An Aviemore man who possessed indecent images of children aged between five years of age and 12 has been ordered to carry out 100 hours of unpaid work.
Nicholas Gardner, of Craigellachie Crescent, Aviemore, admitted the offence which took place in a house in Clava Crescent, Nairn, between October 9, 2018 and September 26, 2019.
Inverness Sheriff Court was told earlier today that there were 10 still images of girls in erotic poses and one video on an electronic device.
Sentence had been deferred on the 45 year old for a background report.
"Defence solicitor advocate Neil Wilson said: “There was no sexual gratification gained here. He shows awareness that this is not a victimless crime.
“There are no underlying issues and he knows he should not have done it.”
Sheriff Margaret Neilson also placed Gardner under one year of social work supervision.
