28-year-old man filmed himself having sex with pet dog
PERVERT Paul Charnley filmed himself having sex with his labrador dog, a court heard.
The 28-year-old father was arrested after a Metropolitan Police investigation into a suspected sex offender's email account.
Prosecutor Neil Ahuja told Stoke-on-Trent Crown Court that police recovered indecent images showing the defendant having sex with his pet dog. Charnley's camera, iPad and desktop computer were examined and he was found to be in possession of indecent images of children.
Charnley, of The Greenway, May Bank, pleaded guilty to three charges of intercourse with an animal, four charges of possessing extreme pornographic images and two charges of making indecent photos of a child.
Robert Smith, mitigating, said Charnley, who is now separated from his wife, is thoroughly ashamed.
Judge Paul Glenn sentenced the defendant to a three-year community order with supervision and a requirement to undertake the community sex offender programme.
He will be on the sex offenders' register for five years. And he must pay £530 costs.
