Uttoxeter pervert admits making dozens of indecent images of children

A Uttoxeter pervert has admitted making more than 60 indecent images of a child.

David Wootton made 61 images – including three “moving images”.

Two of the images made by the 41-year-old were deemed to be in “Category A”, meaning they were of the most serious nature.

Appearing in Cannock Magistrates’ Court on Friday, August 6, Wootton pleaded guilty to five charges of “make photograph/pseudo-photograph of a child”.

The first relates to two still Category B images; the second to 55 still Category C images; the third to one moving Category A image; the fourth to one still Category A image; and the fifth to two moving Category C images.

Wootton, of Byrds Lane, was committed to crown court, where he will be sentenced for the offences on a date yet to be decided.

His offences took place between January and March 2020.

The defendant has been granted unconditional bail until his sentencing hearing takes place.
