Sexually assaulting a child under 13.
Adlard Grove, Humberston, Grimsby, Lincs, DN36
A man described by police as a "perverted criminal" has been jailed for two years after admitting he sexually assaulted a child.
Phillip Budrey, 64, from Adlard Grove in Humberston was sentenced at Grimsby Crown Court on Monday.
He pleaded guilty at an earlier court hearing to sexual assault by touching a child under 13.
Humberside Police praised the victim and her family for coming forward.
Det Con Nichola Oakley said: "Budrey is a perverted criminal who targeted a vulnerable young child and sexually assaulted her.
"He is now facing time behind bars and I hope he takes the opportunity to reflect on his depraved actions and the impact that they have had on the young child and their family."
Budrey was also entered onto the sex offenders register for 10 years and issued with a 10-year sexual harm prevention order.
The force said it hoped the sentence would act as a warning to anyone else considering committing these types of offences.
Det Con Oakley said the force would "do everything in its power" to put offenders before the courts.
She added: "If you are the victim of a sexual assault, please be reassured that we are here for you. We will listen and we will support you."
Andrew Thompson 32
Numerous convictions for sexually assaulting children under 13, possessing indecent images of children and voyeurism.
Rossall Road, Great Sankey, Warrington, Cheshire, WA5
A paedophile was caught after a camera he had hidden in toilets at an Air Training Corps (ATC) centre was found.
The police investigation that followed saw Andrew Thompson, 32, from Great Sankey, Warrington, admit to sexually abusing several boys.
He also amassed thousands of images of children, some taken at a school he worked in as a teaching assistant.
Thompson was jailed for eight years at Chester Crown Court on Monday, after pleading guilty to 33 offences.
In July 2022 a member of staff at the ATC centre at which Thompson volunteered discovered the hidden camera.
Police forensics experts found thousands of images of children on it, as well as footage of the man installing the device.
The man was identified as Thompson, of Rossall Road in Great Sankey, Warrington.
He was arrested on 23 December 2022, and police found other electronic devices that contained a number of images of children. These included images taken by Thompson at the ATC centre and the school.
Officers spoke to a number of children known to Thompson, some of whom revealed he had sexually assaulted them. Thompson was re-arrested and charged in September, 2023.
In court he pleaded guilty to nine counts of sexually assaulting a child under 13, 19 counts of voyeurism, two counts of making (downloading) indecent images of children, two counts of creating indecent images, and one count of possessing indecent images.
On top of his prison sentence, Thompson was ordered to sign the sex offenders' register for life, is subject to a Sexual Harm Prevention Order (SHPO), and was handed restraining orders prohibiting him from contacting his victims.
Cheshire Police Det Insp Simon Mills, from Cheshire Police, described Thompson as a "sexual predator".
He said: "He abused his position and it's clear that he had no regards for his victims, his only concern was to fulfil his own sexual gratification."
Nathan Lovell 33
Abusing two young girls, and paying other people to abuse children on camera while he watched.
Opportune Road, Wisbech, Cambridgeshire, PE13
A paedophile who abused two young girls and paid almost 5,000 for adults to abuse other children around the world has been jailed.
Nathan Lovell, 33, has been locked up for 15 years at Cambridge Crown Court
When officers arrested him, indecent images of children were discovered on his phone, including 1226 category C images or videos, 18 category B images or videos and 14 category A the most severe.
Officers also discovered screen recordings where Lovell was taking part in online conversations directing and paying for children to be abused by other adults.
In one of the recordings Lovell could be seen on the front-facing camera. In another of the conversations, he promised a puppy as payment to an adult about to abuse a young girl.
Officers carried out further enquiries with social media companies, which revealed further instances of Lovell paying for child sex abuse online. In total, he spent about 4,800 in this way.
Lovell, of Opportune Road, Wisbech, was charged with 18 counts in total, including:
He pleaded guilty to the three indecent image charges at his first court hearing but denied the others.
However, after an eight-day trial at Cambridge Crown Court in December, jurors found him guilty by unanimous verdict on all 15 other charges.
Lovell was sentenced at the same court on Monday (19 February) where he was handed a total of 15 years in prison, with an extended four years on licence.
Passing sentence, Judge Mark Bishop said Lovell posed a significant risk to children and there was an unpredictability to his future behaviour.
A restraining order prohibiting Lovell from contacting the two sexual assault victims was also put in place for 25 years, together with a Sexual Harm Prevention Order (SHPO) for the same timeframe to monitor any future offending. He must sign the Sex Offenders Register for life.
