Ask Your Own UK Law Question
Customer reply replied 7 years ago
there are no previous convictions, and the images are sex images
Solicitor: UK-Justice, Barrister replied 7 years ago
Sex with what? Another child, adult, animal?

How many images?
Ask Your Own UK Law Question
Customer reply replied 7 years ago
adult sex pictures 3-4 and naked children 1-2
Solicitor: UK-Justice, Barrister replied 7 years ago
The starting point is 6-12 months custody. IF you plead guilty you get 1/3rd off and the sentence may be suspended.

You would also go on the sex offenders register and be disqualified from working with children.
