Trio hosted swinging sex parties with prostitutes and porn in Hackney Wick and Bow

Three men who hired porn stars and prostitutes for a string of "sex parties" in Hackney Wick and Bow have been spared jail.

Patrick Stewart, 43, Russell Staddon, 54, and Shahid Latif, 37, hosted parties featuring a bondage area, a porn room, and double beds to watch each other have sex and swap partners.

The orgies - advertised as “gentlemen’s parties” - were held in Fairfield Road, Bow, and at a unit called Fun Times in Queen’s Yard, Hackney Wick.

Stewart set up two brothels in 2007 before recruiting Staddon and Latif to run weekly parties, Southwark Crown Court heard on Thursday.

The recruits enjoyed sex with South American and eastern European women, who were paid around £150 for four hours work.

Stewart made £120,000 over five years, while Staddon got £62,000. But the racket was blown apart after undercover police swooped on both addresses in September 2012.

Judge David Higgins described the orgies as “deplorable”, but said his sentence reflected the fact that the women were “more than ready to participate.”

Staddon, who lives with the mother of his eight-week old child, was also caught with 28 extreme pornographic images, including two DVDs, showing women having sex with dogs.

Defence lawyer Ben Temple said his client Latif, who paid for his first sexual encounters, has a “sad and pathetic” life.

Stewart was handed a 14-month sentence, suspended for two years, and will complete 200 hours unpaid work and pay £750 costs.

Staddon got 10 months, suspended for two years, and will complete 150 hours unpaid work and pay £250 costs.

Latif received a four-month sentence, suspended for two years, and must pay £75 and complete 80 hours unpaid work.

Stewart, of Allaway Avenue, Portsmouth, Hampshire; Staddon, of Lintott Close, Stevenage, Herts, and Latif, of Copeland Road, Walthamstow, all admitted conspiracy to control prostitution for gain and money laundering.

Staddon also pleaded guilty to possessing extreme pornography.