DC Ollie Plant, from the forces Child Abuse Investigation and Safeguarding Unit (CAISU), said: Our thoughts are with the two young girls targeted by Lovell in the most horrific of ways, and his other victims who were targeted online.
We are pleased he has now been brought to justice and hope the sentence gives his victims and their families some closure from this traumatic period in their lives.
What Lovell did in paying other adults to abuse children across the world will no doubt be shocking to many. A child is victimised when an indecent image is taken and every time it is viewed or shared.
Protecting young people from harm is one of our top priorities and we have specially trained officers who are there to support victims and bring offenders to justice.
Robert Parsons 24
Blackmailer tormented children into sending him indecent images of themselves
Wavertree Park Gardens, Wyke, Bradford, West Yorkshire, BD12
A tech addict who hacked into teenage girls' Snapchat accounts and tried to bribe them into sending him naked pictures of themselves has been jailed.
Robert Parsons, 22, "toyed" and "teased" with his victims, who were aged between 14 and 19, and on one occasion posed as a 14-year-old boy.
His actions left the girls with severe trauma, Bradford Crown Court heard.
He was given a five-year custodial term to be followed by a closely-monitored four-year licence period.
At an earlier hearing Parsons, who carried out his offending while subject to previous sexual prevention orders, admitted 24 offences related to illegally accessing the Snapchat accounts of his victims.
The court was told how he had left the girls feeling frightened and embarrassed after accessing their private photos and, in one case, posted an intimate picture on a public platform.
The mother of one of the victims, a 15-year-old girl, said her daughter had suffered an horrific ordeal during which she was blackmailed by Parsons.
Prosecutor David McGonigal said Parsons was addicted to using internet devices and had persisted in offending with disregard for his existing court orders.
Sentencing him, Judge Andrew Hatton said Parsons had caused severe psychological trauma to the the girls and he was satisfied he met the criteria for an extended sentence as a dangerous offender.
His list of offences included attempting to cause a person to engage in sexual activity without consent, disclosing private sexual photos without consent, breach of a sexual harm prevention order, breach of the sex offender notification requirements and possession of indecent images of children.
His previous convictions included making indecent photos of children dating from when he was aged 15 and 16.
Parsons' barrister Abdul Shakoor said he was addicted to pornography and that had led him down a path of social isolation, with lockdown having made matters worse.
Fortunately, none of the complainants sent the images Parsons demanded so no sexual activity without consent ultimately took place, Mr Shakoor said.
Parsons, formerly of Wavertree Park Gardens, Bradford, but held in custody at HMP Leeds, was also given a nine-year sexual harm prevention order and must remain on the Sexual Offenders' Register for life.
Det Insp Lee Speight said Parsons posed a threat to young women and praised the bravery of victims and their families for giving evidence.
Andrew Davidson 63
Serial paedophile downloaded child abuse images and breached sexual harm prevention orders.
Belmore Gardens, Lymington, Hampshire, SO41
A SERIAL paedophile was told by a judge to throw his laptop away in order to prevent him committing further crimes.
Andrew Davidson, 63, from Belmore Gardens, Lymington, has a history of downloading child abuse images and breaching sexual harm prevention orders.
He was jailed for ten months in 2018 in Nottingham, where he was living at the time, for possessing thousands of indecent photos of children including Category A – the most severe.
At that time Davidson was under a SHPO imposed for a similar offence in 2006, for which he was given a suspended sentence and ordered to take part in an internet sex offenders treatment programme.
In 2021 he again breached an SHPO order and was given a suspended prison sentence. Another order was also imposed.
But a jury a Southampton Crown Court heard in November he breached it again.
An offender monitoring firm were alerted in October last year that he had downloaded software on a laptop which enabled him to browse sites undetected.
It meant, said prosecutor Harvey Keely, the company could not see what Davidson was looking at on the internet. There was also no search history.
Police were alerted and went to Davidson’s home, where they seized all his internet capable devices including a Samsung mobile phone on which there were five child abuse images including three within category A.
The defendant pleaded guilty to breaching the order but denied making an indecent image of a child between 25th February 2018 and 1st June 2021. However, he was found guilty by the jury at the city’s crown court and sent to Portsmouth for sentencing.
In defence, barrister Nicholas Gammon said his client had claimed he had used the software to look for old emails and did not know how the indecent images “got there.”
The defendant cares for his partner, added Mr Gammon, who is “seriously ill” and “would not be able to cope” if he was jailed.
Mr Gammon continued: “The police are not going to leave him alone; they will monitor him very closely and he is not someone who can escape the net. My advice to him was to throw his computer away.”
