Paedophile shared sick sexual abuse images of children with other perverts

A paedophile shared sick child sexual abuse images with other perverts.

James Moore, 55, hoarded indecent photographs of children at an address in Tarbolton.

Moore appeared at Ayr Sheriff Court last week where he admitted three charges relating to child pornography images.

Moore, of McLeod Court in the village, admitted taking or permitting to be taken indecent pictures of children.

He also pled guilty to having them in his possession. He admitted a third charge of distributing or showing indecent photographs of kids.

He denied having extreme porn showing animals involved in sexual activity with people.

His not guilty plea to that charge was accepted by the fiscal. In addition he pled not guilty to telling someone online that he wanted to commit a sexual offence against a child.

The fiscal also accepted his not guilty plea for that charge.

Sheriff John Montgomery has added Moore to the sex offender’s register while reports are prepared on his background. 

The Sheriff ordered a risk assessment to be carried out.

Moore is due back in court at a later date.
