A man who filmed himself sexually assaulting a woman while she was sleeping after plying her with alcohol and drugs has been jailed.

Gary Warman, 31 (22.04.86), of Purneys Road, Eltham, has been sentenced to ten years and six months' imprisonment after he pleaded guilty to 17 offences of sexual assault and three counts of making indecent images of children.

Warman was sentenced at Woolwich Crown Court on Friday, 27 October after he pleaded guilty at the same court on 4 October.

The court heard officers from the Met's Online Child Sexual Exploitation and Abuse command (OCSEA) carried out a search warrant at Warman's address on 10 January.

A number of computers, hard-drives and mobile phones were seized from the address and forensically examined.

Officers identified 748 indecent images of children on one of the computers and also found a number of videos which showed Warman subjecting a woman to a series of serious sexual assaults while she was asleep.

Warman had filmed the videos himself on his mobile phone.

He was arrested and subsequently charged on 25 August.

Detective Sergeant Billy Clough from OCSEA led the investigation and said: "Warman is a dangerous, predatory sex offender who repeatedly targeted a woman while she was asleep.

"The lengthy sentence handed to Warman reflects the severity of his crimes. This case demonstrates the Met's commitment to prosecuting perpetrators of sexual abuse and those who use the internet to download indecent images of children."
