CHILD PORN ADDICTION 21

A criminal complaint and information obtained by the Telegram tell more about the arrest of a Temple man on federal child pornography charges.
Jon Mark Johnson, 53, remained in a Waco detention facility after his Oct. 13 arrest on a warrant claiming he both possessed and received child pornography.
The Temple Police Department first began the investigation when a female said she saw a light coming from near the bathtub’s overflow drain. When she looked further, she found a hidden, pin-hole camera installed behind the drain that led to a recording machine in a bedroom where Johnson slept. The female said she believed Johnson put the camera there to watch her bathe.
Officers got a search warrant for the Johnson home. Johnson came home while the officers searched and, before officers knew what he was doing, he reportedly destroyed CDs and erased his computer’s hard drive. The cut-up discs were found in a trashcan and were taken along with the computer by the police department.
Another search located many CDs, DVDs, VHS tapes and other media, which were taken as evidence.
During an interview with Johnson, he reportedly admitted to a pornography addiction and said he had child pornography. He said he destroyed the CDs and put them in the trashcan.
Found on some of the recovered discs were sexually explicit images. One disc showed the images were created on Dec. 30, 2010. Another disc said the child pornography images were created on Dec. 16, 2011, the document said.
Johnson told an investigator he was moving his assets to his mother’s possession because he was “going to prison for life.”
A male who said he knows Johnson well found records Johnson made about 20 years ago and watched some of them. When Johnson found out that the male saw them, he moved the boxes of videos to a different location, the document said.
The images Johnson reportedly had were mailed, shipped and/or transported using interstate and foreign commerce because he used the Internet to download them.
Probable cause affidavits showed Johnson was arrested on Feb. 12 and previously on Oct. 2, 2012, on Temple assault/family violence charges.
An arrest affidavit said Johnson intentionally caused injury to a family member on Feb. 12 by hitting him on and about the head, face and body.
A probable cause affidavit for the October 2012 charge said Johnson hit the same family member with a bat.
The affidavit and the information showed that the male who said in the two arrest affidavits he was assaulted was the same male who found the boxes of pornographic videos about 20 years ago.

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WVIR) -
A federal grand jury is indicting a former Charlottesville teacher on child pornography charges.
The U.S. Department of Justice announced Wednesday, October 25, that 57-year-old Richard Allen Wellbeloved-Stone is now facing three charges of production of child pornography and one count of possession of child pornography.
Wellbeloved-Stone was an environmental science teacher at Charlottesville High School until investigators say they found evidence of him molesting a young girl, taking pictures of it, and sharing videos of other children having sex.
Charlottesville police and federal agents had executed a search warrant at Wellbeloved-Stone's Cottonwood Road home on July 25, and initially charged him with one count of possession of child pornography. Two days later, Charlottesville City Schools announced that he had been suspended.
October 6, a judge in Charlottesville Juvenile and Domestic Relations District Court granted the prosecution's request to nolle prosse 19 charges of production of child pornography against the former teacher. This means prosecutors dropped the charges in juvenile and domestic court in order to make way for the federal case against the defendant.
Wellbeloved-Stone is also still facing one charge of aggravated sexual battery, which is expected to be taken up in a Charlottesville Juvenile and Domestic Relations District Court on Friday, October 27.

A paedophile opera singer from Stevenage has been jailed after being caught with sexual images of children and animals just months into a community sentence.

