Sex offender jailed for child rape messages
A third man has been jailed following a National Crime Agency (NCA) investigation into an internet chat room where the rape of a child was streamed in real time.
Christian Luecking Johnson, 36, of Raynes Park, London, was not online during the attack, but logged on shortly before and afterwards, forensic evidence uncovered by NCA officers showed.
He pleaded guilty in July at Kingston Crown Court to sending messages which encouraged the rapist to bring the victim of the attack into a private chat with him.
Luecking Johnson wrote that he “would love to see u bring ur boy in a pvt room, only u and me”.
He was sentenced at the same court to 20 months’ imprisonment today.
He was also made subject to a sexual harm prevention order, placed on the sex offenders register for 10 years and banned from working with children or vulnerable adults for life.
His conviction follows the imprisonment in America in February this year of William Chandler Augusta, the Pennsylvania man who streamed the footage of himself attacking the boy to the chat room.
Augusta was sentenced for a range of offences and could spend up to 30 years in jail.
His victim was identified by police officers in the US and protective measures have been taken.
Two other men, youth worker Darren Williams and primary school teacher Wayne Brookes, have been jailed for 11 years and 1 year 8 months respectively after NCA investigators showed they were online in the chat room as the rape was streamed.
Colin Radcliffe, operation manager at the NCA, said: “One by one, dangerous criminals connected to this terrible event, in which a rape was streamed on the internet, are being put in prison.
“I’d like to remind everyone that this was a chat room where offenders hid behind usernames and thought they were hidden from justice.
“There is no hiding. Those who exploit and abuse of children for sexual pleasure should expect to be found and prosecuted."
