    A middle aged mum who operated a fetishist Facebook page is facing jail after she used her website to stash pornographic pictures of children.

    Julie Barnes, 57, was unmasked during a raid at her home after police linked her home address to an X-rated social media account she ran under the pseudonym “Rosie Cheek” which had 47 explicit images of youngsters aged between five and 16.

    Six of the photos on the site were in the most serious category A and all were downloaded over a three year period.

    Barnes, from Widnes, Cheshire claimed in interviews that the images were sent to her fetish page by fans between 2018 and 2021.

    While her own personal Facebook page still shows slave-themed bondage photos, it is understood that she has now deleted her fetish site.

    Barnes, speaking at Warrington Magistrates Court on 30 January, admitted five charges related to the possession of indecent photos of children.

    She will be sentenced at Liverpool Crown Court next month, potentially facing up to three years in prison.

    It was said in court that Barnes has already already been ordered to sign on the Sex Offenders' Register and prosecutors will apply for a Sexual Harm Prevention Order against her.

    Barnes, who appeared with her friend and her daughter and the aid of two walking sticks, was asked to attend an interview with investigators who decided not to arrest her at her home due to her poor health.

    According to associate prosecutor of CPS Mersey Cheshire Angela Blackmore, Barnes told investigators in her interviews that she had had no contact with children.

    Barnes was bailed with conditions preventing her from having unsupervised contact with a child under the age of 16 and making sure she does not enter into a household where any child under the age of 16 is present.

    She also has to inform the police of any internet-capable devices that she owns and has to make them available to search on request.
