A man accused of making bestiality pornography has lost his bid to keep his name a secret.

Norman Gary Wilson, 60,

(can everybody read that?)

appeared in the North Shore District Court this week where police added another two charges of making an objectionable publication to the one he faced at his first appearance in September.

He has previously pleaded guilty to two charges of unlawfully possessing a firearm and two of unlawfully possessing a pistol.

Wilson’s lawyer asked for interim name suppression to continue until his next appearance but Judge Thomas Everitt said there was no evidence the defendant would suffer “extreme hardship” should his name be released. “I Like this Judge”

“There may be some hardship but that’s inevitable in cases such as this … I’ve very little sympathy with your client’s plight,” he said.

His lawyer raised the issue of Wilson’s identification by old school friends and embarrassment to his son but the judge was not persuaded. “Tough shit, should have thought about that before you started messing about with bestiality porn…I do hope your friends & family can read your name above!”

“You have a common enough surname and you don’t live with your son,” he said.

Wilson’s bail conditions barred him from using the internet and at this week’s hearing he applied to have that reversed. “F-ing cheeky perv”

As an out of work builder, it was very difficult to find work without being able to browse adverts on line, his lawyer said.

Wilson had defaulted on his last two mortgage payments and the financial situation was getting worse, he said.

Again, Judge Everitt was not swayed.

“I appreciate [the bail conditions] are restrictive … however, it’s well known the difficulty with photos such as these is they frequently make their way on to the internet and are accessible by just about everybody,” he said.

The judge said the crown’s case against Wilson seemed particularly strong because of “the background to which [the photos] were taken“.

Wilson was bailed under the same conditions to reappear in the court next month! “OK who is going to follow him to make sure he doesn’t go into an internet cafe or borrow someone else’s laptop? I find bail conditions like this bloody stupid!”
