Gosforth pervert admits having more than 700 sick images of children

This is the Gosforth pervert who has admitted having more than 700 sick indecent images of children.

George Hobson collected the vile stash – which included the most serious category A kind – on his computer between 2014 ad 2016.

The 31-year-old, of Linhorpe Road, Gosforth, was also found in possession of extreme porn, which showed women and dogs, a court was told.

He downloaded all the images from his computer in his home between September 2 2014 and June 9 2016, prosecutors said.

Now, Hobson is facing an immediate prison sentence after he pleaded guilty to three counts of making indecent images of a child, one of possessing a prohibited image of a child and one of possessing extreme porn.

North Tyneside Magistrates’ Court was told that Hobson was found with a total of 719 photographs, including 307 of category A, which is the most serious kind and involves penetrative activity.

Because of the seriousness of the offence, District Judge Sarah Griffiths sent Hobson to be sentenced at Newcastle Crown Court.

She told him: “I’m sending this case to the crown court. A judge will deal with you there and they will request any Pre-Sentence Report.”

Hobson was released on unconditional bail to next appear at Newcastle Crown Court on December 6.
