London, Mar 3: A magistrate in England has reportedly been caught with a collection of extreme pornography - including images of women having sex with a gerbil and a frog.

Michael Hall, 46 - who is also a school governor and worked on a council panel to protect children - downloaded the disgusting images on to his laptop.

When police raided his home they found 230 photos and 150 videos showing women engaging in sex acts with horses, a donkey, dogs, a gerbil, a frog and a live snake.

Police acted on a tip-off after learning the magistrate, from Rotherham, South Yorks, had an account on a file-sharing website which was raising concerns. They found the filthy porn stash when they raided his home in Swinton, Rotherham, last Sep.

Hall admitted 21 specimen charges of possessing hard-core pornography when he appeared before Leeds magistrates. He was sentenced to a three-year community order, which requires him to spend 144 days completing a programme for sex offenders.

He was also ordered to pay 85 pounds towards court costs and he will be supervised by the probation service for three years.

"We have been made aware that a Swinton man has been convicted of possessing extreme pornography," The Sun quoted a Rotherham Council spokesman as saying

"The council has supported the police with their investigation and we are pleased it has reached this outcome in court. We can confirm that this individual was a governor at the three schools and was a member of the Children and Young Peopkle's Scrutiny Panel. He has already resigned from all these posts," the spokesman added.
