A man who identifies as a woman has been spared a jail sentence despite being convicted of being in possession of sadistic child pornography.
Louise Foord, born Lewis, was apprehended at his home in Colchester after a breach of a protection order related to a previous sex attack he committed in 2019. The order required Foord, 21, to register all social media accounts, names, and banking information with police so they could keep tabs on his behavior.
In the United Kingdom, a suspended sentence means the offender avoids jail completely, and instead spends their time in the community during which they are expected to not commit another offence.
In 2019, Foord was sentenced to 22 months for imprisoning a woman in his home and sexually assaulting her. Foord was 19 years old at the time, and identified as male.
