Forfar, Angus: Mark Findlater

#TheList animal porn offender Mark Findlater, born c. 1987, of Mains of Coul Cottages, Forfar DD8 3TX

Animal porn offender Mark Findlater of Forfar, Angus, Scotland

Mark Findlater was convicted in 2016 for possessing images and videos depicting sex acts between adults and dogs, cows, pigs and horses on his home computer.

Colleagues at an animal sanctuary where Findlater was working, had found a link to a bestiality website on a computer he used.

A search warrant at his home uncovered over 1,000 images and 400 videos of the sex acts. He was given a community payback order and banned from keeping animals for three years after admitting the offence, but flouted the latter restriction.

He was originally given a community payback order after he admitted possessing the extreme material between March 2011 and November 2013, but he repeatedly breached it and was warned by a sheriff he was “sorely trying” the patience of the court.

The breaches included continuing to keep animals in defiance of the ban.

Findlater’s lawyer told the court that her client recognised his failure to comply with the community order had left little option other than prison.

“Unfortunately, criminal justice feel they can no longer work with Mr Findlater and I think that decision has been made with a heavy heart,” she said.

“They really feel they are at the end of the road.”

She added: “He would be someone who would be very vulnerable in a custodial setting.

“Custody is something that frightens him, he is honest about that,” added the solicitor, who asked the court to consider a restriction of liberty order curfewing Findlater to his mother’s home.

Sheriff Murray told the accused: “When I first sentenced you I said these were horrendous offences.

“I said then that the choice was between what would be, because of the number of images, a relatively brief custodial sentence, or a lengthy community payback order.

“I think you understand a restriction of liberty order is nowhere near serious enough to deal with this, and in my mind there is no alternative to custody,” said the sheriff.

He jailed Findlater for seven months and placed him on the sex offenders’ register for 10 years.

Ali El-Aridi filmed himself chasing a sheep along the banks of Ladybower Reservoir. When he eventually caught her, El-Aridi directed an expletive-filled rant at the animal, which he recorded on his phone.

He then drove the sheep to his home city and released her into a suburban area, again filming it all as he went.

The theft, in August 2018, came to the attention of Derbyshire Rural Crime Team after members of the public who witnessed the theft from the other side of the reservoir posted what they had seen on Facebook.

Within a day the sheep had been reunited with her owner, having been rescued from the Wincobank area of Sheffield by some of the local community, and El-Aridi was identified.

Officers examined El Aridi’s phone and found the evidence he had filmed, as well as two extreme pornographic material, specifically a collage picture of images of a dead cat in various sexual acts with a man, and a video of a horse involved in oral sex with a man.

Castle Bromwich, West Midlands: Wayne Horkan

#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.

Peter Gladstone, who has also been exposed by anti-paedophile vigilantes for online grooming of young boys, formed an online relationship with another man who coerced him into having sexual activity with a dog. Gladstone then took pictures which he retained.

Gladstone admitted a charge of bestiality, committed between May 5 and June 17 2018 in his home. He also pleaded guilty to possessing extreme pornographic images of himself and the dog.

Defence solicitor Willie Young told Sheriff Gordon Fleetwood: “He had never met the man concerned. But he carried out these acts because he was coerced into committing these acts or the relationship would come to an end.

“He is sickened by his behaviour. This is a young man who has on-going needs and continuing assessment.”

Deviant with a taste for bestiality - Bryan Mills from Sunderland outside court

Animal sex images which “defy belief” were found on computer equipment belonging to Bryan Mills.

Mills had downloaded the sick bestiality stash featuring humans engaged in sexual activity with snakes, pigs, dogs and horses.

A court heard he was caught with 71 still and moving images of extreme pornography when police went to his home in Sunderland.

The 46-year-old has been spared prison but was warned about the damage such offences cause.

Judge Tim Gittins, at Newcastle Crown Court, told him: “What you must appreciate, and you don’t appear at this stage to appreciate, is although this involved adults and appears to be adults, on occasions, volunteering in this activity, the items are illegal and do untold damage, not just to the animals but to those you erroneously believe are volunteering.

