A STEP-DAD who used a spy pen for his own sexual gratification has been told to expect a prison sentence.

A STEP-DAD who used a spy pen for his own sexual gratification has been told to expect a prison sentence.

The man cannot be identified to protect the identity of his step-daughter who was among the victims of his offending.

The 46-year-old was told to stay out of Huddersfield when he was granted bail by magistrates last year and he now lives at an address in Bradford.

Yesterday he pleaded guilty to two allegations of voyeurism involving two female complainants and three charges of possessing indecent photographs of children.

The man also admitted four charges relating to the making of indecent images of youngsters aged between nine and 16.

A final allegation, which was also admitted, involved the possession of hundreds of child porn images.

Judge Peter Benson, sitting at Bradford Crown Court, agreed to an application for the sentence hearing to be adjourned until May 28 and he extended the defendant's conditional bail.

But the judge told the man he must expect a custodial sentence when he returns to the crown court.
