North-east man admits possessing 31 indecent images of children

A man has admitted possessing 31 indecent images of children.

Norman Harper, 60, appeared at Aberdeen Sheriff Court yesterday where he pleaded guilty to possessing and making indecent photographs or pseudo-photographs of children.

Fiscal depute John Richardson said police had received intelligence from a national child abuse prevention agency on the case.

Sheriff William Summers deferred sentence on Harper, whose address was given as Tullynessle, Alford, and made him subject to the notification requirements of the Sex Offenders’ Act.

He will be sentenced next month.
