‘Meehan not welcome back on our estate’

CHILD porn pervert Craig Meehan will not be welcome back on his former estate, say neighbours.
Meehan, 22, of Moorside Road, Dewsbury, was yesterday sentenced to 20 weeks jail after been found guilty of viewing 49 indecent images of children.
But the former partner of Shannon Matthews’ mother left court as a free man, having served 166 days on remand.
Outside Dewsbury Magistrates’ Court, Julie Bushby, chairman of Moorside Road Residents’ Association, said residents were disgusted and disappointed with Meehan’s crimes.
She said: “If you do it, you deserve everything you get.
“If he comes back up to the Moor, I don’t think he’ll get very far. He won’t be able to go back.
“At the end of the day, what he’s done was wrong.
“How can I describe it? It’s sick, end of.
“What would your reaction be if he moved to where you lived?”
