A Suffolk man accused of voyeurism has been ordered to sign the sex offenders’ register.

Christopher Orford, 23, of Holmes Green, Beck Row, pleaded guilty at Ipswich Crown Court on Tuesday (February 11) to two offences of voyeurism.

One of the offences took place on June 12, 2018, and the other between November 22, 2015, and July 5, 2018.

Orford is said to have recorded a female doing a private act for the purpose of obtaining sexual gratification.

Orford also admitted two offences of making indecent images of children between December 31, 2016, and July 5, 2018.

The offences relate to two still images in category B and 96 still images in category C.

Indecent images of children are graded in categories A to C with level A being the most serious category.

The court heard that Orford has no previous convictions.

Judge David Goodin adjourned sentence until the week commencing March 10 for a pre-sentence report.

He told Orford the voyeurism offences crossed the custody threshold but said it might be possible to pass a suspended prison sentence in his case.

He ordered Orford to sign the sex offenders' register on an interim basis.
