Dundee man, 23, downloaded indecent images of kids on his phone

A man who had more than 50 indecent images of children on his mobile phone had sentence deferred at Dundee Sheriff Court.

Jed Cossans, 23, of Arbroath Road, pleaded guilty on indictment to taking or making indecent images or pseudo images of children by downloading them to his phone at his home address between March 3 2016 and December 28 2016.

Fiscal depute Charmaine Gilmartin told the court that a total of 58 images were found on a Samsung mobile phone belonging to Cossans.

Sheriff Alastair Carmichael deferred sentence until February 20 for social work background reports and released Cossans on bail.

Cossans was also placed on the sex offenders register in the interim.
