Shamed paedophile covers his face after admitting to sharing sick pictures

A paedophile who admitted sharing indecent pictures fled court with a hood covering his face.

Stockton’s Andrew Darren Turner entered guilty pleas to 11 offences, including making and distributing sick images of children.

The 33-year-old could now be jailed after being told he must be sentenced by a senior judge.

The images were amassed over a 12-month period from April last year.

And Turner, of Claymond Court, Norton, also admitted that he didn’t disclose an alias for over a year while signing the sex offender’s register.

Dressed in a thick winter coat, he legged it from Teesside Magistrates’ Court following Thursday’s hearing.

However he will return to the dock to be sentenced at an unspecified future date at Teesside Crown Court.

Granting him unconditional bail, District Judge Kristina Harrison ordered the probation service to carry out a pre-sentence report.
