More than 1,000 Danish youths charged in
child 'revenge porn' case

UPI -- More than 1,000 Danish children were charged for child pornography after they allegedly shared a "revenge porn" video of two 15-year-olds having sex., according to reports Monday.

The sex in the video was initially consensual. But a girl in the video was penetrated with foreign objects, which she said she did not consent to. She also said she did not consent to being recorded, The New York Times reported.

After the video was taken, it was spread via the Facebook messenger app, where some of the children shared it hundreds of times. The video was eventually flagged by Facebook and then sent to Danish authorities.

Eventually!!!?? After hundreds of sharings? Nice work, FB, so glad to see you are right on top of things.

The decision to charge more than 1,000 youths comes at a time when Denmark has been cracking down on kids engaging in "revenge porn" - the act of sharing intimate sexual material without the other person's consent for vengeful purposes.

"It is our opinion that young people understand the major consequences for the victims when they share this kind of material," Flemming Kjaerside, a police superintendent for Denmark's National Crime Center, told Deutsche Welle. "But they may not also understand that it is punishable and that they may be sentenced for distributing child pornography."

Although prison time is unlikely for the youths involved in this case, convictions could stay on their record for 10 years and perpetrators will be prohibited from working in a job involving children.

"This will ruin my life," 19-year-old Mira Bech told Danish television station, TV2. "It's the world's most ridiculous case. I couldn't tell that the people in the video were under 18."

But Emma Holten, who has campaigned against cyber-bullying, told The New York Times, they should have been aware of the consequences, both for themselves and the people in the video.

"Four years ago, I would have felt sorry for them," she said. "Back then you could have argued that they were not aware of that it was illegal, but today they know."

Former Perth Catholic school teacher on
historic child sex abuse charges
Staff writers | PerthNow

A FORMER teacher at two Perth Catholic colleges is facing historic child sex abuse charges dating back as far as 1979.

The 71-year-old man has been charged with four counts of aggravated indecent assault, three counts of indecent dealing of a child and one of indecently assaulting a man.

The allegations stem from the Royal Commission into institutional responses to child sexual offences.

The first offences allegedly occurred in 1979 when the man was a teacher at a Catholic school in Bedford. Police allege the man indecently assaulted a boy three times, twice when he was 13 years old and once when the boy had turned 14.

It is also alleged that between 1986 and 1987, the man sexually assaulted a boy who was 13 years old at the time of the first offence. The alleged assaults occurred when the man was a teacher at a Catholic College in Tuart Hill.

He will appear before the Perth Magistrates Court on Wednesday.

The investigation is ongoing and detectives urge anyone with information to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or online at www.crimestopperswa.com.au.

However, they don't bother to give the name of the pervert! Good grief!

A Russian priest, father of four, has been found guilty of sexually abusing underage girls at Orthodox summer camps in Russia and Greece. He was sentenced to 14 years in a maximum security prison.

A court in the Leningrad region found Gleb Grozovsky, 38, guilty of molesting three underage girls. It has been reported that the court included the time he has already served since his arrest in 2014 in the sentence. In addition to his jail term, the priest will also have to pay each victim 400,000 rubles ($7,000) in moral damages.

An investigation found that Grozovsky had sexually abused a girl who was under 14 in 2011 at an Orthodox summer camp in Leningrad region. In 2013, he abused two girls in another Orthodox summer camp in Greece, the probe discovered.

Following the accusations, Grozovsky fled Russia in autumn 2013 and was charged in absentia. He was suspended from church service following the probe that year. Moscow also issued an international search warrant for him. The priest was finally detained in Israel, which extradited him to Russia in 2016. 

Grozovsky has denied any wrongdoing, claiming that the incidents had never occurred. “I understand the sentence and will file an appeal. This is not the end, you will see the situation change,” he said, responding to the court’s decision. He has 10 days to file an appeal.

The priest has already spoken of his plans in the event of his appeal being rejected. He revealed that he would write a book while in jail. “God helps those people to go through difficulties, whom he loves and chooses. Only those who were behind bars wrote normal books,” he said.

The Russian Orthodox Church refused to comment on the court verdict until the sentence comes into force. The diocese of Gatchina in Leningrad region where Grozovsky served will not defrock him at this stage, as he has yet to file an appeal.

German  police arrest man of suspicion
of child sex tourism
The Associated Press

BERLIN — German police have arrested a 52-year-old man on suspicion that he planned to travel to the Philippines to sexually abuse children.

Prosecutors say the German man had used an online messaging service to communicate with Filipino citizens and offer to pay them to procure the children, aged nine to 12. The man is also suspected of obtaining more than 1,900 images of child sex abuse.

Frankfurt prosecutors said in a statement Wednesday that the man’s arrest Tuesday followed a tip from the FBI.

