Man admits making more than 600 indecent images of children

Mark Heffron, aged 40, of Castle Street, The Barbican, pleaded guilty at Plymouth Crown Court yesterday to six counts of making more than 600 pornographic images of children.

The court heard that a psychological report has already been prepared.

Judge Francis Gilbert QC ordered Heffron to be sentenced on April 28, warning that all sentencing options including jail will be considered.

He granted bail but ordered Heffron to sign the Sex Offenders’ Register before leaving court.
