Yorkshire paedophile filmed himself having sex with dog

A former Filey man who raped a boy, incited a girl to engage in sexual activity and filmed himself having sexual intercourse with a dog has been jailed.

Kyle Stephenson, aged 29, now of no fixed address, was sentenced to 18 years’ imprisonment at York Crown Court on Friday 16 July 2021

He was due to stand trial this week but decided to plead guilty to the offences against the boy and the girl.

Stephenson also admitted committing bestiality after police recovered conclusive video evidence.

The Judge took this offence into consideration when passing sentence, which also subjected him to a life-time Sexual Harm Prevention Order and placed on the Sex Offenders’ Register indefinitely.

He also has to serve an additional year on licence.

Stephenson was arrested on 31 January 2021 following a complaint made by the boy and he has remained in custody since being charged.

Police enquiries confirmed that all the offence took place between then and January 2020.

Sadly, the dog Stephenson abused has since died from illness.
