Last updated at 14:53, Thursday, 10 April 2014
A 42-YEAR-OLD Barrow man has appeared before a court charged with 19 allegations relating to images of child abuse.
Lee Brown, from Barrow, is said to have downloaded images involving children aged between one and 12.
All of the offences against him arise from offences alleged to have been committed in the Wigton area, Carlisle Magistrates’ Court heard yesterday.
Brown, whose address was given in court as Keppelwray Drive, Barrow, faces five allegations on dates between August and November 2012 when he is accused of downloading indecent images of children aged between one-year and 12.
He is further accused of making eight indecent films of children aged between 10 and 12 between August 2011 and September 2013.
Brown is further charged with distributing indecent pictures of a six-year-old child on August 23, 2012.
Another allegation is that between August and October 2012 he published an obscene article; and that between November 27, 2008 and November 27, 2013, he downloaded four indecent photographs, both still and moving photos.
Brown was asked by the legal advisor in court if he understood the charges he faces, or whether he wanted them to be read out.
He replied that he understood the charges.
He entered no plea and District Judge Gerald Chalk declined jurisdiction, ruling that the case should be dealt with by a judge at Carlisle Crown Court.
The case is next due to be heard there on July 7.
