Richard McAdam, of Rixton Grove, Thornton, was arrested in August 2017 after Lancashire Police received a complaint from a victim who alleged she had been raped by the 60-year-old in 2001, when she was 12.
Another victim was identified by police and reported that she had been indecently assaulted as a child by McAdam between 1995 and 2000.
Officers launched an investigation with McAdam denying the offences at court.
Following a trial in December he was convicted of 20 sexual offences, including four offences of sexual assault, four offences of rape, two offences of assaulting a child by penetration and ten offences of sexual activity with a child.
McAdam was sentenced at Preston Crown Court today (June 1) and jailed for 11 years.
Previously in 2014, the pervert was jailed for a total of four-and-a-half years after he contacted a woman in the Philippines to ask her about prostituting her young daughter
Richard McAdam had links with a criminal who had been making payments for sex shows in the far east involving children, some of which were streamed live via a webcam.
As a result of a worldwide investigation, police executed a search warrant at McAdam’s then home in Blackpool, and discovered he had accessed indecent images of children.
He had also been in contact with a man in the Bristol area, regarding the possible abuse of this girlfriend’s four-year-old daughter.
McAdam had pleaded guilty to one charge of arranging or facilitating child prostitution, another of attempting to arrange the commission of a child sex offence, plus eight other offences of making indecent photographs of a child.
