Liverpool Recorder Judge Andrew Menary QC said of their crimes they were “shockingly depraved” and “just when you think you’ve heard the worst, there’s another one”.
He said he was considering a life sentence for rapist Bevan.
Bevan s*xually assaulted a vulnerable victim, Paul Rafferty, 62, and also molested her with a second man, Tony Hutton, 42.
The horrific s*xual abuse was filmed and photographed, and images were shared between the group along with twisted messages.
The three pedophiles, all from St Helens, appeared in the dock at Liverpool Crown Court this morning as Bevan laughed and smiled with security officers before wiping away tears with a white handkerchief as the judge came into court.
Bevan was due to be sentenced at Liverpool Crown Court on Friday.
But Judge Menary stayed the sentencing, saying he was considering an “indefinite” or life sentence for Bevan and wanted written opinions on the matter from her attorneys before making a decision.
Bevan has also pleaded guilty to 17 counts of taking an indecent picture of a child, two of those counts consisting of 52 photos of penetrative s*x.
She admitted to two counts of possession of extreme pornography, which referred to 100 “grossly lewd, disgusting or otherwise obscene” animal pornography images.
Judge Menary added: “Of particular concern to the Court is the exchange of messages that are shockingly depraved fantasies.
“They have not remained fantasies. Some of these have been played in real life.
“Just when you think you’ve heard the worst, another one comes along.
“That’s all the court will deal with.”
Judge Menary said any claim by Bevan in her defense that she was “led” by the others will not be accepted.
The girl involved, as a victim of s*xual offenses, cannot be identified.
Rafferty has pleaded guilty to 10 s*x offenses, including rape, and Hutton has pleaded guilty to four s*x offenses.
All three have been remanded in custody to face sentencing on May 13 when the full facts will be revealed in court.
The judge said written submissions from Mr Duffy and Martine Snowdon indicting prosecutors should take into account Bevan’s “risk in the future and the extent to which underlying health or mental health issues could have a bearing on her guilt”.
Judge Menary asked attorneys for Rafferty and Hutton to provide information about their “risk and dangerousness.”
The judge, in interviews attended by the three defendants with the parole service for pre-sentencing reports, noted that there was “a certain level of blame” and asked if that would be used as a basis for sentencing.
Tom Watson, defending Hutton, told the court he “accepts full responsibility for his insult, notwithstanding what your Lordship may have seen in the report”.
He said: “He will not refrain from accepting full responsibility for each of the offenses to which he has pleaded guilty.”
Judge Menary told Mr Duffy: “I must say if your client suggests that she was encouraged and guided by others, that would not be accepted.”
Mr Duffy said this was not put forward by Bevan.