“Very often adults are coerced into doing what they are doing and the images themselves give no indication of the dreadful situation they find themselves in or the damage of them knowing the images are available for viewing.

“It perpetuates the damage that people like you download and retain them.”

Mills pleaded guilty to possessing extreme pornography and was sentenced to a two year community order.

Pontlottyn, Caerphilly: Robert Gwynn

#TheList Robert Gwynn, born 04/11/1957, formerly of Merchant Street, Pontlottyn, Bargoed, Caerphilly CF81 – performed anal sex on his two Bedlington terriers

Bedlington terriers Taff and Ben were sexually abused by deviant Robert Gwynn of Pontlottyn, Caerphilly, South Wales

The dogs, named Taff and Ben, were removed from Gwynn’s care and swabs were taken. Shockingly, the swabs were found to contain traces of human DNA and dog DNA was also found to be evident on Gwynn’s penis.

A vet examined the trauma caused to the dogs and both of them received bruising to the anus.

The RSPCA said it can be ‘exceptionally difficult’ to gather evidence in cases like this but Gwynn pleaded guilty to two offences under the Sexual Offences Act and the Animal Welfare Act.

After the sentencing, Izzi Hignell, an RSPCA inspector, said: “This was a disgusting and horrific case to investigate, with this man admitting to have forcibly had anal intercourse with two Bedlington Terriers.

“These poor dogs have been subject to such a disturbing act, which would undoubtedly have proven a truly horrendous ordeal for both animals involved.

“Gaining evidence in cases of this nature can be exceptionally difficult. This man was seen penetrating one of the dogs in the anus.

“DNA results were integral to this prosecution. Swabs taken from the dog’s anuses were both found to contain human DNA, while the man had dog DNA on his penis. ”This was a truly shocking and gruesome discovery proving the sexual offence this landmark case relates to.

“This was a clear, deliberate case of sexual abuse. Fortunately, the dogs have recovered from this shameful treatment and remain in RSPCA care.

“People across Wales will be horrified that any individual would think it acceptable to commit a sexual act of any nature on their dogs. I am sickened that activity of this nature has taken place in Caerphilly.”

Sentencing: three-month suspended prison sentence; costs and charges totalling £615. Banned from keeping any animal for 10 years.

Dewsbury, West Yorkshire: Michael Smith and Gwen Kerr

#TheList Michael Smith, born c. 1953, of Princess Road, Chickenley, Dewsbury WF12 8RA, and Gwen Kerr, born c. 1962, of Queen Street, Chickenley – convicted of charges relating to sexual intercourse with a bull mastiff dog named Tank

In two separate four-minute videos Michael Smith filmed Gwen Kerr having sex with his dog – but the deviant pair walked free from court as the judge warned them ‘don’t do it again’.

Leeds Crown Court heard Smith “used and abused” Kerr before taking the video to social services in May 2016, claiming he was concerned for her welfare.

The jury heard Smith told the social worker he was worried about Kerr saying a drug dealer had been giving her amphetamines and she had been put to work as sex worker. She told him she would have to report the footage to the police. Smith denied he made two films and said he did not know how more footage got on the camcorder.

Smith denied aiding and abetting, counselling or procuring intercourse with an animal and a second charge of possessing extreme pornographic images, but was found guilty by jury after trial.

Kerr pleaded guilty to having sex with an animal.

Mark McKone, prosecuting, said: “This defendant (Kerr) effectively had sexual intercourse with a dog. Mr Smith took a video film of that dog.”

He added: “In respect of extreme pornographic images this offence carries a maximum of two years in prison.”

Mr McKone said that Smith had 10 previous convictions for 40 offences, although none of a similar nature.

Sentencing the pair, James Spencer QC said: “I’m quite satisfied that you, Michael Smith, used and abused your girlfriend Gwen Kerr to be involved in the activity.

“I am sentencing you to a 12 months’ custodial sentence, suspended for 12 months.

“Gwen Kerr, I am conditionally discharging you for 12 months. Don’t do it again.”

Smith was also told to pay a £115 surcharge and Kerr a £20 surcharge.
