Paedophile swapped child rape videos in ‘TeenTinyGirl’ group chat
A paedophile swapped videos of young children being raped in a sickening group chat called ‘TeenTinyGirl’.
In the perverted chat on Kik Messenger Simon Dickinson and other paedophiles would comment on child sex abuse videos calling them “sexy”.
The 44-year-old’s disgusting behaviour was revealed after he used Snapchat to share pictures of child sex abuse, and police were able to trace his IP address.
After a raid the full extent of his criminal content was uncovered and police found that he had also sent links to videos of child rape to seven other people from his computer.
Derek Jones, prosecuting today at Liverpool Crown Court, said Merseyside Police received intelligence that a “user of the Snapchat social media app uploaded indecent images”.
Officers were able to track the IP address from the account to Dickinson’s address, where they arrested him on November 24 last year when he initially denied any involvement.
Mr Jones said there were 58 images of child rape, eight of which were videos and 266 other images of child sex abuse, 15 of which were videos.
The court heard the children in the videos were between the ages of six and 10.
Dickinson was part of a group chat on Kik Messenger called ‘TeenTinyGirl’ in which the members would share sickening videos and images of children being raped.
Comments in the group included “nice”, “sexy” and “want to trade”.
Mr Jones said Dickinson commented “nice” after a video of a child being raped was shared in the group.
Dickinson had also sent links to videos of children being raped to seven other people “shortly before the arrest”.
Mr Jones said: “Recipients of those links seemed to indicate they had received them and comments put down showed their approval of the images.”
The sick paedophile had shared 75 child rape videos and 81 videos of other forms of child sex abuse as well as one still image of an adult woman being raped.
Dickinson has two previous, unrelated, convictions involving drugs and alcohol from 2002 and 2008.
Dickinson, of Dwerryhouse Lane, West Derby, admitted three counts of making indecent images of children, possession of indecent images of children, possession of an extreme pornographic image, two counts of distributing indecent images of children and possession of indecent photographs of children for show.
Judge David Aubrey, QC, sentencing, said: “Notwithstanding the fact you may be an isolated and lonely man you were immersed in sexual depravity concerning children.”
The judge said that despite Dickinson’s denials he was “obtaining sexual gratification” from the indecent images.
Judge Aubrey said: “Each and every image that you were in possession of to which I have had made reference represented the abuse of a child.”
The judge said he was “perpetuating the abuse of such children”.
Judge Aubrey said: “You were actively involved, immersed, in that network specifically designed to facilitate the communication of the sharing of such images of children and that in my judgement is a serious aggravating factor.”
Dickinson was jailed for two years and six months.
He was put on the Sex Offenders Register for life and ordered to adhere to a Sexual Harm Prevention Order for the same period.
