A FATHER who is accused of seven charges related to indecent photographs of children and animals did not enter a plea at Grantham Magistrate’s Court on Wednesday.

Stephen Paddock, 44, of Cheveley Park, Grantham, is accused of making indecent photographs of children on June 3, 2011.

He is also accused of making indecent photographs of children on June 17 and 18.

Paddock also faces charges of possessing 1,928 indecent images of children and 111 extreme images involving animals.

Andrew Coley, defending, tried to use Section 11 of the Contempt of Court Act to prevent the publication of Paddock’s identity. But the Journal opposed this order and magistrate Peter Butterfield said that he could be named.

The case was adjourned for committal to crown court on May 11.

Paddock was released on conditional bail.
