Officers from Lincolnshire were investigating Wilson, when they discovered a chat log between himself and Holloway.
This chat log described in graphic detail the sexual abuse and rape of a young girl and further sexual abuse of a young boy, and in passing sentence the judge stated that the text conversations between Wilson and Holloway in which they talk about sexual activity with one of the victims made for some of the most depraved and vile reading he had encountered.
Officers made efforts to trace Holloway, who was located in Grimsby and subsequently arrested by officers from Humberside. At the time of the offences, both offenders were living in Lincolnshire.
Wilson was arrested by officers in Lincolnshire and remanded in custody.
The pair both pleaded guilty at Grimsby Crown Court to offences of rape and sexual assault.
Detective Sergeant Julia Tee-Boon, of the Public Protection Unit at Lincs Police, said: “I would like to say how thankful I am to officers from both Lincolnshire and Humberside for their efforts in what has been without doubt the most horrendous and emotionally challenging case to work on.
"It is their sheer determination and professionalism that has resulted in these offenders both being brought to justice. Crimes such as these are abhorrent and vile, and our forces are fully determined to bringing offenders such as these to justice. My thoughts go out to the innocent victims, and we will work hard to make sure all the services are there for them to get all the help and support they need.”
