66 Australians are among nearly 400 people arrested after Canadian authorities smashed what they say is one of the worst child sex abuse rings they’ve seen.
Canadian police say their investigation into a multi-million-dollar child sex abuse video website has led to the arrests of nearly 350 people internationally, including teachers, police officers, doctors and priests.
A total of 386 victims of the ring were rescued from harm worldwide, including six in Australia – five in Western Australia, and one in the ACT. The Australian suspects in the operation are aged between 25 and 72 and have been charged with a range of offences including accessing, possessing, producing and distributing online child exploitation material.
The Australian arrests included a Catholic priest, a former priest and two teachers, all from New South Wales. But Queensland is the state with the largest number of suspects, with 33 people facing charges :: Read the full article »»»»

A South Australian computer technician who downloaded child pornography and frequented internet chatrooms in order to fulfil his impaired sexual fantasies about toddlers has been sentenced to 3 years in prison. 38 year old Steven John Bolbot, pleaded guilty to an aggravated count of possessing child pornography as well as two counts of producing child pornography.
The Adelaide District Court heard that South Australia Police officers searched Bolbot’s home in February 2012, during the search they found Bolbot using an internet chatroom, they also discovered 2,280 chat logs – of Bolbot role-playing and grooming – and found 246 images of child pornography on hard drives in his possession.
The court heard Bolbot’s social isolation and internet addiction led him to use chatrooms to explore his sexual fantasies about young children. It heard Bolbot was employed as a computer technician in 2009, He was however sacked as a result of the criminal charges.
Several researchers have reported correlations between paedophilia and certain psychological characteristics, such as low self-esteem and poor social skills. While we’ve spent quite a large amount of time outing paedophile behaviour – Paedophilia – there is a gathering body of evidence that describes this abominable behaviour as an illness. Cohen et al – 2002 – in studying ‘Personality Impairment in Male Paedophiles‘ outlines a view of paedophiles as having impaired interpersonal functioning, elevated passive-aggressiveness, as well as an impaired self-concept. According to the authors, pathologic personality traits in paedophiles lend support to a hypothesis that such pathology is related to both motivation for and failure to inhibit paedophilia behaviour :: Read the full article »»»»

Our distaste for child abuse of any form has been well penned on these pages, it now seems that the interweb is catching up! Australia’s first public sex offenders register will go online later today, publishing the names and faces of known child sex offenders in Western Australia.
The names and faces of about 50 paedophiles will be published on the State Government website, which is being set up in fulfilment of a 2008 election pledge.
The launch is being closely watched by other states, but there are concerns it will prompt vigilantism and cases of mistaken identity.
The website will provide information on some of the state’s most dangerous and repeat child sex offenders, including their photos, names and the suburbs in which they live, although it will not give out specific addresses :: Read the full article »»»»

There are more than just a few things wrong with this post, firstly – clearly – the nature of it is pretty off-putting, secondly, whats with all the paedaphiles in Adelaide? and thirdly, did this guy really say that?
Torsten Heggblum has been jailed for just 18 months for sharing child pornography online, despite arguing he was working to try help authorities stamp out child abuse. Heggblum, 46, admitted two child pornography charges in the Adelaide District Court.
Heggblum will be eligible to seek release from custody after serving 9 of his 18 month sentence.
Heggblum was among 11 Australian men charged in June last year by Australian Federal Police for exchanging images and videos of sexual abuse of children as young as five on an internet site. Police said the material included scenes of bondage, torture and rape.
Heggblum brazenly told the court he was motivated to download 1.3 million images and 11,000 videos found on his computers because he wanted to help authorities detect laboratories where children were being exploited. Judge Michael Boylan said Heggblum’s story was bizarre and jailed him.

Paedophile Andrew Lanxon Whitford has been jailed for just two years and nine months after being convicted of the distribution and possession of more than 30,000 items of child pornography.
A South Australian court was told that an undercover police officer made contact with Whitford through a P2P website the paedophile used to distribute his illegal material, soon after contact the police officer received child pornography material.
Adelaide District Court Judge Wayne Chivell, was told that Andrew Lanxon Whitford, 60, was arrested after police received a tip-off that Whitford was using a P2P web site to distribute his illegal material. The court was told Adelaide police seized his computer equipment and found an estimated 30,000 images and videos. Whitford pleaded guilty to aggravated disseminating and possessing child pornography.
In handing down his sentence, Judge Chivell said that he couldn’t understand how anyone could derive pleasure from such material.
“How any person can derive pleasure from viewing this material is beyond me,” Judge Chivell said. “Some of the child pornography material is of the worst kind. The offending was at the serious end of the spectrum. The offending occurred over a period of months and you did not cease voluntarily.”

Remorseless South Australian paedophile Robert Edwin Collins, has described his crimes as “just a bit of fun” Collins has been jailed for at least six years.
Robert Edwin Collins, 61, was found guilty by an Adelaide jury of persistent sexual exploitation of a young girl in the 1980s. The District Court heard he constantly abused his victim throughout her childhood, the abuse started when she was just six years old.
The morbidly-obese man, who is confined to a wheelchair, initially argued he was too sick for jail. The paedophiles lawyer ordered medical reports to help clarify whether Collins could get appropriate care from Correctional Services and whether prison authorities could cope with him.
Judge Michael Boylan said it was clear the man’s needs could be met even though prison staff would have problems.
Judge Boylan said Collins had shown no remorse. “When the victim challenged you many years later saying you were wrong for what you did … you replied ‘It was just a bit of fun’,” Judge Boylan said. “Your answer to her on that occasion sums up the way you treated her, as a toy to be played with at your whim. It was extremely serious offending, it was prolonged and a gross breach of trust.” :: Read the full article »»»»
