Murdered Crime Journalist Veronica Guerin's Brother Has Pleaded Guilty To Possession Of Child Pornography

The family say they are shocked and saddened by the news

68 year old Martin Guerin admitted having more than 900 images and over 140 movies containing child pornography at his home.

In a statement Jimmy Guerin says the family cannot understand the abhorrent behaviour his brother is guilty of.

He says he believes there should be zero tolerance in cases like this and he hopes the issue will be appropriately dealt with when it comes before the courts for sentencing in October.
