A SEX offender from Selkirk has admitted at the town's sheriff court breaching his bail conditions.

Dylan Walker appeared from custody on Monday afternoon and pleaded guilty to the offence.

The 25-year-old had been released on bail from the same court a fortnight earlier after admitting possessing and distributing in decent images of children.

The hearing was told police swooped on an address in Selkirk's Chapel Street in May last year after officers were alerted to someone having uploaded "child sexual abuse material" onto the internet through Kik – a free mobile messaging app.

Walker was found to have indecent images of children, along with extreme porn, on three devices – a tablet computer and two mobile phones.

They included 30 accessible images in Category A, which is deemed to be the most severe.

Walker pleaded guilty to a total of three charges dating back to 2019 – including taking or permitting to be taken photographs or pseudo-photographs of children at his home and elsewhere.

Sheriff Janys Scott had deferred sentence until September 19 for background reports, and Walker was placed on the sex offenders register in the meantime.

At Monday's hearing for the bail breach, sheriff Peter Paterson deferred sentence until September 19 and also placed him on a night-time home curfew.
