Huddersfield man admits to having images of child sexual abuse and animal sex 

A man has appeared in court after a police tip-off led to dozens of sick child porn and animal sex images being discovered on his computer.

Police raided the home of Jason Neary, of Howden Close in Cowlersley.

They had received information that the 30-year-old had indecent images for sharing.

The officers executed a search warrant and seized his computer.

On it they found 66 extreme pornographic films and two still images.

These portrayed a person performing sexual acts with a horse and dog.

These were said to be grossly offensive, disgusting or of an obscene manner.

Neary also had in his possession 18 indecent films of children classed as category A.

This is at the top of the scale of indecent images and involves penetrative sexual activity.

In addition officers discovered nine indecent films of children at category B, involving non-penetrative sexual activity.

There were 11 images and nine films of children falling under category C, which are images not covered by the other two categories.

An extreme pornographic film involving a child was also found during the search.

The offences are dated between January 2014 and March this year although the ages of the children involved are not known.

Neary appeared at Kirklees Magistrates’ Court on Thursday where he pleaded guilty to three charges of possessing an indecent image and one charge of making an indecent image.

He admitted to a further offence of possessing an extreme pornographic image portraying a sexual act with an animal.

District Judge Michael Fanning committed him to Leeds Crown Court for sentence.

He ordered a pre-sentence report ahead of his case being heard on August 11.

Judge Fanning placed Neary on the Sex Offenders’ Register and he must now register his personal details with police.

He was also banned from having any unsupervised contact with a child aged under 16.
