Alex Watts : Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
Alex Watts : For now please let me know whether the person has been interviewed etc?
yes he went with Police as i stated to Police Station and was interviewed
Alex Watts : Ok. Has he been charged?
Alex Watts : what is it you want to ask of me about this please and I will try to help?
Alex Watts : if the images are not of children or involving animals it is not an offence.
Alex Watts : people watch and have access to porn all the time - that is not illegal.
Alex Watts : It is only where the images are indecent, ie the above is it an offence
what steps should he take and do you feel they overreacted and crossing another forces border to go to his house was that in order?
Alex Watts : if there was a suspected offence then there is no issue with another force investigating. Given the nature of the allegation it is only right that it was investigated
Alex Watts : however he does not need to do anything. I imagine he was bailed to come back whilst they consider the matter
Alex Watts : The laptop will probably be examined.
Alex Watts : but he can not do anything else at this point,
Alex Watts : Can I clairfy anything for you about this today please?
yes I advised to contacted his union in case they contact his employer and that could be serious
Alex Watts : Ok. I would contact the Union as they may be able to represent if he has that cover
I confirm to my knowlege the images are not of under 18 year olds
Alex Watts : Then it will be ok. As I said people look at porn all the time
Alex Watts : As long as no children or animals or torture etc, it will be ok
Alex Watts : But regular porn is ok
