Phone porn sentence u-turn

"A TAXI driver who ended up with a criminal conviction after his mate sent a film of animal porn to his mobile phone has won his fight against a 100-hour unpaid work order.

BAS, 39, Shevington, “did nothing to solicit” the illegal movie and tried to delete it from his phone, but his lack of technological know-how let him down, a London hearing was told.

Having thought he was rid of the illegal bestiality image, he went on to download music to his PC from his phone - along with the extreme porn film.

The image was discovered by police in May last year and he was arrested and his computer seized.

He pleaded guilty to possession of an extreme pornographic image at Liverpool Crown Court in August."
