The son of a vicar has been jailed after he persuaded a teenage girl to have sex with her dog.
Noah Yabbacome, 24, was arrested at his father’s vicarage in Newport, Lincoln, where police also found 800 pictures of children on his laptop.
He was initially given bail in February 2013 but he then borrowed a friend’s iPod and downloaded another 700 child porn images.
He admitted two charges of attempting to incite a child to engage in sexual activity, two charges of possession indecent images of children, and six charges of making indecent images.
Jailing him for 12 months at Lincoln Crown Court, Judge John Pini QC said: ‘The public view this sort of offending with horror and justifiably so.
‘Those who say it is purely on the internet and fantasy are missing the point.
‘These images involve actual physical contact with real girls which resulted in serious sexual abuse of very young children causing incalculable harm.’
The court heard Yabbacome had regularly contacted the young victim while online at St Nicholas Vicarage in Newport, Lincoln, between April 2012 and June 2014.
Police were unable to establish the identity of the person with whom Yabbacome had been communicating and were unable to prove that the internet conversation was with a 15-year-old.
Detective sergeant Vicky Midgley, of Lincolnshire Police, said: ‘The breadth and gravity of the young man’s offending, especially as he offended on bail, makes this one of the most horrific cases I have been involved with.
‘He is a depraved individual. Some of the detail Officers have had to consider as part of the investigation is amongst the most hideously graphic I have seen.’
