Yes he would plead guilty, he admits to downloading and is very sorry , he has waited about a year to be charged.
thankyou for your prompt reply, should he have a solicitor review the images to check they have all been applied correctly? or will this delay matters further for no reason? He was suprised at the level of 4 and 5 images himself, he had been block downloading with some not being viewed. Should this be put forward as mitigation in court?
He is attending a wedding and i have no way to explain his absence as you can imagine. Is there anything I can advise him in terms of solicitor? Such as one specialising in these cases that i pay for? I realise there is no defence really for this as he downloaded everything even though he may not have viewed all.
