A MAN caught with indecent photos and movies of children on his phone has been ordered to register as a sex offender.
Ben Lamb pleaded guilty at Warwick Crown Court to three charges of possessing images of children and three of possessing indecent movies of children.
Lamb, 24 and of High Street in Broom near Alcester, also pleaded guilty to three charges of distributing a number of the images.
The court heard police found 21 photographs and 12 movies classed as being of category A – the most serious – on his phone.
There were 108 stills and 11 movies in category B – showing non-penetrative sex acts with children – and 277 stills and two movies in category C, classed as being ‘other indecent images’ of children.
And Lamb had distributed four category A images, 23 category B images and 96 category C images.
The case was adjourned for a pre-sentence report to be prepared on Lamb, who was ordered to register as a sex offender, with the period being determined by the sentence he eventually receives. He was granted bail.
