A Northamptonshire man appeared in front of magistrates today facing multiple charges of making, distributing and possessing child abuse images.
Joshua Lee, 29, of Bengal View, Greens Norton in Towcester entered no plea to all of the 20 charges, which date back to 2007.
Lee is alleged to have made indecent videos and images of children under the age of 13 and to have possessed 1,170 ‘extreme’ sexual images.
One of the charges alleges Lee made an indecent video involving a child under 16 and an animal. He was bailed on the condition he does not have any unsupervised contact with anyone under the age of 18.
Lee is to reappear at Northampton Crown Court on May 23 for a second hearing.
