Sheffield: Two Plead Guilty To Sex Offences Against A Child
A man and a woman have pleaded guilty to sexual offences against a young child, aged only one year and 10 months at the time the pair carried out their appalling crimes.
Ryan Walsh, 27, of Bowden Wood Road, Bowden Wood, pleaded guilty to sexual assault of a child under 13 and producing an indecent image of a child.
Kayleigh Shaw, 21, from Arbourthorne, pleaded guilty to producing an indecent image of a child, distributing an indecent image of a child and failing to protect a child from abuse.
Officers discovered the indecent images of the child in 2013, as part of the South Yorkshire Police investigation, entitled Operation Klan, that concluded in December last year with the two offenders pleading guilty to 55 sexual offences against teenage boys across the country dating back to 2005.
Walsh has been remanded and Shaw bailed until they are due to appear at Sheffield Crown Court to be sentenced on Tuesday, 9 December.
DC Jo Bedford investigating said:
'The depraved actions of Walsh and Shaw are utterly sickening and inexcusable.
'I can only hope the child will have been of such a young age they will not be able to remember the suffering and distress endured.
'I am pleased they have pleaded guilty to the offences and in less than a month will be sentenced for their deplorable actions.'
