A BURTON man has appeared in court charged with possessing more than 70,000 indecent images of children.
Craig Jenkins also faces charges of making more than 15,000 further images and possessing pictures showing sexual acts being performed on animals.
Nine of the images of children he is accused of possessing were categorised as level five – the most extreme end of the scale.
Jenkins, 44, of Tutbury Road, entered no plea to 12 charges at Burton Magistrates’ Court.
He is due to appear at Stafford Crown Court for a plea and case management hearing on June 13.
