A self-confessed paedophile will admit to being sexually attracted to children as young as four in a Channel 4 documentary, but insists he has never committed a crime.

The Paedophile Next Door will feature 39-year-old Eddie outing himself on camera in order to ask for more help for people sexually attracted to children in a bid to stop them becoming criminals.

Eddie, who tells the programme that he is also attracted to adult women, says he has been attracted to young girls since he was in his 20s, but has never abused children and does not plan to.

‘People will probably say “Why isn’t this guy locked up? We should kill this guy, we should go and give him a good shoeing”,’ he tells documentary maker Steve Humphries on the programme, to be broadcast tomorrow night.

‘I, honest to God, won’t run away from you and if that is what you want to do to me, you come and do it, because all you are doing in that scenario is just keeping the status quo.

‘Going around abusing children is not acceptable, viewing images of child pornography is not acceptable, but people are just waiting for you to offend before they help you.

‘They are saying “Do what you want but if we catch you we are going to bang you up”, instead of saying perhaps “Listen, we can help you”.

‘But if you don’t have that help, (and) you don’t have that option to come forward and say “Look, I have got a problem, I need help”, what are we changing? We are changing nothing.’

The programme looks at so-called ‘virtuous paedophiles’ and suggests radical changes are needed to child protection that include treatment and therapy for those who come forward despite never having committed any sex offences.

‘Virtuous paedophiles’ is a term developed from a support group for men and women who admit to being paedophiles but claim not to act on their desires.

Viewers will also see Eddie meet Ian McFadyen, 49, who was abused by a schoolteacher as a young boy.

Eddie tells the documentary he realised he was a paedophile after using pornography, adding: ‘When I began to realise the implications of what I had been looking at, I began to really question myself and I was genuinely distressed and worried.’

He adds that this was at the time in 2000 when eight-year-old Sarah Payne was murdered by Roy Whiting and there was ‘hysteria that every paedophile is a rapist and everyone is making that jump’.

He tells the programme: ‘I thought I was a bad person. I thought somewhere along the line I’m going to do something.

‘At that time I honestly was just thinking more and more about suicide. I couldn’t escape it, it was never far from my mind.’

Channel 4 is not releasing any other details of Eddie’s identity, apart from saying he had a normal upbringing, was popular at school and was captain of the rugby team.

He does not have a family and is receiving treatment in Europe, the filmmakers said.

The documentary shows him writing a letter to his mother admitting he is a paedophile so she does not find out from watching.

Several experts in the documentary call for the UK to set up a similar scheme to Germany’s Prevention Project Dunkelfeld (PPD) which treats people who admit they are sexually-attracted to children to help them live safely in society.

They claim research shows that as many as one in 50 men could be sexually attracted to children to some degree and the only resource they have at the moment is other paedophiles, including those who have committed crimes, in online communities for minor attracted persons (MAPs).

Mr McFadyen was abused at Caldicott School in Farnham Royal, Buckinghamshire, in the 1970s and became a drug addict and child prostitute.

In the documentary he tells Eddie: ‘Eighteen years ago I was quite violent, I would probably have attempted to kill you.’

Speaking in London today, Mr McFadyen admitted that the documentary may not be popular with child sex abuse victims, who feel they do not get enough support themselves. But he said current practices are ‘antiquated’.

He said: ‘The only reason I agreed to get involved in this was that we can look at this as being potentially another option towards being proactive.

‘This is about stopping the abuse actually happening.

‘It is not a comfortable subject, I don’t want to sit with paedophiles, I don’t advocate for paedophiles, I feel wholly uncomfortable with them, but … the damage is done to me and my generation, what I don’t want is that to keep occurring because we won’t look at new ways and sit down with the offenders before they offend.’

Dr Sarah Goode, an academic who studies paedophilia, brought the film makers Mr Humphries and German co-director Rudolf Herzog, together with Eddie.

She told the documentary that currently the only message getting through to potential child sex offenders was that they were ‘monsters’ who faced a horrific time in prison when they were caught and jailed.

