Wil­liam Ste­wart de­fined as ‘Cat­e­gory A,’ the most de­praved.

So­lic­i­tor Billy Somerville said a back­ground re­port had as­sessed Ste­wart as be­ing suit­able to take part in the Tay Project, which aims to re­ha­bil­i­tate sex of­fend­ers.

“By at­tend­ing that, it may pro­tect the pub­lic in the longer term,” he sub­mit­ted.

But Sher­iff Lind­say Foulis pointed out: “There are a large amount of im­ages - and a sig­nif­i­cant pro­por­tion are at the most se­ri­ous cat­e­gori­sa­tion.

“In the cir­cum­stances, I con­sider the ap­pro­pri­ate dis­posal is cus­tody.”

The im­ages were or­dered to be for­feited.
