Pervert pleads guilty to child abuse image haul

A man has admitted hoarding a horrific haul of child sexual abuse images

Keith Scott, 22, has been placed on the Sex Offenders’ Register for keeping the sickening stash at his home.

Scott, of Ayr, admitting two charges when he appeared at Ayr Sheriff Court yesterday.

The first charge he pleaded guilty to stated that he “did take or permit to be taken or make indecent photographs or pseudo-photographs of children”.

The second charge he admitted stated he was in possession of the images at his home in the Ayrshire town

Prosecutor Martina McGuigan told the court that prosecutors were not asking for a Sexual Offences Prevention Order, a tough court order which places limits on what sex offenders are allowed to do when living in the community.

Sheriff John Montgomery did not hear the facts of the case and adjourned it until next month for sentencing to take place
