Livingston OAP who had pics of kids being raped and bestiality porn dodges jail

A perverted pensioner who had hundreds of pictures of children being raped and abused as well as hardcore bestiality porn has dodged jail.

John Green, 68, admitted possessing “extreme” indecent images of kids on his computer.

The OAP’s sickening haul, found at his home in Livingston, included videos of adults having intercourse with animals.

He had a total of 326 “extreme” pornographic images and six videos, some of them featuring sickening sexual assaults causing injury to people.

Green also had more than 2,000 indecent images of children on his computer, including 410 in category ‘A’ – the most serious showing children being raped or sexually penetrated.

Police found a further 501 images in category ‘B’ and 1,204 in category C’.

In addition, the hard disc contained videos showing children being sexually abused two of the films in category ‘A’ and one in category ‘B’.

Green, a first offender, pled guilty to downloading the indecent images at his West Lothian home between November 28, 2019, and January 6, 2020.

He was not required to appear at court for sentence because social workers recommended a community-based alternative to a prison sentence.

Sheriff Martin Edington put the accused under supervision for three years under a community payback order and said his name would remain on the sex offenders’ register for the same length of time.
