Pensioner admits making 25 of ‘most serious’ indecent pictures of children

A 67-year-old man awaits sentence after he admitted making indecent images of children.

Michael Dunstan pleaded guilty to three charges of making indecent photographs of children between February 2016 and October 2017.

The charges relate to 25 pictures in the most serious category in law and 32 in less severe categories.

Dunstan, of Victoria Close, New Marske, had no previous convictions.

Judge Simon Bourne-Arton QC, the Recorder of Middlesbrough, bailed the defendant until sentencing on May 29.

He told Dunstan on Thursday: “You’ve had the good sense to plead guilty to this indictment.

“You’ll be given the appropriate credit.

“Any sentence will be available to the judge.”

Dunstan will be on the sex offenders’ register as a result of his conviction.
