School governor and Christian children’s charity trustee exposed as paedophile who watched babies being abused

A school governor and trustee of a Christian children’s charity found with more than 100,000 child abuse images has been jailed for 18 months.

Trevor Joyes is a former foundation governor for Almondsbury Primary School and was also a trustee and active member of Incredible Kids for several years.

But for five years the 66-year-old, of Ellan Hay Road in Bradley Stoke, was busy at home downloading a horrid stash of films and photos depicting youngsters as young as 12 months old being sexually abused.

Joues pleaded guilty to five charges involving possessing obscene pictures and movies.

They included extreme pornographic images involving animals and child abuse images in the most serious category.

Judge Julian Lambert said it was some of the worst material he has had to view.

He told Joyes: “You sought out material from the very darkest edges of cyberspace.”

Imposition of a Sexual Harm Prevention Order, designed to prohibit further offending, is due to be considered in November.

Chloe Griggs, prosecuting, said police found evidence of Joyes streaming child abuse material and knocked on his door.

He consented to his home being searched and said: “You’ll find a lot of pictures. There’s nothing physical with children.

“I know a lot of children, I have no feelings to do anything towards them.”

A forensic search of his Samsung hard-drive and Dell computer revealed some 82,000 child abuse images deemed to be in all categories of concern from A to C.

In highest category A he had 20,528 images and 1,650 movies.

in category B he had 20,185 images and 725 movies.

In lowest category C he had 42,256 images and 234 movies.

Joyes also had 108 prohibited cartoon images of boys and girls being abused.

And he had 57 extreme pornographic images of females with dogs and horses.

Due to the sheer volume of files 40,346 images were uncategorised, including 37,000 child abuse pictures and 2,557 child abuse movies.

It was established the material was obtained, using computer search terms such as “Pedo” and “”eight-year-old raped”, between May 2012 and November last year.

There was also evidence he had access to an online conferencing and chat facility, with explicit messages from him and scope to exchange videos.
