Shamed Durham police office suspended over child porn

12:52pm Sunday 18th November 2012 in News

 A SHAMED police officer has been suspended from duty after confessing to making and possessing indecent images of children.

 PC Christopher Little admitted six counts of making indecent images of children and one count of possessing an indecent image when he appeared at Newcastle Magistrates' Court.

 He was suspended from duty at Durham Constabulary after officers found the images on his computer and was arrested and charged by Northumbria Police.

 Little, 33, pleaded guilty to all seven charges at the hearing on November 1.




 Now his career with Durham Constabulary could be at an end as he faces a misconduct hearing.

 The PC, who was based at Peterlee Police Station in County Durham, will be subject to a fast-track hearing which will take place before his next court appearance.

 Little, of Manor Drive, Benton, North Tyneside, will next appear at Newcastle Magistrates' Court on November 21 for sentencing reports to be prepared.

 A Durham Police spokeswoman said: "Christopher Little is a Peterlee officer and is suspended from duty.

 "Following his guilty plea he is to be the subject of a fast-track special case hearing which will take place before his next court appearance."



 It is believed that Little lived with his partner, but is now living with his parents.

 Neighbours living on the street said the family kept themselves to themselves and that an elderly couple lived at the property.

 One woman, who asked not to be named, said: "An older couple live there.

 "They have grandchildren.

 "I haven't seen the son at the house so I don't know a lot about him."

 A Northumbria Police spokeswoman said: "Christopher Little, 33, from Benton, North Tyneside, was charged with six offences of making indecent images of children and one of possessing indecent images of children.

 "He appeared at Newcastle Magistrates' Court on Thursday November 1."

 Little declined to comment when approached.
