Indecent photographer sentencing

Adjourned until next month

A photographer from Douglas who has already admitted possessing indecent images of children will be sentenced next month.

63-year-old Brian Stanley Mitchell, of Woodbourne Road, has been bailed by Deputy High Bailiff Jayne Hughes, after he appeared before her at Douglas courthouse.

His sentencing has been adjourned until 27 February, so probation reports can be prepared.

Mrs Hughes also told the prosecution she would like to see the images - all of which are the lowest level of severity - to help her determine whether he will be sentenced by her, or at the Court of General Gaol Delivery.
