A pervert from Hornchurch has pleaded guilty to multiple offences including possessing more than 300 pornographic images of a person performing sexual acts with animals and causing a child to look at indecent images.
James Farina, 39, from West Malling Way admitted to committing several serious offences including possession of 315 pornographic images which showed a person performing acts of intercourse with live animals, at Snaresbrook Crown Court this morning (Tuesday, August 28).
Wearing a dark blue suit with a red tie, Farina pleading guilty to six counts, except for one where he pleaded guilty to attempting, but not guilty to causing a child to watch a sexual act.
The crown accepted this plea as the 15-year-old’s identity was never established or traced.
Judge Caroline English told Farina: “These are clearly very serious matters. You can expect to receive a custodial service for them.”
Farina admitted six counts including causing a child under the age of 13 to look at an indecent image, engaging in sexual communication with a child, attempting to arrange a sexual activity with an 11-year-old, making indecent photographs of a child, attempting to arrange a sexual activity with a 15-year-old and for possessing 315 extreme pornographic images which portrayed in an explicit and realistic way a person performing acts of intercourse with live animals.
He was remanded in custody and is due to be sentenced at Snaresbrook Crown Court on Tuesday, October 9.