The man, whose name wasn’t released, had previously lived in the Philippines for several years.

Brave child sex abuse victim fell from cliff to her death after heavy drinking session

One Non-Survivor's Story

Questions remain over whether a woman who bravely brought her stepfather to justice for abusing her as a child had intended to take her own life when she fell from a cliff in Cornwall.

The body of Leyna Ann Tucker was found in the sea at the base of cliffs between Porthleven and Loe Bar in May last year.

An inquest in Truro into her death heard that the 47-year-old, of Gibson Way, Porthleven, had gone missing after a night out with friends in Helston on May 12. Mrs Tucker’s car was found wedged on top of a Cornish hedge at the car park on Loe Bar Road the following morning.

Her mobile phone showed she had sent two text messages in which she said she was going to take her life by driving her car off the cliff.

However the inquest heard she was found to have been very drunk at the time as tests revealed she was nearly six times over the legal drink driving limit when she died. The coroner concluded that the amount of alcohol in her system would have had a serious effect on her judgement.

Leyna Tucker from Porthleven, pictured her when she spoke publicly about being abused as a child

In 2015, Mrs Tucker’s stepfather Andrew Fulcher was jailed for four years for molesting her when she was aged between 11 and 13. It was after the death of her mother that Mrs Tucker came forward and reported the abuse.

She waived her automatic legal anonymity to talk about the abuse and offer support to other victims.

In a statement, her husband John Tucker said the couple had married in 2006 and moved to back to his home in Cornwall from Bournemouth.

He said: “The abuse and subsequent court hearings took all her strength and it hit her really hard. Her life appeared to be on the up. I can’t understand what would have made her do such a thing (suicide) and I feel I’ll never come to terms with her death.”

Leyna and John Tucker from Porthleven

He said his wife struggled for years to cope with the abuse she received as a child and she admitted she was drinking too much alcohol. He added that she had cut back in recent years but was still prone to binge-drinking at times. She also took painkillers for back pain.

He said she had worked behind the bar at the Seven Stars pub and former Merchant’s Bar in Helston as well as the Queen’s Arms in Breage. Latterly, she had been employed as a carer in the Helston and Lizard areas and had been enjoying her latest job at the Porthgwara Nursing Home in Coverack.

Detective Constable Martin Hearn told the inquest that Mrs Tucker had been with friends on a night out in Helston on May 12. She stayed at her friend’s house and no-one had any idea that anything was wrong. But when her friend awoke at 5.20am on May 13, Mrs Tucker was missing.

DC Hearn said her Ford Focus car was found stuck on a Cornish hedge in front of the cliffs at Porthleven at 6.50am by a member of the public, prompting a search of the coastline by coastguards and an RNLI lifeboat.

The hearing was told her body was discovered by the lifeboat crew at 8am and that she had died as a result of multiple injuries from falling from the cliff.

DC Hearn added: “It looks like on her phone she made two messages, one to a friend and the other to her husband. In both she gave the indication she was going to attempt to drive off the cliff.”

I don't know if Leyna got any psychological counselling after reporting her father. If she did, it wasn't enough. Survivors need help and lots of it.

AB Apuron denies latest sex abuse allegation
from his own nephew
Mindy Aguon | The Guam Daily Post 

APURON: The image on the left is believed to be a photo of suspended Archbishop Anthony Apuron in Fairfield, California, taken in January last year by a private investigator working for some of the plaintiffs in the child sex abuse cases against Apuron. The photo on the right shows Apuron when he was still leading the Archdiocese of Agana. Post files

Suspended Guam Archbishop Anthony Apuron this morning issued a statement denying all allegations of sexual abuse, including the most recent made by his nephew, Mark Apuron. 

In an email statement sent Dr. Ricardo Eusebio to distribute to media, Apuron stated, "As I lay sick after another surgery and I face the final judgment approaching evermore close, having lost interest in this world, God is my witness: I deny all allegations of sexual abuse made against me, including this last one."

Apuron said the allegations of sexual abuse are helping him direct his hope toward the "only righteous judge" and expressed sadness by the timing of the latest accusation that he said "alleges an act which supposedly happened in incredible circumstances and surroundings."

The former head of the island's Catholic Church contends the allegations of sexual abuse against him have been "mentored and promoted by the same source," but the statement does not specify if that source is Attorney David Lujan, who represents the five clients who filed lawsuits against Apuron.

Roy Quintanilla, Roland Sondia, Walter Denton, the late Joseph "Sonny" Quinata, and Mark Apuron have alleged they were sexually abused by Anthony Apuron. 

The statement by Archbishop Apuron said the most recent case, filed by his nephew who alleges he was raped by his uncle who was already archbishop at the Chancery, "seems particularly timed to influence the verdict of the Vatican trial conducted by the Holy See, as a last resort out of fear that I may be exonerated."

