Joiner facing jail after admitting addiction to child abuse images

A joiner is facing jail for downloading a horde of child abuse images.

Lyall Pert’s home in Invergowrie, near Dundee, was raided by cops on June 11 last year.

He told his partner “I can’t stop” as he was arrested.

Police officers seized a laptop computer, two mobile telephones and a tablet from his home and discovered 277 images and four videos, featuring male and female victims from infants to children aged around 15 years.

Some were “extremely graphic”,

Pert, 53, of Greystane Road, pled guilty on indictment to charges of downloading and possessing indecent images of children and breaching bail.

Sentence was deferred until next month and Pert placed on the sex offenders’ register in the interim.