She told the programme: ‘That is the only message we are giving at the moment and that is not a deterrent, it doesn’t keep kids safe because it is not saying that person has any choice.

‘If we change that message and if we say to this person OK you are a paedophile but you are also a moral person who can make moral choices and you can choose never to break the law, never to offend, you can choose to keep children safe.’

Speaking today she argued that paedophilia was a ‘public health issue’ that should be looked at ‘maturely’ and addressed in the same way as campaigns to cut drink driving or smoking.

Jon Brown, the NSPCC’s head of strategy and development, added that there are many grades of attraction to children, saying: ‘There are going to be men out there … who have some degree of sexual interest in children but are going to be able to manage it.

‘There are sufficient inhibitors in place for them to know what they have got to lose, that it is not that strong and they can maintain a consenting adult relationship. They will probably be OK and not go on and offend.

‘But the problem at the moment and over the last decade is the hugely increased availability of child abuse imagery online.

‘That is a problem because that can fuel and stoke interest that for some people perhaps was not that great in the first place.’

He added that the country as a whole needed to become a lot better at talking about sex.

Paedophile continued working at school despite admitting ‘sexual attraction to young boys’

Published November 10, 2014 by misty534


Lewis Nainby was told to leave a junior football club in Newcastle, where he worked as a coach, after two boys reported being abused during a trip in the mid-1980s

A sports coach who abused children continued working at a school – despite admitting his attraction to young boys.

Self-confessed paedophile Lewis Nainby was told to leave a local junior football club, where he worked as a coach, after two boys reported being abused during a trip in the mid-1980s.

Newcastle Crown Court heard Nianby, who was a sports coach at Seaton Burn High, Newcastle, then referred himself to a psychiatrist for help.

He admitted the assaults which took place in the 1980s, reports the Newcastle Chronicle.

During the trip, Nainby had awoken a teenage boy while touching his genitals, a Judge was told.

The boy gathered his belongings and ran from the room reporting the incident to a member of club staff.

After the trip, parents were informed and Nainby was asked to leave the club.

However, despite parents and Seaton Burn High being aware ofallegations facing Nainby at the time, no criminal complaint was made.

After retiring, Nainby worked as a volunteer football coach and exam invigilator on a casual basis at the school.

A spokesman for Seaton Burn College said: “On the day the allegations were made he was immediately suspended by school principal Alison Shaw and he has not been in the school since or had any contact with the pupils.”

He pleaded guilty to four counts of sexual assault in Newcastle Crown Court.

Nainby, of Southward, Seaton Sluice, had abused two boys on a number of occasions asking them if they would like to sit on his knee and drive his car.

Sue Hirst, prosecuting, told the court Nainby’s victims waited almost 30 years to speak out about their concerns after they learned he was still coaching youngsters in May 2013.

Katherine Dunn, representing Nainby, told the court he had not reoffended since his psychiatric treatment in 1985 and had dedicated his life to charity work, working with a hospice in the North East.

Judge Deborah Sherwin, passing sentence, said: “You had been seen in the showers wrapped in a towel but it’s not clear to me whether any adults were made aware at that stage of your actions.

“We’ve seen reference to your medical records, in October 1985 you sought help and we were also told you have told those about you of the allegations, and stopped being a football coach at the time but you continued to be employed by the school until your retirement.”

Nainby was handed a two year jail sentence, suspended for 18 months, and ordered to sign the sex offenders register.

He will also have to take part in the sex offenders treatment programme.

Aberdeen paedophile communicted with girl via sign language

Published November 7, 2014 by misty534


An Aberdeen paedophile was back behind bars last night after he admitted communicating sexually with a 14-year-old girl – via sign language.

Serial offender Brian Morrison, whose record of sexual offences against children dates back to 1984, appeared at Aberdeen Sheriff Court yesterday and admitted being in breach of a sexual offences prevention order, imposed four years ago.