Archbishop Apuron said the Catholic Church on Guam is being destroyed by people "who only have their power agenda at heart" and said he hopes God will have mercy and save the Church from the powers of darkness. 

He concluded, "I pray that the truth may prevail; I pray for my accusers: fill them with what they desire; as for me, when I awake, I will be satisfied with Your face, oh Lord."

Apuron was last seen in Fairfield, California last year, near San Francisco.

Police Chief, Bikini Man, FGM Dr., Miracle Village on Today's USA PnP List

Doctor facing first female genital mutilation case in US
has major sex charge dropped

A federal judge has dismissed the most serious charge of ‘criminal sexual activity’ against a Michigan doctor charged in the first female genital mutilation (FGM) case in the US.

US District Court Judge Bernard A. Friedman dropped the count – the most severe charge Dr Jumana Nagarwala was facing as it carried a sentence of up to life in prison – reducing the counts from seven to six.

The prosecution alleges that Nagarwala performed FGM on two 7-year-old girls from Minnesota last February 2017 in Livonia, Michigan. Eight people have been charged in relation to the case, one of which is Dr Fakhruddin Attar, who allegedly allowed Nagarwala to perform the procedure in his clinic.

Nagarwala’s defense attorneys argued the government was using the definition of ‘criminal sexual conduct’ under state law and ‘sexual act’ from another federal statute to characterize FGM as a ‘criminal sexual activity.’

That's how I have been characterizing it for years. It is criminal, it's sexual in that it is surgery on the genitals in order to prevent or discourage sexual activity, and it's certainly activity. It disturbingly affects a girl's sexual life, often in painful, unhealthy and unnatural ways.

Judge Friedman agreed with the defense that the alleged conduct does not qualify as sexual activity because the doctors did not touch the girls’ genitalia for sexual gratification or to abuse, humiliate or degrade the victims. 

And yet, abuse, humiliate and degrade is exactly what it does! Perverting God's design of a woman is certainly abuse. The need for FGM is humiliating and degrading in that it tells the girl she is not capable of keeping herself pure - she must be fixed! 

“We’re thrilled for our clients that the law was followed,” Attar’s lawyer Mary Chartier told Detroit News on Sunday. “This is going to be a long fight, but we’re confident they’ll be vindicated.”

The other defendants include four mothers accused of subjecting their daughters to the procedure, and Dr Attar’s wife, who is accused of holding the girls’ hands during the procedures and lying to investigators.

The group is accused of conspiracy to carry out FGM on the girls as part of a religious procedure practiced by an Indian Muslim sect, the Dawoodi Bohra. Prosecutors in the case say the girls were cut, while the defense argues the procedure performed on them was benign and not FGM.

Then what was the point of it?

One girl told the FBI that Nagarwala “pinched the place [where] she goes pee,” according to a court filing. Medical examinations meanwhile found the girls’ genitals did appear to have been altered, with some scar tissue and healing lacerations.

Nagarwala is suspected of using Attar’s clinic to carry out the procedure for more than a decade. The government estimates the doctor performed as many as 100 FGM procedures throughout her career and allege that she tried to cover up her crimes by telling her religious community to “deny everything.”

Both Nagarwala and Attar face up to 20 years in prison if convicted of the other remaining charges.

Maryland's 'bikini man' sentenced to 25 years
on sex abuse charges
Delmarva Now Staff 

A Crisfield, MD man was convicted Tuesday of two counts of sex abuse of a minor, resulting in 25 years of active incarceration in prison, according to a release from the Office of the State's Attorney for Somerset County.

Marco Garcia, 40, committed one crime in May 2010, while the other crime occurred from May 2006 to May 2010, the release said. 

Police revealed in August 2016 allegations dating back to 2005 that Garcia sexually abused two children between the ages of 6 and 9.   

In July 2016, Garcia was questioned by police after a Crisfield resident reported that he looked like the man caught in a surveillance photo wearing a women’s bikini or lingerie with two-tone hiking boots, according to court records.

The homeowner set up motion-activated cameras, normally used for tracking deer, after swimsuits and beach towels disappeared from an outdoor clothes line in the yard over a two-year period, according to charging documents.

Word of the "bikini man" spread after a surveillance photo was posted on social media.

The suspect first identified himself to police as Paco Garcia, then Marco Garcia and finally Marco Garcia Hernandez. He told police he had been in the country illegally for the past 10 years, according to court records.

Garcia told police he sleep walks, but had never sought medical attention for the problem. He gave police permission to search his Crisfield home, where officers found women’s underwear, bikinis and pornographic movies, but also a lot of young girls’ clothing and underwear.

At the time of Garcia's arrest, police say they found a picture of an infant being sexually abused on his cellphone, as well as a picture of a clothed child in a sexually provocative position. It was later discovered that Garcia's relative worked as a babysitter for the children, according to charging papers.