Tenor and actor Nicholas Ransley – who has sung at the Royal Opera House and appeared on BBC TV – tried to cover his tracks by manipulating the internet history on his laptop in violation of a sexual harm prevention order imposed for previous offences.
The 50-year-old, of Vardon Road, admitted the charges when he appeared at St Albans Crown Court – and Judge Stephen Warner sentenced him to 13 months behind bars.
The court heard that London-trained Ransley, who played Neil Armstrong in Channel 4 TV opera Man On The Moon, was found in possession of 16 indecent images of children on his computer in Stevenage in September last year.
The computer also had 19 images on it showing sex acts involving dogs and horses.
Ransley had been handed a community sentence and sexual harm prevention order by a judge at Cambridge Crown Court in July 2016, forbidding him to delete or amend records of his online activity – but he nevertheless tried to wipe the evidence.
Entering pleas at St Albans Crown Court on September 8 this year, he admitted three counts of making indecent photographs of children, two counts of breaching his sexual harm prevention order and one of possessing extreme pornography involving animals.
A spokesman from child protection charity the NSPCC said: “It beggars belief that Ransley thought he could breach his sexual harm prevention order and get away with it.
Behind every indecent image of a child is a vulnerable, young victim who was abused because of the demand created by offenders who view this depraved material.
“Jail alone is not enough for Ransley. He must undergo a treatment programme as part of his sentence to lessen the risk he poses to children in the future.”
Anyone concerned about indecent images of children or who believes a child is at risk of abuse can call the NSPCC Helpline on 0808 800 5000.

GREENE – A federal grand jury has returned a child pornography indictment against a Floyd County sex offender.
On Oct. 18, a grand jury in U.S. District Court in Cedar Rapids handed up the indictment charging 54-year-old David Paul Myers of Greene with on count of receipt of child porn and two counts each of possession of child porn and accessing child porn. 
Myers has prior convictions for third-degree sexual abuse involving boys in Butler and Floyd counties from 1998.
In the new charge, court records allege Myers had visual depictions of minors engaged in sexual activity between March 2005 and January 2015, which were stored on a Toshiba laptop computer and a CD labeled “Hot Young Lads Vol. 2,” and attempted to access child porn on a Samsung cell phone and an RCA tablet.
Court records show that his home was searched by authorities in January 2015. 

A children’s charity has spoken of the appalling effects of child abuse after a Newhall paedophile became addicted to downloading sickening images over a five-year period.
The NSPCC has said images downloaded by Gareth Studden, of The Fairway, Newhall, will have a lasting effect on the victims and contribute to their "on-going trauma.".
The Burton Mail previously reported how Studden escaped an immediate jail term and was instead handed a suspended sentence after he was caught with almost 600 pictures or movies of children that showed sexual abuse by adults. Now, further information has been revealed following his sentencing at Derby Crown Court.
After police carried out a search warrant at his home and seized his Acer laptop, experts found almost 600 pictures or movies of children that showed sexual abuse by adults.
But since his arrest he has been working with a specialist charity that attempts to rehabilitate people who offend in this way, saving him from an immediate prison term.
Handing him a 12-month prison term, suspended for 18 months, Judge Jonathan Bennett said: "Yours is quite a sad story of a lonely individual and at the age of 41 you have no previous convictions.
"This is not uncommon with offending of this nature and unfortunately you got involved over a number of years.

"You have become addicted to downloading and viewing these images.

"These are real children, these films and photographs are not just some kind of fantasy you are indulging in. Real children are being abused in these images to satisfy your particular predilection."
Mark Knowles, prosecuting, said police raided Studdens' home, on February 9, after information was received that his internet address was linked to downloading indecent images.
He said: "This defendant admitted he was the sole occupant at the address and immediately admitted he was responsible for whatever they might find on his laptop.

"His computer equipment was seized and on it were found 497 images of categories A to C and 94 moves that also spanned all three categories.
"He was interviewed and fully admitted he had downloaded them and thought the police would find around 500 pictures and movies. He said he was attracted to girls aged eight to 10 and said he did need help to address this."
Studden pleaded guilty to four counts of possessing indecent images of children.
Will Bennett, mitigating, said his client had not offended since his arrest and had contacted the Lucy Faithful Foundation - a UK-wide charity which works to tackle child sexual abuse.
He said: "He has started to sort himself out even before his case came to court."
As well as the suspended jail term, Judge Bennett ordered Studden to carry out 150 hours unpaid work and attend 30 rehabilitation days with the probation service.
He also handed him a 10-year sexual harm prevention order. Speaking after sentencing, a spokesman for the NSPCC said: "The children in these images and videos are victims of sexual abuse and have suffered appallingly for this material to be made.
"The knowledge that their abuse can be viewed again and again and may never be removed contributes to their ongoing trauma.
"To help put an end to this trade in online abuse imagery, internet companies and authorities must work together to stop this content from being published and ensure it is quickly taken down when it does appear online.
"Offenders like Studden should get the necessary treatment as part of their rehabilitation activity to prevent them from carrying out further child sex crimes."
Anyone concerned about a child can contact the NSPCC helpline on 0808 800 5000. Children can speak to a dedicated counsellor at Childline free and confidentially on 0800 1111 or via www.childline.org.uk

