Wallasey Man Pleads Guilty to Sex Offences

Last week, Paul Foster, 58, of Cliff Road, Wallasey, appeared at Liverpool Crown Court where he pleaded guilty to a number of sex offences.

Indecent Images

In total, Foster admitted downloading 2,066 indecent photographs of children between May 31, 2010 and October 16, 2014.

460 of those images were classed as Category A – the most serious category, and a further 254 came under Category B.

Foster pleaded guilty to possessing 224 indecent images of children, with intent to show or distribute to others. He also admitted actually distributing indecent photographs of children July 28 and October 3, 2014.

As well as pleading guilty to possessing Foster admitted possessing 21 images containing extreme animal pornography.

In Court

In court, the defendant was given permission to stand outside of the dock due to hearing problems and he spoke only to enter his guilty pleas.

Prosecuting, Kim Egerton explained that the Crown needed ‘more time to establish what category the 224 indecent images Foster intended to distribute or show to others fell into’.

Accepting that this decision could have an effect on Foster’s sentence, Judge Andrew Menary QC adjourned the case until November 23rd. He said:

“The fact I am adjourning sentencing should not be taken as any kind of indication of sentence. The court will consider these matters again on that date.”

Bail was granted by the Judge under the condition that Foster does not have unsupervised access to children & he has also been made subject to a provisional Sexual Harm Prevention Order.
