Troon animal porn pervert fined £2000 for ‘extreme’ images


A MAN who was caught with pornographic images of women involved in sexual activity with animals has been fined £2000.

David Baillie, of Earn Road, Troon admitted being in possession of these ‘extreme’ images on July, 3 this year at his home.

Baillie appeared before Sheriff John Montgomery at Ayr Sheriff Court last week. The court heard how officers had been issued a warrant to search Baillie’s home.

Depute Fiscal Scott Toal said: “He had images of an indecent nature. There were pictures of adult females involving dogs. 36 of these were videos and 21 were still. Mr Baillie was interviewed but made no admissions.”

Speaking on his behalf, defence solicitor, Robert Logan said: “He has been very accepting of the relevance of this matter and accepts his responsibility. He has worked since he left school.”

Sheriff Montgomery asked: “Remind me why this is not a regulatory offence?”

Mr Logan responded: “It did not used to be an offence until 2004. I do not think they want to clutter up the register with people who should not be on it.”

Sheriff Montgomery said: “It seems strange. I see from the criminal justice social work report that while searching for adult pornographic images police found 36 moving images and 21 were still.”

Baillie has been ordered by Sheriff Montgomery to pay £2000 by Wednesday, December 7.
