A sex attacker filmed a sleeping woman after moving her hand to touch him intimately.

When police combed James Chapman’s mobile phone and Ipad they discovered indecent images of children – and also searches for rohypnol, the date-rape drug.

Recorder Simon Mills said at Mold crown court there was no evidence that rohypnol or a stupefying drug had been involved and they couldn’t be sure.

However the victim had been “left wondering”.

The judge said : “It seems to me this young woman’s life has been fundamentally affected by what he did to her. It will affect her for the rest of her life.”

Elen Owen, prosecuting, pointed out : “The woman had no idea of what was happening.” She had earlier been drinking with Chapman, who had been pouring the drinks and had access to her glass. There were 168 images of a clothed woman with part of her body exposed and a moving clip showed her hand being used to perform a sex act on him.

Chapman, aged 30, of Meirion Gardens, Colwyn Bay pleaded guilty to engaging in non-penetrative sexual activity and to four charges involving hundreds of images and movies of internet porn.

Defence barrister Richard Edwards said Chapman was genuinely remorseful and was taking steps to cure an addiction to porn websites involving young children.

Chapman was sent to prison for two years and eight months. A restraining order bans him from contacting his victim, there is a sexual harm prevention order and he must sign the sex offender’s register for life.
