A pharmacist was arrested, charged and convicted of rape after recording himself raping a young girl, prosecutors in the United Kingdom said.

Now, the man who repeatedly raped the two-year-old girl, has been jailed.

35-year-old Jeremy Oketch of Whalley Range, Manchester, pleaded guilty to rape at an earlier hearing.

He was sentenced to 15 years in prison at the Manchester Crown Court.

He was also ordered to sign the Sex Offender’s Register for life.

Police were alerted to a video that showed Oketch raping the toddler at a house in Manchester.

Oketch, who worked as a pharmacist, was immediately arrested at his home and his computers was seized.

Officers from the Greater Manchester Police’s High-Tech Crime Unit examined a number of computers seized from Oketch’s home, which contained videos that Oketch had recorded of himself raping the two-year-old girl.

The videos were recorded on two different dates.

As part of the investigation, the toddler – who is now three years old – was taken into the care of Social Services and appropriate safeguarding measures are now in place to protect her.

Detective Chief Inspector Colin Larkin said: “Having had to watch these videos, they are without doubt some of the most harrowing, sickening images you could ever see.

“Anyone would share our revulsion over these wicked acts being committed upon such a young child.

“The judge said that the footage was exceptionally disturbing, horrific, graphic and grotesque and that nobody, not a member of the public, a police officer or a judge should ever have to watch such material. I can only echo those views.

“I cannot even begin to comprehend what would possess a man to commit such vile, repulsive acts upon an innocent two-year-old girl who could neither understand what was happening, nor fight back nor even tell anyone what had happened.

“Recording the abuse proves Oketch pre-planned what he was going to do to that little girl. That he did this not once but twice, proves that this man is utterly devoid of any conscience.

“Were it not for the fact these horrendous videos were found, he could have still be abusing this innocent young girl today.”
