Vere, of Easton End, Basildon avoided jail at Basildon Crown Court yesterday
But the judge insisted he “must understand the impact these offences have on children.
He was charged with three counts of possessing indecent images of children, three counts of distributing indecent images of children and possession of extreme pornography.
David Baird, prosecuting, said: “He admitted the seven offences in the magistrates’ court. Police raided his home on September 6, 2020, and he was not at home so police went to his place of work and took him back to the property.
“There were a reasonably large number of images and videos of child sex abuse and a video of him sexually abusing a dog.
“Mr Vere also had a caution for a similar offence in May 2018.”
Vere was handed a two-year prison sentence, suspended for two years.
He was also ordered to complete 60 days of rehabilitation, a sex offender treatment programme and 120 hours’ unpaid work.
A sexual harm prevention order was made for ten years and he will be subject to the notification requirements of the sex offenders register for ten years.
