Wigan man changes plea to admit making hundreds of indecent images of children
A Wigan man who made hundreds of indecent images of children has been given a community order.
Ian Mellor, 44, of Moor Road, Orrell, had denied making 50 of the most serious category of image (A), 102 category B and 376 category C images.
But he changed his plea to guilty at Bolton Crown Court and was sentenced to a three-year community order with rehabilitation activity requirement.
Monks was made subject to a five-year sexual harm prevention order and must pay a £400 fine and £85 victim surcharge.
