A MAN from Gloucestershire has admitted possessing explicit videos of a person engaged in a sex act with a horse and possessing indecent images of children.

David Sutton, aged 59, of Melody Way, Longlevens, Gloucester, pleaded guilty to the offences at Cheltenham Magistrates' Court on Friday, April 21.

The court heard that Sutton had two videos of extreme pornography which showed a person engaged in an act of intercourse with a horse.

According to the court register, the videos 'portrayed, in an explicit and realistic way, a person performing an act of intercourse with a live animal, namely a horse, and which was grossly offensive, disgusting or otherwise of an obscene character and a reasonable person looking at the image would think that any such person or animal was real'.

Sutton also had indecent images of children - namely 12 category A images, nine at category B and 27 at category C.

He admitted four charges all committed between July 20, 2021 and April 6, 2022 in Longlevens.

For each offence, a 26-week prison term suspended for 24 months was imposed.

A 24-month community order was also imposed with rehabilitation appointments and a sexual harm prevention order was imposed for five years.

Sutton must also pay a £128 victim surcharge plus £85 in costs.
