Also discovered were Skype conversations between the defendant and another person showing that Aylmer had shared images with the recipient and the recipient made the remark “I wish I could see something like that for real.”
It was also discovered that Aylmer had deleted his internet history which was not only a breach of his Sexual Offences Prevention Order but also made it difficult to determine the exact origin of the images, the court was told.
It was later identified that the images came from a memory stick plugged into the computer. However the memory stick had never been found. A further search of Mr Aylmer’s home was carried out and he was interviewed but exercised his right to say “no comment.”
