• The 37-year-old woman pleaded guilty to raping and abusing a young girl alongside two men
  • The woman planned to charge for the abuse of children and then use the money to purchase a house with a cellar
  • She discussed  with a man her desire to "kidnap, rape, torture, kill and then eat children"

A 37-year-old woman in the U.K. who sexually abused a little girl plotted to charge for child abuse to raise money for a house with a basement.

Vicki Bevan, of Merseyside, England, pleaded guilty to raping and abusing the unnamed young girl alongside two Merseyside men, Paul Rafferty, 52, and Tony Hutton, 42, Liverpool Echo reported.

She filmed and photographed the victim being abused, and the images were shared online and later found by authorities on a mobile phone.

Bevan also spent time discussing with another man their desire to "kidnap, rape, torture, kill and then eat children" after sexually abusing them.

Bevan was caught out after police seized a phone from a man, not before the court, which revealed sexualized WhatsApp conversations with Bevan and indecent images.

"The contents of some of those chats is truly, truly shocking. Even allowing for some people’s capacity for perversion - some of these conversations are beyond disturbing," Judge Andrew Menary, the recorder of Liverpool, was quoted as saying by the outlet.

When her phone was checked, police found Bevan’s conversations with other men in which she spoke of wanting to hurt children. One of the exchanges between Bevan and Rafferty showed them discussing abusing the victim, the judge said.

Bevan planned to charge for the abuse of children and then use the money to purchase a house with a cellar, where together they could carry out their plans, the court heard.

"Much of this will have been sexual fantasy, however horrific ... but these were not just fantasies. They became to an extent a reality," the judge told Bevan, adding that the online discussions led to the serious sexual abuse of a very young child. "In other words, your fantasies became a nightmare reality for her."

Bevan pleaded guilty to a total of 34 sex offenses, including one joint rape charge and five sex assaults with Rafferty and one charge of sex abuse jointly with Hutton.

Judge Menary ruled that Bevan is a dangerous offender and said he was satisfied a sentence of life imprisonment was required, given the nature of the risk she presents and the fact it cannot be reliably estimated how long she will remain a danger. He imposed a minimum term behind bars of 10 years and 8 months.

He warned her that this did not mean she would then be automatically released and it was the earliest date she can apply for parole.

Bevan's parents said that their daughter was raised in a loving environment and knowing right from wrong and that their lives have "fallen apart" because of her crimes. As a result of her actions, Bevan's parents said they want nothing more to do with her.

Rafferty pleaded guilty to one joint rape charge with Bevan, two joint sex assaults with Bevan and six of making indecent images of children. He was sentenced to 10 years in prison with an extended license of four years.

Hutton, a married father of three, was sentenced to four years in prison after pleading guilty to one charge of sexual assault along with Bevan and three counts of making indecent images of children.
