Toddler rapist Paul Wilson to face life in prison
A paedophile nursery worker who raped a toddler in his care and built up an online "community" to incite the sexual abuse of young girls has been warned to expect a life sentence.
Paul Anthony Wilson (20), was told he would "almost inevitably" receive an indeterminate jail term when he is sentenced by a High Court judge next month.
After the nursery assistant pleaded guilty to two counts of rape and 45 charges relating to the grooming of more than 20 girls, police confirmed that he had used a mobile phone to record the abuse of the toddler.
Officers said the two recordings were seized in January when Wilson was arrested for blackmailing a teenage girl into performing sex acts via a webcam.
Detectives admit they were shocked at the level of depravity of images found on the phone and computers used by Wilson, who even posed as a model agency scout to befriend some victims.
The rapist, who worked at the Little Stars Nursery in Nechells, Birmingham, for around 18 months, is known to have abused the toddler at his workplace.
Wilson, of Newbold Croft, Nechells, was remanded in custody and is scheduled to be sentenced on July 27.
