Nurse accused of possession/distribution of indecent images of children

19 November 2009

We represented a nurse who had been bailed by police concerning allegations of possession/distribution of indecent images of children. The nurse had previously been represented by another firm of solicitors and had made admissions in her interview. Although the CPS decision was to charge we were able to negotiate the client to accept a police caution which had far less serious consequences for her in terms of notification under the Sex Offenders Register and avoiding a possible custodial sentence.
