A paedophile who planned to watch the “depraved” rape and sexual abuse of a young girl has been jailed for five-and-a-half years.
Kyle Hussain, of Greenwood Meadow, Chinnor, admitted trying to meet up with members of a Wiltshire-based paedophile ring in 2011.
The 32-year-old viewed and shared images of child abuse over the Internet and asked the men who created them if he could “share” one of their victims.
Rachel Drake, prosecuting, said the former security guard was in contact with convicted child abusers Simon Davies and Nicholas Cordery.
She said in 2012 they received indeterminate prison sentences for sex offences, including rape of a child under 13 and conspiracy to rape.
Judge Peter Ross, sitting at Oxford Crown Court, said chat logs between them and Hussain showed he was arranging to attend an “event” where a nine-year-old would be abused.
He said on Friday that Cordery owned an “isolated farmhouse” where “events of sexual depravity” would take place, sometimes involving animals.
Richard Paton-Philip, defending, said his client had planned to watch the rape and abuse of the child only.
Judge Ross jailed Hussain for attempting to arrange or facilitate the commission of a child sex offence, sharing and making indecent images of children, and possessing extreme pornography involving animals.
