Borders man in possession of indecent images of children and bestiality avoids jail

A JEDBURGH man who admitted being in possession of three videos containing indecent images of children and also extreme pornographic images involving bestiality has been placed on the Sex Offenders Register for three years.

Thirty-five-year old Roydon Brookes pleaded guilty at Jedburgh Sheriff Court to the two offences which happened at his Howden Road home Sheriff Peter Paterson said he was able to impose the alternative to custody due to the limited number of images recovered although he stressed they were of a serious nature.

Brookes was given a three year community pay back order which contains Internet supervision.
