He is charged, on the authority of the CPS, with eight offences of making a total of 92 indecent images of children.

72 are classified as category C (the least serious level of image), 16 as category B, and 4 as category A The alleged offences involved the use of his home computer equipment, and there was no use of Surrey Police systems.
