Former Lincolnshire town councillor in court for child pornography charges

A former North Kesteven district councillor appeared before Lincoln Magistrates’ Court on Thursday, July 7, accused of child pornography offences.

Ian Dolby, who is also a former Sleaford Town councillor, faced three charges of making a total of 913 pornographic images of a child on a date on or before 4 December 2013.

Dolby, 51, of North Road, Sleaford, gave no indication of plea and was committed to Lincoln Crown Court where he is due to appear on August 4 for a plea and case management hearing.

He was granted bail on condition that he has no unsupervised contact with any child under the age of 17.

Dolby was an Independent councillor who represented the Sleaford Quarrington and Mareham Ward until he resigned in April 2014 citing pressure of work commitments.
