Internet Security Threat Report 2014

A former member of 70s teenie-pop band The Bay City Rollers has pleaded guilty to charges of possessing child pornography in his home. Derek Longmuir, 48, once the drummer with the pop group and now a nurse, also admitted downloading four indecent images from the Internet. He said he did this only out of curiousity, while taking a break from studying for his degree. Longmuir denies being a paedophile. His lawyer said he was storing "the pornography for a friend who had bought it in Portugal and left it with Longmuir when he returned to the United States", according to The Guardian. He pleaded guilty to the charges, because he was aware of the indecent nature of the material when he was storing it. Police raided Longmuir's home in September 1998, following a tip-off. There they found dozens of videos and a computer containing more than 100 images of child pornography. Sentencing has been deferred until 24 March pending psychiatric and other reports. Longmuir has been released on bail. ® Related Story Singer Gary Glitter jailed for kiddie Net porn
