A Scottish victim of the Dangerous Pictures law had a pictures so extreme that police officers were banned from analysing it on health and safety grounds, a court has heard.
Thomas Aitken was caught with the images, some of which featured bestiality, when police raided his home at Bryson Street in 2013.
Aitken pled guilty to having 13 illegal porn images on his computer at an earlier hearing and appeared at Dumbarton Sheriff Court for sentencing.
Fiscal depute Isobel Martin whined:
From a health and safety point of view of the police officers preparing these reports, it was felt that it could be harrowing enough to view but to sit down and detail what each photograph contained would be simply too much.
Sheriff Gallacher warned the victim Aitken that accessing porn of the type he did was not a 'victimless crime'.
The sheriff sentenced Aitken to 100 hours of unpaid work and ordered that he is supervised for 15 months.

This story really strains credulity!. Bestiality isn't my cup of tea (or nosebag of fodder???) and I've only come across it two or three times in my life. About forty years ago, at a Round Table meeting, I remember a guy passing round a pack of mucky
playing cards in which the jokers involved equine participation. I also recall scenes in two of the 1980s Italian mainstream porn films starring Karin Schubert, Osceno and Poker di Donne, in which a minor character showed unusual affection for the family
mutt. (The fragrant Frau Schubert herself has signed a contract which stipulated, like a fifties landlady, no blacks and no dogs -- and no blokes in the back way, either.)
Reaction each time? Embarrassed laughter! I can't believe that McPlod isn't allowed to watch because it will upset his equilibrium.
