Shahida Parveen, of the Crown Prosecution Service, told the court that there was a link between the indecent image charges faced by Ben Lewis and the later charges faced by the four defendants. She said it made sense for all charges to be heard at the same time.
The magistrates agreed and the case will be heard at St Albans Crown Court on October 23. Ben Lewis was remanded in custody. The other three defendants were bailed.
