CHILD PORN ADDICTION 17


Joshua Talbot became 'addicted' to looking at images and videos of babies and toddlers being sexually abused


A man has been spared jail after he was caught with thousands of “vile” images of child abuse on his computer.

Cardiff Crown Court heard Joshua Talbot, who was planning a career in the Army, started looking at the material when he was 16 and had more than 5,000 indecent images.

Judge Jeremy Jenkins told the defendant: “You must realise that these are very serious offences.”

The court heard police searched his home in Cardiff on April 6.

David Pugh, prosecuting, said Talbot was there with his family and told officers: “There are torrents on there.”

The prosecutor said peer-to-peer groups were the target of the police investigation.

Talbot went on to admit: “I went through a phase when I was 16 of downloading stuff. There’ll be stuff on there but I haven’t looked at it for years. I’m going to jail.”

Mr Pugh said police found a “large number” of images, including 720 still images and 318 videos of the most serious Category A.

The court heard there were 1,425 still and 138 moving images at Category B, plus 2,721 still and 88 moving images at Category C, along with 56 prohibited images.

Prosecutors said some of the videos showed babies and toddlers being raped and sexually abused. There was no evidence the defendant had distributed the material.

Talbot, 21, from Clovelly Crescent, Llanrumney, admitted possessing indecent and prohibited images of children.
Laurence Jones, representing Talbot, said his client had no previous convictions or cautions.
Mr Jones said his client started looking at the material when he was 16 before developing an addiction. He wanted to seek help but was scared of the consequences.
The court heard Talbot, who is engaged, was planning to follow one of his siblings into the Army.
Mr Jones said he had shown “clear remorse” and was keen to engage with any rehabilitation activity.
Judge Jenkins described the images as “vile”. He told the defendant: “Every single one of those images, as I am sure you will realise, represents the real abuse of children.
Those images are produced because people like you are prepared to look at them and they fuel a growing market.
The judge imposed a five-year Sexual Harm Prevention Order and the defendant’s name will remain on the sex offenders' register for the next 10 years.
Judge Jenkins noted it must have taken “some degree of courage” for Talbot to tell his family and friends about his offending.
He said: “It is clear to me that you are very ashamed of your actions, as you should be. I feel, in the circumstances, that I can just about suspend the operation of the sentence.”
Talbot was given a 10-month jail term suspended for two years.
The judge also made a two-year community order, requiring him to complete 30 days of a rehabilitation activity and 200 hours of unpaid work.

Investigators were tipped off by an employee of a suburban law firm that child pornography had been found in the office. 

Prosecutors state that a “nauseating” amount of child pornography images were found at the law office of Ralph Tellefsen III, 62.

Tellefsen was arrested and charged with a class 2 felony for seven counts of possession of child pornography. DuPage County State Attorney Robert Berlin explained that the employee found the child pornography on a printer at the office of Tellefsen & Associates on august 27, 2017. They immediately called the police. Officers arrived at the Elmhurst office and found a banker’s box filled with thousands of images of child pornography. Tellefsen shares the office space with a real estate company.
Berlin said, “The sheer number of child pornography images possessed by Mr. Tellefsen is nauseating. Each one of these disgusting photographs represents yet another innocent victim of child pornography. The filing of today’s charges against Mr. Tellefsen sends the message that my office will move swiftly and vigorously to prosecute any allegations of child pornography.”
Elmhurst Police Chieff Michael Ruth believes the images were downloaded and copied from the internet.
Tellefsen was at the office when police arrived, placing him under arrest. He was taken into custody and released on $75,000 bond. His next court appearance will be September 18 before Judge John Kinsella. He was also ordered to have no contact with children under the age of 18 and is prohibited from using a computer or Internet access.
Do you think child pornography is an addiction just like any other addiction and should be treated as such? Or do you feel that those caught up in child pornography should be treated as the criminals they are with no compassion? Tell us your thoughts in the comments.

A 52-year-old paedophile from Midway encouraged children to perform sexual acts over the internet and was caught with more than 900 indecent images and movies of children on his computer.
Michael Williams, of Midway Road, has now been jailed for six years after appearing at Derby Crown Court to admit possession of a total of 595 movies and 415 indecent images of children in Swadlincote made over a six-year period.
A police chief investigating the cases of paedophiles online has welcomed the sentencing, saying that not only was Williams encouraging the sexual abuse of children he "went further" by encouraging children to perform sexual acts over the internet and then recorded it.

