A perverted pensioner who made and distributing indecent images of children is awaiting his punishment. 

Antony Holman, from Hallsfield, Cricklade, appeared before Swindon Magistrates' Court on Wednesday, May 7, where he faced six separate charges relating to the images. 

The 68-year-old was found by Wiltshire Police to have made hundreds of indecent photographs of children between November 22, 2012 and November 18, 2022. 

Of them, 102 were considered category A images, which is the most severe classification of image and includes penetrative sexual activity, sexual activity with an animal or sadism, 49 of these were accessible on his device but 53 were inaccessible and were discovered by police. 

He made a further 60 Category B images, which are images involving non-penetrative sexual activity and 558 Category C images, which are indecent images not falling in categories A or B. 

Between the dates of August 28, 2022 and September 11, 2022, he was also found to have distributed 5 Category A images, 3 Category B images and 6 Category C images. 

Holman pleaded guilty to all six charges.

Because of the nature of the pictures, three of the charges fell outside the remit of Swindon Magistrates' Court. 

Holman was added to the sex offenders' register and is due to be sentenced at Swindon Crown Court on June 7.
