A PENSIONER who downloaded indecent images of children is awaiting sentence.

Stewart Black appeared at Kilmarnock Sheriff Court last week to face two charges relating to sexually explicit images of children.

The 69-year-old of Saltcoats admitted to making or permitting to be taken indecent images or pseudo images of children at his home address between April 17, 2017 and January 8, 2018.

He also admitted to possessing child porn at his home address between April 17 and January 9, 2018.

Black also faced a third charge of possessing extreme pornography which depicted explicit images of bestiality but he pled not guilty which was accepted by the procurator fiscal.

Black’s sentence was deferred.

He was bailed to return to court on November 4 this year.
