0 1

A paedophile who filmed himself raping and abusing two toddlers has been jailed for 22 years.

Kyle Fox, 26, was caught in bed with a naked five-year-old boy when police raided his home in the early hours of September 5 2018.

He was snared after uploading a video to a dark web site which was traced back to him by detectives from the National Crime Agency.

Kingston Crown Court heard he used drugs to ‘stupey’ the boy, aged between four and five – traces of cocaine were also found in his hair.

He was also found to have began abusing a girl from when she was 10 months old until she was three.

Fox, from Epsom, Surrey, admitted attacking the children and recording himself abusing them, but tried to claim his memory stick had been stolen and someone else posted the videos online.

A distinctive wristband he was wearing, and examination by a speech analyst of his voice, helped investigators to identify him from the abuse videos.

Prosecutor Martin Hooper said Fox had studied for a diploma in childcare – which he failed – and tried to lay the blame of the abuse at the children’s feet.

Fox had previously pleaded guilty to all 22 charges, which included seven counts of rape against the boy as well as six counts of assault by penetration and specimen counts of multiple sexual assaults.

The charges against the girl included five counts of assault by penetration.

Fox was sentenced to 14 years imprisonment for his offences against the boy and eight years for the offences against the girl, which are to run consecutively.

Fox was also jailed for nine years for creating 12,998 indecent images of children, including 4,743 category A images or videos – the most severe – which will run concurrently with his other sentence.

Judge Georgina Kent commended National Crime Agency investigators who arrested him and stopped the ‘imminent’ abuse of other children.

She said: ‘You recorded your offending so I have full descriptions of the shocking and dreadful abuse that you perpetrated on them.

‘The evidence shows that you uploaded over 6,000 videos to the file sharing website and in return gained credits which enabled you to view other content.’

Files discovered on his seized laptop after Fox was arrested included images of the boy being attacked.

A sofa bed where the girl had been abused on the videos was also found in a search of his home.

The court also heard that Fox had a large collection of porn involving these two victims and other children.

Lionel Blackman, defending, said that Fox did not seek to ‘suggest any moral blame to the children’ during his police interviews but instead had been ‘extremely candid’ in his answers.

After the hearing the National Crime Agency said that its National Cyber Crime Unit, working with partners in South Korea and the United States, had taken down the site which contained 145,000 videos of child sex abuse and had been viewed by offenders millions of times.

Fox will serve two thirds of his 22 year jail sentence before being considered for parole and will still serve an extra two years on extended licence.
