Yarm paedophile faces prison after he admits making over 20,000 indecent images of children
A Yarm man has admitted making over 20,000 indecent photographs of children.
Robert Carter appeared at Teesside Crown Court on Monday afternoon.
The 67-year-old, of Nursery Gardens, Yarm, pleaded guilty to making 374 category A images – the most serious.
He also admitted making 777 category B images and 20,548 category C images.
The court in Middlesbrough heard how the offences were committed between 2007 and 2019.
Judge Paul Watson QC adjourned the case so a pre-sentence report could be prepared.
He warned Carter that he faces being sent to prison in April.
The judge said: “I’m going to adjourn this case until 9th April for sentence so a pre-sentence report can be prepared.
“I’m going to grant you bail in the mean time.
“There are several thousand images there.
“It’s a serious offence and you must expect the possibility of a custodial sentence.”
