CHILD PORN ADDICTION 9

After receiving the highest sentence in Saskatchewan history for child pornography offences, Shane Dale Pattison was fresh out of prison in 2015 when he began sharing and viewing thousands of child porn images.
Pattison, 27, pleaded guiltyin Saskatoon Court of Queen’s Bench to 40 counts of sharing child porn — the images included babies and young children being sexually abused, with some of the children bound while they were abused — as well as two counts of possessing child porn between November 2015 and March 2016.
Mr. Pattison’s collection is among the worst I’ve ever seen, which is pretty bad,” said Det. Sgt. Darren Parisien of the Saskatoon police Internet Child Exploitation unit.
When Pattison, who is from Marshall, Sask., was arrested on March 22, 2016, he was on statutory release, the legally-mandated supervised parole to which most offenders are entitled after serving two-thirds of a prison sentence. 
Pattison had previously been sentenced in August 2012 to five years in prison for collecting more than 4,500 images and videos of child porn depicting extreme sexual abuse of girls under the age of five. 
As soon as he was released from prison, he began viewing and sharing new child porn images, according to an agreed statement of facts read in court Friday.
Pattison was caught when investigators went into his room at a halfway house and found him with three devices open and streaming child porn. He was trading pictures back and forth with other users in chat groups.
Pattison was subject to six conditions while he was in the community on statutory release. They included participating in psychological counselling and not being around any children unless accompanied by an approved adult. He was also prohibited from using any computers or devices with Internet access.
Defence lawyer Brian Pfefferle said outside court that Pattison did not receive any sex offender treatment in the penitentiary. The sentencing judge originally called him a high risk to reoffend, but when Pattison was processed at the prison, he was deemed a medium risk and not a hands-on offender — thus receiving no treatment, Pfefferle said.
After his release, Pattison was set up to receive treatment in the community but hadn’t had even his first appointment before he relapsed, court heard.
Pattison told police that if he has a device and access to the Internet, he can’t control himself.
He cooperated with police and gave investigators his passwords to unlock the images. He told them he hopes the people he was sharing with are also captured, court heard.
His arrest has led to 1,357 other child porn investigations. Parisien said investigators already know they are dealing with thousands of users.
Pattison’s sentence was one of the longest ever imposed for child porn offences in Saskatchewan that did not involve production of child porn. Another five-year sentence was handed down in April 2013 to Darrel Donald Stupnikoff, who had a prior conviction for possessing child porn when he was caught with more than 80,000 images and videos.
In 2009, a Moose Jaw man, Donald William Black, was sentenced to eight years for sexual exploitation and making child porn involving children he was babysitting. His wife, Audrey Black, was sentenced to four years for participating in the crimes.
Pattison’s sentencing hearing continues July 19. The Crown is considering whether to seek long-term offender status for him.
Parisien said rehabilitation will require a long, concerted effort considering Pattison’s long history of interest is the sexual exploitation of children.
It is not uncommon for people who have been convicted of child porn crimes to later be convicted in hands-on sexual abuse of children, Parisien said.
It happens all the time … (though) not everybody does,” he said.

Repeat offender Shane Pattison pleads guilty to 42 child porn charges BETTY ANN ADAM, SASKATOON STARPHOENIXJune 9, 2017 

