29 Mar Local vicar Peter Low admits to child sex abuse images charges
An Essex vicar has been charged with downloading sex abuse images of children, having previously denied the charges he today admitted to the offences at Chelmsford Crown Court.
Peter Low, 64, from Heybridge in Essex, was arrested and charged with three counts of possession of indecent images of children.
Speaking following the admiration in court this morning a spokesman for NSPCC said: “Possessing and sharing images of abuse is child abuse full stop and behind every indecent image is a young victim who will need support to recover.
“We must never forget that children have been seriously abused to create these vile images and the crushing effects will be life-changing.
“The NSPCC wants to see a specialist digital child abuse unit in every police force, trained to deal with sexual and other online offences against children.”
Low will be back before Chelmsford Crown Court on Tuesday, May 2 for sentencing.