Sentencing the defendant, Judge Newton-Price KC said he agreed with the barrister, adding: “You are extremely lucky to escape an immediate custodial sentence and might want to consider Mr Gammon’s suggestion to get of rid all internet devices.”
Davidson was sentenced to a total of 14 months in prison suspended for two years. He was given a 10-year SHPO and ordered to do 150 hours of unpaid work.
Thomas Pattison 33
Multiple non-recent sexual offences against two girls aged 14 and 15.
Woking, Surrey, GU22
Following an investigation by Surrey Police’s Sexual Offences Investigation Team, a man from Woking has been jailed for four years and nine months for multiple non-recent sexual offences against two girls aged 14 and 15 at the time.
Thomas Pattison, 32, (DOB 23.09.91) from Woking committed the offences between 2013 and 2014. Evidence of his offending was uncovered when one of his victims reported to the police that she had been in a sexual relationship with Pattison. Soon after this a second victim came forward. Pattison’s phone was seized by officers and messages were found which corroborated one of the accounts and witness enquiries confirmed the other.
The sentencing at Guildford Crown Court was part heard on Tuesday, 6 February with the victims present but was adjourned until the judge was able to confirm the sentence later that week. On Friday, 9 February, Pattison was sentenced for seven counts of penetrative sexual activity with a child, having pleaded guilty at a pre-trial hearing previously.
He will serve his time in prison and will then be released on license. He will also be subject to a 10-year Sexual Harm Prevention Order and will be on the Sex Offenders Register for life.

Bathgate, West Lothian, EH48

James Webber 39
Manipulated and blackmailed a young girl into sending into sending indecent images of herself.
Hollygarth Lane, Beal, Goole, North Yorkshire, DN14
A man who manipulated, blackmail and traumatised a 12-year-old for his own twisted pleasure has been jailed for multiple child sex abuse crimes.
James Michael David Webber, 39, of Hollygarth Lane, Beal, near Selby, was sentenced to 13 years in prison at York Crown Court today (Friday).
He had previously been found guilty of seven offences including blackmail; two counts of inciting a child to engage in sexual activity; three counts of possession of indecent images of children; and possession of extreme pornography.
The court heard how, in May 2020, Webber manipulated and blackmailed a 12-year-old child to send explicit images of herself to him via SnapChat.
He threatened to harm her family as he claimed he could see where she lived as her location was visible through the app.
When the victim refused to send him further images, Webber callously distributed these images to others.
This caused significant harm to the victims mental health and wellbeing, the impact of which she will likely have to deal with for years.
Police praised the childs incredible courage to come forward and contact them.
Webber was located from his IP address.
Devices seized from Webber also located 97 Category A pictures the worst kind of indecent images and videos of children; 149 Category B and 144 Category C indecent images of children; and four extreme pornography images and videos.
The court heard how Webber was continuing to create SnapChat accounts just days before his arrest.
He deleted the SnapChat app from his phone as police arrived less than a minute before he was taken into custody for questioning.
DC Jenna Hallewell, the officer in charge of the investigation, said a key component of his conviction was the evidence extracted from Webbers devices by North Yorkshire Polices Digital Forensic Team.
Webber denied the offences, showing no remorse for the twisted and vindictive behaviour against his victim that still impacts on her to this day, she said.
Id like to pay tribute to the victim and her bravery in coming forward which has been incredible. Her courage means that Webber is no longer free to target and victimise children for his own pleasure.
It is important that victims of such crimes come forward to assist police in locating perpetrators to put a stop to online abuse against children.

Byatt Walk, Hampton, TW12
A man who raped a teenage girl in a Hove park has been jailed for 11 years.
David Berbers, 21, of Byatt Walk in Richmond upon Thames, attacked his victim – a girl under the age of 16 – in St Ann’s Well Gardens on the evening of Sunday, 25 July, 2021.
He had arranged to meet her after the pair had been communicating on social media.
After suggesting they walk through the park, he raped her before fleeing the scene, leaving her to seek help from members of the public nearby.
She was supported by medical professionals and specialist police officers, while an urgent investigation was launched.

Urgent enquiries were carried out and he was arrested in London three days later on 28 July, 2021.
He was subsequently charged with the rape of a girl under 16 in relation to the Hove incident.

Using Snapchat to lure a young girl to a park where he raped her.
Richmond Road, Handsworth, Sheffield, S13
A Sheffield man has been jailed for eight and a half years after raping a 12-year-old girl in a local park.
Sheffield Crown Court heard how 21-year-old Lewis Stacey deceived the young girl over Snapchat messages by using a false name and convincing her he was 15-years-old.
