A 55-year-old Nigerian doctor Cyprian Okoro has been found guilty of being in possession of extreme pornography, including a video of a man having sex with a snake.
Okoro, a General Practitioner from South-west London was found guilty of five counts of possessing extreme pornography and one indecent image of a child.
The Old Bailey heard the videos were of a “grossly offensive, disgusting or otherwise obscene character”.
Some of the videos found with him featured women having sex with dogs and one woman having sex with a horse.
The jury was not having none of it, as it took them less than a day of deliberations to find him guilty of all but two charges of possessing extreme pornography relating to bestiality with dogs.
Okoro denied the charges and would face his sentencing hearing on 30 September.
The court heard Okoro stored the images on his mobile phone having received them via WhatsApp.
It was also discovered that he moved an indecent video of a two-year-old boy into a password-protected vault on his phone.
After its verdict, the jury was informed that it was Okoro’s second conviction.
In 2014 he was handed a nine-month jail term suspended for 18 months at Norwich Crown Court for possessing an indecent image of a child and five counts of possessing extreme pornographic images.
Judge Richard Hone QC said, “He is very lucky not to be immediately imprisoned and this was quite a bad case.
“It would be unfair to put him immediately in prison when the first trial gave him a suspended sentence – even if it was frankly, pretty lenient.”
Okoro qualified as a doctor in Lagos, Nigeria, in 1986, and received an interim suspension by the General Medical Council in September 2013.
