Prolific Ash Vale paedophile ‘abused children as young as five’

A prolific paedophile from Ash Vale, Guildford who abused children as young as five has been jailed.

63 year-old Nicholas Brown of Cypress Grove has been sentenced to 12 years in prison.

At Guildford Crown Court he pleaded guilty to 12 counts of arranging or facilitating the commission of a child sex offence and 5 counts of making indecent images of children. 

A long complex investigation uncovered over 600,000 lines of chat communications ordering the sexual abuse of children in the Philippines.

Brown would regularly chat to women in the country who were seeking money.

He would then graphically describe how he would want children present in the chats to be abused and abuse each other.

Brown not only sought out those who were willing to abuse their own children on webcam but also pursued individuals who were willing to get children ‘off the street’ whilst he was on webcam and then sexually abuse them.

The total amount of money that he had sent to the Philippines for this abuse has been calculated at over £260,000.

Brown will serve nine years of his sentence in prison and the remainder on extended license.

He was also classed as dangerous and a serious threat to the public by the Judge, His Honour Chapple.
