Leechmere Man To Be Sentenced Over Possessing Over 1000 Indecent Images of Children

A Leechmere man is set to be sentenced after being caught in possession of over 1000 indecent images and videos of children.

Terrence Roberts, 71 of Hewitt Road, was arrested in July 2020 after police raided his workplace having been absent at home, with the images being discovered on his work computer.

At least 195 of the images were the most serious category: Category A, whilst an “extreme video” involving sexual intercourse with a dog was also found.

Roberts pleaded guilty to all three charges levied against him at Newcastle Crown Court, and is set to be sentenced on March 15th.
