Depraved man who raped three-year-old girl and sexually abused eight others is sentenced to 14 years
Jayden McCarthy , 18, targeted young children during a two-week reign of terror at the nursery in Torquay, Devon. He was convicted on two counts of raping a boy who was aged between eight and nine some five years earlier.
The monster, who was only 16 at the time, was arrested only after the three-year-old girl he raped told her parents what he had done.
A major police investigation was launched with officers trawling through more than 260 hours of CCTV.
They found 13 incidents of terror, including footage of McCarthy sexually abusing children while applying sun cream or while they were playing on the floor.
After he was arrested, a child came forward to say the ailing teenager had raped him in 2014, five years before McCarthy started at the nursery.
The court previously heard that the demon got the job at the daycare, which cannot be named, in 2019 after providing references and being interviewed by the owners.
The bosses noted that he let children get on him, but the owners attributed this to him being immature. They also noted that he appeared “dumbfounded and very shocked” when the allegations were made against him.
But after the investigation was launched, a worker revealed how he took longer than usual to change the three-year-old girl.
After the allegations came to light, 100 families were contacted during a multi-agency investigation launched by the police, the council, Ofsted and the NHS.
Prosecutor Jason Beal told the jury that the sexual assaults ranged from oral rape of a girl to sexual touching of children over their clothes.
In July 2019, a mother innocently asked her daughter about her day at nursery and said, “Jayden put his nipple in my mouth. It tasted gross.”
McCarthy tried to come off slowly during the trial, telling jurors that there was “no truth” to the allegations and that he was within the line of sight of other staff members at all times.
Judge David Evans sentenced him to a total of 14.5 years in juvenile detention, and the victims’ families applauded when the judge said so.
