Hartlepool man possessed ‘disgusting’ image of person having sex with dog

A man who admits to having possessed a “disgusting” image of a person having sex with a dog must wait to learn his fate.

Ethan Foster, 20, of Norfolk Close, Hartlepool, has also pleaded guilty to three counts of making a total of 33 indecent photographs of a child.

He admitted all four offences when he appeared before Teesside Magistrates’ Court.

The case was adjourned and Foster was granted unconditional bail to return to nearby Teesside Crown Court on Tuesday, July 26, to be sentenced.
