Man admits having 3,500 indecent images

Child photos collected over eight years

A Port Erin man has admitted making and possessing nearly three and a half thousand (3,500) indecent photographs of children.

Ian McLoughlin, of Droghadfayle Road, who is 56, entered guilty pleas to all 10 counts against him when he appeared at a court of general gaol in Douglas on Friday (15 April).

The images were made between October 2007 and November last year.

McLoughlin has been bailed and the case adjourned for a social inquiry report.

He will be sentenced on June 13.

Deemster Montgomerie told the defendant he should not take the granting of bail as an indication of his eventual sentence.
