No misconduct proceedings have been brought against a police officer from Leyland who was cleared of possessing two explicit animal porn videos.
PC Gareth Roscoe, 26, of Tamar Close, who works for Greater Manchester Police, denied two counts of possessing extreme pornographic images, which involved a dog and a horse engaged in sexual activity with humans.
He was found not guilty after a two-day trial in January.
PC Roscoe told the jury the images were sent to him by a colleague while he was doing temping work at a TV licensing firm in Preston between April and August 2006, prior to joining the force.
He said he found the images “offensive and disgusting”.
PC Roscoe said he did not mean to save them and thought he had deleted them. They were stored on his old mobile phone.
The images were found after officers raided his home for an unrelated matter, which was not pursued, the court heard.
More than a year before he was cleared, he was also found not guilty of sexual assault and misconduct in a public office in October 2011.
The first court case centred around an allegation where a woman claimed he touched her breast and tried to kiss her in an interview room at Bolton police station, after her boyfriend was arrested for drink driving.
Greater Manchester Police’s Professional Standards Branch considered the latest case after the trial in January, and decided not to take any misconduct action against Mr Roscoe.
A police spokesman confirmed PC Roscoe continues to serve for the force as a police officer and that no misconduct proceedings were brought against him internally.