The victim initially met Stacey in June 2022, and during the meeting he raped her twice. Stacey then arranged to meet the girl again in a park in July 2022, where he led her into some bushes and raped her again.
Detective Constable Jason Earl, officer in the case, said: The young victim very bravely came forward and reported to the police what Stacey had done to her.
Upon his arrest, Stacey initially denied having ever met the victim and only entered a guilty plea when forensic evidence proved he was responsible for the offences.
This incident has had a profound effect on the victim and I would like to praise her for the tremendous courage and dignity she has shown throughout the investigation and court proceedings.
I am pleased that Stacey is behind bars where he can do no further harm, and I hope this sentencing allows the victim to attempt to move forward with her life.
South Yorkshire Police takes all reports of rape extremely seriously and will work tirelessly to bring offenders to justice.
Stacey, of Richmond Hall Road, appeared before Sheffield Crown Court on 6 October 2023, where he pleaded guilty to four counts of rape of a child under 13.
On Thursday 8 February he was sentenced to eight and half years in prison, given a fifteen year restraining order restricting him from contacting the victim, and handed and given an eight and half years sexual harm prevention order starting upon his release from prison.
Ansaf Saeedy 21
Predatory sex offender who raped two women after tricking them to gain their confidence.
Alfreton Road, Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, NG7
A predatory sex offender who raped two women after tricking them to gain their confidence has been jailed.
Ansaf Saeedy was described by a judge as an ‘opportunist’ who preyed upon the two victims and did not care if they consented to his advances or not.
The 21-year-old then refused to admit his offending or show any remorse – forcing his victims to go through the further ordeal of a crown court trial.
Saeedy, of Alfreton Road, Nottingham, was jailed for nine years after being convicted of two counts of rape at Nottingham Crown Court on Friday (16 February).
The first victim was targeted by Saeedy in the early hours of 26 May 2021 when he approached her in Nottingham city centre.
Saeedy, who was riding a scooter, started talking to the woman and invited her to party.
He bought the victim alcohol from a shop before they went to a flat. There were no other people inside the property but Saeedy plied the woman with more alcohol.
He raped her after suggesting that she lied down on his bed.
Saeedy claimed repeatedly that he had not had sex with his victim, and continued to lie about what happened even when damning forensic evidence proved he was not telling the truth.
On 27 August 2022, the second victim had agreed to meet with Saeedy and go for some food.
He tricked his way into her flat before raping her.
Detectives carried out a meticulous investigation into both incidents while supporting the victims and their families.

Imogen Boorman 52
Former Coronation Street actress placed on the sex offenders register after admitting to a series of offences.
High Street, Montrose, Angus, DD10
Former Coronation Street actress Imogen Boorman has been placed on the sex offenders register after admitting to a series of offences including public indecency and theft of alcohol.
The 52 year old mum-of-three, who played Vanessa Morgan in the popular ITV soap during the 1990s, was arrested last May following a drunken incident at the Picture House pub in Montrose, Scotland, where she resides.
Boorman, who also starred in Hellbound: Hellraiser II, Casualty and Lovejoy, pleaded guilty to seven charges in total and is set to be sentenced in April.
The court heard that Boorman entered the pub around 10pm and stripped naked after simply smiling when asked for her order. She then climbed onto the bar, lay down and began drinking directly from the beer taps.
It was reported that while lying on the bar, she took a man's hands and placed them on her bare chest, sexually assaulting him before spraying his face with a draught juice gun. Boorman then moved to the dining area of the pub where she attempted to pull down the same man's trousers in a sexual manner.
Four police officers were sent to a pub where a drunken woman was causing trouble. Two female officers tried to help her get dressed again. The court heard that when she got to the police station in Dundee, she hurt one of the officers by grabbing her arm, which caused scratches and redness.
Boorman had drunk or spilled alcohol worth 321.86. She admitted stealing alcohol from the bar, behaving in a threatening or abusive manner and public indecency. She also pleaded guilty to charges of assaulting and sexually assaulting the customer and resisting police and assaulting a PC, reports The Mirror.
Boorman's lawyer said she felt very embarrassed and sorry for what she had done. But he said she was now doing better and was being treated for a condition called complex PTSD.
The judge said he would decide what to do about Boorman on April 2. He told Boorman: "I can see you hung your head as that narrative was being read out. No doubt it tortures you to have to appear and listen to what was your behaviour back then. I'm very delighted to hear from your solicitor that you have made significant progress in addressing the alcohol issue that was no doubt behind these extraordinary, bizarre events."
