519 and 810
it did fall in to cat a i made a mistake it's just 810 for cat a total. an expert police officer did say to me that it's a rising crime nowadays and they deal with hundreds of cases every month now. she did say that if i get sent to st albans crown court there is a very good chance i wont go to prison and will be given an alternative punishment because they are used to this sort of crime but if i get sent to cambridge crown court there is a very good chance i will go to prison. she also said that there have been cases where people with hundreds of thousands of images ranging from all different levels didn't go to prison but it's just a matter of which court it goes to. i was just possessing and nothing more.
that's very disappointing news it's strange because literally every officer that deals with this said that there's a very good chance i won't go to prison because i was just possessing and not sharing, uploading or more etc.
okay i'm confussed because you said that the least i could expect is 8 months for pleading guilty
okay i was told that i would speak to someone at court tomorrow about the offence and was told to basically apologise and to try and assure them that it will not happen again etc. I was told to get some legal advice on what to say.
apparently i would speak to someone who would then pass the information on to the judge i think. that must be when i go to crown then. when will my crown court date be roughly?
okay so if i admit to needing help for downloading this material even though i'm not sexually aroused by it but because there's obviouslly a psychological problem for downloading it, even if it was just out of curiosity. will that be the best thing to do?
these are all very recent downloads and were bulk downloaded from a p2p network and most of the downloads were singular archives containing thousands of images and wasn't clear what was inside.
