Disgusting Rapists and Paedophiles

Paedophile gang who raped babies and toddlers as young as three months and streamed their vile crimes on the internet to sex abusers

A gang of paedophiles who raped babies, toddlers and pre-school children and streamed the abuse over the internet have been jailed for 78 years.

The seven man ring, aged between 31 and 51, preyed on the families of the children they targeted, in one case grooming a mother and father before their baby was born.

They travelled across the country to carry out vile attacks together in groups, or used internet streaming so they could be ‘encouraged and directed’ in real-time by other paedophiles.

The seven – including three convicted sex offenders – were convicted of 29 child sex abuse offences, including conspiracy to rape and the multiple rape of a child aged under 13.

They are John Denham, 50, from Wiltshire, Matthew Stansfield, 35, from Hampshire, Adam Toms, 33, from Somerset, Christopher Knight, 35, from Manchester, Robin Hollyson, 31, from Bedfordshire, David Harsley, 51, from Yorkshire, and Matthew Lisk, 33, from Sussex.

Passing sentence at Bristol Crown Court, Judge Julian Lambert said: ‘In the worst nightmare, from the very deepest recesses of the mind, at the darkest hour of the night, few can have imagined the terrifying depravity which you men admit.

‘What you contemplated and what you did involved the most horrific abuse of a baby and very young children.

‘Your thoughts and deeds are beyond human instinct and reason, and are evil beyond rational understanding.

‘You men indulged yourselves in some of the most depraved and grossly deviant behaviour imaginable. The depth to which you sank is astounding and highly shocking to all decent people.

 

‘What you did is contrary to all nature and humanity and you each appear to have a chilling tendency to centre the world on yourselves and your depraved desires without regard for the innocent and vulnerable.

Your conduct is of deep concern to the public and people are outraged at what you have done. What you did provokes tears in many and makes others feel physically sick.

‘Given the strength of public feeling I consider that retribution has a very large part to play in the sentencing exercise. This is no case for treatment and rehabilitation outside prison.’

Christopher Knight, David Harsley (pictured) and Robin Hollyson were also among members of the gang, which travelled hundreds of miles to carry out sickening attacks together

Internet logs revealed the gang, who lived across the UK, would offer advice on using ‘date rape’ drugs or over-the-counter medication to drug and sedate children and babies.

Known victims of the men include one baby, aged between three and seven months at the time of the abuse, a four-year-old boy and a boy aged between four and five.

In July 2013, Harsley performed a sexual act near a four-year-old boy, while Denham and Lisk watched through a video link to a hotel room at Heathrow Airport.

Hollyson claimed to have repeatedly raped a baby from the age of three months and filmed himself doing so between December 2013 and January 2014. Later that month, Hollyson, Knight and Denham planned to meet to sexually abuse the boy but could not do so as Hollyson was in hospital.

Hollyson, Knight and Stansfield met in February 2014 though it is not clear what happened.

In May 2014, Hollyson, Stansfield and Toms met up to rape and sexually assault the baby, with the incident filmed and shared.

A video from July 2014 shows Hollyson abusing the baby, while logs reveal Hollyson and Stansfield conspired to rape him in July and August 2014.

Hollyson was arrested in September 2014, ending the baby’s abuse. Investigators uncovered images of the baby being abused.

In April 2014, Toms administered drugs to a four-year-old boy to allow him and Knight to abuse him. Photographs of this were shared online. The attacks were carefully planned, with defendants driving hundreds of miles to commit their crimes.

The judge continued: ‘You each made choices. Those choices have proved catastrophic for you personally but that is of slight concern when compared with the devastating impact of your actions on the victims and their families.

The seven men - aged between 31 and 51 and including three previously convicted sex offenders - appeared before Bristol Crown Court to be sentenced

‘The material you viewed and the urges you excited in each other were matters of choice for you. You sought out the darkest materials on the internet and met in cyberspace to discuss your perverted sexual desires.

