A pedophile who was serving 17-years behind bars for fond of abusing babies younger than six months old has been found dead in prison.
32-year-old Jared Perry was found dead on 3 November while in custody at Parc Prison in Bridgend, Wales. He was jailed in January after pleading guilty to a string of sexual and indecent assaults on children.
Deputy director of HMP Parc Ian Coles, confirmed his death and said it ‘will be investigated by the Prison and Probation Ombudsman.’
Swansea Crown Court heard Perry abused both boys and girls. Some of the children he targeted were less than six months old.
The court heard the abuse only came to the police’s attention when Perry walked into Aberystwyth police station and asked to speak to an officer before confessing what he had done.
It was also revealed that Perry began to watch pornography to which he later became ‘addicted’
From pornography, he then progressed to images of young children, the court heard. He also began to abuse drugs and was described as a ‘controlling and manipulative’ individual.
Perry, of Llanilar, Aberystwyth, admitted 10 counts of indecent assault and sexual assault on a child under 13.
Sending the defendant down the judge told him: ‘I believe without a doubt you present an extremely high risk of sexually assaulting children in the future.’
An investigation into Jared Perry’s death was declared on Wednesday, 6th November and it is next listed for May 15, 2020, for a pre-inquest review.