Williams admitted possession of 179 extreme pornographic movies and 385 images which involved a person performing a sexual act on a live animal in Swadlincote between December 14, 2010, and June 6, 2016.
He also admitted making 100 category C indecent movies and 15 category C indecent images of a children; making 76 category B indecent movies and six category B indecent images of a child; and 186 category A, the most serious, indecent movies and nine category A indecent images of a child in Swadlincote December 14, 2010, and June 6, 2016.
Indecent images are now classified intro three categories: category A – deemed the most severe, category B – the mid-range in terms of seriousness and category C, the least. Each category has a list of characteristics used to assist a jury, and the deemed categories will set the sentencing boundaries.

Williams also pleaded guilty to making 34 category C self-generated indecent movies of a child; 16 category B self-generated indecent movies of a child, and four category A self-generated indecent movies of a child, in Swadlincote between January 20, 2016 and June 3, 2016.
Williams also incited a boy aged under 16 into engaging in sexual activity in Swadlincote on May 26, 2016 and June 9, 2016, and incited a girl aged under into engaging in sexual activity in Swadlincote on December 14, 2011.
Williams has been jailed for six years. He has also been made the subject of a sexual harm prevention order until further notice and put on a barring list which prevents him from working with children in the future.

There was also an order for the forfeiture of his computer and hard drive.
Detective Constable Alex Edwards, from Derbyshire Police's paedophile online investigation team, said: "People who view and download indecent images are fuelling the most abhorrent type of crime, and directly encouraging the sexual abuse of children.
"Williams not only committed this type of offence, but went further by encouraging children to perform sexual acts over the internet and recording it.
"I am pleased with the sentence and hope it acts as a warning to others that we will not tolerate this type of behaviour, and we will do everything we can to get these offenders before the courts.
"It shows how seriously we treat these crimes and we will continue to pursue prosecutions, to disrupt and dismantle the sharing of indecent images and the abuse of children."


A Concord man was sentenced to a minimum of two years in prison for possessing child sexual abuse images.
Stephen R. Mann, 64, recently pleaded guilty to two felony counts of the charge in Merrimack County Superior Court. As part of a plea deal, prosecutors dismissed eight other charges against Mann, all alleging similar crimes.
Concord police said Mann had downloaded from the Internet – and also uploaded – images of children being sexually abused.
Judge John Kissinger Jr. sentenced Mann to two to five years in prison on one count of possessing child sexual abuse images. On the second count, Mann received a 7½- to 15 year sentence, all suspended for 20 years.
Mann was arrested on a warrant in fall 2016 after a yearlong investigation by local, state and federal authorities.

BILLINGS - A convicted Billings sex offender is accused of downloading more than 33,000 images of child pornography, mostly involving infants, onto his computer.
Roy Deming, 63, was set to appear in Yellowstone County Justice Court on Thursday on one count of sexual abuse of children.
Deming was convicted of sexual assault in 1998 and is a registered sex offender.
The Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force recently received a tip that a computer with an IP address in Billings had been downloading child pornography.
The Billings Police Department launched an investigation and traced the computer to a home on Washington Street.
Officers went to the house and spoke with Deming, who admitted he’d been downloading child pornography for many years.
Deming also admitted he has a sexual preference for girls as young as 7.
Officers searched Deming’s computer and found 32,883 images of child pornography and 316 pornographic videos involving children.
Deming had labeled the folders on his computer with titles denoting child pornography.
One folder was titled: “Toddlers, babies, little girls.”
The images have been sent to the National Center for Missing and Endangered Children to help identify the victims.
Deming is being held at the Yellowstone County jail.


A former school governor who imported a child sex doll into the UK has been jailed for a total of 16 months.
David Turner, 72, admitted importing the child-size item and possessing 34,000 images of child sexual abuse.
An investigation began when the UK Border Force intercepted a package in November, imported from China.
The National Crime Agency (NCA) then discovered that Turner, of Ramsgate, Kent, had two other child sex dolls, and indecent images of children.

