Indecent Imagery (IIC)

Experts in the analysis and extraction of Indecent Imagery from all media devices

Unfortunately, indecent imagery, also known as IIC or Indecent Images of Children is becoming more prevalent. Being accused of a sexual offence undoubtedly has devastating consequences.  Society’s view of these offenders is such that the presumption of being innocent until proven guilty often seems in reality to be reversed.

Most cases of this type result from the discovery of indecent pictures or images of children on a computer.  There are many reasons why pictures of this type may come to be on a computer unintentionally.  Often the origins of Indecent Imagery (IIC) found via computer forensics are not fully investigated by the prosecution, which may result in a person being wrongly accused or worse, convicted.

  • Possession of Indecent Pictures of Children
    (S.160 of the Criminal Justice Act 1988)

Statutory defences

We understand the statutory defences to these offences (where they exist) and we are also cognisant of the applicable stated cases (e.g. R v Land [1998], R v Bowden [2000], R v Oliver, Hartrey and Baldwin [2002], R v Porter [2006]).  The possibility of malware, pop ups and other internet related threats being involved in the delivery of indecent images can also be investigated.
