A man who posted a 12-page story allegedly depicting the rape, murder and mutilation of the members of Girls Aloud is being prosecuted.
Civil servant Darryn Walker, 35, is accused of uploading a story called ‘Girls (Scream) Aloud’ to a porn website.
Action was taken against him after the Internet Watch Foundation was alerted to the story, reports The Independent.
Walker, who lives in South Shields, is set to appear in Newcastle Crown Court in the coming weeks.
He is being prosecuted under the Obscene Publications Act. The case marks one of the few times the act has been used against the written word since Penguin Books were famously prosecuted in 1960 over ‘Lady Chatterley’s Lover’.
