FANS of entertainer Duncan Breeze say they are standing by their idol and believe he is innocent after he was jailed for downloading child pornography.Duncan Breeze, who comes from the Weston area and was once billed as 'The new Michael Ball', has been sentenced to two years in prison for downloading 'disgusting and sickening' images of children, some of which were found at his parent's home in Kewstoke.But his loyal fan club says he is innocent of all charges and a gross miscarriage of justice has taken place.The 32-year-old singer wrote a 26-page letter to his fans from his prison cell, explaining why he is innocent. It has been typed up and posted on the internet.In it he says: "I must thank all my family, friends and fans for their support during this horrendous time in my life."Shock isn't even the word I'd use for how I feel now and how I felt that awful day in April."I had been found guilty of something I hadn't done and which the defence evidence should have proved."An internet website has also been created, appealing for help to free him from prison and reverse the guilty verdict. Breeze, who performed several times at Weston's Playhouse theatre, is appealing against the guilty verdict, returned by a jury at Luton Crown Court.He was convicted of 20 charges of making indecent images between 2001 and 2004. Police found more than 4,000 images on computers at his parent's home in Beach Road, Kewstoke, and his former home in Cambridgeshire.The court was told his career is in tatters and that he is now heavily in debt. Breeze must register as a sex offender for 10 years and is disqualified from any employment where he could come into contact with children.Jailing him, Judge Geoffrey Breen said: "Some of the images are particularly disgusting and sickening and it is not difficult to imagine the distress caused to the children in them.