While police were unable to identify the infant, district court filings state the provocatively posed child had been watched over by Garcia's relative.

During a forensic interview — a special interview used by police for children to prevent false reports of abuse, sexual or otherwise — the victim confirmed Garcia had sexually abused her years before, lower court filings show.

The young victim told state police that Garcia had forced her to watch pornography in his bedroom, filings show. On one occasion, Garcia sexually assaulted her, according to state police.

After placing a notice for additional information in the local media, state police say the now-teenage victim came forward. She didn't realize what Garcia had done was wrong until she learned about sex in fifth grade, district court filings show.

Aston man gets 90 years for ‘unspeakable’
sexual abuse of girl, 7
By the Times Staff

PHILADELPHIA >> An Aston man was sentenced Tuesday to serve 90 years in federal prison for his manufacture of sexually explicit images of a 7-year-old girl and the transportation, receipt and possession of child pornography.

Matthew Maffei, also known as “Uncle Matt,” of the first block of Dogwood Lane, was also sentenced by U.S. District Court Judge Mitchell S. Goldberg to lifetime supervised released, a $20,000 assessment pursuant to the Justice for Victims of Trafficking Act, $5,000 restitution and a $400 special assessment.

Maffei, a first-time offender, previously pleaded guilty to all charges in the federal indictment.

The government sought the statutory maximum sentence of 90 years based on the horrific details of the case.

“Maffei sexually abused the 7-year-old child in the victim’s own home. He also forced the victim’s 5-year-old brother to witness his abuse of the 7-year-old on one occasion, and threatened to kill both children if they told their parents what Maffei had done,” according to a release issued by the U.S. Attorney’s Office. “As part of the sexual assaults on this child, the defendant defecated on her face.”

Calling the sexual assaults, “unspeakable,” the judge imposed the 90-year prison sentence, asking the parents to assure the victim and her brother that “this defendant will never in his lifetime be released from custody,” according to the release.

The case was investigated by the FBI in conjunction with the Delaware County District Attorney’s Office and Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force, as well as the Middletown Township Police Department in Delaware, and prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Michelle Rotella.

Trial for former LaMoure police chief accused of sexual abuse of a child set to begin on Jan. 31
By Sydney Mook To

Florida man pleads guilty in federal court to receiving
child sexual abuse videos

A 31-year-old Satsuma man pleaded guilty Tuesday to receiving child sexual abuse videos over the internet after hundreds of videos depicting underage sex were found on his home computer, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

Putnam County resident Ryan Elton Devore faces five to 20 years in federal prison when his sentencing hearing is held, a date not set for that yet, prosecutors said.

Federal agents and local law enforcement officers descended on Devore’s home on July 18, 2017, when a search warrant was executed in connection with an online child exploitation investigation, the U.S. Attorney’s Office said. When the agents asked Devore if he had come across pornography involving children under 12, he said “I was gonna say, I know, I, I probably have before, yeah,” according to court documents.

Forensic examination of Devore’s custom-built computer and a cellphone revealed numerous files containing depictions of child pornography, including at least 400 videos of children being sexually abused, court documents said.

Homeland Security investigated the case with the Gainesville Police Department and Putnam County Sheriff’s Office.

Miracle Village, FLA where 100 child sex offenders live in isolation cut off from normal society

At first glance Miracle Village looks like a rural holiday camp far away from the hustle and bustle of the city. But inside each of these homes surrounding by plush green fields each resident is forced to live away from normal society.

The community outside of Pahokee, Florida, serves as a home for 100 registered sex offenders.

Most have been convicted of sexual offences against children. And in Florida they are punished for their offences forever.

It is home to 100 sex offenders who are not allowed to live near children (Image: BBC)

After offenders have served their time in prison they face restrictions for life. This includes police chiefs having the power to notify the public about where they live.

Sheriff Gordon Smith explains one example: "You can't live within 2,500ft of any children congregate, churches, bus stops and those sorts of thing".

In Bradford County where he works another extreme measure to alert people includes 5ft red painted signs warning of "convicted Sexual Predator" outside criminals homes featuring the names of the perpetrators.

The laws result in many sex offenders living in entire communities.

The issues has been highlighted in a new BBC documentary presented by Stacey Dooley which looks at the approach of the people of Florida to sex offenders.

One resident of Miracle Village is Chris Dawson, who has lived for four years in the community, after being convicted of sex with a child - his 14 year old girlfriend - when he was 18.

They had been together for three months.

He said: "She lied to me about her age and had fake ID. "I had no idea.

"All her friends believed her so I believed she was 18 too. "I used to play drums in a band and go on tour and have great friends."

He now has a girlfriend who he met at church but who already knew he was a sex offender.

