An IT expert who was freed early after being jailed for amassing a huge hoard of child pornography has been sent back to prison after downloading more indecent images.

Yeoman Smith was released on licence with conditions that he did not access the internet unless supervised and with prior authorisation.

But the judge who jailed him for his original crime said he “blatantly broke” the conditions by obtaining computer equipment and committing the same sort of offence.

Lord Uist sent Smith back to prison for 15 months at the High Court in Edinburgh yesterday. Smith, 37, was jailed for 25 months in 2011 and put under supervision for a further three years after a friend found child pornography at his flat in Livingstone Place, Marchmont.

A sheriff in Livingston will sentence him later for the latest offences.
