Paedophile abused toddler while girl filmed him
A "dangerous and sickening" paedophile who abused a toddler in the back of a van while a teenage girl filmed him has had his jail sentence increased.
Kristopher Janemolested the very young girl, who was "screaming and inconsolable" in footage recorded by his 17-year-old accomplice.
Jane, aged 31, of Warwick Road, Keynsham, also abused two other girls and was caught with more than 2,000 images of child abuse.
He was branded a danger to society and handed a 22-year extended sentence for public protection at Cambridge Crown Court in March, after admitting a catalogue of child sex offences.
They included sexual activity with a 14-year-old girl and sexually assaulting a 13-year-old girl.
His sentence was made up of a 14-year jail term and eight years on extended licence after his release.
But his jail term was increased to 18 years yesterday at the Court of Appeal in London, by judges who said his original term was "not long enough".
The court heard Jane abused his victims in a series of horrific incidents - including one filmed by the 17-year-old, who was said to be "under his influence".
The girl separately molested a seven-year-old girl, which she also filmed and sent to Jane.
Jane admitted four counts of sexually assaulting a child, two of sexual activity with a child, one of inciting a child to engage in sexual activity and five of making indecent images of children.
The teenager - who cannot be identified - was handed four years' youth detention after admitting two counts of sexually assaulting a child, two of making indecent images and two of distributing indecent images.
She applied to have her sentence cut, but was told by Lady Justice Hallett that her offending was "too serious" for any shorter term of detention.
Increasing Jane's jail term, the judge said the case was "truly shocking", involving serious abuse of more than one victim, and justified a term of 18 years.
Sitting with Mr Justice Warby and Mrs Justice Cheema-Grubb, she added: "This was a long sentence but, given the gravity of the offending, in our judgment it was not long enough."
Jane's eight-year extended licence remains in place, resulting in a 26-year extended sentence.
He will serve at least 12 years behind bars and will only be released at that stage if the Parole Board is satisfied he no longer poses a danger to the public.
After the hearing Detective Constable Leah Meftah, from the Child Abuse Investigation and Safeguarding Unit (CAISU), said: "Jane is a very dangerous individual who has a clear sexual interest in young girls.
"The victims have been very brave in talking to us about what happened to them and I would like to thank them for this."
She said she hoped the increased sentence "brings some comfort to the girls and will help them in moving on from their ordeal."
