Midweek Sport - - SPORT - By NEIL GOOD­WIN

A COURT clerk has ad­mit­ted watch­ing hard­core porno dur­ing Crown Court tri­als.

De­ba­sish Ma­jumder, 54, used his work com­puter to view adult sites when­ever he got BORED dur­ing ev­i­dence at In­ner London Crown Court.

But he was caught when Judge Nigel Seed QC saw an im­age of a woman giv­ing oral sex to a man.

Po­lice were called in and they found XXX searches in the his­tory of his work PC plus ex­treme images on his home com­puter.

Annabel Dar­low, prose­cut­ing, said: “Ma­jumder’s con­duct has con­sti­tuted a whole­sale abuse of his po­si­tion.

“He said that he watched a lot of in­ter­net porn and that at work there were mo­ments in his day that were bor­ing.

“He would surf the net, not to get ac­cess to sites, but to get the ti­tles to use on his home PC and nor­mally the sites were blocked.

“He said that no­body in the court would be able to see what he was look­ing at on his screen apart from the judge – who would not be able to read the names as the print was too small.

“He only looked at porn if the case was bor­ing and did so once or twice a week.

“He had been do­ing this since De­cem­ber the pre­vi­ous year.”

Ma­jumder pleaded guilty to one charge of mis­con­duct in public of­fice and five counts of pos­ses­sion of in­de­cent images dur­ing a hear­ing at Kingston Crown Court.

His sen­tenc­ing was post­poned for fur­ther med­i­cal re­ports un­til later this month.
