A MAN has admitted making more than 1,000 indecent images of children and possessing images of someone performing a sexual act with an animal.

Jaime Ogden, 41, answered to five different charges relating to indecent images and videos at Chelmsford Magistrates’ Court last Thursday.

Ogden was charged with making 78 Category B images and 24 Category B videos of a child in Maldon between January 1 and April 1 this year. The photos and videos were found on a laptop.

He was also charged with making 24 indecent images and 86 videos of a child during the same timeframe.

The court heard these were classified as Category A - the most severe category.

Again during these dates he was charged with making Category C images and videos of a child - a total of 1,114 images and 18 videos were found.

He was also charged with possessing an extreme pornographic image which showed a person performing a sexual act with an animal.

The other charge was for possession of a prohibited image of a child between January 12 and 13.

Ogden, of Burnham Road, Latchingdon, admitted to the charges in front of magistrates.

He will next appear at Chelmsford Crown Court on December 5 for sentencing. He remains on conditional bail until the hearing.
