UK man sentenced to life imprisonment over raping a baby, sharing images of his abuse

Date:

A man from Runcorn, the United Kingdom, has been punished with life imprisonment for 27 years after he confessed to raping and sexually assaulting a baby.

The accused have been identified as Gareth Davis, aged about 43 years, who was arrested in October 2021 after the National Crime Agency of the United Kingdom has discovered him over uploading the number of incidents of children (IIOC) online.

The photos that Davis has taken showed him raping and sexually assaulting a baby. He had also taken naked pictures of another young child.

NCA officers arrested him after identifying IIOC collection with an online contact.

According to the sources, a further 512 IIOC were found on his mobile phone, along with screenshots of Google image searches for ‘baby models’ and ‘underground child modelling photos’.

On 3 December 2021, Davis pleaded guilty to the rape of a child under 13, sexual assault by penetration of a child under 13 and three counts of making IIOC.

He was sentenced yesterday at Chester Crown Court to a life term of 27 years in prison.

He will remain on a licence, and the sex offenders register for life if ever released.

Kerry Gilgrist from the National Crime Agency said: “The abuse carried out by Davis is nothing short of horrendous.

“He raped a baby and exploited another child for his own sexual gratification, then went one step further and shared images of his abuse with another like-minded individual online.

“There is no greater priority for the NCA than disrupting sexual offenders and protecting children. I’m pleased that this investigation has ensured Davis has been brought to justice and is now behind bars, where he no longer poses a threat.”
