Sick Fife paedo who had sick stash of 750,000 videos of bestiality and child abuse jailed for over a year
A MAN caught with a massive stash of nearly three quarters of a million photos and videos showing bestiality and child porn was jailed today for more than a year.
Graham Birnie, 57, used his laptop to search for the material and duplicated it onto storage sticks, his mobile, and external hard drives, for more than 14 years.
Police raided his upmarket home, in Newburgh, Fife – where Birnie lives with his elderly mother – last October (2018).

A court was told officers had received intelligence that on various occasions between February 2004 and October 2018 devices in the house had been used to access indecent images of children and extreme pornographic images and videos involving humans and animals.
Prosecutor Syma Rasheed said the devices, including a computer, hard drives, USB sticks and a mobile phone, were confiscated by officers and Birnie’s mother told them the devices were owned and used by the accused.
The depute fiscal said the combined images and movies found on all the devices amounted to a total of 728,125, of which 3567 were category A, 5834 were category B and the remainder were category C. Some were duplicates and others were “inaccessible”.
Birnie, of Mount Pleasant, Newburgh, pleaded guilty at Dundee Sheriff Court to downloading child porn and possessing extreme pornographic images depicting in an explicit and realistic way sexual activity between human adults and animals.
Solicitor Scott Norrie, defending, said Birnie had been “candid” about his porn habits.
Mr Norrie said Birnie was “effectively the carer for his 90-year-old mother”.
Sheriff Lorna Drummond QC, who jailed Birnie for 58 weeks, said: “These are serious offences and I am bound to take into account the number of these images.”
Sheriff Drummond said the Appeal Court had been “clear” about sentences that should be passed when the number of images involved ran into the hundreds of thousands, not just the hundreds.
She also placed Birnie on the sex offenders’ register for 10 years.
