Jail for internet paedophile who paid for webcam sex acts

|News, Sexual offences

A 54-year-old married man who paid Filipino prostitutes to sexually abuse children on webcam has been sentenced to nine years' imprisonment at Cardiff Crown Court. He was also made subject to an indefinite Sexual Harm Prevention Order.

Jonathan Lloyd Kay had contacted the prostitutes via the internet and paid them to perform sex acts on camera.

He also requested that they involve children as young as five, giving them detailed instructions about how to carry out the abuse.

When police seized Kay’s computer they also discovered an indecent image of a child and extreme pornographic images.

During the investigation, police became aware that he had lied to them about the number of computer devices he had access to and had thrown a computer into a water-filled quarry.

Leanne Jonathan, of the CPS, said: “Although the sexual exploitation happened in another country, we made sure that Jonathan Kay did not evade justice.

“He showed no regard for the children being abused, repeatedly paying to watch sexual acts to satisfy his own sickening fantasies.

“The strong case presented by the CPS allowed the jury to reach these verdicts.”
