Clifford Starton was caught at his home in Fraserburgh last year by police acting on intelligence who then seized a phone, a PC tower and two hard drives from the property. The 39-year-old appeared at Aberdeen Sheriff Court yesterday and admitted taking or making indecent photographs of children between December 31, 2018 and August 8 last year. Fiscal depute Felicity Merson told the court that a total of 408 indecent images and videos were found. Out of those 71, as well as four videos, were classed as category A – the most serious. A further 194 images were category B, while the remaining 144 pictures were category C. Sheriff Graham Buchanan deferred sentence on Starton, of Heritage Way, Fraserburgh, until November 16 for a criminal justice social work report. He also ordered that the four electronic devices be forfeited to the Crown. Already a subscriber? Sign in [[title]] [[text]] Close This article originally appeared on the Evening Express website.
