A prolific Dorset paedophile who travelled to the Philippines and filmed himself sexually abusing children as young as eight has been found guilty at Dorchester Crown Court.
The court heard how David Shepherd, 60 and of Bridport, would fly to the Philippines and record himself committing serious sexual offences, including rape, against young children.
Shepherd also paid for and directed live shows over the internet in which children as young as 17-months old were sexually abused. He was also found with a large collection of movies that he had produced, and tens of thousands of indecent images and videos of children on his computer and hard drives that he had downloaded.
Following a trial he was found guilty of 22 counts of sexual offences against children including rape.
He is due to be sentenced at the same court on Wednesday 31st August.
