A woman who earned thousands of pounds sexually abusing a young girl on camera has been jailed for six years.
Christine Callaghan, 33, was paid £2,285 by paedophile Dean Petley in exchange for subjecting a girl under 13 to horrific abuse which she livestreamed on Skype.
The Sussex local pleaded guilty to distributing category A (the most serious category of child sex abuse images) live-streamed videos, distributing a category B indecent live-streamed video, and two counts of causing or inciting a girl under 13 to engage in sexual activity.

She was sentenced at Isleworth Crown Court on Friday. In addition to her jail sentence, Callaghan was given a Sexual Harm Prevention Order and will appear on the sex offenders' register for life for her "horrendous crimes".
Her evil behaviour was discovered while the National Crime Agency was investigating Petley, an automotive engineer from Leamington Spa, Warwickshire.
He'd been arrested last year after being identified as a customer of Jodie Little, who filmed herself sexually abusing children in her home in Cyprus and sold the videos online under the usernames "Devil Bitch 666" and "DomTabooSlut".
Petley had paid her £750 between January 2017 and February 2018 so he could watch her abuse two victims. Little sent him 10 electronic files of abuse, including one in which she sexually abused a "very young" girl and talked about her being raped in graphic detail.
Little was jailed for 12 years and four months in August after being convicted of eight sexual abuse offences.
Petley was arrested again in May after police found an encrypted hard drive at his home with evidence linking him to other offending, this time with Callaghan.
Two years' worth of screenshots of their conversations showed Callaghan abusing a young girl on Skype while Petley watched. Callaghan would discuss what Petley wanted her to do to the child and he would give her instructions.

The hard drive also contained a video of Callaghan abusing the same girl. She performed "penetrative sexual activity" in front of the victim on at least 10 different occasions between 2016 and 2018.
Petley admitted 11 charges and was jailed in November for eight years.
NCA operations manager Matt Hall gave a statement after the trial.
"These were horrendous crimes that Callaghan carried out for money," he said.
"Her and Petley's prosecutions were possible because of our determination to ensure Jodie Little faced justice. Little might have been abroad but distance is not a barrier for the NCA in pursuing UK child sex offenders wherever they are.
"These crimes are an example of what the NCA is seeing more and more, with increasingly worsening cyber-enabled child sexual offending. The NCA knows that the scale and severity of offending against children are worsening.
"We and UK police arrest around 500 child sex offenders a month and safeguard about 700 children a month.
"There is no greater priority for us than protecting children."
