#TheList sexual deviant Wayne Tarot Horkan, born 10/11/1970, of Chester Road, Castle Bromwich B36 9DP – filmed his partner having sex with a dog; collected almost 2,000 images and videos depicting bestiality involving horses and dogs
Company director Wayne Horkan admitted two charges of possessing extreme pornographic images.
Police found the businessman had downloaded 1,469 still images and 210 moving ones involving sexual acts with dogs and horses. He had also used particular search terms to look for this kind of pornography.
Mr Timothy Harrington, prosecuting at Birmingham Crown Court, said the material had been downloaded between April 2014 and April 2015.
He added: “Two of the videos, it was readily apparent, involved a woman with whom the defendant had been in a relationship with.”
He continued: “He admitted he got sexual gratification from these films and had watched them on a number of occasions.”
In passing 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.”
He said he had taken into account the significant delay involved in the case and that there had been no repetition of the behaviour.
The judge said Horkan was an intelligent man who had lost “important” employment as a result of the offence but had since set up a company with a partner.
Lynette McClement, defending, said the defendant’s initial relationship with the woman had been a financial one although 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.”
She said the business he had embarked upon had every chance of being successful and employed 10 people.
Sentencing: fined fined £4,000 and ordered to pay £1,200 costs.
