Heaton pervert found with extreme porn showing women with animals

A pervert dad was caught with a seedy stash of extreme pornography, which showed women having sex with animals.

Police found the sick collection of more than 100 videos and images on Mark Baty’s laptop when they searched his Heaton home.

The married 43-year-old initially claimed it was “just normal adult porn” but then admitted to officers it was extreme and that he watched it when his wife and children were in bed, a court heard.

Prosecutors said 104 films and pictures were found on Baty’s Toshiba laptop after it was seized and sent for digital forensic examination in June this year.

Now, Baty, of Heaton, Newcastle, has pleaded guilty to one count of possessing extreme pornography during a hearing at North Tyneside Magistrates’ Court.

Keith Laidler, prosecuting, said police executed a search warrant on Baty’s home on June 28 and seized his laptop, which was found in the main bedroom.

“It was taken back to the police station and a digital investigator conducted an examination on the laptop and produced a report,” said Mr Laidler.

“In it, he details what was recovered and he found 104 images of an extreme pornographic nature.

“It was both images and videos and they depicted adult women in penetrative sex with various animals.”

In interview, Baty initially claimed it was “normal adult porn”, that he downloaded by turning off the web safety on his laptop before turning it back on again.

Mr Laidler added: “The defendant said he did it once his wife and children had gone to bed. He said he watched it alone.”

Magistrates adjourned the case for the preparation of a Pre-Sentence Report and released Baty on bail to next appear in the same court on November 2.
