A woman who took pictures of her boyfriend raping a girl of 10 was yesterday locked up for 10 years.

Nerissa Williams, 48, even published images of Neil Beecham’s attack online so other paedophiles could see it.

Police who swooped on the 49-year-old’s home after a tip-off found hundreds of sick photos and videos of his victim, who was in court as he was jailed for 12 years.

Officers also discovered pictures of other children and chat logs with sex offenders.

Judge Neil Bidder, at Cardiff crown court, said the pair had robbed the girl, now 17, of her innocence.

He added: “She was raped by Beecham, aided and abetted by Williams, who took photos. These were put on the internet.” He told Beecham: “You are a dangerous paedophile, particularly to young girls.”

Beecham, of Pontllanfraith, Gwent, and Williams, of Trecynon, Aberdare, South Wales, admitted 12 charges including rape.

The judge said their sentences were for the “public’s protection”, meaning they can be released only after a parole board says it is safe.

Williams and Beecham were also ordered to sign the sex offenders’ register for life.
