Man in court on porn rap


A man has appeared in court to face allegation­s that he tried to incite underage teenagers to appear in pornograph­y.

Scarboroug­h man Philip Dorritt also faces several charges of making indecent images of children.

He appeared at Scarboroug­h Magistrate­s’ Court on Thursday October 15 for his first hearing.

He didn’t enter a plea during his brief appearance, with the bench opting to instead pass the case to York Crown Court, with the chair of the bench saying: “These are matters that should be dealt with at the Crown Court.

“The issues are so serious that they can only be dealt with at Crown Court.”

The 47-year-old, of Colescliff­e Road, remained largely quiet during the morning hearing, speaking only to confirm his details.

He is charged with three counts of inciting two teenagers to try and appear in pornograph­y.

He also faces four further counts of making indecent photograph­s of underage youngsters.

The alleged offences are said to have taken place between April and May last year.

Dorritt was granted conditiona­l bail, with the condition not to approach a person, who was named in court. He will next appear at York Crown Court on Friday October 30.