A registered sex offender convicted of molesting a child in 2001 was arrested last year with one of the largest caches of child pornography ever recovered in Virginia – as many as 1.7 million images and videos.
Investigators found so much they didn’t even review it all. Prosecutors concluded there was no need because John Martin Bowen was willing to plead guilty, and they had confirmed enough of the images involved children to show a judge he possessed vast quantities.
But a prosecutor said Bowen’s “humongous, staggering collection” wasn’t the most disturbing thing investigators found inside his Accomack county home. That, she said, was the “handcrafted doll” that agents discovered with his electronics.
His prurient interests extended to actual sex with a child-like doll,” Assistant U.S. Attorney Kathleen Dougherty wrote in court documents.
Bowen, 56, of Melfa, was sentenced in U.S. District Court to 15 years in prison. Upon his release, he will be placed on supervised probation for the rest of his life.
According to court documents, Bowen was convicted in 2001 in Accomack County Circuit Court on one count each of aggravated sexual battery and indecent liberties with a minor.
He was sentenced to one year in prison and subsequently released.
Bowen was charged with distributing the child pornography last year after an FBI agent downloaded, on two occasions, a total of 68 images.
Investigators searched his home Oct. 18, seizing five devices. One of the laptops contained over 700,000 images, and the other held more than 1 million.
Dougherty said the oldest file was created in December 2006.
She and Assistant Federal Public Defender Kirstin Kmet both asked U.S. District Judge Robert Doumar to sentence Bowen to 15 years – the minimum.
Kmet noted that her client was a Navy veteran who served honorably for 14 years and attained the rank of petty officer second class. She stressed his need for mental health treatment, though.
“John Bowen harbored secrets that not even those individuals closest to him knew,” Kmet said, noting his “unhealthy addiction” to pornography and inability to effectively cope with years of deep depression.
Kmet said he was emotionally neglected by his parents and physically abused by his father, who she said was fond of corporal punishment. She said he was married for 11 years and fathered two sons. But, she said, he is now estranged from most of his family and has lived an “extremely isolated life” the past several years. She said he had few friends and little support.
Kmet said he started looking at child pornography “as an escape from the realities of his tortured life.”
“I accept full responsibility for what I have done,” Bowen told the court, asking for help.
“I know deep down I am not this person. There is something wrong with me.”
Kmet noted that Bowen was “shockingly” not placed on supervised probation or ordered to complete sex offender therapy following his 2001 convictions.
“Without question, John could have benefited greatly from mental health treatment and sex offender therapy,” Kmet said. 

ELIZABETH -- A Roselle man caught with 350 videos and photographs of child pornography now faces a possible five-year prison sentence after pleading guilty to distributing the pictures and recordings online, state officials said.
Dimas Zuniga, 45, pleaded guilty before Superior Court Judge Lisa Miralles Walsh to a charge second-degree distribution of child pornography, state Attorney General Christopher Porrino said in a statement.
Zuniga was arrested March 22, 2016, when State Police raided his home and found hundreds of files of videos and images of children, along with file-sharing software to make multiple files that were available for others to download, Porrino said.
In pleading guilty, Zuniga admitted he knowingly used the file-sharing software to make multiple files that others could obtain, according to Deputy Attorney General John Nicodemo, who prosecuted the case for the state Division of Criminal Justice.
The prosecutor will recommend Zuniga receive a five-year prison term when he is sentenced July 14. Zuniga will also be required to register as a sex offender under Megan's Law and will be subject to parole supervision for life, authorities said.
Zuniga was one of 16 arrested in "Operation Safeguard," a child pornography sweep conducted by the Division of Criminal Justice, ICE Homeland Security Investigations and the New Jersey State Police.
"Child pornography is a product that is manufactured by torturing and sexually exploiting young children, and criminals like Zuniga who distribute this product online contribute directly to that exploitation," Porrino said.
During the investigation, agents of ICE Homeland Security Investigations, detectives of the Division of Criminal Justice, and detectives of the New Jersey State Police Digital Technology Investigations Unit monitored several online file-sharing networks that are popular with offenders who download and trade child pornography. 
The investigators searched for digital "fingerprints" of known child pornography, as well as search terms used by those who download and share child pornography, and identified New Jersey residents who were downloading the pornography and making it available to others, authorities said.
They said a State Police detective downloaded videos of child pornography from a shared folder at an IP address traced to Zuniga.
Porrine urged anyone with knowledge about the distribution of child pornography on the Internet, or suspects improper contact by unknown persons communicating with children over the Internet for possible exploitation or sexual abuse of children to call state Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force tip line at (888) 648-6007.

