A pervert who shared his fantasies of abusing newborn babies with other paedophiles on the internet has been jailed.
Loner Frazer Williams had “extreme and dark” conversations about the abuse of young children “from one-day upwards”.
Williams, who was a supermarket manager at the time, was arrested when police raided his Bagillt home, where he lived with his dad and sister.
Described by his defence barrister as a “rather unworldy man”, he admitted having conversations about child abuse but claimed it was “pure fantasy”.
However, a judge said he was a risk to children, and at Mold Crown Court today he was jailed for 16 months for six charges of making and distributing “disturbing” images, some of them in the worst category.
He was caught after an investigation launched by police in Humberside traced some of the images to him.
Prosecutor Michael Whitty told the court: “Chatlogs confirmed that the defendant had been discussing in the most extreme terms about abusing and harming children.”
Defending barrister Matthew Dunford said that they were serious offences. Williams had co-operated with police and entered early guilty pleas.
Williams, of Victoria Road, had never been in trouble before. Before the offences came to light he was working in a local supermarket, was a qualified duty manager and trusted as key-holder.
“But because of this offending he has lost his employment,” said Mr Dunford.
He stressed that there were relatively few images and he said the pre-sentence report contained a well set out alternative to immediate custody.
The 34-year-old was motivated to tackle his issues, which would be of benefit to him and to the community, said Mr Dunford.
Judge Parry said it had to be an immediate prison sentence and he made a ten year se.ual harm prevention order and ordered him to register with the police as a sex offender for ten years.
One child in the images was as young as six and other images showed girls as young as ten and 12 being penetrated, he said.
By his own admissions he had engaged in sexualised conversations about the serious physical and sexual abuse of children.
He had “extreme and dark” conversations on the internet which he said were fantasies.
Although there was no suggestion he’d ever had contact with abused children, he had distributed images which only served to increase the market and increased the danger to children, said Judge Parry.
He had sent and received images, and the only real mitigation was his guilty pleas.
