A man due to be sentenced for looking at child abuse images was given an extra month to get a lawyer.

Harry Campbell, 21, pleaded guilty at the magistrates’ court last month to possession of almost 1,000 indecent images of children in categories A, B and C. He also admitted having one prohibited image of a child.

The collection was amassed between July 2017 and April 2020.

On Thursday, prosecutor Kellie Enever told Oxford Crown Court that Campbell was unrepresented – and suggested that, because he was looking at a prison sentence, the judge might want to put the case back for the man to get a lawyer.

Adjourning sentence until February 11, Judge Michael Gledhill QC said: “I don't want you not to realise the jeopardy you are in. You may be 21, you may be of good character but these offences are very serious.”

Campbell, of Macaulay Road, Rugby, appeared in court wearing a black suit.
