I was arrested 4 months ago indecent photographs

Customer Question

Hi, i was arrested 4 months ago for possesing indecent photographs of a child and distribution of indecent photos, my phone and laptop siezed, theres nothing on the laptop at all, but on my phone theres about 50 pictures, the girls is not naked in 95 percet of them but isnt fully clothed and in the other 5 percent her below area is out, at the time she sent these she was 15 and i was 17, i uploaded one of these photos to facebook for 30 seconds and then deleted it, its very stupid and im extremely sorry, the reason i did this was because towards the end of our relationshop she made me extremely depressed, ive been depressed all my life but it got worse towards the end of high school, i missed 75 percent of year 11 because of it, i didnt go to college at all because of it and im on the sick, she knew about this and seemed to care until about 3 months before we split up, after that she started lying non stop, promising to be there for me and just ignored me when i really neaded her the most, i self harmed because of her and my depressed just got worse, thats the reason i uploaded the picture, i never actually asked for the pictures she sent me though but they did save to my phone as the application we spoke on automatically saved the photos to my phone, ive only been out of my house 3 times in the last 4 months because of my depression, once to the police station when i was arrested, once to the doctors and ill be going out my third time this friday when i return to the police station where they will either charge me or do otherwise, i have no previous convictions and before this i had never been arrested in my life, ive been a very shy but good kid until depressed messed me up, im just scared about getting charged when i go back on friday, even though i feel she made me do this im still so sorry for it, its not like me at all and im so surprised i did it.
