Pervert attracted to prepubescent kids 

A pervert with a sexual interest in prepubescent kids has pleaded guilty to possessing images of young children being raped

37-year-old Marcus Brace pleaded guilty to possessing indecent images of children as young as five years old

Brace, of Downs View Road on Pan Estate, Newport appeared before the Isle of Wight Magistrates Court on Friday charged with three counts of making indecent images of a child which involved all categories of indecency including the rape and torture of young children

The prosecution explained to the court that Police identified Brace and paid a visit to his home, where he lived with his partner.

When officers arrived Brace said, “I’ve seen some images and would like to speak to someone about this”. A number of electrical items were seized.

In interview, the 37-year-old admitted to going on different platforms and opening links.

The Crown Prosecution Service said that the images were of children aged between five and nine years old

Magistrates decided the matter was too serious to be dealt with by them so adjourned the case for sentencing at the Crown Court on 29th June.
