Life sentence for toddler rape
Wednesday 27 July 2011
A paedophile nursery worker who raped a toddler in his care was jailed for life today after a judge described his offences as "chilling, vile and depraved".
Paul Anthony Wilson, who used a mobile phone to film two separate attacks on the infant, was ordered to serve at least 15 years before he can be considered for parole.
Mrs Justice Macur said the 21-year-old, who worked at the Little Stars Nursery in Nechells, Birmingham, had caused unknown harm to the toddler and more than 20 young girls who were abused online.
Passing sentence at Birmingham Crown Court, Mrs Justice Macur told Wilson that any right-thinking person would regard his crimes as wicked.
Wilson, of Newbold Croft, Nechells, pleaded guilty in June to two charges of rape, 16 counts of causing or inciting a child to engage in sexual activity, 25 of making indecent images, and three of distributing images of children.
The counts of rape related to attacks on a toddler committed in a toilet block and a classroom at the Little Stars nursery last year, while the majority of the other offences were committed against girls aged between 12 and 16.
Condemning Wilson as a predatory paedophile, Mrs Justice Macur told him that the offences had been "sophisticated and persistent" in their manner.
Some of the sexual acts which he had incited children to commit via webcams would be viewed in hindsight by the victims with horror, the judge said.
"You have humiliated and corrupted and defiled," she told Wilson.
"You are highly deviant, highly manipulative. You are intelligent and the more dangerous for being so."
