Man (22) guilty of child abuse images charges | #childabuse | #children | #kids

A young Belfast man has admitted distributing and having indecent images of children being abused.

tanding in the dock of Antrim Crown Court on Thursday, 22-year-old Jay Penny confessed his guilt to all of the 33 charges against him.

Penny, from Knockwood Park in east Belfast, entered guilty pleas to 31 charges of possessing or making indecent images or videos of children.

He also admitted single counts of distributing or showing an indecent image of a child and possessing extreme pornography, all committed on dates between November 2018 and April last year.

Defence counsel Neil Moore said given Penny’s admissions “clearly it’s a matter for a pre-sentence report” and added that he also intended to lodge a psychiatric report ahead of the sentencing hearing.

On social media Penny declares himself to be a Linfield and Rangers fan.

Freeing Penny on continuing bail and ordering him to sign the police sex offenders register, Judge Richard Greene QC said he would pass sentence on January 14.