The order, Morrison’s third, forbids him from approaching, contacting or communicating with children.

However, the 53-year-old admitted breaking those conditions by using sign language to send a sexual message to his latest victim as she was standing at her flat window and he was seated in his car outside.

Fiscal depute Gavin Letford told the court Morrison had also been facing two other charges which alleged he had breached his SOPO, however his not guilty pleas to those were accepted by the Crown.

He said: “The accused is a registered sex offender who was made subject to a sexual offences prevention order on September 22, 2010. One of the conditions is that he is prohibited from having contact with children under-17 unless it is unavoidable.”

He said that at the time of the latest offence, which was between May and June this year, the school girl had been at her home address in Aberdeen when Morrison pulled his car up outside.

Mr Letford said the girl waved to Morrison from her window and in response he used his hands to convey a sexual gesture.

Mr Letford said the girl understood what he was trying to sign to her and his actions made her feel “mortified and shocked”.

Representing the repeat offender, solicitor Paul Barnett said that on the day of the offence Morrison had been dropping of his wife of 14-years, who remains supportive of him despite his criminal offending.

He said his client accepted he was in breach of the order, but had not gone out of his way to offend and had made no attempt to approach the girl.

Sentencing Morrison, a prisoner at HMP Grampian, to 15 months in custody, Sheriff William Summers said he had to take into account that Morrison had a “significant history” of sexual offending and that the order was in place in order to “protect potential victims from further abuse”.

Ex-Tory branch chairman Angus Burgoyne of Folkestone and Hythe Conservative Association guilty of child sex attacks

Published September 18, 2014 by misty534

Screen Shot 2014-09-19 at 00.04.55

A former branch chairman for the Folkestone and Hythe Conservative Association hid a “dark secret” – he was a sick paedophile, it has been revealed.

Angus Burgoyne posed online as ‘James Beevers’ to exchange perverted child sex fantasies and then downloaded vile images of children.

Now the 41-year-old father-of-two is facing a lengthy period behind bars after a jury has convicted him of three sex attacks on children.

Burgoyne, who is pictured standing next to MP Damian Collins at a branch event, formerly lived in New Road, Elham, but has since grown a beard and moved to Melbury Osmond in Dorset.

Prosecutor Simon Taylor had told the jury that Burgoyne was “a brazen liar” and a pervert who molested children before being arrested and questioned in 2012.

Police officers seized his computer and a forensic examination revealed he had downloaded more than 1,500 images of children.

The Canterbury Crown Court jury heard how four of the images depicted children involved in sadism and many others were of children and adults involved in sex.

The prosecutor said the warped Burgoyne had also created another online profile called ‘Matthew Keeping’ in August 2012.

Burgoyne, who admitted eight downloading and distributing image charges but denied the sex assaults, claimed his child victims had lied.

He told police: “It didn’t happen. It really… I mean… I don’t… to think I’d do something like that… it makes me feel sick and I just really don’t know what to say to be perfectly frank.”

Mr Taylor told the jury: “She (one of the child victims) struck lucky, you may think. She would never have known that the defendant had a collection of child pornography on his computer – still less the victim would have realised that the police would seize his computer during the course of their investigation.”

He added that if the victim had lied it would have been to frame Burgoyne for sex offences.

Mr Taylor added: “So, for the defendant to be innocent, this must have been a pure shot in the dark by the victim.

“Pure coincidence, pure fortune that the person she decided to frame just happened to have a perverted interest in children, a dark secret that she could never have known about.”

The jury believed the children and convicted Burgoyne on all three sex assaults.

Judge Heather Norton remanded him in custody for the preparation of reports and he will be sentenced next month.

Paedophile jailed for four years

Published August 9, 2013 by misty534

A PAEDOPHILE who sexually assaulted a 15-year-old girl has been jailed for four years.

William John Jones’ offending against the girl was brought to the attention of the police after she confided in her dad.

Jones, 41, of Minffordd, Llanfair Caereinion, indulged in sexual intercourse with the girl.