Legal first

Turner was sentenced by Judge Simon James at Canterbury Crown Court for possessing a doll that was 3ft 10in (1.16m) tall, which he had also bought clothes for.
He was sentenced to eight months for owning the doll and eight months for possessing images of child sexual abuse.
He was officially convicted of one charge of importing a child sex doll, three charges of possession of indecent images of a child, three charges of making indecent images, and a charge of possessing extreme pornographic images.
In July, a court ruled the child sex doll was an obscene item, after Turner's lawyers had argued it was not covered by a law banning the importation of obscene item.
Other men have been convicted for importing child sex dolls, but this was the first case where the question of whether a doll is indecent or obscene had been tested by the courts.
In a police interview the former church warden admitted he preferred viewing indecent images of girls aged between four and 10 and added he had secretly taken pictures of minors in public. Children in the images were as young as three.
He was placed on the sex offenders register for 10 years and given an indefinite sexual harm prevention order.
Officers also found that he had 29 fictional stories which described the rape of children, but the accounts fell outside the Obscene Publications Act.
The NCA's Hazel Stewart said: "Importing child dolls to have sex with - as David Turner did - is a crucial flag to potential offending against children.
"In this case it enabled us to uncover Turner's long-standing sexual interest in children. He should not be near them and I am delighted that our investigation has seen him convicted and jailed."

'Swift action'

Turner is one of seven people in the UK to have been convicted for possessing the obscene dolls to-date.
The Border Force has seized 123 dolls from 120 individuals since March 2016.
They were convicted using a 19th Century law, called the Customs Consolidation Act of 1876.
The Crown Prosecution Service's Donna East said: "Given the nature of the offence, which is very much modern day, with people ordering these sex dolls online, it is perhaps surprising that we are using laws dating back to the end of the 19th century, but this demonstrates how the law can apply to many circumstances."
The NSPCC has complained that the dolls offer a "legal loophole" to potential child sex abusers, and has called for them to be criminalised in the same way as indecent images.
The charity's chief executive Peter Wanlow said: "At present in England and Wales it is only illegal to import an obscene or indecent item. It is not a crime to make these dolls, to distribute them or to possess them.
"This is baffling and needs to be changed so that the law in relation to child sex dolls is brought in line with the law on prohibited images.
"I urge [the home secretary] to take swift action and remedy this issue at the earliest available opportunity."

Child Sex Dolls for Pedophiles 15 agosto 2016


A convicted sex offender who became "addicted" to secretly filming schoolgirls has been jailed for 27 months.
Robert Paterson, 45, who was previously jailed for distributing child abuse images, filmed the girls near a supermarket in Stenhousemuir.
The footage was found during a police raid following a tip off that Paterson had downloaded more abuse material.
Paterson admitted both charges at Falkirk Sheriff Court.
The court was told that as well as more child abuse material, officers recovered seven videos taken by Paterson on a phone of girls in school uniform between April 2015 and December last year.
They also found a camera, with 301 covert pictures of girls in its memory, taken around the same location.
The identities of the girls had not been established, but in most cases detectives could tell from their dress and appearance that they went to local schools and ranged in age from five to 16.

'High risk'

The court heard that Paterson had moved back to his mother's house in Stenhousemuir in 2008 after his release from a 12-month prison sentence.
That conviction meant Paterson was sacked from his job organising buses for primary and secondary schools across the Falkirk Council area.
Mike Lowrie, defending, said "With regard to the schoolgirls, he did it once and became addicted to it.
"On his release, things became rather difficult for Mr Paterson.
"He started to become reclusive, and was unable to find work.
"He is described in the criminal justice social work report as being of high risk of re-offending - well, that might be right.
"I appreciate that a custodial disposal is likely to be at the forefront of the court's mind."
Sheriff John Mundy jailed Paterson for 27 months, plus an extension period of a further 27 months during which he will be subject to prison recall if he reoffends.
Sheriff Mundy, who also placed Paterson on the sex offenders register for a further 10 years, said: "I've got to consider the protection of the public."

