A young sex offender of the United Kingdom, walked free from jail after a judge changed his mind over the harsh sentenced.

John Long, 20, of Liverpool, was arrested after police found photos of him sexually abusing a sleeping baby in a stroller, and a toddler.

Long also had thousands of inappropriate images stored on the hard drive of his computer, including indecent images of children and of sex with animals.

When police were tipped off to the fact the Long was downloading these images, they raided his house.

While reviewing the images, investigators found six photos of Long molesting two very young children.

Long allegedly told police: “My head is messed up.”

Long pleaded guilty in the Liverpool Crown Court to sexual assault, making and possessing indecent images of children and possession of cannabis.

A lawyer for Long, who was in foster care since he was four years old after he was found to be severely malnourished, said that he was relieved when he was caught and he wants to go for help.

Judge Brian Cummings, QC, initially sentenced Long to 2 years and eight months in a young offenders institution for the “gross breach of trust.”

However, the next day, the judge called the young man back for resentencing.

Judge Cummings said that he had reviewed the sentence and decided it should be reduced because it was too harsh.

Judge Cummings used a law known as the “Slip Rule,” which gives judges the right to change a sentence within 56 days.

Long was given a two-year detention and training order, suspended for two years, with two years of probation supervision.

The judge also ordered Long to attend a sex offender's program, which is designed to help him with his disturbing behavior.

Long will however have to stay on the sex offenders registry for the rest of his life.
