Wrexham teen downloaded indecent images


Staff reporter (Leader Live)

A TEENAGER has admitted downloading more than 30 indecent images of children.

The 15-year-old from Wrexham admitted a number of offences relating to indecent images of children and offensive communications.

One week last October the boy had in his possession a series of indecent photographs, including an image of two naked children aged under 10 with a skipping rope.

He also had an image of a young girl aged between seven and 11 having sex with an adult male and an image of a naked girl aged under 10 bouncing on an inflatable ring.

Categories of indecent images range from Level 1 to Level 5 with Level 1 being the lowest.

The image of the girl having sex with an adult male was classed as a Level 4 image.

The youth also admitted a separate charge of possessing a further 33 images of young women and having sent an offensive message by means of electronic communication on October 22.

Stephen Edwards, defending, said due to the nature of the charges the court would benefit from a full pre-sentence report. “This will be a matter of some substance,” he said.

The court was told the youth had previously received a warning for downloading such images.

The hearing was adjourned to Wrexham Youth Court on June 24.
