A man has been jailed for ten years after he pleaded guilty to sexually assaulting young boys and sharing images of the abuse on the internet.  

juran_mediumDusan Juran, 25, of Bradford Road, Shipley, was sentenced at Bradford Crown Court today (Tuesday, 27 January) after admitting four charges.

Juran was arrested when officers from West Yorkshire Police’s Abusive Images Unit carried out a search warrant of his home in November last year, after receiving information about the online distribution of indecent images and movies.

A number of items were seized from the address, including a mobile phone and a laptop computer.

Following an investigation, Juran, a Czech national, admitted that he had abused a 10-year-old child while on holiday in the Czech Republic.

Evidence of this was found on the computer along with naked photographs of another young boy, who was believed to be about six years old.

Juran was subsequently charged with four offences and was remanded into custody.

Speaking after sentence, Detective Constable John Higgins, of West Yorkshire Police’s Abusive Images Unit, said “The term of imprisonment passed down today reflects the severity of these offences.

“The victims were young boys who do not live in the UK. This case demonstrates that West Yorkshire Police will robustly investigate any offences committed against vulnerable children in our society, not just in the UK, but anywhere in the world.

“We also hope it will encourage other victims of sexual abuse to engage with West Yorkshire Police and our specially trained officers, who will investigate all offences sensitively and thoroughly, with the aim of securing convictions against offenders.”