His girlfriend Lexi, 25, said: "At first it made me think twice, but the more I got to know him the more I saw his character and past the label.

"Things like marriage, living and kids are affected by the label of sex offender. I won't be able to host sleep overs or birthday parties or how am I going to tell my kids your dad is a sex offender."

The community is so popular with sex offenders there is not enough room for them all so they have settled in a nearby town Pahokee with the help of a religious ministry.

One of those is Lewis who is 33 years old was convicted age 18 of attempting to have sex with a nine year old. He said: "I deserve a second chance."

No you don't. Chris does, but not you. 

Pat Powers founded Miracle Village after serving 12 years in prison as sex offender after getting involved with students he was giving sports coaching to.

He said: "You can look at my past and say was he one of the top racquet ball coaches in the world or a sex offender. I know what I did."

Senator Book was abused as a child
(Image: BBC)

Unsurprisingly he believes unlike most of his countrymen that sex attackers deserve a second chance.

On the other side is Florida senator Lauren Book who runs a charity to prevent sexual abuse with her father Ron, a lawyer.

In America dozens of laws have been created and names following high profile sexual crime and the Books alone have campaigned for 20 pieces of sex offender legislation.

Lauren was abused between ages of 10 and 16 every single day by her live-in nanny. She said: "There wasn't a day which went by which I did not suffer, sexual, physical or emotional assault.

"I was urinated and defecated on and I thought that person loved me. At 32 it's difficult to understand but I was 10 years old. I still suffer night terrors and wake up beating my husband.

"I have to be sedated to go to the dentist because I can't handle laying down with people putting things in my mouth. I get angry when I hear 'we have served our time'.

Ron and Lauren don't believe in second chances (Image: BBC)

"We take away their civil liberties and that is not something which should be taken lightly but if you commit a crime against a child because it is something that turns you on then you should not get a second chance."

"Because I Lauren Book am not willing you to allow a second chance because if you have a backslide who are you hurting, not yourself."

Her father Ron said: "I do not believe these people can be rehabilitated. I don't lie awake at night thinking how can I stick it to these bastards and dirt bags, these scum buckets, but when we think about we are going after them.

"If you commit crime against a kid we will treat you differently. You stole my daughter's childhood, go to hell you son of a bitch, and that is why we require you to be registered."

One effect of the legislation means that people have to declare their crimes to potential employers making it hard to get jobs.

Brandon, who was abused himself as a child, was jailed for downloading and viewing child pornography. He has had hundreds of job applications refused and because of the law he is banned from spending time with his two year old niece who was born while he was in prison.

He said: "When I was younger, when I was a teenager, I physically molested a child."

Stacey Dooley is a star documentary presenter 

"I touched that child with my hands, there was no penetration but in essence I taught that child to masturbate. The child was three or four years old.

"There wasn't luring or predatory intent, it was opportunity. I have got to a point where I am not a danger to people."

"There are decent people who do horrible things all the time but in those moments they are not decent but there is a the power of redemption, God can redeem the worse."

Sheriff Smith sums up the popular revulsion to sex offenders who have committed crimes against children. "If you don't do something about it you are telling the world that you don't love your kids."

With a strong southern states accent he also has a view on the chances of rehabilitating them. Adding: "If chocolate ice cream is your favourite I can feed you strawberry for the next ten years but you know what you are still going to crave, that chocolate ice cream."

In neighbouring Miami the laws have forced sex offenders to live in tents in a homeless camp.

One man Brett was jailed after trying to meet a 15 year old boy for sex but the boy turned out to be a undercover police officer, he has been homeless for three years since leaving jail.

Some people do have homes in the city but because of the law cannot stay there between 10pm and 6am. But then bizarrely they can then return home to their families and kids.

Another man in the camp is on lifetime probation meaning he does not get off probation until 24 hours after he dies. He was caught with child pornography and sending it across the state border.

He said: "I did it but I don't deserve this."

The assumption is once a sex offender always a offender and they are put on a register for life with restrictions forever.

As horrible as it seems, and some of these cases seem to border on an abuse of power, the laws probably do save some kids from being sexually abused. I'm willing to see a pedophiles 'rights' be trampled upon to save kids. 

Although it might be a little more humane to make a difference between pedophiles and teens who are just a few years older than their girlfriend.

Sumo's chief referee to resign over sexual harassment of teenage official

Not exactly a #MeToo story, but shows child sex abuse is everywhere

© Toru Hanai / Reuters

Top-ranked sumo referee Shikimori Inosuke has been suspended by the Japan Sumo Association (JSA) and is expected to resign for sexually harassing a junior referee during a regional tour in December.

The incident occurred in Okinawa, Japan when Inosuke, who was reportedly drunk, repeatedly kissed the teenage referee and touched his chest. The victim has declined to file charges.

