The Defendant was accused of making and possessing unlawful images that were identified by Police on his home computer.
An expert from Athena examined the origins of the images and identified that they had been created as the user browsed the Internet.
During the browsing activity a number of items of malicious software had also been encountered. A review of these items by Athena experts revealed that they were likely to have caused the creation of the images.
The Police examiner agreed with this and the Prosecution case was dropped.
