Sex offender guilty of possessing animal porn images

Registered sex offender Keaton Coleman was back in the dock after downloading photos depicting people having sex with animals.

Coleman, of Dovehouse Mead, Barking, was given a Sexual Offences Prevention Order in January 2009 for possessing pornographic images of children.

The 25-year-old, who changed his name by deed poll, was placed on the sex offenders’ register for five years and the prevention order, which lasts 10 years, prohibits him from possessing images of children, downloading images from the internet and from accessing pornography.

On January 17 year, police went to his flat and found his computer had been used to access porn.

A later search of the computer discovered 26 photos of people having sex with animals along with photos of adults in lingerie.

Coleman pleaded guilty at Barkingside Magistrates’ Court on Thursday and was bailed to appear at Snaresbrook Crown Court on June 27 to be sentenced.
