An Oxford man wanted to ‘see a boy raped’ while using an online video conferencing platform sentenced
An Oxford man who said he wanted to ‘see a boy raped’ while using an online video conferencing platform has been sentenced following an NCA investigation.
Julian Brewer, aged 28, from Abingdon, Oxfordshire, was sentenced to 14 months imprisonment – suspended for two years, 120 hours’ community service, a 35-hour rehabilitation requirement and an indefinite Sexual Harm Prevention Order.
Brewer was sentenced yesterday (Thursday 15 November) at Oxford Crown Court. He had pleaded guilty to making indecent images of children at an earlier hearing on the 26 October 2018.
The National Crime Agency received information in September 2017, that Brewer was using an online video conferencing platform to view indecent images of children.
Investigators executed a search warrant at his home in John Morris Road and seized computers and mobile phones.
During interview, Brewer admitted to investigators that he watched child abuse videos
Brewer’s devices contained 114 Category A (the most severe) indecent images of children (IIOC), 23 Category B and 23 Category C.
Brewer had streamed videos so that he could rewatch them for his own sexual enjoyment and he told investigators he was sexually attracted to young boys.
Graham Ellis, NCA Operations Manager, yesterday said:
“Brewer had more than 150 images and recordings of children and behind every single image is a child who has been abused.
“NCA officers are dedicated to preventing child abuse and bringing to justice criminals who participate in and perpetuate their suffering.
“Those who view child sex abuse and exploitation on the internet should expect to be found and prosecuted.”
