Indecent photographs or images

This offence is broken down into categories of seriousness, starting from level one to level five, with level five being the most serious. It is important to understand the different levels to this offence and also to understand that possession for personal use is less serious that the making or distribution of these types of images.

Therefore, it is really important to have a solicitor with you during questioning who can guide you through the process using their knowledge of this difficult area of criminal law.

If you are being questioned about indecent images or photographs, call 03330 096 275 for assistance as soon as possible.

Using a solicitor as early on in the process as possible will give you the best chance of advancing a positive defence or presenting some level of mitigation.

Whilst traveling on my motorcycle and stationary at a roundabout I placed my foot on the road in order to stabilise my motorcycle, a third party vehicle squeezed past my motorcycle and in the process squashed me between the motorcycle and the car. I suffered a serious injury to my left ankle resulting in a fracture and requiring surgical treatment. I was off work for many months. I was recommended to Ashmans Solicitors through one of their previous clients. They pursued my case and to my horror the third party driver denied liability. As a result of Ashmans pro-active approach and investigative nature they managed to provide documentary evidence which confirmed that the third party driver was at fault for my injury. As a result of the complex nature of my injury and the long term effect on my livelihood they have been successful in obtaining a number of interim payments in support of my claim. Throughout the claims process they have been friendly, easily accessible and have kept me informed throughout the whole process. They have helped me to apply for benefits for which I had no knowledge of and without the assistance of Ashmans solicitors I would have suffered more than just my physical injury. I would recommend anyone to seek the assistance of Ashmans solicitors should they have the misfortune of being involved in an accident.
