Ardersier pervert admits downloading child abuse images

An Ardersier man who downloaded three videos and eight still indecent images of children will be sentenced next month.

Brandon Wondin, of Station Road, obtained the material with an iPhone between October 6, 2015 and January 10, 2017.

The 21-year-old admitted at Inverness Sheriff Court yesterday to downloading and possessing the images, retrieved after a police search of his home on January 10 last year.

Fiscal depute Roderick Urquhart said the combined running time of the videos was five minutes and 15 seconds.

He added that all the images – both videos and stills – featured boys estimated to be between seven and twelve years of age.
