A British court on Friday sentenced seven men to prison for raping and sexually abusing young children, including babies. The men shared the abuse online through pictures and live streamed videos.
These child abuse and rape videos were streamed online between 2013-2014 and in some cases a “date rape” drug was forcefully given to babies.
Bristol Crown Court’s Judge Julian Lambert said that the men had engaged in “some of the most depraved and grossly deviant behavior imaginable”.
While directly addressing the men Lambert said, “Your thoughts and deeds are beyond human instinct and reason, and are evil beyond rational understanding”.
The men were convicted of twenty nine child sex abuse offenses, including multiple rape of a child under thirteen, conspiracy to rape, sexual assault, and making and showing indecent images of children.
The men, who range in ages between thirty one to fifty one years old and were handed down prison sentences of two to twenty four years.
