Joshua Gould, from Essex, abused three children and documented the abuse over a number of years for his own sick pleasure.
The nonce, 23, confessed he was “wrong in the head” when he was confronted by cops.
Shouts of “not enough” rung down for the gallery as he was led away from the dock after being sentenced at Basildon Crown Court, reports Essex Live.
Detectives found 1,300 sick images of children being abused and 52 extreme pornographic images which involved a female dog, on an external hard drive.
Gould’s vile abuse images featured children as young as three-months-old.
He also exposed himself to a child while playing hide-and-seek – which he also filmed.
“You said you were an opportunist, but that’s not what I have seen”
Judge Samantha Leigh
Gould pleaded guilty to eight charges including one count of attempted rape of a child under the age of 18 months.
It also included one count of possessing pornographic images of intercourse with a dead or alive animal.
Essex Police raided his address on Seabrooke Rise, Grays, last year after tracing the IP address that was found to be uploading indecent images of children.
He admitted in a police interview the possession of the indecent images and was adamant his girlfriend, who he lived with at the time, knew nothing whatsoever of his disgusting crimes.
Gould moaned to officers he was “wrong in the head” and confessed he took “pleasure” from the images.
He wrote a letter to the police officer investigating him and explained what they would find on his devices, which included a mobile phone, a laptop and an external hard drive.
Brave cops then had to comb through the images – and shockingly discovered the images contained himself abusing children.
Cowardly nonce Gould refused to answer questions asked by police, and instead wrote down the name of the child he attempted to rape.
Cops then had to track down the toddlers he had abused, including one in a video of him exposing himself during a game of hide of seek.
They found he had abuse at least three children in the videos and pictures.
Police found more than a thousand indecent images on Gould’s devices – including 52 extreme pornographic images involving animals and oral sex or sexual intercourse with an adult female dog.
Shameful sicko Gould looked down at the floor when he stood at Basildon Crown Court’s dock on Wednesday, January 30.
His defence Mark Savage claimed he “loathes himself” for what he had done and was “disgusted” by his own behaviour.
Sentencing, Judge Samantha Leigh said: “Parents had to identify their children from the photographs, which of course makes it worse in their mind.
“They have now seen a very small part of what you did to their daughters.
“This has been going on for a number of years, and you said you were an opportunist, but that’s not what I have seen from some of the footage and from the span of time.”
Gould will also spend eight years on licence and is subject to an indefinite Sexual Harm Prevention Order.
