A pensioner has appeared in court facing 12 charges of possessing indecent images of children and extreme animal pornography.
Arthur Barnes is accused of 10 counts of possessing images of children, and two of possessing pictures showing a person having sex with an animal.
Barnes, aged 65, of Martial Daire Boulevard, Brackley, was arrested in August 2011 after his wife told police she had suspicions he was interested in indecent images, Northampton Magistrates’ Court heard on Friday.
Barnes did not enter any pleas, and will appear at Northampton Crown Court later this month. He was released on bail, under the conditions that he does not access the internet or have any unsupervised contact with anyone under the age of 17.
