Court Sentencing

Today 42 year old Karn Laffoley was sentenced to 8 years and 6 months in prison and issued with a 15 year Restraining Order in relation to numerous indecent image offences.

Laffoley can only be described as a predator, grooming a woman in order to obtain images of an innocent child. His behaviour is nothing short of abhorrent.

Detective Inspector Steve Langford said, “Laffoley is a dangerous man and it’s likely his behaviour would have continued if he hadn’t been caught. He not only got the woman to send him the images of the child but he also then tried to trade these images to others, a charge which has never been used before in Jersey.”

The States of Jersey Police worked with a number of other agencies, including UK Police, National Crime Agency and the FBI, in the investigation and subsequent arrest and charge of Karn Laffoley.
