A paedophile paramedic who was caught with more than 7,000 indecent images and videos of children, including the abuse of a 12-month-old baby, has been struck off.

Lee Lewitt, 37, also had ‘grossly offensive and disgusting’ pictures of a person engaging in sexual activity with an animal on his mobile phone, memory stick, iPad, laptop and an encrypted file sharing service account.

The paramedic, who had been working for the South Western Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust, told police he was ‘addicted’ to adult pornography and had ‘encountered the illegal images while accessing adult websites’.

Lewitt, who has now changed his name by deed poll to ‘Jago Lee’, was arrested by Devon and Cornwall Constabulary on June 1, 2020.

Officer subsequently seized a number of electronic devices and found he had accesses the images and videos between November 17, 2018, and May 29, 2020.

Police found 2,721 Category A images; 1,456 Category B images; 3,529 Category C images and ten extreme pornographic images.

Lewitt appeared at Truro Crown Court on March 5, 2021, where he pleaded guilty to three counts of making indecent photographs of children and a single count of possessing extreme pornographic images.

He was sentenced to an 18-month prison sentence, suspended for two years, ordered to carry out 100 hours of unpaid work, made subject to a Sexual Harm Prevention Order and added to the sex offenders’ register for ten years.

The extreme pornographic images were described in court as being ‘grossly offensive, disgusting or otherwise of an obscene character, and portrayed in an explicit and a realistic way a person performing an act of intercourse or oral sex with an animal’.

Passing sentence, His Honour Judge Carr told Lewitt: ‘You have pleaded guilty to the downloading of a significant number of child abuse and extreme pornographic images and that is for which you will be sentenced. 

‘I appreciate as an intelligent man you have, I hope by now, realised the enormity of what you did. I am going to remind you of that. 

‘Every day tens of thousands of children are raped and abused around the world for the entertainment of people like you. It is a business. 

‘The people who rape the children, aged 12, 18 months old or older, do not do so because they have any sexual interest in the child, they do it as a business and it is a business funded by you.

‘Many people would conclude, and I would be one of them, that you bear a considerable responsibility for the systemic abuse of those children.’

Following the conviction, Lewitt was referred to the Health and Care Professions Tribunal Service for a hearing on Monday.

In police interviews on June 1, 2020, and November 19, 2020, the paramedic had stated that he was ‘addicted to adult pornography and had encountered the illegal images while accessing adult pornography’.

The hearing was also told that Lewitt ‘denied that he hoarded the illegal images’ and and said he had undergone counselling.

But the panel concluded that only a striking off order would suffice in the case. 

They said: ‘The case involved a criminal conviction involving sexual conduct in that it concerned taking or making indecent images of children. 

‘The volume and nature of the illegal images were of a high degree of seriousness. The limited information of insight showed a lack of real understanding of the Registrant’s past actions or their actual impact on the victims, his profession and the wider public. 

‘The Panel concluded that only a Striking Off order would be sufficient to protect the public, public confidence in the profession and in the regulatory process and to declare and uphold proper standards of conduct in the Paramedic profession.’

He has now been struck off from the medical register.
