Windsor paedophile paid for live stream to watch children being sexually abused

A Berkshire paedophile has been jailed after paying to live-stream the sexual abuse of children.

Gary Green, 58, of Foster Avenue, Windsor, was arrested by National Crime Agency (NCA) officers in October 2017 after an investigation revealed he made 10 payments totalling £219.75 to people in the Philippines to facilitate child sexual abuse in that country.

Three indecent images of children were recovered from his electronic devices, along with a number of online chat logs where Green expressed a sexual interest in children and arranged the live-streams.

Chat logs and financial data showed that Green paid a woman in the Philippines to view the abuse of a nine-year-old girl and a 15-year-old boy.

When arranging for the abuse to take place, he made specific requests for how it should be carried out.

Late last year, in November 2020, Green pleaded guilty to seven counts, including attempting to facilitate the commission of a child sex offence and possessing indecent images of children.

This week, on Thursday, January 14, at Reading Crown Court, he was jailed for three years and four months.

He is also subject to a sexual harm prevention order and has been placed on the sex offender register for life.
