Man had animal and child porn pictures

A man has received a caution for possessing an explicit sexual image containing an animal and another of a child.

Kenneth Yule, 48, appeared at Sunderland Magistrates’ Court earlier this month to face one charge of possessing an extreme pornographic image.

He faced a separate charge of possessing an indecent image of a child.

At a hearing yesterday, prosecutor Lee Poppett said Yule, of Prestbury Road, Pennywell, had been cautioned by police for the offences.

Magistrates also gave Yule a 12-month conditional discharge and ordered he pay 85 court costs after pleading guilty to failing to attend court in January.
