A retired company director who was found with more than 250 indecent images of children, aged from four upwards, will be sentenced in February.
George Bonar, of Albany Road, Broughty Ferry, was due to find out his fate yesterday however the court was told a police cyber crime expert no longer worked in the department and information previously requested by Sheriff Alastair Brown was not available.
Police had found 112 “live” indecent still images of children aged between five and 15 and 146 “live” indecent videos of children aged between four and 16 at the home of 78-year-old George Bonar, who had paid to download them from a Canadian website.
He admitted that, on or between July 14 2012 and April 26 this year, at his home address or elsewhere unknown, he took or permitted to be taken or made indecent photographs or pseudo photographs of children.
He further admitted that on the same dates and places he possessed indecent photos or pseudo photographs of children.
Bonar is a retired company director with Dundee-based Low and Bonar, and had no previous convictions.
Sheriff Brown also ordered a clinical psychologist report, stating that the social work department and the Tay Project suspected Bonar may be a risk of reoffending unless his behaviour is addressed.
The sheriff also asked for more information to be provided on the level five images found on Bonar’s computer.
Sentence was deferred on Bonar until February 24 and his bail was continued by the sheriff.
