Shell executive caught viewing child porn at home as he accidentally sent vile images to office printer

A senior manager at oil giant Shell was caught downloading
indecent images of children at home when he mistakenly tried to print out some pages on his work printer, a court has
heard.
Anthony Sturman, 59, sent six pages containing indecent
material to a printer at the Waterloo headquarters of Shell
UK, where he had worked for 15 years.
Sturman was viewing child porn at his country home in Kent
when he pressed the print button. His PC was linked to his
work system, so the images were produced at his office.
Seven of the images printed were categorised at level four,
the second highest level of abuse.
A horrified colleague discovered the images when she
unclogged a jammed printer on the 18th floor at the Shell
Centre in Waterloo on June 28 last year.
There were 42 indecent images across six pieces of paper,
all in thumbnail size, Inner London Crown Court heard.
Darren Ponds, prosecuting, said Ruth Elliott, a colleague at Shell, had discovered the images.
‘A jam had occurred and when that jam was fixed the backed up items began to print. A number of pages of indecent images of children were printed.’
Examination of the data from the printer revealed the items had come from Sturman’s computer and he was arrested two days later.
Yogain Chandarana, defending, said Sturman had destroyed the life he had built for himself.
‘He has actively sought treatment for himself since his arrest 18 months ago,’ he said. ‘He has laid out his soul in front of probation officers.’
‘Clearly though, he did not intend to produce these images on a work printer.
‘He has caused a complete destruction of the life he had built…because of his behaviour.’
