A MAN sentenced for having extreme pornography including images of people having sex with animals and a decapitated corpse admitted breaching his harm prevention order. 

27-year-old Jake Stewart of Hall Park in Burneside admitted breaching the order placed on him when he was sentenced to magistrates on December 8. 

Carlisle Crown Court judge Nicholas Barker told Stewart in June: "You have, in my judgement, a perverted and deeply unhealthy interest in depraved sexual activity.” 

Stewart had admitted three counts of possessing extreme pornographic images and one count of possessing five Category C indecent child images. 

As part of his sentence Stewart had to have the prior approval of his police offender manager before he performed certain tasks on internet-enabled devices. 

Stewart admitted installing cloud-storage software Google Drive, failing to notify his manager of a Roku TV streaming device, and deleting his internet browser and its associated history. These breaches occurred between November 10 and December 7. 

He was committed to crown court for sentence in custody. His next hearing will be in Carlisle on January 5 next year. 

In the original sentence prosecutor Andrew Evans said that in June 2021 police raided Stewart's house after they became aware of indecent child images being uploaded to a device through the property's IP address. 

They seized an iPhone belonging to him with the illegal images on it. 

The judge said in his remarks: “There is evidence of Facebook searches which suggest a determined effort to obtain this depraved material… Others may have supplied it to you; but you were an entirely willing recipient of it.

“It was you, and no one else, who wanted to have this filth on your devices.

“It’s clear from what the pre-sentence report speaks of that you lack empathy towards these people, particularly children – most importantly children, who are victims of the crimes contained contained within those indecent images.

“They were exploited; they were abused, and they were victims. You need to understand that by looking at them and demanding them you propagate that abuse.”

The original sentence included a two-year community order, 30 rehabilitation activity days and a sex offender treatment programme. Stewart also had to complete 150 hours of unpaid work. He was put on the Sex Offender Register for five years.
