Man Who Filmed Partner Having Sex With Dogs Fined £4,000
A man who filmed his girlfriend having sex with his dogs has been fined £4,000.
Businessman Wayne Horkan, 48, appeared in Birmingham Crown Court last Friday where he was charged with two counts of possessing extreme pornographic images.
When police raided his home, they found 1,469 still images and 210 moving ones, involving sex acts with dogs and horses, Birmingham Live reports.
The incidents took place in 2014 and 2015, during which time Horkan also used specific search terms to find pornography such as this.
Appearing in court he plead to the charges. He was handed a £4,000 fine and ordered to pay £1,200 in court costs.
Prosecutor Timothy Harrington said: "Two of the videos, it was readily apparent, involved a woman with whom the defendant had been in a relationship with.
"He admitted he got sexual gratification from these films and had watched them on a number of occasions."
While handing down his sentence, Judge Melbourne Inman QC said: "Between 2014 and 2015 you downloaded imagery which it is not necessary to detail again, which are abhorrent.
"Two of them involved a lady whom you were living with which is an aggravating feature.
"There is no suggestion at all this was anything other than consensual adult behaviour."
The judge added that Horkan was an 'intelligent man' who had lost 'important employment' as a result of the offence, but has since gone into business with a partner.
He said he had taken into account a 'significant delay' involved in bringing the case to court and said there had been no repetition of his previous behaviour.
Lynette McClement, defending, told the court Horkan's relationship with the woman - who has not been named - had initially been a financial one, but that had changed.
She said: "In the course of that relationship his interest in extreme pornography was limited to that timescale. This was a shared interest."
The court also heard Horkan employed 10 people and that his business had a good chance of success.
