In 2000, Longmuir was sentenced to 300 hours community service after admitting possessing child pornography. Due to the controversy, he was fired from his job at the Infirmary although he was later readmitted to the nursing register. Despite his guilty plea, he maintained that the offending materials did not belong to him but were left behind by an acquaintance. Longmuir said he pleaded guilty in hope of avoiding a "media circus".
