Sutton man sent to Crown Court after admitting child porn charges

A Sutton man has been sent to the Crown Court after admitting possession of child porn.

Tony Bunting, aged 55, of Percival Crescent, admitted attempting to engage in sexual communication with a child when he appeared at Mansfield Magistrates’ Court.

He also admitted possessing four category A indecent images of children, two category B images and 12 category C images, when category A is the most extreme.

Freddie Sail, prosecuting, said police seized his computer, in June last year, after Bunting made contact with a decoy online profile of a 13-year-old girl.