Convicted sex offender secretly filmed schoolgirls 7 September 2017 


A troubled man caught with more than 100 child abuse images on his computer told police his pornography habits had “escalated”.
Police received information that Andrew Simpson’s internet address had been downloading indecent pictures of children.
He immediately confessed there would be images on his laptop as he was arrested and his home searched at 6.20am on January 18.
Officers found 126 pictures including four at the most serious level.
The children depicted in the images were as young as 10, prosecutor Jenny Haigh told Teesside Crown Court today.
Simpson, who suffered from post traumatic stress disorder, depression and anxiety, said he discovered an illegal image by accident.
It escalated during his regular searches for adult pornography” was his explanation for his activities.
Simpson, of Sherwood Drive, Marske , admitted three charges of making indecent images of children - his first conviction.
Rachel Dyson, defending, said Simpson showed clear remorse and did not try to hide anything.
She said the former steel worker told police where the images were, made full admissions and pleaded guilty at the first opportunity.
She added: “He’s very keen to move forward from this. He doesn’t want to go back that way and wants some help and assistance.”
He had mental health problems and possible autism was being investigated, said Ms Dyson.
The Probation Service considered him to be a low risk of reoffending or causing serious harm.
Judge Peter Armstrong told Simpson: “In the context of such cases that’s not a substantial number of images.
“The courts deal with cases involving very large numbers of images.
“From what I’ve read about you in the pre-sentence report, it’s clear that you have mental health issues.
“You’ve been suffering from post traumatic stress disorder, that was diagnosed in 2011, also long-term depression and anxiety, and it’s thought that you may be on the autistic spectrum, but that’s yet to be confirmed.
“You have some insight into your problems, that this involved distorted thinking, but the fact that this is a form of child abuse I think needs to be reinforced.
“People who look at images like this are part and parcel of the abuse of children because if there weren’t people like you looking at these things it may be that children wouldn’t be abused in the first place.”
Simpson was given an eight-month prison sentence suspended for two years with 30 days’ rehabilitation activity including one-to-one work.
He also received a sexual harm prevention order governing his internet and computer use, and will be on the sex offenders’ register, both for 10 years.
He will also be barred from working with children.

Troubled man said his use of pornography 'escalated' to child abuse images GARETH LIGHTFOOT 6 SEP 2017


SCRANTON, Pa. (AP) — A New Jersey man who collected pornographic images of underage victims through extortion has been sentenced to 25 years in prison after his conviction in Pennsylvania.

The Citizens' Voice reports (http://bit.ly/2wepFJn ) 45-year-old Hubert Young, of Basking Ridge, was sentenced Thursday by a federal judge in Scranton. Young had previously pleaded guilty to child pornography production.

Prosecutors say Young victimized at least 12 minors between the ages of 11 and 17 between January 2015 and June 2016. The victims lived in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Ohio and Indiana.
Young posed as a teenager on Facebook before convincing the minors to send him pornographic images and threatened to post the images if the victims didn't send more.
After prison, Young will serve 10 years' probation and be required to get sex-offender treatment.

A concreter accused of downloading child exploitation material of infants and dead toddlers had instructions on how to rape children without being caught, a court has heard.
Christopher Andrew Searle made full admissions to detectives when they uncovered a cache of disturbing images, including dead toddlers and infants being raped, on a USB stick and external hard drive.
The Brisbane Magistrates Court on Monday heard the children featured in many of the images Searle is accused of accessing were aged between seven and 10, with the youngest only 18 months old.
Details of the abuse material are too disturbing to publish.
"The images include images of deceased children - toddlers and infants - as well as instructions on how to rape those persons," police prosecutor Peri Cardiff said.
The 47-year-old has been charged with several offences including five counts of possessing child exploitation material.
He was granted conditional bail following a brief hearing.

Child porn accused had rape instructions Sep 4, 2017

Victorian crossbench MP Rachel Carling-Jenkins has spoken of her anguish at discovering her estranged husband was addicted to child pornography while they were married. Dr Carling-Jenkins explained that her husband had continued to abuse her emotionally and financially.

"My marriage ended instantly and I left home the day I made that discovery and I've not returned to the family home since except to pick up belongings."

However, Dr Carling-Jenkins said her husband still resisted signing divorce papers.

"I remain vulnerable financially and physically, fearful of my ability to protect myself."

But Dr Carling-Jenkins' greatest concern was for the children whose innocence and childhood had been stolen from them.

"Those little girls would not have been abused if people like my ex-husband did not provide a market for that abuse."

