Sick paedophile asked ‘mum’ if he could rape her two daughters

A vile pervert who asked a mum if he could rape her daughters has been jailed for seven years.

Colin Waring, of Thornleigh Avenue, Eastham, shared a child rape video during depraved internet messages with a woman called “Jennie”.

The disgusting dad-of-three went on to tell Jennie he wanted to rape her two girls, aged eight and 12, before he shared an image of his penis with “Ped Dad” – short for paedophile dad – scrawled on it.

However, what the pervert didn’t realise was that he was talking to police officers the whole time, who snared Waring for his crimes.

Liverpool Crown Court heard Waring spoke to the officer, who posed as Jennie on chat service Kik Messenger, between April 30 and May 5 last year.

He said he wanted Jennie to let him rape her eldest child “Emily”, who was supposedly 12, and her youngest daughter “Rachael”, who was said to be eight.

Waring sent her the two indecent images on May 4, 2020

One was a “graphic” Category A video – the most serious category involving child rape – showing a girl who was just four-years-old.

The other was a Category B photo of a girl aged around four or five being sexually abused.

When arrested and confronted with the evidence, Waring pleaded guilty to two counts of distributing indecent images of children.

However, he denied two counts of intentionally encouraging the commission of an offence, namely the rape of a child under 13.

Waring stood trial and told a jury he knew it was an undercover officer and what he said in the conversation was “fictional”.

Frances Willmott, prosecuting during the trial, said this was false and he had in fact intended to carry out the two rapes.

The jury convicted him by a majority of 11-1, following a five-day trial and more than four and a half hours of deliberation.

Waring breathed heavily in the dock and appeared to be hyperventilating when the guilty verdicts were returned.

Judge Murray said Waring did believe Jennie was the mum of two young girls.

He said: “You asked her whether her children were sexually active.

“You said you wanted to commit the offence of rape of a child under the age of 13 with those children.

“You sent photos of your penis with the word “Ped dad” written on your penis by you, written by you to represent “paedophile dad”.”

The judge told Waring he had directed jurors not to convict him of the two offences unless they were sure “it was your intention to commit the offences of rape of a child under 13”.

He added: “The jury were clearly sure that was your intention.”

Judge Murray said if Waring had actually raped the two girls, he would have jailed him for 11 years.

The judge said he had to reduce this to reflect the fact there was not actually any child involved.

He said Waring was “an offender of particular concern” and jailed him for seven years, with an extended one year on licence.

This type of sentence means he must serve at least half of the term in prison – three and a half years – before he can apply to the Parole Board for his release

He will only be released before the end of the seven years if he is no longer considered to be a risk and will then serve an additional year on licence.

Judge Murray ordered Waring to sign on the Sex Offenders Register and to comply with a Sexual Harm Prevention Order for life.
