Ashington Man distributed video of young girl being raped in car

A pervert who distributed a video of a young girl being raped in a car has been jailed.

Colin Lisle had downloaded dozens of sickening images and also forwarded one video, showing a girl aged between seven and nine being abused by a man.

Newcastle Crown Court heard it was in January 2021 that police attended his home and seized his devices, on which they found 87 of the most serious, category A images, 63 category B images and 36 category C. He had also distributed the category A video, which was one minute and 47 seconds long.

Judge Christopher Prince told Lisle: “Distribution of a video such as that is a serious matter indeed. It enables other people to look at it and further distribute it.

“This is a serious video in that it relates to a young child being raped by an adult male. That is the material you chose to distribute on the internet to facilitate further views and allow further distribution.

“These offences have led to the end of your marriage and the end of contact with your children and grandchildren.”

Lisle, 61, of Saint Clements Court, Ashington, Northumberland, pleaded guilty to one count of distributing an indecent image and three counts of making indecent images. He was jailed for 28 months and must sign the sex offenders register and be subject to a sexual harm prevention order indefinitely.

Jamie Adams, defending, said he has no previous convictions for sex offences and is in “ailing health” and had a heart attack last month. He added: “He will be vulnerable in prison because of his condition.

“He is a low risk of contact offending. He has always worked in hard jobs, working in factories.” The court heard Lisle separated from his wife in January 2021 and his children no longer want to speak to him and he has no contact with his grandchildren.
