Paedophile Philip Crabtree has been jailed for nearly nine years after he encouraged like-minded perverts to rape a six-year-old boy in America live on the internet.
The 35-year-old was part of a sick ring where horrific child abuse images and videos were streamed online.
And on one occasion, he watched on his laptop as a child thousands of miles away was subjected to a brutal sex attack.
The defendant was caught after police identified users worldwide including in the U.S. and Canada.
Officers in Staffordshire then raided his Stoke home and uncovered hundreds of indecent images of children.
Now Crabtree, of Vale Street, has been sentenced to eight years and eight months in prison with an additional one year on licence.
