Singer is jailed for explicit messages

A JAZZ singer who sent explicit messages to a 13-year-old girl before he was caught with a large stash of child porn on his computer has been jailed for two-and-a-half years, following an eight-day trial at Edinburgh Sheriff Court.

Craig McMurdo, 49, of Gorebridge, Midlothian, had denied the crimes.