The JSA suspended the referee for three tournaments is expected to accept a formal resignation from him in May, after his ban has been lifted. Inosuke, who has previously been involved in drunken incidents, apologized to the association for his behavior, but insisted he couldn’t remember the harassment.

“At this time, following in succession after the assault issue, we had this incident of Inosuke’s inappropriate acts. I’m sorry for this,” JSA Chairman Hakkaku said at a news conference on Saturday, The Japan Times reported. 

“My hope is that the wrestlers summon every ounce of strength they possess and put on a fine display of sumo. We need to put on a good show for the fans,” he added.

Drunken brawls, Royalty bows out

In the wake of the recent scandal, Emperor Akihito and Empress Michiko have opted not to attend the current New Year Grand Sumo Tournament for the first time in four years.

The latest news comes just two months after the resignation of sumo grand champion Harumafuji, who brutally assaulted a younger wrestler, thereby tarnishing the highly ceremonial sport of sumo.

The 33-year-old Mongolian ‘yokozuna,’ the highest rank in sumo, hit Mongolian wrestler Takanoiwa during a drinking session at a bar in October, during a regional tour in Tottori, Japan.

Harumafuji was reportedly infuriated at Takanoiwa for fiddling with his mobile phone while senior wrestlers were talking. Harumafuji told him to pay greater respect to another yokozuna, Hakuho, who was speaking at the time, but the younger wrestler said he had received an e-mail from his girlfriend.

A verbal altercation between the two wrestlers escalated into a physical brawl in which Takanoiwa was immediately hospitalized after suffering concussion and a fractured skull. One month after the incident, Harumafuji announced his retirement, while admitting responsibility for injuring Takanoiwa.

In December, the former grand champion faced a summary indictment over assault charges, a court procedure which seeks payment of fines rather than a trial. The prosecutors decided in favor of a softer punishment, taking into account the fact that the wrestler had stepped down over the incident.

Child forced to carry out sex act on mum and pose for 'naked selfie' with her


File photo

A 10-year-old boy was forced to carry out a sex act on his mum and pose for a "naked selfie" with her, a court has heard.

The child was subjected to horrific sexual assaults and abuse from his mum and her partner, which was branded "despicable" by a judge.

Swansea Crown Court heard sex acts performed on the victim were filmed while a man repeatedly asked him if he was watching him have sex with his mum as the boy lay on a blow-up mattress under their bed.

The court also heard the youngster was forced to use a sex toy on his parent and pose for a “naked selfie” with her.

The couple, who come from the Swansea Bay, but cannot be named to protect the identity of the child, previously pleaded guilty to a string of sex offences, Wales Online reports.

The mum had pleaded guilty to sexual assaults, to taking an indecent photograph of a child, inciting a child to commit a sexual act, and causing a child to watch a sexual act.

While her partner admitted sexual assaults, and to inciting a child to perform a sexual act.

Both also pleaded guilty to a joint charge of engaging in sexual activity in the presence of a child.

Swansea Crown Court

Dean Pulling, prosecuting, said the abuse came to light “somewhat fortuitously” when a former partner of the man went to police to report concerns about his attitude to sex.

She said the man had wanted her to dress as a young girl and call him “daddy” when they had sex, and had an interest in incestuous online material.

The woman also found explicit videos on her computer which had been uploaded from his phone and which showed him talking about wanting sex with a child which the barrister characterised as “at best obscene, and in some cases described as disturbing and perverted”.

It emerged the man had been having an affair behind his former partner’s back with the mum of the boy he was abusing.

The court heard the woman downloaded the files she found onto a memory stick and handed it to the police.

Later that same day officers went to the house where the man was living with his new partner and co-defendant, and her son.

Mr Pulling said the young victim, who was 10 at the time, was initially reluctant to talk about what had happened to him in the proceeding weeks.

The boy is now frightened to be left alone, his dad said, but in the days that followed gradually began to open-up.

He said his mother had taken a “naked selfie” of them one morning before he went to school calling it their “little secret”, and he had been encouraged to use a sex toy on her. He also said she had performed a sex act on him while videoing it on a mobile phone.

The boy said that one night he had gone into his mother’s room because he was having a nightmare. While he lay on a blow-up mattress under the bed, the couple had sex above him. During the sex his mum’s partner repeatedly asked if he was watching them, and if he wanted a brother or sister.

The court heard the boy didn’t say anything about what was going on because he didn’t want to upset his mum, who he said loved her new partner.

The court heard a statement from the boy’s biological father in which he said the experiences had had a “catastrophic effect” on his son.

The dad said his son was now quiet and withdrawn, and was frightened of being left alone in case his abusers “came for him again”.

The statement concluded: “When he asks why they did it, I have no answer.”

Robin Rouch, for the boy’s mum, said she came from a good family, and there was no suggestion anything like the current offending had happened before she began a relationship with the co-defendant. He said she had made full admissions to police in order to spare her son from having to give evidence.

