Stephen Meredith of Four Crosses admits indecent images

A registered sex offender faces jail after admitting making and possessing indecent images of children.

Stephen Meredith, 60, of Four Crosses, Powys, admitted four charges at Welshpool Magistrates' Court.

The court heard Meredith underwent a routine check by officers at his home, when he warned them about the contents of his computer.

Magistrates told Meredith he faced jail and bailed him conditionally until 14 November for sentencing.

Meredith appeared before magistrates on Tuesday and admitted three charges in relation to making indecent images of children.

He also admitted possessing indecent images of children.

Helen Tench, prosecuting, said that as a registered sex offender, police officers were making a routine check at Meredith's home on 2 May.

When they entered the home, he told them he had "something on my computer that's not good", the court heard.

Ms Tench said: "Officers sent the computer off for examination and under interview the defendant said he was 'weak-willed' and had nothing else in his life."

She said that he had also made obscene internet searches.

Ceri Edwards, defending, said Meredith had admitted the charges at the earliest opportunity.
