My son lent his laptop to a friend who is a muslim lady and she reported to police that he had teen images on his laptop. Police cam to his hotel where he was staying alone at 5.30am and suggested he accompany him. He was put in a cell and they drove 1hour to his house in a DIFFERENT police force region. They took his current and old mobiles as well as keeping laptop. He has held to past midday and bailed to 31st Jan. The lady was his gf but said he was a colleague as he works for a government dept in education this made situation worse. (he is purely office based) He is of very sound good character. Help please worried Dad. I dont know exactly what images are other than my son said teen but not paid for images of legal 18 + but maybe acting younger I know this is important exactly what they are but he has not purchased as underage from site or someone.
yes he went with Police as i stated to Police Station and was interviewed
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?
yes I advised to contacted his union in case they contact his employer and that could be serious
I confirm to my knowlege the images are not of under 18 year olds
