Ex-television presenter from Sussex facing jail over ‘disgusting’ images

A former television broadcaster is facing jail for having some of the most “disgusting” videos to come to light.

Sen Luo, 40, had more than 800 video images on his laptop and hard drives, showing women being tortured and bestiality.

Police discovered the “extreme porn” by accident while conducting an unrelated fraud inquiry.

Suspicions were raised when Luo, who also uses the name Edward Law, refused to answer the door of a house he was living in in Copthorne Road, East Grinstead.

Luo claimed the images were part of his research for a book.

He said he thought it would be a way of making money after fleeing China, where he presented an economics programme, in 2008.

But the Old Bailey jury found him guilty by an 11-1 majority of two counts under a new law of possessing extreme pornography.

Luo, now living in Park Avenue, Dover, Kent, was remanded on bail to be sentenced next month.

Dear Argus - if he's an ex-tv-presenter you should be printing his photo at least so people can see what the vile man looks like and cross the street if they see him.
