Alister Mollison, 67, from Washington, outside Sunderland Magistrates Court where he pleaded guilty to possessing pornographic images featuring animals.

THIS pervert pensioner was caught with a stash of hundreds of sick animal porn films in his home.

Alister Mollison, of Elliott Terrace, Washington, owned more than 600 movies which featured men and women carrying out depraved sex acts with dogs, cats, horses and even eels.

Ponies, pigs and donkeys also featured in the explicit material.

Prosecutor Rachael Dodsworth told Sunderland Magistrates’ Court that on March 8, officers from Northumbria Police went into 67-year-old Mollison’s former home in Collingwood Court, Sulgrave.

Detectives from the Hi-Tech Crime Unit seized the footage to carry out analysis before charging the former chemical plant worker.

Ms Dodsworth said: “There they found a huge quantity of DVDs, video cassettes and recording equipment.

“Among the items seized were 1,468 movies. Of those, 661 depicted extreme pornography.

“They were in the form of adult bestiality involving dogs, horses, ponies, cats, goats, eels, donkeys and fish.”

Mollison, originally from Scotland, was then arrested by officers.

“He apologised and said he would be happy to forfeit the material,” added Ms Dodsworth.

Defending Mollison, who pleaded guilty to possession of extreme pornography at an earlier hearing, solicitor Gerry Armstrong told magistrates he lived alone for some years since the breakdown of his marriage.

He added that he had to give up work due to illness and has also had problems with depression and alcohol.

Mr Armstrong said: “You have read in the report that Mr Mollison is a solitary person, a man who has worked hard all of his life in the chemical industry.

“He then came from Scotland to this part of the world by himself. He has little or no hobbies.

“It would appear that these items he has probably had in his possession for 15 years at least.”

He added: “There is no suggestion that he has downloaded them from internet sites or shown them to anyone else.

“Perhaps it has come as a blessing that the police found them.

“This is a man more to be pitied than punished.

“What we have is a man who has nobody to turn to.”

Sentencing Mollison, chairman of the bench Mr Richardson decided to impose a 12-month community order on him, with supervision.

He was also ordered to pay £85 costs.

“It is rather upsetting from various aspects,” said Mr Richardson.

“The bench feel that you need some help.

“You have a led a solitary, lonely life for the last 25 years.

“We hope that the Probation Service can help you.”