Man with 100s of videos admits distributing child porn, state says June 6, 2017 TOM HAYDON NJ Advance Media NJ.com

A paedophile caught with a vile collection of 12,587 images of child abuse was jailed for 15 months.
Daniel Gunson, 45, of Hollybank, Moore, was locked up at Chester Crown Court having previously pleaded not guilty to six offences of possessing and making indecent images, possessing prohibited images and having extreme pornography involving animals.
‘Deviant’ Gunson was caught after police seized digital devices including a laptop, an external hard drive and a Samsung phone.
Officers trawling the files uncovered a hoard of imagery of sexual abuse of children from babies to older teens.
Sarah Badrawy, prosecuting, said the pictures and videos covered the range of seriousness from the worst in Category A through to Category C.
Judge Patrick Thompson detailed the imagery further, stressing that the public ‘should know the sort of material people are viewing’.
He went onto describe examples of photographs and videos, including clips of infants in visible pain and distress undergoing sexual abuse in ordeals lasting nearly two hours.
Police confirmed more than 12,500 child abuse images from 30,000 images discovered, with a further 138,524 files that were not examined.
There were 2,951 items in Category A, 3,244 in Category B and 6,392 in Category C.
In addition, his search history was littered with terms and recurrent themes relating to still and moving images of offences against children.
Gunson was arrested in 2015 but claimed innocence via a prepared statement after a series of no comment interviews.
The matter was due to go to trial this September but the defendant change his plea in April.
The court heard that a previous partner of Gunson had broken up with him in 1996 after discovering him looking at indecent images, but he claimed he had no idea how they ended up on his computer.
Gunson, in a grey suit, purple shirt and thick black-rimmed glasses, stood blank-faced for the duration of the hearing.
Elderly family members covered their mouths as His Honour Patrick Thompson listed the offences and told Gunson the only place he could go was prison.
Simon Parry, defending, said his client had no previous convictions and had received an 
Judge Thompson imposed a 10-year sexual harm prevention order on Gunson and ordered that he be placed on the sex offenders’ register, also for 10 years.
Sentencing him, he said: “You entered a defence statement claiming you knew nothing of this material that it somehow appeared on your computer.
“You said you had obtained your computer from someone else and it was their responsibility.
“That wasn’t the case at all.
“You were the person who had downloaded it and you were the person with a deviant interest in material of this kind, material of children being raped, from babies to teenage children.
“You seem to have an interest in all of that.”
He added: “If it wasn’t for people like you with this deviant interest, these children would not be getting raped so I’m afraid you bear responsibility.”
Police found "disgusting" images of children that were "sick to the extreme" on a convicted sex offender's mobile phone
He had a "fascination" for pictures of young boys and this helped to fuel the trade in child abuse images, a court heard.
Andrew Webster, 29, of Chantry Lane, Grimsby, admitted making indecent photographs of children between June 17 and July 29 last year.
He also admitted distributing an indecent image of a child on July 28 and breaching a sexual harm prevention order.
Craig Lowe, prosecuting, told Grimsby Crown Court that Webster was given a nine-month suspended prison sentence in February 2015 for 18 offences of possessing indecent photographs of children.
Police were given information from a national crime agency and others that he was in contact with other like-minded people.
He bought a laptop but did not tell the authorities about it. There were images of concern on it but none that were the subject of charges.
The indecent images of boys, including 42 still pictures and four movies, were on his mobile phone.

'Fascination'

He had owned the laptop for three weeks but had not complied with notification requirements regarding it.
He had shown remorse and had been working recently.
"He recognises that he has got a problem and has worked to address that problem," said Mr Savage.
Judge Mark Bury told Webster: "You have an enduring sexual interest in children.
"You plainly have issues concerning your fascination for and attraction to boys who are very young."
The images were "sick to the extreme" and "disgusting" and each represented an instance of abuse.
"The only reason these images are made is that people like you get sexual gratification from looking at them," said Judge Bury.
Webster was jailed for 23 months and was given a 10-year sexual harm prevention order.
He must register as a sex offender for 10 years.

