A SOUTH Croydon man accused of possessing extreme pornographic images of bestiality with a dog and an indecent image of a child appeared in court today.
Curtis Roberts, of Copse View, South Croydon spoke only to confirm his name at the hearing at Croydon Crown Court.
The 26-year-old faces two charges of possessing extreme pornographic images portraying an act of intercourse/oral sex with a dead/alive animal, namely a dog, which were grossly offensive, disgusting, or otherwise of obscene character.
He also faces one charge of possessing an indecent video of a child with a view to it being distributed or shown to another.
His Honour Judge P Gower QC instructed Mr Roberts to return to court on February 13 next year when the charges will be put to him to enter a plea.
Mr Roberts, who wore a brown puffa jacket and blue jeans, is on unconditional bail until the trial on May 11.
Judge P Gower said: "I have no reason to think you won't attend but you need to understand if you fail to do so without a good reason you will be liable to arrest and being kept in custody until the day of your trial."
