Pervert’s message to vile Vicki Bevan after watching child abuse video

A vile paedophile from Tiverton said he “would like to be there” after watching a video of a little girl being being sexually abused.

Christopher Smith, 31, sent messages to paedophile, Vicki Bevan, online and responded to a clip of her abusing a young boy with “that’s hot” and to one of her abusing a girl with “I would like to be there”.

Bevan was part of a paedophile ring based in St Helens and carried out some of her appalling sexual fantasies alongside Paul Rafferty and Tony Hutton by raping and abusing a young girl.

Bevan also spent time discussing with another man their desire to “kidnap, rape, torture, kill and then eat children” after sexually abusing them.

She also discussed “charging money” for the abuse of the girl to “purchase a house with a cellar” in which to carry out the depraved acts

The vile woman made contact with Smith, who lived 230 miles away, on internet chat rooms before sending at least two clips to him.

Charlie Barrass-Evans, prosecuting, said Smith was caught by an undercover police operation, where officers posed as chatroom users on Kik.

Smith was using the hashtag andysmith01 and offered to “trade” child images before being traced through his phone.

Smith sent three child abuse images and said he had “personal stuff” before moving the conversation to Snapchat. He refused to give police the PIN number of one of his phones when he was arrested.

A forensic download identified the videos from Bevan, along with 36 child abuse images or videos.

Smith of Clare Drive, Tiverton, Devon, admitted two counts of distribution and four of making, by downloading, indecent images of children and was jailed for two years and four months by Judge Peter Johnson at Exeter Crown Court.

Bevan, 37, of Newtown, St Helens, was jailed for life with a minimum term of ten years at Liverpool Crown Court in May this year.

Accomplices Paul Rafferty, 62, and Tony Hutton, 42, were jailed for ten and four years respectively.

Judge Johnson said: “You exchanged messages with Vicki Bevan, who is now serving a life sentence, and it seems there were real time exchanges going on which at the very least were encouraging her to abuse children in which she was telling you what she had been doing.

“This sentence could not have been suspended because of the proximity between you and the maker of the images.”
