James Krengel of Nipsells Chase, Chelmsford, was jailed for 28 months when he appeared at Chelmsford Crown Court on Friday 28 January.
The 41-year-old pleaded guilty to sex offences including possessing and distributing indecent images of children and a breach of his notification requirement order.
Essex Police Online Investigation Team (POLIT) arrested Krengel at his home on December 30, 2021, after receiving information he had uploaded an indecent image of a child.
During the investigation, officers discovered Krengel had breached a sexual offences notification requiring him to register at a police station yearly.
James Krengel of Nipsells Chase, appeared at Chelmsford Magistrates Court the following day (31 December 2021).
PC Courtney Evans, POLIT, investigating, said:

“There is nothing more important than protecting children and young people from those who are intent on exploiting or abusing them.
“This is the work we carry out every day to keep the people of Essex safe, and this sentence will keep the public just that bit safer.”
