Porn user caught with photograph of woman having sex with octopus

A bloke has been jailed after being caught with a photograph of a woman having sex with an octopus.

Police found the weird image when they busted Eric Worthington for downloading child abuse material and dozens of videos of bestiality.

He had 2,378 child abuse images or movies, some showing toddlers being raped by adults on a laptop,phone, USB stick and DVDs.

The van driver used a special browser to download extreme images from the dark web which included one showing a woman with an octopus on her bottom.

Search terms showed he had trawled the internet for bestiality websites and for hard core images of pre-teen girls.

Most of his collection showed children aged two to four. Others showed children having sex with dogs.

Worthington, aged 58, of Old Exeter Road, Newton Abbot, admitted three counts of making indecent images of children and one of possessing extreme pornography which depicted adults having sex with dogs or an octopus and which were “grossly offensive,disgusting and obscene”.

He was jailed for a year, suspended for two years and ordered to attend a 60 day treatment programme, do 140 hours unpaid community work, and pay £350 costs by Judge David Evans at Exeter Crown Court.

He was put on the sex offenders' register for 10 years and made subject to a Sexual Harm Prevention Order, which enables police to monitor his internet activity, for the same period.

Mr Brian Fitzherbert, prosecuting, said Worthington's home was raided in December last year and 2,378 illegal images or movies of children on different devices.

They included 565 in the most serious category.

He used a Tor browser to access the dark web and installed evidence elimination software, although there was no evidence he had used it.

Mr Fitzherbert said:"The age range of the children was one to 14 but most were aged two to four. The extreme images largely involved dogs but there was one of a woman with an octopus in her anus."

Worthington told police he had no sexual interest in children but was drawn in by the allure of “forbidden fruit”.

Mr Martin Salloway, defending, urged the judge to follow the suggestion of a probation report which said Worthington was socially isolated at the time he downloaded the images.

He is ashamed of what he did, accepts it was wrong and is keen to attend a course to change his behaviour.
