Offender admits to breaching sex order
A PERVERT who asked children to send him explicit pictures of themselves has admitted breaching his sexual offences prevention order and harassing a female.
James Bernard Anthony Carragher also admitted seven further charges of persistent and improper use of a communications system to send material that was "grossly offensive or indecent, obscene or of a menacing character," and to cause "annoyance, inconvenience or needless anxiety to another" on various dates between December 1, 2012 and March 4 last year.
The breach relates to Carragher having a mobile phone, an item he was barred from owning by court order.
His solicitor told Antrim Magistrates Court that Carragher, from Plantation Road in Portadown, "will be pleading guilty to all matters" and District Judge Alan White adjourned passing sentence until probation reports have been compiled.
Yesterday Judge White released Carragher on continuing bail until sentencing, which will take place on March 18.
