Hallett confessed he did have sexually explicit child images. He told officer he had received 10 to 100 images from a girlfriend of her 2-year-old. He also said they had talked about introducing the same child into the sexual relationship and oral sex was mentioned as a possible event.

Hallett also told officer he had sent a photo of his baby boy's privates to the mother.
