Paedophile had more than 1,200 images

A PAEDOPHILE from Gosberton is on the sex offenders’ register after admitting to having more than 1,200 indecent photographs of children.

Christopher Bewick (30) pleaded guilty to five charges of possessing indecent images of children at Lincoln Crown Court on Friday.

The images were discovered on a Sony PlayStation, computer memory stick, media card, computer notebook and CD-ROM on August 11 last year.

Bewick, of Salem Street, was granted conditional bail while a probation report is prepared – but Recorder Paul Mann QC warned him he is “clearly at risk of a custodial sentence.”

Bewick’s bail conditions prevent him from using the internet or having unsupervised contact with anyone under 16.

He will be sentenced at Lincoln Crown Court on Friday, July 29.
