A female paedophile has been found guilty of sexually assaulting a three-year-old girl and sending images of the tot to a man she knew.
Evil Sadie Annette Morris, 24, posed naked with the girl and sent the sick pictures from her Blackberry.
Lardy Morris also sent a string of explicit pictures of herself performing sex acts on herself to a number of strangers.
She was caught after officers seized the man’s Blackberry phone after a search warrant at his home in North Wales.
Leicester Crown Court heard the offences took place between July 1 and 31 last year with the photographs involving one category A image – the most serious level – one B and one C.
Morris, of Barwell, Leics., denied one count of sexually assaulting a girl under 13 and three counts of distributing indecent images of children.
But the jury of seven men and five women found Morris guilty on what the judge described as “overwhelming evidence”.
As the verdict was read out at Leicester Crown Court on Tuesday (19/7), the girl’s mother shouted from the public gallery: “I hope you rot in jail you fat cow.”
Judge Nicholas Dean QC said: “One of the worrying factors here is she hasn’t faced up to what she did, in the face of overwhelming evidence.
“The jury has convicted you unanimously of these offences.
“Assault by penetration of a child under 13 is a very serious offence; you no doubt knew that, you’re not unintelligent.
“It’s likely you’ll serve a long term of imprisonment.”
The judge added that although it was not used in evidence, the three-year-old had said something to her mother that was “consistent with the defendant having abused her.”
The defendant had no previous convictions although had once received a reprimand “involving a not dissimilar type of activity.”
Morris showed no emotion but glanced once at the public gallery as she was led out of the court.
The child‘s distraught mother sobbed as the guilty verdicts were announced.
As Morris was led away by a dock officer, the child’s mother leapt to her feet and said:
“I want to look her straight in the eyes.
“I hate you Sadie. I hope you rot in jail. You fat cow.”
During the trial prosecutor Ian Way told the jury: “The defendant took a number of photographs of a three-year-old. Three of those were indecent.
“She sent them via a Blackberry mobile phone messaging facility to a man.
“The matter came to light when the police in North Wales executed a search warrant at the home of the man.
“Officers seized his Blackberry which was forensically examined.
“It revealed a large number of adult females engaging in sexual acts.
“There were a number of images of a child – three of them were indecent.”
Some of the pictures showed a woman appearing to be Morris, naked and engaging in sex acts with the girl.
Morris was identified from a distinctive rose tattoo which was on the abuser’s body.
He claimed that a ring Morris was wearing was also similar to one worn by the person sexually abusing the child in another picture.
A similar ring was also recovered from her address when she was arrested.
Mr Way said police contacted the Blackberry manufacturers as every phone has a unique PIN for messaging – resulting in Morris being identified as the person who sent the images.
Separate images of Morris and also of the child – who is from Leicestershire – were received by the man’s phone.
Mr Way added: “Two of the indecent images had no times and dates because they had been deleted and when recovered by the police had lost their timings.”
Giving evidence in her defence, Morris insisted she only sent images of herself and would never take indecent photographs of a child or distribute such material.
She claimed her phone could have been accessed by a number of other people, indicating someone else was to blame and not her.
Morris told the jury: “I haven’t taken them (photos of the child), I haven’t sent them; how they got there I don’t know.
“People were asking me to take pictures of myself doing different things and I sent some to a couple of random people.
“I found it wasn’t for me and didn’t do it again, I regretted it.”
She was remanded into custody until sentencing on September 9.