A child porn "addict" flouted a judge's order by seeking out more illegal images.
Keith Andrew Bell, 46, was originally sentenced at Carlisle Crown Court in 2014.
Bell admitted a dozen crimes having downloaded more than 1,000 indecent photographs of children - the youngest aged just one - during an eight-year period.
Almost 150 of the images were classed in category A - the most serious.
Bell was handed a suspended prison term by a judge who opted to impose a "constructive" sentence having heard mitigation. Bell was placed under probation service supervision for two years, and ordered to attend an intensive sexual offences behaviour programme.
In addition he was made subject to an indefinite sexual offences prevention order.
But despite attending the rehabilitation course, Bell returned to his criminal ways.
Between March 2015 and late last year, he downloaded 50 illegal images of "pre-pubescent" teenage girls. Seven were classed as category A.
Bell's latest round of criminal conduct was uncovered after police visited his then home near Carlisle and seized a mobile phone.
He was jailed for 10 months at the crown court today having admitted three counts of making an indecent photograph of a child and one possession offence.
Judge Peter Davies learned the original prevention order resulted in software being fitted to his computer equipment, allowing police to monitor his online activity.
However, Bell had bought an internet-enabled mobile phone "specifically" to carry out further offending.
A probation officer's report on Bell concluded the original court order "does not seem to have had a deterrent effect".
Bell said he "didn't see the benefit" from the behaviour programme.
"He admits to significantly lying about his problem [to the course administrator]," stated the report, and was still "struggling with a sexual addiction to children throughout the programme".
Mark Shepherd, defending, said Bell described his criminal activity as an "illness".
"This is what he feels it is. It has blighted him for many years," said Mr Shepherd.
Bell, of Upperby Road, Carlisle, was now keen to seek professional help.
But, sending him to custody, Judge Davies said: "You describe it as an addiction. It appears to me that it is a persistent and routine habit and there is precious little evidence of any motivation to rid yourself of that habit."

Carlisle man 'addicted' to child porn jailed 5 June 2017


A 23-year-old Astoria man who had hundreds of videos and photographs of young children being sexually abused by adults was sentenced to prison.
Charles Flores pleaded guilty on April 20 to possessing a sexual performance by a child. According to Queens District Attorney Richard A. Brown, Flores was sentenced to one to three years in prison on June 12.
Flores was caught after police received a cyber tip report from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) that he uploaded images of child pornography on his Google account in September 2016.
An investigation into Flores’ external hard drive found 20 images of prepubescent children between the ages of 5 and 12 raped by adult males. Other electronic devices in his home contained hundreds of videos and photos of children being sexually abused by adults.
“The defendant has now been sentenced to prison time for uploading and saving thousands of images and videos of children — some as young as 5 — being sexually abused by adults,” Brown said. “The defendant admitted when pleading guilty that his curiosity led to a sick obsession. Photos and videos of children being molested and abused are for all intents and purposes crime scene images. The victims are real people who will suffer with the memory of this abuse for the rest of their lives.”
MOUNT PLEASANT, WI — A man who admitted to having an addiction to looking at young girls was arrested again after Sheriff's deputies conducted a search warrant that revealed he was downloading child pornography.
On Monday June 12 at 9:45 a.m., Investigators from the Racine County Sheriff’s Office, executed a Search Warrant at a residence in the 5700 Block of Cambridge Circle, in the Village of Mt. Pleasant.
A computer was seized that contained numerous amounts of Child Pornography. The sole occupant of the residence, John A. Maloney, 43, was arrested for Possession of Child Pornography.
In 2001, Maloney was convicted in Racine County of Exposing Genitals to a Child. During the interview with Investigators from the Racine County Sheriff’s Office Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) unit, Maloney admitted that he downloaded videos and photos that he knew to be Child Pornography.
According to officials, Maloney stated some of the images and videos depict children “8 years and older”. Maloney states, “I know I have an addiction of wanting to look at young girls”.
Sheriff Schmaling stated that he is committed to exposing these pedophiles to the public and states, “it is our mission and clear intent to hunt down these predators before they strike one of our innocent children”. 

John A. Maloney is currently in custody in the Racine County Jail on a $250,000 cash bond.
