A SICK pervert who downloaded an ‘utterly grotesque’ film of a woman having sex with a dog, plus hundreds of indecent images of children, has been locked up for 12 months.

Serial child porn fiend Christopher Corke, 66, was caught by public protection officers who were monitoring him after he was convicted of identical offences in 2005 and 2008.

Sheffield Crown Court heard he downloaded 1,332 indecent images and 15 videos including the bestiality film at his home in The Croft, Hoylandswaine, Barnsley.

Jailing him, Judge Peter Kelson QC said he’d been given two chances but was unable to control his addiction.

He described the video featuring the woman and dog as “utterly grotesque” and heard that some of the images featured children as young as four.

He told Corke: “You have lost your family, they have severed all links with you, and I fear the time has come when a prison sentence is the only appropriate course.”

Elizabeth Martin, prosecuting, said in 2005 Corke admitted 43 offences at Barnsley Magistrates’ Court and was given a three year community rehabilitation order.

In September 2008 he admitted 16 further similar offences and was again given a three year community supervision order – due to run out this September.

Miss Martin told the court: “It is because of those offences that the public protection unit sex offender management service was in regular contact with the defendant.

“Officers attended at his home and became aware he was again accessing the internet.”

On two computers they found 1,303 images with the least serious rating of grade one, 12 grade two images, 15 grade three images and two images given the most serious rating of grade five.

There were also 10 grade one videos, two grade two videos, and one grade three video as well as the “extreme” bestiality.

Corke said he downloaded the images for his own gratification and “just couldn’t be trusted” to have internet access in private.

He admitted possessing an indecent image of a child, making indecent images of children, and possessing an extreme pornographic image.
