Richard Tasker, 41, of Oakes who was found guilty of possessing child porn at Kirklees Magistrates’ Court on Friday
“… on the morning of September 23, West Yorkshire Police officers raided the defendant’s home where he was a lodger and seized a laptop on which the offending material was found.”
“he … described himself as a “pansexual male” – someone who is not limited in sexual choice with regard to biological sex, gender, or gender identity.”
“… his defence that he had been hacked was “implausible” as only he had access to his computer.”
“The bench sentenced him to 26 weeks’ imprisonment for each of the two charges to run concurrently.”
“At today’s hearing the court heard he was interviewed by the Probation Service and he “showed no remorse at any time”.
Sentencing him the chairman of the bench, John Webster, stressed “the very young age of the children in the photographs”.”
