The face of evil: Rochester paedophile ‘commissioned’ child abuse filming

A paedophile has been jailed after admitting arranging the commission of a child sex offence and nine charges of possessing indecent images of children.

David Glancey, pictured, of Maidstone Road, Rochester, was handed an indeterminate sentence of 25 months at Maidstone Crown Court today.

The 29-year-old committed the offences between January and March this year.

Earlier he admitted facilitating the commission of a child sex offence and distributing and possessing indecent photos of children.

The court was told Glancey was found in possession of 279 images, ranging from level 1 to the most serious, level 5.

The force said while he was on bail he continued to access the internet, breaching his conditions, and arranged to pay for sex with a girl aged between 10 and 12 years old.

He was rearrested and charged in March.

Det Con Mikaela Stevens said: “Glancey tried his best to avoid the consequences of his actions.

“These offences, together with his previous criminal history, demonstrate that Glancey poses a significant and ongoing risk to children.

“I am glad that the Judge has acknowledged this in the sentence.”

The court was told he had previously been ordered to sign the sex offenders register but was not subject to any court orders at the time of the 10 offences.

Glancey had a previous conviction for inciting a child to commit an act of gross indecency and indecent assault.
