A BARROW teenager who downloaded sick images of child abuse at a public library has had his sentencing adjourned.
Paul Brian Martindale, of Anson Street, Barrow, had previously pleaded guilty to 13 counts of making indecent images of children.
At Barrow Crown Court last Friday Judge Paul Batty said he needed more information on the images to decide the level of criminality.
The 19-year-old turned up at court with his possessions in two Poundland “bags for life” and a rucksack as he expected to be heading to jail. He was accompanied by his mother.
Martindale was caught out after he left a memory card containing indecent images of children under 16 in a public computer in Barrow Library on February 23 last year.