Ian Wright, for the woman’s partner, said his client had been an industrious man in the construction sector, and though he had previous convictions there was nothing of a like nature on his record. The barrister said that in entering guilty pleas, the defendant had accepted his wrong-doing and his need for help to address the issues he had.

Judge Peter Heywood said he wanted time to consider sentencing in the case, and whether the defendants should be considered “dangerous offenders”. He said: “They have both behaved in despicable manner, and will have to accept the consequences.

Matters were adjourned until January 18, and the defendants were again remanded into custody. They were both warned they face lengthy prison sentences.

Case Against French Troops Accused of Child Sex Abuse in CAR Dismissed


The French investigating magistrates have closed a case brought against a group of French soldiers accused of raping children in the Central African Republic (CAR) while on a peacekeeping mission, local media reported on Monday.

Last year, the Paris prosecution office called for the case to be dismissed over lack of convincing evidence. On Monday, the investigation stated that it could not confirm the fact of the sexual abuses, the BFMTV channel reported.

In March 2016, the AIDS-Free World organization reported more than a hundred new cases of sexual abuse, allegedly committed by foreign soldiers in CAR from 2013 to 2015. The majority of victims were said to be minors.

French troops were deployed in CAR as part of the Sangaris operation following the outbreak of the civil war in 2013. France withdrew the main bulk of the forces in October 2016, leaving only a rump force in support of the UN peacekeeping mission.

This is a disgusting result, but all too predictable. UN Peace Keeping forces are notorious around the world for sexually abusing children and almost never face the consequences in this lifetime. France,  and the UN, should be ashamed and embarrassed for this result which is in itself abuse of people who have been abused by people who are supposed to stop the abuse by others. 

Married dad used teen as ‘sex object’ - Western Australia
Shannon Hampton | PerthNow

TAKING in a mother and her teenage daughter who had nowhere else to go seemed like a selfless act of generosity.

But the real intentions of the 35-year-old WA man, who had a secret infatuation with the girl — aged just 14 and 15 — were far more sinister.

When they moved in, he groomed the victim — his daughter’s best friend — offering her gifts, drugs and affection until she believed it was appropriate to have a sexual relationship with him.

The married father, who cannot be named, was on Friday jailed for seven years over the repeated abuse. District Court Judge Ronald Birmingham described it as a damaging breach of trust.

His crimes spanned eight months between August 2014 and December 2015, with the abuse escalating from indecent touching and exchanging explicit images over social media to penetrative sex.

Judge Birmingham said the man, who was convicted of several child sex offences after a trial in September, viewed his victim as a “sex object” and exposed her to “numerous sexual ideas and concepts”. That included sending her photographs of sex toys and inviting her to have a threesome with a transsexual person.

He said the girl had instigated some of the sexual interactions, but found she had been manipulated by a man she saw as a father figure whom she believed she loved. “You abused her relationship and growing affection for you with conduct that was clearly wholly inappropriate in any circumstance,” he said.

Judge Birmingham said the girl now had panic attacks and waves of depression, with her mother feeling as though she had failed as a parent.

“You made them feel part of your family and it was just part of manipulating (the victim),” he said. “You persuaded her that you loved her. You gave her alcohol, cannabis and treated her as an adult.

“All of those things assisted in her confidence in her own maturity, to the point where she believed that there was an appropriateness to having a sexual relationship ... with you, being many years her senior.”

In a victim impact statement, the girl said her trust in adults had been tarnished.

“He stole my innocence and saw I was a vulnerable target,” she said. “I was a naive girl who, even though I consented to the sexual abuse, I was not old enough to do so and he knew that.”

The man will serve five years before he is eligible for parole.

Trial begins for former Young Canadians worker accused of sexually abusing children

By: Bill Graveland The Canadian Press 

CALGARY — The trial of a former longtime employee of a performance group that entertains each year at the Calgary Stampede has heard that the accused would ask students to send him naked photos and was hoping for more "naked time" with them.

Philip Heerema, 55, pleaded not guilty to 20 charges Monday at the beginning of a trial on counts that include sexual assault, luring and child pornography.

Police began investigating in January 2014 after they received a complaint from a student and his parents of an inappropriate relationship with a "person of authority" in The Young Canadians troupe.

"The charges in this case are serious," said Crown prosecutor Martha O'Connor in her opening remarks. "The Crown alleges that the accused, Philip Heerema, used his position as the business administrator of The Young Canadians School of Performing Arts ... to commit sexual offences against the young people who were all at one time students at the performing arts school."

After the initial complaint was made, another seven males came forward, who were all between 15 and 18 years old at the time of the alleged offences, O'Connor said. Some 17 months later, in June 2015, police laid charges against Heerema.

