Rainham man avoids jail for owning obscene film
A school caretaker from Rainham who was caught with a DVD of beastiality has been spared jail by a judge.
Terrance Fisher, from Abbots Close, had brought the obscene film, entitled Animal Pleasure, home from a trip to Spain, Chelmsford Crown Court was told.
Judge Anthony Goldstaub QC said the material was “disgusting.”
He added anyone who witnessed the material would feel “sullied and disturbed” – but went on to spare Fisher jail.
