The chairman of a parents teacher association (PTA) was arrested on a charge of rape after being accused of raping a young boy, according to police in the United Kingdom.

Now, 43-year-old Duncan Hogben of Cranfield, has been sentenced to serve 18 years in prison after being convicted of rape of a child under 13 and taking an indecent picture of a child.

He was also convicted of taking, distributing and making indecent photographs of children.

Hogben pleaded guilty to nine other charges involving sexual assaults of two other young boys, and taking and sharing indecent images.

In addition to the custodial sentence, the judge also made a Sexual Harm Prevention Order for life and ordered that Hogben's name should be on the Sex Offenders' Register for life.

According to the criminal complaint, Bedfordshire Police received information from the National Crime Agency that Hogben was sharing indecent images over the Internet and using a Dropbox account.

Within half an hour, detectives from Bedfordshire Police's Child Exploitation Online Protection Unit were knocking on the front door of his home.

Hogben wasn't at home, but officers were told that he rented space in the kitchen of a pub, where he ran a catering business.

As a result, officers went to the pub, where he was arrested.

His iPhone was seized and on it, the police found disturbing videos and images of a very young boy being sexually assaulted.

The pictures had been taken by Hogben just days earlier.

Also seized by police was Hogben's Acer laptop.

It too was examined and revealed a still image of a young boy aged between eight and ten being raped by Hogben.

Altogether, he had 226 indecent images of children, some concealed in a hidden file.

As detectives looked into Hogben's activities, they discovered that he had been behind a series of sexualized chat logs, where he had posed as a 13-year-old boy to communicate with other pedophiles online.
