A convicted sex offender has admitted possessing extreme pornographic images.

Stephen McCrossan, whose address was given on court papers as c/o Maghaberry, pleaded guilty to a total of 33 charges relating to indecent images of children.

They include making and possessing indecent images of children and possessing extreme pornographic images.

The 23-year-old also admitted breaching a sexual offences prevention order by having a computer in his home.

All the offences were committed between June 2012 and February 2013.

Sentencing was adjourned for a probation pre-sentence report to be compiled.

Defence solicitor Derwin Harvey told the court his client suffers from ‘acute psychiatric complaints’ and a psychiatric report would also be furnished to the judge prior to sentencing.

McCrossan was remanded in custody and will appear in court again on February 27.
