Pair jailed for raping baby *LINK*

Two babysitters were jailed today for raping a 12-week-old child and taking pictures of the horrific abuse.

Alan Webster, 40, was jailed for life after pleading guilty at St Albans Crown Court to rape, indecent assault, permitting indecent images to be taken of a child and making indecent images in February and March 2004.

His girlfriend Tanya French, 19, was jailed for five years and given an extended licence period of five years after admitting the same charges.

Webster was also found guilty of indecently assaulting a 14-year-old girl who was a regular visitor to the home he shared with French in Hatfield, Herts.

The mother of the baby, who was introduced to French by a friend, initially refused the couple's offer to babysit.

But as a single mother she needed help to look after her child when she moved home and needed to decorate, the court heard.

The mother was unaware of the abuse until detectives visited her home after finding photographs detailing the horrific abuse at Webster's home.

Sentencing Webster, Judge Findlay Baker said: "These offences were committed against the most vulnerable victim it is possible to imagine - a little baby.

"Much of what you did was photographed so you had a record of yourself living out your depraved fantasies.
