Man admits possessing “extreme” porn – including images featuring animals

A Bradford man has pleaded guilty to pornography charges including possessing extreme images of animals.

Joseph Wilson, 41, of Stone Street, Bradford city centre, admitted three charges of making indecent photographs of categories A, B and C, one of possessing prohibited images of a child and a further charge of possessing extreme pornographic images of animals, including a dog and a pig.

Wilson admitted all the charges when he appeared before Bradford Crown Court on Wednesday via videolink from Doncaster prison.

But the court heard that Wilson disputed the number and categorisation of the images involved, as a number were duplicates simply saved in different locations.

His sentencing was adjourned until May 2 for a full pre-sentence report to be prepared.

The Recorder of Bradford, Judge Jonathan Durham Hall QC also gave approval for a psychiatrist to be hired by the the defence team in order that a report be made in time for the sentencing hearing.
