Indecent images Heriot-Watt student sentenced
A Heriot-Watt University student who had about 50,000 indecent images of children on a computer has avoided a jail term at Jedburgh Sheriff Court.
Christopher Murdanaigum, 26, committed the offence at Fountainhall last year.
He was placed on the sex offenders register for two years and given a community payback order with 160 hours of unpaid work.
A not guilty plea to taking or letting indecent photographs of children be taken was accepted by the Crown.
