It is alleged that on February 4 he possessed 107 banned images of children, and that between September 14, 2013, and February 5, 2016, he had 146 category A pictures of a child - the most extreme category - 361 Category B pictures of a child and 361 Category C pictures of a child, as well as one image of a person having sexual intercourse with a horse.
