Craig Lowe, mitigating, said Jenner made full and frank admissions. He committed the offences while he was “at a low ebb” and told police he was “disgusted and ashamed of himself”.
Judge David Tremberg told the court Jenner had been suffering “personal and emotional turmoil” after his wife left him and he became isolated.
He had been “coping very, very badly” with his life and lost his job, but later found further employment.
The law was designed to protect children from “sexual exploitation” because the actions of people like Jenner increased the likelihood of indecent images being produced, said Judge Tremberg.
Jenner was given a three-year supervision order, including a sex offender treatment programme, and he was ordered to register as a sex offender for five years.
He was given a five-year sexual offences prevention order, banning him from using the internet unless his website history was kept and it could be checked by the police.
