Pervert faces jail

A PERVERT has been warned he could face jail after pleading guilty to a string of child porn charges.

Simon Reeve has admitted 15 counts of making indecent photographs of a child.

He also admitted possessing an indecent film of a child at level four on the indecency scale – with level five being the highest.

The 31-year-old, from Park Road, Hartlepool, also pleaded guilty to possessing a number of indecent photographs of children.

Reeve entered the pleas on the day he was due to stand trial at Teesside Crown Court.

The 15 counts date back to April 12, 2009, and the two possession charges date back to April 28, 2009.

Reeve’s barrister Richard Bennett asked for bail for his client and added: “He is under no illusions as to the potential sentence.”

Judge Anthony Briggs told Reeve: “I will bail you on the same terms.

“Don’t read into that any indication as to the sentence. All options, including custody, remain open.”
