A COVENTRY woman who sent appalling child porn video clips including an absolutely horrific one of two young boys being sexually mutilated has been jailed.

Landrine Ndingambote had pleaded guilty at Warwick Crown Court to five charges of possessing indecent images of children and two of distributing them.

She also admitted possessing and publishing images of extreme pornography which included acts of bestiality.

Ndingambote (28) of North Street, Stoke, Coventry, was jailed for 21 months and ordered to register as a sex offender for ten years and made subject to a sexual offences prevention order banning her, among other things, from working with children.

Prosecutor Steven Bailey said in November last year someone contacted the police to report that indecent images of children had been sent to their phone.

They had come from a phone registered to Ndingambote, originally from the Congo but is now a British citizen.

Officers raided her home and seized four phones.

Interviewed before the phones were analysed, she said she had received a clip via Whatsapp and told a friend who asked her to forward it via Facebook.

But she said that because she did not know much about technology, she did not send it as a Facebook message to that one person but posted it on Facebook so anyone could see it.

Ndingambote, who said she had also been using her phone to try to find work as a dinner lady, said she removed the image when people objected to it.

Videos on her phone included a boy aged four or five having oral sex and simulating intercourse with a girl of about 16.

Other images of sexual mutilation of boys aged about five or six are possibly the most horrific and distressing ever to have been described at the court.

Of the beastiality pictures, she said she did not know they were illegal, although she thought they were ‘wrong,’ adding that she found them distasteful and that she did not even like cats and dogs.

Mark Jones, defending, said: “There were clearly awful, distressing images, and she thought this when she sent them.  She does not get any gratification from such images.

“She has not requested them; they’ve simply been sent to her. She is appalled by the images and doesn’t send them on other than to show her friends what disgusting images she’s received.”

But Recorder Adrian Redgrave QC said: “The problem I have is, having received these images, she could have simply taken them, if she had wished, to the police, instead of sending them on six separate occasions to other people.

“She has no control over any further distribution by the person to whom she is sending them.”

Jailing Ndingambote, Recorder Redgrave told her: “Children would not be subjected to the appalling abuse and cruelty that is shown in some of these films if some people did not derive perverted pleasure from them.

“I will accept that these films were sent to you not at your invitation, but once you had viewed them you saw the extent of the abuse, both of children and of animals, and you chose to pass them on to something like seven other people.

“I accept it wasn’t for commercial profit, but it is part of the duty of the court to emphasise to the public at large the seriousness of involvement in passing on these appalling images.”