Calgary police Det. Paul Ralstin conducted a lengthy interview with Heerema in which the officer questioned a number of social media exchanges between the accused and some of his alleged victims. In one, which Ralstin read, Heerema complimented the recipient on "working on your body" and "just looking great." Another one referred to photos as "our special secret."

"I consider you a friend, even perhaps a little brother," it read. "And now you have someone to share your art, playful, creativity photos with. On tour you can just come visit my room and pose in person."

"We're seeing classic pedophile behaviour. It's grooming. It's complimentary. It builds on their ego but then also keeps you in control," said Ralstin. "And you knew it was wrong. There were little messages: Don't share this. Just delete these messages."

Ralstin said the messages were from what he called "Friendship Phil" and then "Creepy Phil."

"I'll be happy to push you in your limits. I'll also pretend I'm going to bed with you and you can be completely open with me. You can sing into my eyes next. Come sleep over and soak in the hot tub. I need to take care of you," read another message.

"Ah. Next naked time. Naked time, reflex, breathing — all soon. Wish we could have done something more."

At one point in the interview, Heerema, who indicated he was told not to say anything without talking to his lawyer, said: "It's painful." He said he would have been considered to be a person in authority at The Young Canadians and added he had "never threatened any of them."

The alleged assaults occurred between 1992 and 2013. Police seized a number of computers, an iPhone and other electronic devices from Heerema's office at the Calgary Stampede and from his home.

O'Connor said Heerema resigned from the Calgary Stampede when the charges came to light in February 2014.

The Young Canadians school works with 120 students between 11 and 18 from the Calgary area. It offers them a chance to train in dance, voice and performance in a professional environment throughout the year.

Training culminates in a performance for an international audience of more than 150,000 at the Calgary Stampede's grandstand show every July.

Heerema had been listed on the school's website as business administrator and production services co-ordinator when he resigned. A cached profile from the troupe's website says he worked in many areas, including costuming, props, sets and lighting.

Victims watch as sex abuse ‘monster’ from Portsmouth is jailed for 23 years

Two brave victims who watched in court as a ‘disgraceful’ sexual predator was jailed for 23 years have said: ‘He’s a monster.’ 

Predatory Frederick Tubbs was expressionless as a judge jailed him over a video-link for 18 charges of sex abuse against a young girl and boy. 

Portsmouth Crown Court heard how Tubbs, 40, plied his male victim with drink and drugs before carrying out the abuse, while ‘grooming’ the other victim. 

When he abused the girl from the age of seven he warned her he would go on to rape her. ‘It was grooming, it was highly abusive, and it was completely disgraceful,’ judge David Melville QC said. 

Speaking to The News after Tubbs, formerly of North End, was jailed, one victim said: ‘He’s a monster. ‘What he’s done is despicable and he’s ruined many people’s lives.’ 

Tubbs’ other victim said: ‘He’s not even a person.’ Both victims have been praised by police for their ‘remarkable bravery’. 

In one incident that illustrated the youth of the girl, prosecutor David Richards said Tubbs was interrupted while abusing the girl. ‘Tubbs was interrupted,’ he said. ‘He asked her what she wanted to do. She said she wanted to play a computer game called Dora.’ 

Tubbs, whose eventual release will be decided by the Parole Board, had also raped the girl by when he ‘grabbed her head’ – with her running off after the attack. He also forced her to watch pornography, the court heard. 

Police, who arrested Tubbs after his victim came forward, found scores of abuse images on his phone. Officers found he had five category A images – the worst rating – eight category B and 125 category C. When his computer was searched at a later date they found 14 category A films with 109 still images, two category B movies and 115 stills, two category C films and 216 still images, along with 190 prohibited images of children. 

Jailing Tubbs, the judge added: ‘This is a very serious matter. ‘There’s a considerable number of offences in this case and you are an offender of public concern.’ The judge stopped short of ruling Tubbs was categorised as ‘dangerous’. 

Tubbs was convicted at a trial of raping the girl, four charges of sexual assault against the girl, sexual activity with the boy, inciting the girl to engage in sexual activity and three charges of having indecent images of children. 

He admitted three sex assault charges, inciting a child to engage in sexual activity, three charges of having indecent images of children and a charge of having prohibited images of children. 

Mark Kessler, mitigating, said: ‘He sincerely regrets and apologises for what he had done and asks me to express that.’ 

In a statement after the hearing, investigating officer Det Con Jacqueline Doran said: ‘The victims in this case have had to endure a long and difficult process through the investigation and I am pleased that the custodial sentence given in this case will help them to start the process of moving on with their lives following his crimes. ‘Each showed remarkable bravery and courage and I hope this result gives any victim who has suffered abuse of this nature to come forward and talk to us. You can call us on 101, always dial 999 if a crime is in progress.’
