Man admits to possessing nearly 900 indecent images of children


A 53-year-old man has admitted to possessing nearly 900 indecent images of children.

Ian Martyn Le Gallais pleaded guilty to three offences in the Royal Court on Friday.

He admitted to having 333 images of the most serious ‘Category A’ indecent images, including 56 videos; 336 ‘Category B’ indecent images, including 22 videos; and 224 ‘Category C’ indecent images. All the images and videos were of children under 16.

The offences took place between 22 January 2019 and 1 January 2020.

Le Gallais was remanded in custody until 12 March, when he will be sentenced by the Inferior Number of the Royal Court. 

His lawyer, Advocate Julian Gollop, did not make a bail application but asked for a psychological report to be prepared, which Deputy Bailiff Robert MacRae, who was sitting with Jurats Olsen and Blampied, ordered.

As he has pleaded guilty, Le Gallais was immediately added to the Sex Offenders’ Register.
