Teen found with stash of vile child and dog sexual abuse videos facing jail

A teenager is facing jail after being caught with a stash of disgusting videos depicting child and animal abuse.

Police raided Yi-Yun Wang’s Fenham home and found an Ipod Touch with nine of the most serious Category A child abuse clips and a Category B video

There was a clip showing “a person performing a sex act” with a dog.

The teenager – who now calls himself Ian Wilson – could be jailed for up to three years after admitting a trio of offences.

Armed with a warrant, police swooped on his house in an early morning raid last year where they made the discovery.  

Prosecutor Oriana Frame said the 18-year-old refused to answer almost all of the police’s questions when quizzed – but owned up to one crucial fact.

“He did admit the device was his,” she told North Tyneside Magistrates’ Court.

“He also said he had not shown any images to anyone else.”

At Wednesday’s hearing, the three-man bench ordered the teenager to remove a hoodie which covered much of his face.

The defendant pleaded guilty to two counts of making indecent photographs of a child.

He also admitted one charge of possessing an extreme pornographic image portraying an act of intercourse with an animal.

The sick material is said to have amassed over a near three year period, starting from when the teenager was just 14 years old.

Wang was told he must now register with the police as a sex offender.

His crimes carried a starting point of six months behind bars – which Magistrates can impose – however the prosecutor said such a lenient sentence was “very unlikely” due to the Category A material.

The defendant, of Simonburn Avenue, was granted unconditional bail to appear at Crown Court on September 11.
