Pedophile Vile Yeovil shared his child abuse fantasies online


A 39-year-old man from Yeovil has been convicted for downloading child abuse movies.

Jamie Pattinson used the Kik Messenger app to share his disturbing fantasies with other pedophiles.

The warehouse worker’s home was raided by police and when they examined his computer they found hundreds of sickening pictures and videos.

Some of the documents found contained the most extreme forms of abuse of children, including babies, by adults.

Pattinson admitted to being sexually interested in young boys.

He received a community order to Taunton Crown Court and a sexual abuse prevention order. The court was told that he was a realistic prospect of rehabilitation and that an order was the best way to stop his offenses in the future.

The prosecutor, Mr William Hunter, said concerns were raised in 2019 about pedophile conversations on Kik. Police searched Pattinson’s address in January 2020 and seized a number of computer devices.

They found 72 films and images in the most serious category A, 85 in B and 471 in C.

Most of the images were inaccessible and had been uploaded between September 2019 and January 2020.

The age range of children involved was between six months and 16 years old, Mr Hunter said.

Pattinson made a full and candid confession to police.

Mr Harry Ahuja, defending, said Pattinson was ashamed and disgusted by his behavior.

Although there was no medical diagnosis, Mr Ahuja said there were mental health issues with the defendant.

“Much of what he said was purely fanciful,” Mr Ahuja said. “He never intended to execute them.”

The accused, from Huish, has no prior convictions.

He pleaded guilty to three offenses of making indecent images of children.

Judge Paul Cook said: “It is evident that you have shared material with other pedophiles and also shared your sexual interest in child abuse.

“I have seen the description of some of the videos and they are deeply disturbing, very distressing and very sinister.

“For investigators who have to examine this type of material, it is deeply distressing.

“This is not a victimless crime. For every image, a vulnerable child is abused and abused again.”

He said a disturbing feature of the case was that Pattinson returned to viewing indecent footage after being released under investigation.

But he said Pattinson had been cooperative and there were concerns about his mental health.

Probation assessed the defendant as a low risk to re-offend and a realistic prospect of rehabilitation.

Judge Cook said a three-year community order would be longer than any suspended sentence he could issue. The SHPO, controlling its behavior, will last for seven years.
