Burslem pervert pleadsguilty to making indecent photographs of children

Pervert Stephen Bould pleaded guilty to three charges of making indecent photographs of children.

The 53-year-old admitted making still indecent images of children at category A – the most serious – between October 20, 2019 and May 1, 2020.

Bould, of Edge Street, Burslem, also admitted making category B and category C indecent photographs of children between the same dates.

Judge Sally Hancox ordered a pre-sentence report and Bould will learn his fate at Stoke-on-Trent Crown Court in the week commencing September 18.

He was placed on the sex offenders’ register on an interim basis and his bail was extended.
