Victims of an incel window fitter who secretly masturbated in people’s homes before anonymously sending them videos of his depraved actions have said they feel “completely let down by the justice system” after he walked free from court this week for the second time in the space of a fortnight.

Jason Boyd (31) from Camagh Road, Keady, Co. Armagh once again avoided jail this week after he was given a two-year suspended sentence at Monaghan Circuit Court for sending the sick videos to a Monaghan mother and her 17-year-old daughter as well as possession of child porn.

Boyd, who worked installing windows and doors, had victims in the Republic and north of the border so was tried with similar offences in both jurisdictions.

Earlier this month he received another suspended sentence and was placed on the sex offenders register in Northern Ireland after he pleaded guilty to anonymously sending five female customers videos of him masturbating in their homes in the North.

The Sunday World can also reveal he carried out the sickening acts after being encouraged to do so by a sick online porn ring who traded images.

“They were sending him porn and said he had to contribute to the group and when he told them what he worked at they suggested he masturbate in people’s homes and send them the videos,” the father of the 17-year-old Monaghan victim said.

Boyd had videoed himself masturbating into the sink of the family’s home in October 2019 but waited until January 2020 to send the mother and daughter videos of his actions via a Facebook account he had set up in the false name of David Masterson.

The family said they only discovered afterwards David Masterson was the name of a notorious paedophile from Dublin and they wonder why Boyd used that name.

Boyd was arrested by gardai last year after the Monaghan family interacted with him by Facebook Messenger in the hope he would give away clues about his real identity and he unwittingly sent them a picture with his real name visible in his email.

The court he has had difficulty interacting with females after he tried to kiss a girl when he was 15 but it went wrong and he ended up licking her face.

His difficulties with women have continued through his adult life and since his arrest has been diagnosed as being on the autistic spectrum.

The family say he knew what he was doing and his sick acts involved planning and were premeditated.

Judge Eoin Garavan said what Boyd did was “extremely sinister and disturbing”.

“He used his employment to do what he did. He exploited his work.”

He said he was unsure if Boyd was remorseful and said he was at moderate to high risk of reoffending.

“In order to grain more gratification, he had to engage in more bizarre conduct and this was certainly bizarre.”

He said what “began as a shy life evolved into something sinister and sexually troublesome”.

“I think this man is a potential menace to society but if treatment makes him less likely to commit offences then I’m reluctant to put him behind bars.”

Judge Garavan handed Boyd a two-year suspended sentence after he was convicted of sending indecent messages and for possessing child pornography.

The mother who exposed Boyd’s identity told the Sunday World she was disappointed to see Boyd walk free after the trauma he caused their family as well as his multiple other victims.

“I feel completely let down by the justice system. I have no doubt if he wasn’t caught he would have gone further and further because what he was doing wouldn’t satisfy him anymore.

“He had me convinced that he lived in our village. He seemed to know so much about me. It was embarrassing now looking back who were thinking could have been responsible.

“I know the outcome is the outcome but I’m deflated by it. It’s been a long two years.”

She said Boyd never apologised to the family. “He never asked to approach or apologise to us. He could have apologised but didn’t.”

The woman noted that a Cork council worker was recently jailed for six months for letting rats into an office but Boyd was able to walk free for his crimes.

“If he left two rats in our house instead of doing what he did would he have been jailed?

The family said they also felt let down in the sentence hearing due to the focus on Boyd and what could be done to assist him rather than on the trauma inflicted on the family.

“It was all about how it affected him. We didn’t get to speak about the impact on us. So many times, I wanted to stand up and said can I talk?

“He got credit for a guilty plea but he was caught red-handed with the videos on his phone. He had even just done it in another house in Monaghan just before being arrested by gardai but hadn’t sent them the video.”

The woman explained how it was stomach churning for her to interact with Boyd after he sent the videos anonymously but she responded to him in the hope he would slip up and give away his real identity.

“When I was replying to him in the hope he’d give himself away he went into his parent’s bathroom and did it again while he was talking to me and sent that to me.”

Boyd did slip up by sending a screengrab of his screen where he had his email open in his real name.

“In the screengrab he also had our daughter’s Facebook open the whole time. He deleted it 30 minutes later knowing he had given away his identity but we had already saved it by then.”

Gardai then arrested Boyd as he was leaving another job on a home in Monaghan. They found the videos of him masturbating in homes on his phone and he admitted carrying out the acts.

The family say Boyd’s actions had a particularly bad effect on their daughter.

After Boyd sent the 17-year-old a video of him masturbating, he followed up with a message saying, “I wish you walked in on me to help finish me off.”

The girl’s father said: “To say that to a 17-year-old girl [beggars belief].”

The girl’s mother explained how traumatised the family were after receiving videos. “You think about things like did he use one of our towels afterwards. People use then to wipe their face and hands. As a mother it’s horrendous [to think about]. It’s a big thing.”

She said while she is disappointed with the sentence she is glad Boyd has been unmasked.

“When you see him, he’s a squirming little gobs***e. At least if he’s not behind bars, people know what he did.”

As well as masturbating into people’s sinks he sent one of his victims a video of him masturbating onto her photo ID card in her room.

The family say they hope authorities track down the online porn ring who encouraged Boyd to carry out his sick acts.

Boyd is believed to have numerous other victims but it is understood gardai had difficulty contacting them.

The family said has urged anyone who had Boyd carry out work in their home to check if he sent them a video.

“On Facebook Messenger if you’re not friends with someone and you message them it goes into a spam folder so people might not have seen it yet,” the father said.

Boyd refused to comment on his actions when the Sunday World tried to speak to him outside court.

While he lost his job at the window company he is now back working again as a welder.
