A 34-year-old man from Market Harborough has been charged with possessing and distributing indecent images of children.

Robin Maughan is also charged with taking indecent photographs of children and inciting children to distribute an indecent image of themselves.

Maughan appeared at Leicester Magistrates Court earlier this month, on December 10, where he was granted conditional bail by the magistrates.

He is now due to appear at Leicester Crown Court on January 7.

Maughan will face eight charges altogether.

There are three charges of possessing indecent images of children and three charges of distributing indecent images of children.

There is also one charge of taking indecent photographs of children and one charge of inciting children to distribute indecent images of themselves.

The charges relate to the possession and distribution of images of children at levels A,B and C.

Level A is the most serious level of image.

The charges all relate to a period of time between December last year and June this year.

The charge relating to taking indecent photographs of children relates to a shorter period of time, between February and May this year.

All eight charges say the offences occurred “at Market Harborough”.
