A mother has been charged with two counts of possessing indecent images of dogs.

Michelle Johnston, 34, of Genoa House, Juniper Drive, Battersea, pleaded not guilty to possession of extreme pornography at Wimbledon Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday, December 2.

The court heard the obscene images, which portrayed a person having sex with a dog, had been sent to her mobile phone unsolicited via WhatsApp Messenger.

She states on her Facebook page she was a manager at Wandsworth Council in 2011.

Miss Johnston who has “fairly significant” learning difficulties, will be tried by magistrates on Friday, February 27, next year.