A Venice man is accused of possessing child pornography after an investigation connected his IP address to downloading previously identified pornographic files.
Mark Alan Childress, 56, was arrested and charged with 40 counts of possession of child pornography, according to the Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office. He is being held at the Sarasota County jail without bond.
But Childress did not deny the accusations, according to detectives.
Childress told detectives he has been collecting child pornography for many years, so there may be hundreds or thousands of additional images and videos of child pornography found on his electronic devices,” the lead detective wrote in an arrest report.
The investigation into Childress began when detectives with the sheriff’s office Intelligence Unit investigating crimes against children identified his IP address as having downloaded files containing child pornography, according to an arrest report. The files had been downloaded between April 16, 2016 and Aug. 22.
Childress is accused of using his IP address to offer to share the pornographic files, and undercover detectives say they were able to download pornographic photos and videos that did depict children. The IP address was traced back to Childress’ girlfriend with whom he has lived with for almost five years, according to the report.
Detectives went to Childress’ home in the 3300 block of Orange Road in Venice with a search warrant signed by a judge authorizing them to search the home. Detectives first spoke with Childress’ girlfriend who told them no one else lived in the home and that she had not been involved.
Childress agreed to speak with detectives, they reported, and admitted to having downloaded the child pornography. Detectives also say he told them where his laptops and other electronic devices, which contained the files in question, were inside his van and provided them with his passwords.
A preliminary digital forensics scan of his hard rive found at least 40 images depicting child pornography, according to the report.
The additional digital evidence collected will be forensically examined, and Childress could face more charges.
“Of particular concern, Childress also told detectives that he frequently travels to Thailand and that his passport is filled with stamps from there,” the lead detective wrote in the report. “He did not disclose his purpose for the trips, however, this is a known country people travel to for child prostitution.
His girlfriend told detectives that the last time she could remember Childress had visited Thailand was two years ago.
According to the Sarasota County jail’s booking records, Childress’ listed occupation is refurbishing hot tubs.
RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) -
A Richmond man will spend seven years in prison in connection with distributing and possessing child pornography, according to Attorney General Mark Herring's Office.
Rory Joseph Kennedy, 26, of Richmond, was sentenced to 80 years in prison, with 73 years suspended after pleading guilty to two counts of distribution of child pornography and eight counts of possession of child pornography, the attorney general's office said.
Attorney General Herring's Office says Kennedy will be placed on supervised release indefinitely and will be required to register as a sex offender wherever he lives or works.
"Nothing is more important than the safety and security of our children, and my team and I will continue to be relentless in fighting the scourge of child pornography and putting criminals behind bars," said Attorney General Mark Herring. "This is another strong sentence that takes a dangerous predator out of the community, and I'm so proud of the cooperation between my team of prosecutors and investigators and our law enforcement partners that helps keep Virginia children safe."
Law enforcement identified Kennedy after files were shared with undercover investigators over a peer-to-peer file-sharing network. The internet service records were then traced to Kennedy's apartment on West Grace Street. A search warrant was executed in April 2016, and detectives seized Kennedy's laptop and external hard drives.
Investigators performed a forensic examination and "found over 1,000 images and videos of child pornography, as well as file-sharing software, saved in an active, accessible space."
During an interview with officers, "Kennedy admitted to using file-sharing programs to obtain child pornography and to knowing that the program he used would share his files with other users," a press release said.
Attorney General Herring's Office said a majority of the images recovered depicted children as young as infants being sexually abused. "Some of them have been identified by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children as abuse victims in prior law enforcement investigations," according to the attorney general's office.
A man who downloaded hundreds of photographs and videos of young girls being sexually abused claimed he was working as a vigilante to expose paedophiles, Lincoln Crown Court was told.

