A BROMSGROVE fitness instructor who ran sessions at the Dolphin Centre has been found guilty of having indecent images of children on his computer.
Alexander Milicev, of Parkwood Road, was convicted following a trial over three charges, relating to the 221 photographs.
The 29-year-old was also found guilty of possessing five indecent videos of children, along with four extreme pornographic photos and three further films involving animals.
The charges related to offences which took place between April 22, 2012 and August 13, 2013.
Milicev, also known as Sander, pleaded not guilty and, defending him, Mr Pendle said he did not accept the charges but respected the court’s decision.
He then requested the magistrates bare in mind his cooperation throughout the case.
Milicev was handed a 36-month community order with a 36-month supervisionary requirement and he was told to undertake a sex offender group programme.
Magistrates also placed a five-year Sexual Offenders Order on him and told Milicev to sign the Sex Offenders Register for five years.
He was told he could not have any unsupervised contact with females under 16 except in the presence of the child’s parent or guardian or another appropriate adult.
Milicev was also banned from using any device capable of accessing the internet unless it could retain and display the history and he could make it available on request for inspection by police.
He was also ordered not to have any software or hardware wiping utilities installed on any computer he had access or control over.
Milicev was told to pay £620 in costs and a victim surcharge of £60.
Following the verdict, The Standard alerted Wychavon Leisure Trust, which runs the Dophin Centre, to the convictions.
A spokeswoman for the organisation said: “Mr Milicev is a freelance personal trainer who is not employed by Wychavon Leisure who occasionally used the facilities.
“In light of his conviction which we were previously unaware of, Mr Milicev will no longer be allowed to access the Dolphin Centre.”
