MERTHYR TYDFIL, Wales, April 18 (UPI) -- A British accountant who photographed himself raping a young girl was sentenced to five years in prison even though the victim was never identified.

A judge in Merthyr Tydfil Crown Court in South Wales imposed an indefinite sentence on David Bye, the Daily Mirror reported. Bye, 43, who lives in the London suburb of Harrow, admitted luring the girl into a trailer at a vacation resort and assaulting her.

"Despite your admissions you have not helped police in identifying the children you abused," Judge Eleri Rees said as she imposed sentence Friday.

Police began investigating Bye after child pornography was discovered on a laptop computer he used for work. More than 200 pornographic photos were found in his trailer, including two of the girl he admitted raping, who appeared to be about 8 years old.

Bye will also be listed as a registered sex offender for the rest of his life.
