How can I verify a JPEG file is valid or not ? Because it will halt if I pass a file name of invalid JPEG file to LoadFromFile, so, how can I prevent it halt again !

A JPEG file contains block markers followed by a block of a certain type. For example a jpeg file will start with the two byte FF D8 and end with the two byte FF D9. Sometimes one ore more extra byte are added to the end of the file due to bugs in transfer software. These files still display but you can delete the extra byte form the end. One time I had a file with more than 1000 extra byte.
I use the following function:
function IsJPEGFileOK(aFileName: string): Boolean;
var
  fs: tFileStream;
  JPEGSign: array[1..2] of Byte;
begin
  Result := false;
  fs := tFileStream.Create(aFileName, fmOpenRead);
  try
    try
        { Check for JPEG-File Beginnmarker }
      fs.Seek(0, soFromBeginning);
      fs.ReadBuffer(JPEGSign, 2);
      Result := (JPEGSign[1] = $FF) and (JPEGSign[2] = $D8);  { $FFD8 }
      if not Result then Exit;
        { Check for JPEG-File Endmarker }
      fs.Seek(-2, soFromEnd);
      fs.ReadBuffer(JPEGSign, 2);
      Result := (JPEGSign[1] = $FF) and (JPEGSign[2] = $D9);  { $FFD9 }
    except
      on E: Exception do
        ErrorMessage('IsJPEGFileOK', E.Message);
    end;
  finally
    fs.Free;
  end;
end;   { IsJPEGFileOK }

I understand, but, actually I want to know whether Delphi will raise a exception for a "BUG" JPEG file ?