Matthew Pointon downloaded images of girls as young as five years old being abused and went on to pass on some of the photographs to other men using the Kik messaging app.

Phil Howes, prosecuting, said that Pointon’s use of the internet led to him receiving a warning from his internet service provider that his activities were illegal and he could face jail but he continued to look at the illegal images until police raided his home at Whaplode St Catherines on November 15 last year.

The prosecutor said that over a six month period Pointon downloaded 979 pornographic photographs of children and 233 video clips featuring more than seven hours of children being sexually abused.

Mr Howes said: “These offences arose because the police had information that led them to the home address of the defendant.

“A number of items were seized. The only significant item on which there was found indecent images was a Samsung mobile phone.

“Investigations showed that he had been using the platform Kik to distribute images to four different people.

“When he was interviewed he was at pains to give an explanation as to why he was doing this.

“He suggested he was some sort of vigilante who was seeking to entrap paedophiles and pass the information onto the police. He said he did it anonymously.”

Mr Howes said that the police investigation revealed Pointon had chatted over the internet with the people he was sending the illicit images. During those conversations he revealed an interest in young girls.

The prosecutor said there was no record of Pointon contacting the authorities with information and added: “The police regard it as fanciful when he said he didn’t have these images for sexual gratification.”

Pointon, 43, currently of no fixed address, but formerly of Cranesgate North, Whaplode St Catherines, admitted three charges of making a total of 1,212 indecent images of children on dates between March 31 and October 17, 2016.

He also admitted four charges of distributing indecent images of children, one charge of possession of prohibited images of children and a further charge of possession of extreme pornography.

He was jailed for a total of three years and given an indefinite sexual harm prevention order.

Judge John Pini QC, passing sentence, told him: “For every image, whether it is a still photograph or a video, that you have viewed and for every image that you have shared, somewhere in the world a very young child has been seriously sexually abused. These are real children who have had their lives destroyed.

“Your internet service provider issued a warning notice to you about what you were doing. That warning spelled out the consequences. You full well knew the consequences of what you were doing.

“I accept you have reached rock bottom but you have done so entirely at your own hands.

“The probation report says you are in complete denial. You put forward an account of reviling paedophiles and informing the police. I don’t accept any of that.

“This has to be an immediate custodial sentence. The court has to make it clear that those who view and distribute images like this will go to prison.”

Neil Sands, in mitigation, told the court: “He has conceded he will go to custody.

“It is a very substantial fall for a man with no previous convictions.

“The word foolish does not even begin to describe what he embarked upon.

“He is in denial. He simply cannot come to terms as to how he has done this.

“He has lost his job. He does not have a marriage any more and he has lost his home.

“He has put himself into the category of people he clearly reviles.

“Prison is going to have a substantial impact on him.”



MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — An 18-year-old Plymouth man is charged with sharing child pornography on social media and email.
The case is one of many keeping law enforcement busy across the state.
Tips to the Bureau of Criminal Apprehension about suspected illegal online activity involving children continues to rise.
So far this year, the BCA has received 1,660 tips.
That surpassed the 12,000 tips received in all of 2016.
In February of 2016, tips from Google led Plymouth police to a house on 43rd Place North.
By June of that year, police had a search warrant and took laptops, thumb drives and SD cards from the house.
Alec Cotter was 16 when the investigation began. He is now 18 and charged as an adult with 13 felony counts.
Investigators found more than 45,000 images. Children as young as 6 were shown in some of them.
You’re seeing more and more people for whatever reason get involved in viewing these types of images, which makes it problematic,” said Kyle Loven, the national director of Computer Forensic Service in Minnetonka.
Loven has 22 years of law enforcement experience, the past 13 spent as chief division council for the FBI.
He says the rise in child porn cases is disturbing.
“The problem is perhaps proliferating, but law enforcement is right on the heels of some of these folks who are engage in these activities,” Loven said.
The BCA says it sees lots of tips coming in from specific platforms like Google, ChatStep, DropBox, and Pinterest.
“With the sophisticated methods of law enforcement gaining steam and gaining momentum, law enforcement is much more capable of finding out who is doing this and much more capable of apprehending them,” Loven said.
Some experts say the rise in child porn is partly because of the ability to cheaply store lots of data.
Loven says Computer Forensic Services is working with 38 law enforcement agencies across the state to close in on those trying to exploit the most vulnerable.
Cotter is expected to make his first court appearance Nov. 16.
The BCA says the best way to protect your children from predators is to make sure you are aware of what they do online and they know to come to you if someone asks them to share personal images.


A Pretoria father’s pornographic addiction was so severe that it included child pornography and him taking naked pictures of his own two children, a boy and a girl, both aged 4.
The State called for an 18-year jail sentence for the 38-year-old man, who may not be identified to protect his children.
Gauteng High Court, Pretoria, Judge Ronel Tolmay convicted the man on eight charges - seven relating to the manufacturing and publication of mainly child pornography - and one of indecently assaulting his daughter.
The court heard how the man had, over the years, downloaded about 19 500 pornographic pictures - some highly disturbing in nature - from the internet. Hundreds of these pictures depict teenage porn.
While an expert was not called to try to establish the ages of the girls on the internet pictures, the judge said it was clear that several of them were very young.
Judge Tolmay also commented that it was an extremely unpleasant and disturbing experience for her to have viewed some of the footage, handed in as evidence, which involved his own two children.
As thousands of pornographic photos were handed to court which were downloaded from the internet, the judge asked the prosecution to downsize the material which she had to view.
The man, unkempt with long hair in a ponytail, admitted to some of the charges, including the indecent assault of his daughter. He said his first wife’s death affected him emotionally in a bad way.
As for the indecent assault, his daughter from his second marriage walked into the bedroom while he was watching porn on the internet, he said.
As he was “aroused” at the time, he forced her to perform a sexual deed on him.
He then ordered her to undress, which he recorded on his phone and ultimately made her lie on the bed, exposing herself, which he also recorded. He later downloaded the pictures of her.
He said he knew what he did was wrong and said he was sorry.
He also took naked pictures of his little son, which were downloaded. One of the pictures handed to court, depicted the boy naked in the bath, but the judge gave him the benefit of the doubt regarding this picture, as parents did sometimes take pictures of their children in the bath.
Reams of adult pornography was found on his computer, but the charges against him were aimed against those which depicted child or teen pornography.
The man admitted that he did search for, and downloaded, teen pornography.
His wife also handed in two “scripts” to the police which she had found among her husband’s belongings. These were notes or scripts he had written for two pornographic films. The one involved a 17-year-old as the main character, while the other did not involve children.
The footage involving his daughter was described by the court as “a sick action” and the judge said it was clear that his intention was to abuse her.
The children have been removed from the care of their parents and placed in safe care.
The father refused to testify in his own defence. The judge commented that it was not advisable for the children to testify about their trauma, as she did not want to subject them to secondary trauma.
The defence asked the court to show the accused mercy, as he is a first offender and not per se “into child porn”. It was said that he was into “porn in general”.
But the State said the pictures of the children were “despicable and disturbing”. He will be sentenced on November 28.