Dr Carling-Jenkins' husband, Gary Jenkins, was sentenced to four months imprisonment on March 1 for knowingly possessing child pornography.
He first appeared in Sunshine Magistrates Court on December 9, 2016 but the case was adjourned.
Mr Jenkins will be required to report to Victoria Police for the next eight years after he was placed on the Sex Offenders Register.
An appeal to the County Court on April 10 was abandoned.
Outside Parliament on Thursday, Dr Carling-Jenkins said her decision to speak out had sparked criticism from "some quarters", including an abusive email that day.
Dr Carling-Jenkins said she had also been criticised by some who believed she should have stood by her estranged husband.
"This is an attitude in society that, no matter what, a wife should not stand up and call her husband out," she said.
"I don't by any means want to make this a gendered issue but it is a prevailing attitude in society … I think it's wrong and it needs to stop."
In an emotional speech to Parliament on Thursday, Dr Carling-Jenkins broke her silence on the personal toll his crime has taken on her family.
She said she was shocked to find her husband Gary had an "extensive" collection of highly disturbing material.
"In this discovery I viewed deeply distressing images which have caused me immediate and then ongoing anguish," she said.
Dr Carling-Jenkins told Parliament she and her son reported the crimes to police after discovering the material in February last year.
Prior to the discovery she had believed that her husband had a mental illness and had tried to get him help.
But Dr Carling-Jenkins said he had consistently thwarted those attempts to help him.
"I want to make one thing clear; I had no idea prior to February 2016 that my husband was addicted to child pornography.
"I had believed for a long time that he was suffering from a mental illness and I had attempted on numerous occasions to get him help," she said.
"However Gary had consistently rebuffed or sabotaged these attempts and I thought at the time that was another symptom of a mental illness.
"Gary does not have a mental illness, his behaviours stem from something much more sinister."
She thanked police for their work in their investigation, but said her husband's inclusion on the sex offenders' register and a "sentence of a few months" was inadequate punishment.

HUNDREDS of residents have sought help to stop looking at indecent images of children online, the Evening Times can reveal. 

More than 800 people from the city have visited an online service since it was set up in October 2015, seeking help to stop viewing the explicit pictures or videos. 

The Stop It Now! Get Help site has seen a growing number of people looking for advice in the last two years, with bosses acknowledging the issue is “a massive problem”.
Experts say the resource, which can be accessed anonymously, is helping to tackle child sexual abuse and argue the number of people who are convicted of  the crime is just the “tip of the iceberg”.

Around a third of the total number of Scottish visitors to the site have come from Glasgow, which has the highest number of visitors of any Scottish city. 

Since October 2015, a total of 836 people from the city have visited the website compared to Edinburgh’s 791 and Dundee’s 173 people.
In the first 12 months since launching, around 300 people from the city visited the site, however in the last 10 months the number has risen by almost 80 per cent, with 555 people using the resource between October 2016 and today. 

Organisers say the increase is in line with the rising number of visitors throughout the UK, with a total of 3579 people from Scotland and more than 43,000 across the using the site since 2015.

Stuart Allardyce, national manager at Stop it Now Scotland said: “One of the things we do know is that the amount of images that are online and are being accessed by adults is increasing. 

That is partly because self-produced images by adolescents are sometimes being uploaded onto websites, but in the majority of cases those images are generally created in the context of a child being sexually exploited.

“There are real victims here. This is not a victimless crime.”

Mr Allardyce, who is a former social worker, said the scale of the problem is “too big for the police and said: “We know that this is a massive problem. 
“In Scotland last year around 640 people were charged with viewing and downloading indecent images of children.

From several studies, we now know that the scale of the problem goes way beyond that – maybe as much as 10 times the size of that. 

“We know that those who are charged by the police are just the tip of the iceberg and it is a problem that is way too big for the police. We need a range of responses to make sure the police can target their resources on the most dangerous individuals.”

Mr Allardyce said his organisation, along with Police Scotland, has been running a campaign since July to encourage people, mainly men, to use the website if they are looking at indecent images

He explained: “What we have been doing is trying to explain to people that looking at these images is illegal. There is no grey area.

“We have also been trying to explain why these images are illegal, and that there are victims in this.

“Also, the implications of being arrested are massive – it can lead to sex offender registration, custody...it will have huge implications for your employment, for your family. 

“The repercussions are extremely serious.”

Detective Superintendent Elaine Galbraith, Head of Child Protection, Police Scotland, said: “Sharing and viewing indecent images of children is child sexual abuse and a criminal offence and as such we utilise our specialist departments and officers across local policing to pursue such offending behaviour.
“Police Scotland works with a range of partners to ensure there are pathways to prevention programmes to reduce the likelihood of escalation and re-offending either when someone is concerned about their sexual thinking or behaviour towards children or young people, or following a police investigation into offences. 

“We treat all reports and information that suggest that a child is at risk of online sexual abuse  with the highest priority and we will pursue and target the people involved.”
