Indecent images charge

A 60-YEAR-OLD Whitehaven man has appeared in court charged with uploading thousands of indecent images of children.

Peter Conaghan, of Bleng Avenue, who faces 26 separate charges, appeared before Whitehaven magistrates yesterday (Wednesday), who formally committed his case to Carlisle Crown Court.

Charges involve 18,465 still images and 187 movies, in a two-year period from May 2007 until May 2009. The ages of children involved range from two to 15. He is accused of uploading 29 still photos at level five, the most serious on the scale of one to five. The majority of the still images, 12,358, and 113 movies are at level one.

He was released on unconditional bail until his first appearance at Carlisle on November 22. No pleas have been entered.
