Depraved paedophile had 20 minute baby rape and torture video

A depraved paedophile from Cornwall who was caught with thousands of sick images had a video showing the rape and torture of a baby has been jailed

Peter Cummins, 45, still seeks to minimise his offending and blame others for his perversions.

Cummins, formerly of Chantry Park in Callington but who has since moved to Plymouth, appeared at Truro Crown Court for sentence having pleaded guilty to three counts of making indecent images of children and possessing extreme pornographic images.

Prosecuting the case, Ed Bailey described how police officers attended Cummins’ Callington address in October 2018 and seized a computer, mobile phone and USB sticks.

The defendant was arrested and made full admissions to having a sexual interest in children.

The devices revealed material showing children being touched and forced to have intercourse.

In total Cummins had 285 Category A images of which 164 were movies, 169 Category B images featuring 38 movies and 323 Category C Images of which 15 were movies.

Cummins also had 1,609 extreme pornographic images showing sex with animals.

Mr Bailey went on to describe how the children in the sick collection were aged from a few months to 12 years, with most aged between four and eight years.

One of the videos was said to be 20 minutes long showing the sexual penetration and torture of a baby.

The court was also told how Cummins was cautioned for being in possession of a small number of indecent images of children in 2016.

Sentencing Cummins, Judge Carr pointed out the large number of images and Cummins’ “tendency to minimise responsibility and not recognise the harm people like him are causing by feeding the industry”.

Cummins was jailed for two years.
