Ex-Bay City Roller Derek Longmuir has escaped jail over possession of Web child porn. The former drummer with the tartan-clad 70s band was given 300 hours' community service on Friday at Edinburgh Sheriff Court. Longmuir pleaded guilty to two charges of having indecent photographs, videos and computer disks of children at his home. He also admitted making indecent photos of children. The material was seized during a police raid on the Old Roller's home. The haul included 22 videos, 40 computer disks with 117 images of indecent material, some showing sex involving children. Longmuir, who has been suspended from his job as a nurse at Edinburgh Royal Infirmary, claimed the material belonged to an American friend. See Ex-Bay City Roller found with kiddie porn

Peter Cartwright, the ex-magistrate who bombarded another JP with a torrent of abusive emails, got off more lightly. Cartwright received a twelve-month conditional discharge for the hate mail. He also got one year's probation for another crime of failing to declare earnings, and was ordered to pay costs totalling £760. See
