[A] MAN has appeared before a judge and admitted a host of crimes involving indecent child images and extreme porn.
At Carlisle Crown Court today (WED), 58-year-old John Robert Nugent entered guilty pleas to six counts of making indecent still photographs of children.
Nugent also accepted two charges of possessing prohibited still images of children, and also the possession of extreme pornographic moving images.
His offences came to light after police executed a search warrant at a Maryport address in November, 2014. Two computer towers are said to have been seized, along with an external hard drive and a laptop, leading to the illegal images being recovered.
Nugent’s case was adjourned by Judge Barbara Forrester, who directed that a background report on the defendant should be prepared by the probation service.
Nugent – formerly of Maryport but now of Shotteswell, Warwickshire – was granted bail.
He is due to be sentenced at the crown court on Wednesday, 27th July.
