of indecent images of children on his mobile phone whilst at his work place in Irvine’s Amer Sports in Crompton Way between February 3 and February 9, 2014.

Hamilton also admitted possessing the sick psuedo-images between March 15, 2013 and March 14, 2014 at his home address in McDowall Place, Ardrossan.

Hamilton was detained from his place of work by police on an unrelated matter on February 14, 2014 and taken to Saltcoats Police Office.

Police searched Hamilton’s home on March 11, 2014. Between the phone and a laptop, a total of 50 indecent images and five moving images were recovered.

Hamilton dodged a prison sentence, receiving three years supervision, 200 hours of unpaid work and placed on the Sex Offender’s Register for the period of his supervision.

Hamilton was fined £100 when he returned to court last week (May 30).
