Pervert avoids prison over child rape movies

A pervert has avoided a prison sentence after pleading guilty to two charges of making indecent videos of a child

Security guard Paul Bonner, 51, of Tomlin Avenue, Mirehouse was handed a suspended sentence.

He was told he must register as a sex offender and complete 80 hours of unpaid community work.

The judge told the court that the sexual abuse contained on the movies was so indecent that it should not be revealed in court.
