A man has admitted downloading extreme images of women having sex with a dead fish and two live dogs onto his mobile phone.

Police raided the home of Shannon Johanson, aged 20, of Wade Meadow Court, in Northampton, on June 15, this year, seizing eight wraps on cannabis.

He was then taken to the Criminal Justice Centre, in Brackmills, where officers seized and examined his Blackberry.

Police found three “grossly offensive, disgusting or otherwise obscene” videos, including a graphic six-minute clip of a woman performing a sex act with a dead fish.

Two other video clips, lasting one minute and one minute and 50 seconds respectively, showed women having sex with dogs.

Johanson pleaded guilty to charges of possessing extreme pornographic images and possession of a Class B drug at Northampton Magistrates’ Court. He told the court his friend had sent them to his phone.

District Judge Tim Daber told him: “These convictions, as they are now, are a breach of a suspended sentence order imposed by the crown court in November last year. For that reason I am committing this case to the crown court for that breach and for these two new offences to be dealt with.”

He will be sentenced next month.
