Derry man admits making indecent images of children

A 49-year-old Derry man has pleaded guilty to thirteen charges of making indecent images of children when he appeared at the local Crown Court today (Tuesday).

Michael Mullan, from Cooleen Park in Derry, admitted committing the offences between 2005 and 2008.

The case was adjourned to allow the preparation of a pre-sentence report and Judge Piers Grant told Mullan that it was "almost inevitable" he would go to jail.

He was released on bail and will be sentenced next month.
