A 43-year-old paedophile who raped and sexually molested a child has been sentenced to life in prison.

After admitting to raping and sexually assaulting a newborn in the United Kingdom, a 43-year-old paedophile was sentenced to life in prison.

Gareth Davis, of Runcorn, was sentenced to life in prison with a minimum period of 27 years on Monday, May 10, after admitting to his heinous acts at Chester Crown Court.

Davis was arrested in October 2021 after officers from the National Crime Agency discovered a lot of indecent images of children (IIOC) on the internet.

Davis had taken some of the photos, which showed him rapping and sexually assaulting a newborn. He had also photographed another small child naked.

Davis shared the IIOC collection with an online contact, who was later identified by NCA detectives and detained.

On his phone, there were another 512 IIOC, as well as screenshots of Google image searches for ‘baby models’ and ‘underground child modeling photos.’

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

If he is ever released, he will be on probation and on the sex offenders list for the rest of his life.

“The torture perpetrated by Davis is nothing short of horrifying,” said Kerry Gilgrist of the National Crime Agency.

“For his own sexual enjoyment, he raped a newborn and abused another youngster, then went one step further and posted photographs of his cruelty with another like-minded people online.”

“Disrupting sexual offenders and protecting children are the highest priorities for the NCA.” I’m glad our inquiry resulted in Davis being brought to justice and now incarcerated, where he no longer poses a threat.” Gilgrist continued.
