Wath man admits child abuse images offences

A MAN has pleaded guilty to making and distributing indecent images of children.

Jonathan Welch (33), of Oaklands Place, Wath, appeared at Sheffield Crown Court last Thursday.

Welch admitted making indecent pseudo-photographs of a child — some of which were category A (the most extreme level).

He also admitted distributing category A, B and C indecent pseudo-photographs of children.

Welch was released on bail and will be sentenced at the same court on February 5.

  • A pseudo-photograph is an image made by computer graphics or otherwise which appears to be a photograph.
