A man and his girlfriend were jailed in England on Monday after he paid her £64,000 ($ 81,667) for making and supplying him with child pornography images and videos of a child as young as two.

Paula Dos-Reis, 28, regularly sent photos and footage of herself with the girl to her boyfriend Andrew Barker, 53, ever since they got into a relationship in 2012. She received cash in return.

“A man and a woman who worked together to abuse a child have been jailed. Paula Dos-Reis, aged 28 years, and Andrew Barker, aged 53 years, both admitted a string of offences. The pair had struck up a relationship which later developed into Dos-Reis providing abuse images and videos of her with a child in return for payments. The victim was aged between two and six years old when the abuse took place. In total Dos-Reis received around £64,000 in payments from Barker,” a spokesperson of Hertfordshire Constabulary police department said.

Describing the pair’s crimes as “horrendous,” Judge Andrew Goymer sentenced Dos-Reis to jail for six years while Barker for six years and nine months. While both of them were charged with eight counts of “causing a child aged under 13-years-old to engage in sexual activity,” Dos-Reis was also charged with "making and distributing indecent photographs of a child” and two counts of converting criminal property, Watford Observer reported.

The victim is currently receiving specialist support.

The couple was arrested after an investigation by the National Crime Agency, which exposed the abuse.

“This toxic relationship thrived off the sickening abuse of a very young child with Dos-Reis brazenly profiting financially and Barker funding the abuse for his own twisted pleasure. What’s paramount is that the victim is receiving continued support and that those responsible for their suffering undergo treatment while behind bars to lessen the risk they pose to children in the future,” a spokesperson for the agency said.

Detective Sergeant Mike Birch, from Hertfordshire Constabulary’s child online safeguarding team, said, “Dos-Reis and Barker's offending came to our attention via the National Crime Agency as part of a wider investigation they were carrying out into online abuse footage. Dos-Reis met Barker through her work and they began a relationship in 2012. In 2014, the abuse began and continued for three years with Dos-Reis receiving significant payments in return for her despicable crimes,” Daily Mail reported.

“Our main priority in this case was safeguarding the young victim who is now safe and is continuing to receive specialist support as the actions of Dos-Reis and Barker will have a life-long impact on her. Although Dos-Reis and Barker have now been jailed this is not where the case ends as we are now working to seize the money Dos-Reis received under the Proceeds of Crime Act,” he added.
