A woman whooped for joy as she walked free from court despite being caught with a ‘disgusting’ selection of animal porn.
Despite amassing a sick stash of pictures including women having sex with horses, dogs and a pig, Wendy Jones, 54 was handed a 12-month community order.
Her offences only came to light when she showed an ex-girlfriend what appeared to be a photo of a child having sex with a man, report the Liverpool Echo.
But police never discovered the image and unemployed Jones, of Blundells Drive, Moreton, Wirral, was not charged over it.
She admitted six counts of possessing animal porn between August 2012 and August 2016.
Judge Robert Trevor-Jones said: “You now have this conviction to your name, so you have lost your hitherto good character.
“These were after all quite disgusting images that you had on your laptop, extreme porn, that’s what they are.
“That sums up their rather disgusting nature… the type of activity which you were looking at.”
Liverpool Crown Court heard Jones’s former partner Kay Davies reported her to police after she showed her the disturbing photo.
Rob Jones, prosecuting, said: “The defendant was at her property and she appeared to be showing interest in images on the computer.
“She called Miss Davies over and showed her what appeared to be a photo of a young girl engaging in oral sex with an older male.
“The defendant appeared to find that amusing. Miss Davies was disgusted.”
He said Miss Davies ended their relationship and called police, who raided Jones’s home on August 22.
Officers seized an Acer laptop, which was found to contain 31 images of extreme animal porn.
Mr Jones said: “All the images involved adult females and animals. Counts one and two involve horses. The other counts involved dogs and a pig.”
Jones was arrested and made no comment, but provided a prepared statement accepting responsibility.
Mr Jones said the first two counts were highlighted because of “the likelihood of serious injury to the individual concerned”.
He added there was “evidence of internet search terms appertaining to children”, adding: “That’s a matter of some concern to the court.”
Kevin Batch, defending, said his client, who did not have any previous convictions, was an alcoholic and regularly admitted to hospital.
He said: “It’s a combination of difficulties because of the alcoholism, various ailments and the conditions that Miss Jones suffers from.
“She accepted her culpability throughout. She has never sought to blame anybody else. She is deeply ashamed and remorseful.”
Mr Batch said Jones had been in hospital for the last 12 days and would return after the hearing.
The lawyer said his client, who receives £600 a month in disability benefits, would then go home, where she would receive daily care.
He said: “She has difficulty dressing and undressing at the moment because of a shoulder issue.”
Judge Trevor-Jones handed her a 60-day Rehabilitation Activity Requirement and a 10-year Sexual Harm Prevention Order.
He said: “You have your issues, it’s quite clear. In particular a long standing and gripping alcohol problem.
“If that continues to beset you, this is the type of thing that is likely to be repeated, I suspect.”
The judge said Jones must tackle her drinking or risk coming back to court and being jailed.
He added: “That could be of even greater consequence to you than other many other people.”
