Holbeach St Marks teenager admits having indecent images and videos of children

A Holbeach St Marks teenager has been sent for sentence at the Crown Court on charges of making indecent images of children.

Joseph Orbell (18), of Strawberry Fields Drive, admitted making a total of 782 still and 16 moving images of children between January 2015 and March 2019.

Prosecuting at Boston Magistrates Court, Michael Little said police executed a search warrant at Orbell's home on March 5, 2019 after receiving information that indecent photographs had been loaded from his computer onto a website.

He said Orbell immediately admitted having indecent images on his various devices, and images were found on an iPhone, iPad and his personal computer.

Mr Little said of the 782 images, 102 still and two videos were of the most serious category A type.

He said officers also found evidence of internet searches for under age girls.

The magistrates were told that Orbell was only just turned 18 and had been a 'very young age' when the offences were committed between 2015 and 2019.

The magistrates sent Orbell to Lincoln Crown Court for sentence on a date to be arranged and he was granted unconditional bail.

He was also placed on the Sex Offenders' Register and ordered to report to a police station within three days.