“The girl was shocked and she chose not to tell anyone,” said Oliver King, prosecuting.

“But she then told her father what happened and he took her to the police station in Newtown.

“At first Jones told police that the girl had climbed on him. He also claimed that he thought she was 16-years-old, but this could not be true as he would have known that she’d recently celebrated her 15th birthday.”

Jones admitted two charges of sexual activity with a child, which involved touching her intimately over her clothes and having sexual intercourse with her.

Paul Smith, defending, said: “The defendant has demonstrated his remorse and is disgusted with himself.

“Throughout interviews he has acknowledged what happened and that he was wrong and to blame.”

But Judge Philip Hughes slammed the jailed paedophile, saying: “You knew she was 15 and the effect on her is something we cannot tell at this stage.

“From her witness statement she is lacking in confidence and is nervous because of what you did, and you did this while you were drinking and initially tried blaming the young victim for encouraging you.”

Jones was jailed for four years and was placed on the sex offender’s register indefinitely.

He was also made the subject of an order preventing contact with children except under certain conditions.

Under-fire judge to face paedophile in court

Published August 9, 2013 by misty534

A judge at the centre of a storm in the UK over inappropriate comments made about a teenage sex attack victim is to face the abuser again in court.

Judge Nigel Peters QC is being investigated by the judicial watchdog over remarks made during the sentencing of paedophile Neil Wilson, who admitted engaging in sexual activity with the 13-year-old girl.

Wilson, 41, who walked free from court with a suspended sentence, is to appear before Judge Peters via videolink at Snaresbrook Crown Court on Monday to deal with “an administrative matter” in relation to his sentence.

A row broke out earlier this week when it emerged prosecuting barrister Robert Colover labelled the young girl “predatory” and “sexually experienced” and Judge Peters said he accounted for the way the girl looked and behaved when he sentenced Wilson.

Mr Colover has been suspended from prosecuting sexual offence cases pending a review by the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS), while Judge Peters’ comments are to be investigated by the Office for Judicial Complaints.

Paedophile Anwar Ismail jailed due to testimony from beyond grave from victim who took his own life

Published August 9, 2013 by misty534

Victim: Teenager Aaron Leafe

In a 93-minute police interview played out in court, the teenager told officers how he was groomed from age 12

A paedophile who sexually assaulted a boy of 15 was jailed for 18 years yesterday after his victim gave evidence from beyond the grave.

Vulnerable Aaron Leafe killed himself six weeks after reporting Anwar Ismail, 31, who worked at a children’s home where the boy lived.

In a 93-minute police interview played out in court, the teenager told officers how he was groomed from age 12.

On the tape Aaron said: “Anwar always pressured me into having sex with him.

“I didn’t want to do it. He gave me money. He got me a flat.

“He bought me cigarettes and cannabis. I was scared. I just did what I was told.”

His suicide note in 2010 said he could not get over the abuse.

At Leicester crown court Ismail, of Spinney Hills in the city, was convicted of seven counts of sexual assault.

Aaron’s mum said: “Justice has been done for Aaron but it’s bittersweet – because he’s not here to see it.”

Paedophile used Facebook to offer 15-year-olds money for sexual favours

Published August 6, 2013 by misty534

Paul Anthony Williams

He is jailed for 40 months and must register as a sex offender for the rest of his life

A paedophile made explicit suggestions and offered drugs and money in return for sexual favours after contacting two 15-year-old girls on Facebook, a court heard.

Paul Anthony Williams, 36, of no fixed address, was jailed for 40 months at Caernarfon crown court and must register as a sex offender for life. A court order restricts his internet use and contact with girls.

Williams admitted sexual grooming and inciting a girl to engage in sexual activity. Police were alerted after the mother of one of the teenagers, of Prestatyn and Denbigh, saw Facebook messages from Williams.

Defence counsel Simon Mintz said Williams’s record was “unappealing” but his last sex offence was a decade ago. Although there was “sex talk” with the girls, no sexual assaults actually took place.