‘You then planned the most shockingly sordid exploitation of the very young for sexual purposes. Targeting innocent children in that way is utterly abhorrent and is bound to receive condign punishment.

‘The degraded and deplorable state into which you have rendered yourselves is pitiful but there is no room for mercy here.

‘All sympathy and compassion must be extended to the victims of crime and their families, and not you.’

Hollyson received a 24-year prison sentence plus an extension of eight years on licence while Toms was jailed for 12 years plus an extension of four years on licence.

Passing sentence at Bristol Crown Court, Judge Julian Lambert

Knight was jailed for 18 years plus an extension of six years on licence and Stansfield received a 10-year prison sentence plus an extension of four years on licence.

Denham was jailed for eight years plus an extension of four years on licence.

Lisk was jailed for four years plus an extension of three years on licence and Harsley was jailed for two years

They were all placed on the sex offenders’ register for life, except for Harsley whose length is still to be determined by the judge.

The National Crime Agency uncovered the abuse last September after Toms contacted police to admit he had abused a child. Mr Davies said the impact on the victims and their families was ‘profound and long lasting’.

One of the victim’s families added: ‘We would like to thank police, the National Crime Agency and all the other law enforcement agencies involved for their support and handling of what has been a very traumatic and distressing experience for us.

‘No family ever wants to find that their child has been the victim of abuse, nor would they ever knowingly put their child at risk.

‘As a family we now need to mend – seeing the perpetrators being brought to justice is the first step.’

JAILED PAEDOPHILES GROUP ‘ONE OF THE MOST DANGEROUS EVER’

They are among the most dangerous groups of paedophiles this country has ever seen, according to the senior investigator who brought them to justice.

As John Denham, Matthew Stansfield, Adam Toms, Christopher Knight, Robin Hollyson, David Harsley and Matthew Lisk all begin prison sentences, investigators revealed the men’s tentacles of abuse spread around the world.

In their warped world they used their crimes as ‘currency’ with other paedophiles in order to exchange other sickening material.

Ian Glover, of the National Crime Agency, described the inquiry as ‘extremely challenging’. ‘We have had to investigate contact offences with extremely young children and a linked international network of paedophiles,’ the senior investigator said.

‘This is by far the worst paedophile group I have investigated.

‘They are abusing extremely young children, they are ingratiating themselves with families and not only are they abusing victims but then putting it out on the world wide web for others to see.

‘Then they are linking with further paedophile groups abroad who are conducting the same abuse and sharing the results of that abuse.’

Mr Glover said Hollyson groomed a pregnant mother and her partner in order to win their trust and get access to their child once it was born.

‘Other members of the group have also groomed other families, got themselves into a position of trust, so they can commit offences against these victims,’ he said.

‘Once they have committed offences they are linking in with other members of the group, using new technology and streaming offences over the internet for the sexual gratification of the other paedophiles.

‘They then arrange to meet up and abuse some of the victims as a group.

‘Some of the victims have been treated as a commodity, to be passed onto others and to be filmed, to be abused and that abuse shown to other paedophiles as a form of currency, so they can get other material back and access to other children.’

Mr Glover said that because of the age of the victims, a case was built using data retrieved from internet service providers.

‘During this investigation there were no witnesses as the victims were too young to give evidence – they couldn’t speak up for themselves,’ he said.

‘So we had to go out and find that data and other evidence to convict these paedophiles. Law enforcement only gets 12 months to obtain that data from the service providers.

‘One thing to bear in mind is once this data is gone, it’s gone – it’s destroyed. This hampers the investigation and we can’t then go and link paedophiles together.

‘In this case we didn’t start the investigation until nine months after some offences, so it left us a very short period of time to obtain that data.’

Mr Glover said officers from the National Crime Agency had shared intelligence gathered on other paedophiles during the investigation with authorities from across the world.

‘We are expecting more convictions in the UK and abroad. Our investigation continues and we have got other offenders on bail at this moment in time,’ he added.
