Cameron Kyle Edwards, aged 19, committed rape against a 14-year-old girl at a house in a North Yorkshire village in December 2020. The young victim was able to point him out to the police, resulting in Edwards’ immediate arrest on the same day.

After apprehending him, law enforcement found 6,200 inappropriate photos on Edwards’ phone, a large portion of which were categorized as level A, the most severe classification. Additionally, Edwards had captured himself committing sexual assault against a 16-year-old female in a different incident.

Edwards, of Selby Road, Holme-on-Spalding-Moor, pleaded guilty to eleven sex offences when he appeared at York Crown Court on November 7 in 2022. The offences include one count of rape, three counts of assault by penetration, three counts of sexual assault, three counts of making indecent photographs of children and one count of possessing extreme pornography.

On April 28, he was given a 65 month custodial sentence in a Young Offenders Institute. Furthermore, he was issued with a Sexual Harm Prevention Order and is required to sign the sex offenders register for an indefinite period of time.

North Yorkshire Police investigating officer Detective Constable Martin Willoughby, said: “First of all I would like to comment on the bravery of the two victims which helped secure the conviction of Edwards today. The pattern of behaviour shown by Edwards is extremely worrying and demonstrated how it quickly escalated into the serious offences which he will now spend time in prison for.

“I know the sentence will never undo the anguish Edwards put his victims through but I hope it will go some way to reassure them, knowing he now off the streets of North Yorkshire for some time.”