Prosecutor Caroline Harris said Williams’s history included a 1996 conviction for indecent assault on a girl of six, and sexual intercourse with underage girls.

Recorder Keith Bush said Williams was “extremely dangerous” to young girls. He had persistently contacted one of his latest victims to meet up for sexual purposes.

The judge said “serious distress” had been caused. “Mercifully, matters didn’t proceed as far as any physical meeting between you and the young girls,” he added.

“It’s behaviour which I’m sad to say seems to be part of your personality.”

Anger as judge spares paedophile jail because his 13-year-old female victim was ‘predatory’

Published August 6, 2013 by misty534

The decision to allow a paedophile to walk free after his 13-year-old victim was described as a sexual predator has been condemned as ‘plain wrong’.

Neil Wilson, 41, lured the unnamed teenager to his Romford home where he watched her strip out of her school uniform before she performed a sex act on him.

She eventually told a friend about the abuse who in turn informed the police.

During a search of Wilson’s home officers also uncovered a stash of images and videos depicting child abuse and bestiality.

He admitted a string of charges but was handed a suspended sentence at Snaresbrook crown court.

But during his hearing, prosecutor Robert Colover told the judge: ‘The girl is predatory in all her actions and she is sexually experienced.

‘She appeared to look around 14 or 15 and had the mental age of a 14 or 15 year old despite being younger than that.

‘There was sexual activity but it was not of Mr Wilson’s doing, you might say it was forced upon him despite being older and stronger than her.’

Passing sentence, Judge Nigel Peters said ‘you have come as close to prison as is imaginable’ but noted ‘these facts the girl was predatory and was egging you on’.

Barnardo’s deputy director of strategy Alison Worsley condemned the sentence and description of the victim made in court.

‘Children can never truly consent to their own abuse,’ she said.

‘It is plain wrong to imply in any way that the experiences of sexually exploited children are something they bring on themselves.

‘It is difficult to imagine the torment experienced by the vulnerable victims of crimes such as these.

‘Many turn in on themselves and have feelings of shame and even self-loathing on top of the psychological scars inflicted by the abuser.

‘It takes immense bravery for these young people to relive their ordeal in a court of law and we must not forget that it is the abuser who is guilty and not the victim.’

Mark Harris, 39, had sex with girl aged 13

Published August 5, 2013 by misty534

A PAEDOPHILE who exploited the affection of a frightened 12-year-old girl has been jailed for four years and eight months.

Mark Andrew Harris, 39, ignored an official police warning to stay away from the girl after her mother confronted him over their friendship, said Sarah Mallett, prosecuting. He was more than three times the girl’s age.

Within days of her turning 13, he had sex with her and continued to have a sexual relationship with her for months, until the mother found his texts on the girl’s mobile phone.

In her diary, the girl wrote: “I am truly and utterly in love with him.”

Harris claimed to police he had been trying to help and guide the girl, whom the court heard had a troubled past and went on to have relationships with other men.

Mrs Mallett said: “Her involvement with this defendant began a process of turning a frightened child into a very sexualised child.”

The Recorder of York, Judge Stephen Ashurst, told Harris: “What you did and the activities you engaged in with (the girl) were done by you with your eyes fully open to the situation. You exploited the affection that she was displaying towards you.”

He said: “There is only one outcome in this case. You must go to prison.”

Harris, 39, of Huntington Road, York, pleaded guilty to two charges of sexual activity with a girl.

In addition to the jail term of four years and eight months, he was placed on the sex offenders’ register, made subject to a sexual offences prevention order banning him from all contact with the girl and any unsupervised contact with any girl under 16, and disqualified from working with children, all for life.

His solicitor, Alaistair Bateman, said: “He is not a danger to young girls. This is an isolated case.”

Harris had not groomed the girl but had wanted to support her, he said. He was an isolated man whose life had been blighted by his schizophrenia and had been sectioned under the Mental Health Act for much of his adult life.
