A twisted teenage paedophile exchanged sickening fantasies about newborn babies in text messages with a fellow pervert online, claiming: "I'd rape 10-a-day ha ha".
Alan Gray, 19, fantasised about kidnapping, raping and murdering babies - some of them only "days old" - and accessed almost 20,000 horrific child abuse images of young children and infants.
A court heard yesterday that a psychologist claimed he was virtually beyond rehabilitation because
his “deeply disturbing” perversions are so entrenched.
The Daily Record reports that he is being sent to the High Court for sentencing – after a sickened sheriff declared his the worst sexual offences case he has ever heard.
Gray’s lawyer described his behaviour as “abhorrent, appalling brutal and repugnant” - and accepted a prison sentence was inevitable.
Gray, from Greenock, organised videos of sadistic sexual assaults on babies into folders on his laptop computer.
He exchanged hideous text messages with another vile deviant where they discussed the most extreme sexual violence against “days old” babies.
In one chilling message, he stated: “I’d rape 10-a-day ha ha.”
Gray – who began accessing online pornography when he was 13 – revelled in an online exchange with a fellow pervert on the Kik Messenger app, texting: “I’d kill 25 newborns a night. No mercy.”
He added: “They’re just there for us to abuse.”
In another Kik conversation, he tormented a user who stated that she was 13.
The court heard that Gray had 19,884 images - made up of 16,120 still pictures and 3,764 videos.
These included 1,864 pictures and 2,254 moving images of category A abuse - the worst level.
The age range of the children who were abused was less than a year to 12 years, the court was told.
Gray was arrested at home as part of an intelligence-led police cyber crime operation last June.
Greenock sheriff Derek Hamilton told Gray: “The narration of the images in this case is the worst I have ever heard.
Gray, who admitted his offences – was remanded in custody.
