New Addington man caught with 2,700 child abuse images

A New Addington man has pleaded guilty to possessing thousands of child abuse images and disgusting images of animal porn.

Kevin Carter was caught in possession of more than 2,700 sexual images of children.

And the depraved 55-year-old was also found to have an image showing a sex act being performed on a dog.

Carter appeared at Croydon Magistrates’ Court this morning (Tuesday, July 24) accused of possessing and distributing child porn and extreme animal porn.

He pleaded guilty to all charges and was then granted unconditional bail by a judge ahead of being sentenced.

Carter’s home on Chertsey Crescent was searched by Metropolitan Police officers who seized equipment belonging to him.

On May 31 last year they found the catalogue of pornographic images of children in Carter’s possession.

He had 401 images of the most extreme nature, depicting full sexual intercourse involving children.

Carter also had more than 1,000 category B images, where the sexual abuse of childen is considered less serious.

Around 1,300 other indecent images of children were also found which were not in categories as serious as those in Category A or B.

Met Police officers also uncovered 17 images of extreme animal porn belonging to Carter.

One image, listed as “grossly offensive” in the charge against him, depicted an act of sexual intercourse being performed on a dog.

Maria Slater, prosecuting, said: “A search warrant was issued for the defendant’s home.

“Equipment was seized by the police which revealed various categories of indecent images of children.”

Carter pleaded guilty to three counts of possessing indecent images of children and three counts of distributing indecent images.

There was one count of possessing an image of intercourse with a dog, which he also pleaded guilty to.

When discussing whether or not he should be granted bail, Ms Slater added: “This defendant seems to have an unhealthy obsession with females.”

Defence solicitor Glen Fell said of his client: “He is concerned for what is likely to happen to him, and it’s extremely unlikely that he will do anything foolhardy between now and that time.”

District Judge Alexander Jacobs granted unconditional bail.

Carter will be sentenced at Croydon Crown Court on a date which is yet to be confirmed.
