Cumbrian man jailed for possessing Bart Simpson porn

A man who possessed cartoons showing TV character Bart Simpson performing sexual acts has been jailed.

Andrew Smith, 55, appeared at Carlisle Crown Court.

He was found guilty after a trial of nine charges alleging he was in possession of prohibited images of children.

All of the images were drawings. The court heard that Smith had downloaded these images and burned them to disc before it was made a crime to do this in 2010.

Police had found them after searching his home – in Killington Drive, Kendal – for evidence related to a separate matter.

At the trial, Smith had said he had a reason for having the files as he wished to campaign for sexual relations between pre-pubescent children and adults to be legalised.

However, a jury found him guilty on all counts.

Smith was sentenced to nine months imprisonment.

Have we reached saturation point with bars in the city?

No - the more the merrier. It helps to have choice

Yes - we could do with more specialist shops, not bars

As long as they are not all the same I don't mind how many there are