The largest collection of child sexual abuse material the Department of Internal Affairs has encountered has seen a 45-year-old sickness beneficiary being jailed for five years in the Wellington District Court.
Salman Jabbar Alhisaynawi, of Lower Hutt, pleaded guilty to seven representative charges of making, distributing and possessing child sexual abuse material.
Judge Ian Mill said he was puzzled that, as someone who had suffered the effects of trauma, Alhisaynawi had not recognised the trauma evident in the young victims when he traded the images.  
In early 2015 the United States' National Centre for Missing and Exploited Children referred to Internal Affairs six cybertipline complaints about a New Zealander uploading objectionable material to cloud storage accounts.
The collection is the largest the department has encountered.  
An examination showed Alhisaynawi's computer and storage equipment contained 222,704 images and 10,340 movies, of child sexual abuse

Most involved preteen children including oddlers and babies.  
He also had a paedophile's handbook, several hundred images of computer generated child sexual abuse, and pictures and movies of adult objectionable material. He had over 17 different cloud storage accounts.

Beneficiary jailed over biggest collection of child sex abuse material encountered by NZ authorities November 1 2017 

Federal authorities arrested a man who they accuse of using a cellphone to record the sexual assault of a minor relative, according to a criminal complaint. 

Manuel Tedoro Perez is facing a federal charge of coercing a minor to engage in sexually explicit conduct, court documents show.

According to the criminal complaint, Perez is accused of abusing the minor relative from June 2016 to October 2017. He also admitted to downloading “numerous” images of videos of child pornography from a Russian website, which authorities backed up after forensic analysis, according to the complaint against Perez.

Man accused of recording abuse November 2, 2017

A “horrifying” number of people in the UK are looking at images of child abuse online, according to one of the country’s leading police officers.
Dave Thompson, the chief constable of West Midlands police, told the Commons home affairs select committee that society at large needs to discuss the issue, which is about “much more than law enforcement”.
“I am staggered by what I see in terms of the operations the force carries out on the peer-to-peer sharing of images and more sensitive covert policing techniques we carry out,” he said. “The amount of men in this country who appear to show an active interest in this area is horrifying and the scale of it, I think, takes my breath away.
“There is a really big discussion I think, as a society, about how we deal with this, that’s much more than law enforcement. Of course it makes us all feel deeply uncomfortable to think that people who have that involvement in those activities should in any shape or form escape punishment. But the scale of it is just absolutely huge.”
There was a 258% increase in the number of websites dedicated to the distribution of child sexual abuse imagery between 2015 and 2016, according to the Internet Watch Foundation. However, the UK hosts less than 0.1% of the world’s child sexual abuse images.
At the meeting the Tory MP Tim Loughton asked about suggestions that there should be alternative prosecutions for those guilty of viewing indecent images because those in denial were unlikely to be receptive to treatment.
Thompson said: “Everything as a police officer and a parent says that we need to do something urgently to deter people in this area.
“I think if people are in denial that they’ve got a problem, then we need to be really careful that treatment might not work, but I think the broader issue that’s being raised is this is a massive challenge, I think, that goes far beyond policing.”
Charities including Stop It Now! work to eradicate child porn online and provide confidential support to users. The majorities of offenders avoid custodial sentences, with suspended sentences and community orders more common.
Police budgets, excluding counter-terrorism grants, have fallen sharply since 2010, amounting to a 20% cut from 2010-15 and police numbers continue to fall.
Gareth Morgan, the chief constable of Staffordshire police, said that the decision to prosecute those who view explicit images of children should not be based on whether police have the resources. “It has to be based on judgments that a range of people make, not just the police service,” he told MPs.
“And that’s about how you best manage the risk of an offender going forward so there’s a range of of options, and I think that’s a decision that you take with a range of partners, not just the police on their own. And from my perspective that should never be driven by a resourcing issue because that’s not the right reason to make the decision and it’s certainly not taking the issue seriously.”

