The charge of making indecent images relates to the downloading of photographs, not the production. 

The offences were committed in Eastleigh between November 14, 2020 and December 9, 2022.

Sentencing was adjourned for a pre-sentence report to be produced.

Zaidi was bailed to appear at Southampton Magistrates' Court on December 20.
