A Lincoln man who admitted downloading and distributing incident images of children was warned that he faces jail.
Peter Belton Storr, 62, of Market Rasen Road, Dunholme, pleaded guilty for making 206 indecent images of children.
Just over 40 of the images were found to be in the most serious category of offending.
Judge Simon Hirst placed Storr on the sex offenders’ register and granted him conditional bail to await sentence on September 7.
The judge told Storr: “You have pleaded guilty to serious offences.
“I am prepared to adjourn the case for a pre-sentence report just to look at your background and your motivation and to see where we go from there.
“Please don’t think for a moment that you won’t receive an immediate custodial sentence. Custody is likely given the offences you have admitted.
“You have been convicted of a sexual offence so you must keep the police informed of your personal particulars, of the address at which you are living and any alteration of the name you are using.
“I cannot at this stage say how long the registration will be for. It depends on the sentence passed upon you.”