Child abuse images viewed by ‘horrifying’ number of people Mattha Busby 24 October 2017 

A Balclutha man who shared child abuse images on a cellphone messaging app says he did so because of ''boredom and loneliness''.
The 22-year-old, whose name was permanently suppressed, appeared before the Dunedin District Court having pleaded guilty to four counts of distributing objectionable publications.
The defendant used the app ''KIK'' under the usernames ''horny'' and ''sheepy'' to send depraved photos of girls as young as 3 to other users.
He admitted sharing four images between July and August last year.
But when he was caught by police five months ago, he made a surprising disclosure.
The man said he had ''shared and traded, in his own estimation, hundreds of images involving explicit child pornography over previous months using mobile data which could not be traced back to him''.
Judge John Macdonald said, while he was able to take that into account, he could only sentence on the four specific instances.
Most of the abuse depicted in the images the defendant shared is too explicit to be described.
Defence counsel Brian Kilkelly stressed his client's IQ was in the ''borderline range'', significantly below that of a typical adolescent.
As a result, it had been suggested the man had limited insight.
''The defendant has displayed an apparent lack of appreciation of the deviancy of his behaviour,'' Probation assessed.
Mr Kilkelly said spending the last three months behind bars awaiting sentencing had certainly driven home the significance of his actions.
''The offending began to relieve boredom and loneliness following the break-up of a two-year relationship,'' he said.
''He has been able to function in the community and in terms of work but when it comes to his everyday life he's been operating in a relatively limited way.''
Judge Macdonald accepted the man had been living a ''perhaps sad life''.
The judge said it was unclear how many people had seen the objectionable images as a result of the defendant's actions but the harm to the victims was clear.
The man was jailed for 18 months and was given leave to apply for home detention should an appropriate address become available.
He was granted name suppression because of his cognitive challenges and to protect his family.

A Timmins court heard harrowing details of a man who created child pornography with his one-year-old daughter.
The 28-year-old Timmins resident pleaded guilty in the Ontario Superior Court of Justice in Timmins to four child pornography-related charges — possession, accessing, producing and making it available. He also pleaded guilty to touching a child for a sexual purpose.
Assistant Crown Attorney Rob Parsons told the court, computer forensic analysis revealed the accused communicated online with individuals who shared an interest in collecting child pornography. The court heard he sent digital photographs and videos of him and his daughter, both naked and depicting sexual acts.
One of the individuals he communicated with resided in Moore County, North Carolina, where police uncovered a video showing a man ejaculating on the face of an infant. Parsons said at the end of the video, the child is seen rubbing its eyes and crying.
Police in North Carolina notified the Royal Canadian Mounted Police of the video which they said had been obtained from a Canadian.
The accused and his daughter are the ones featured in that video, Parsons confirmed.
The Daily Press is not publishing the name of the perpetrator in this case as it would indirectly identify the victim, and there is a publication ban protecting the child’s name.
The court heard Timmins Police launched an investigation on Jan. 13, 2016 resulting in the accused being arrested.
Police executed a search warrant at the Timmins residence and seized numerous electronic devices including a cellular phone which, Parsons said, a quick look-through revealed a photo of the man’s daughter, with her head next to her father’s penis.
Computer forensic officers ultimately obtained from those electronic devices 3,675 photographic images and 102 videos which police deemed to be of “investigative” interest.
The accused has been in custody since the arrest.
Defence lawyer Ben Dawkins offered the court on Wednesday a tally of 641 days in pre-plea custody.
Despite the sexual abuse, the young victim still asks for her father, the girl’s mother revealed to the court.
“She misses him so greatly but luckily does not yet understand what has occurred,” the mom wrote in a victim-impact statement which Parsons read to the court.
“Anytime she cries, she calls for him and all I can say is, ‘sorry honey, your daddy is out of town.’”
The mom said has learned that pedophilia is a psychological “disease” and she expressed hope that the accused “will be able to get the help he needs to overcome it.”
She added, “I feel sorry for him as nothing is ever going to be truly stable for the rest of his life. Nor will he be able to have a proper relationship with his daughter. At least he will never have to hear her calling and crying out for him, to have him sooth away her pain or to see her push my hand away because all she wants is him. It breaks my heart that this has happened and these memories will never go away.”
Sentencing was adjourned to Nov. 6, as a tentative date.
