Frog’s Porn Found On Magistrate’s Laptop

Frog’s Porn Found On Magistrate’s Laptop – The Sun

A Magistrate has narrowly avoided jail after being caught with a collection of extreme pornography — including images of women having sex with a gerbil and a FROG.

Michael Hall, 46 — who is also a school governor and worked on a council panel to protect children — downloaded the disgusting images on to his laptop computer.

When police raided his home they found 230 photos and 150 videos showing women engaging in sex acts with horses, a donkey, dogs, a gerbil, a frog and a live snake.

Police acted on a tip-off after learning the magistrate, from Rotherham, South Yorks, had an account on a file-sharing website which was raising concerns.

They found the filthy porn stash when they raided his home in Swinton, Rotherham, last September.

Hall admitted 21 specimen charges of possessing hard-core pornography when he appeared before Leeds magistrates.

He was sentenced to a three-year community order which requires him to spend 144 days completing a programme for sex offenders.

He was also ordered to pay £85 towards court costs and he will be supervised by the probation service for three years.

Hall became a magistrate in 2007 and served until October last year when he fell foul of the law.

He was a governor at three schools in Rotherham, St Thomas CofE Primary in Kilnhurst, Swinton Fitzwilliam Primary School and Swinton Community School in Mexborough.

He was also a member of the Rotherham Council’s Children and Young People’s Scrutiny Panel which is made up of councillors and lay members.

Hall helped scrutinise the council’s work in relation to policies and procedures affecting young people such as how children in care are looked after and anti-bullying strategies.

Sally Sharp, head of West Yorkshire Crown Prosecution Service rape and serious sexual offences unit, said: “This case is particularly repugnant involving multiple charges of possessing extreme pornographic images.

“The fact that the defendant was a magistrate and in a position of trust is additionally an aggravating feature.

“The conviction sends out a clear message that no-one is above the law.”

A Rotherham Council spokesman said: “We have been made aware that a Swinton man has been convicted of possessing extreme pornography.

“The council has supported the police with their investigation and we are pleased it has reached this outcome in court.

“We can confirm that this individual was a governor at the three schools and was a member of the Children and Young Peopkle’s Scrutiny Panel.

“He has already resigned from all these posts.”
