Wirral paedophile predator jailed for life

A paedophile predator who sexually abused eight young girls over a 20-year period, has been put behind bars for life.

54-year-old Phillip Taylor, befriended the parents of his victims, the youngest only three years old, so they trusted him to look after their offspring.

Liverpool Crown Court heard that sadly their trust was misplaced and while alone with the children he bathed them, touched their naked bodies, and even filmed himself abusing them.

Taylor, a married father-of-two, was caught out after one of his young victims innocently told her father that the way he was rubbing cream into her body was not the way “Philly” did it before demonstrating what he had done to her.

The court was told that complaints had been made about Taylor in 2000 but he denied the allegations made by two teenagers and the Crown Prosecution Service decided not to prosecute.

When police raided his home on Bratan Road, Birkenhead, after learning of the new allegations they found video clips on a memory stick of him actually abusing his victims, along with 2,000 of child abuse images, said John Gibson, prosecuting.

Taylor, a painter and decorator, pleaded guilty to a total of 58 offences involving sexual assaults and possessing and making indecent images of children.

The court heard that the most serious offences involved children aged three, four and five and the eldest victim was only 13.

Judge Stephen Everett told him, “You were outwardly a picture of respectability, a man who had never been in trouble before.

“A picture of respectability and believability and somebody to be trusted. You grossly abused that trust for your own deviant sexual pleasure.

“I have little doubt you have no inkling at all as to the trauma you have caused those families.

“You are in my judgement cold and calculating.

“You are paedophilic predator who groomed not just the girls but also their parents to trust you to look after their children which allowed you abuse those little girls.

“I have little doubt if you had not been caught you would have been willing to continue this despicable behaviour for many, many years.

“There is little doubt in my mind and my judgement from all I have heard and seen is that you will remain a dangerous offender for many, many, many years to come.

“It may be you will always remain a dangerous offender until the end of your life.”

He jailed Taylor for life and told him he must serve a minimum of seven-and-a-half years before he could be considered for parole.

But the judge warned him that in reality he would be locked up for a lot longer than that.

“I would not be surprised to see you in prison for the rest of your life but that will be a matter between you and the parole board,” he said.

Detective Cons Mike Gallagher, from Merseyside Police Child Protection Unit, said: “He thought he could get away with it so did it time and time again, causing untold sadness and fear in his victims.

“His successful prosecution shows that he did not get away with it in the end and is now facing much of the rest of his life behind bars.”

The Facebook paedophile case is why I’ll ban computers from my children’s bedrooms

Published July 16, 2013 by misty534

Children should not be left alone in their bedroom with a computer for hours on end, says Laura Perrins, or you may as well be leaving them in a room full of paedophiles – especially after the latest Facebook paedophile case.





If ever a parent needed convincing as to why children and teenagers should not have a computer in their bedroom the case of Callum Evans is exhibit number one. Mr Evans was caught two years ago trying to use Facebook to contact young boys to molest them and then he returned to the site to try and intice teenagers to send him pornographic photos of themselves.

Mr Evans appeared before Judge Hume Jones in 2011 after using Facebook to encourage boys to send naked photos of themselves. Mr Evans received a community order. He was not banned from using Facebook as the Judge said this would deprive him of the ‘social traffic’ his peers took for granted. It seems that the Judge was more concerned with elevating Mr Evans’ access to Facebook to the status of a human right, than protecting other children and teenagers from being sexually groomed. Sure enough, weeks after being convicted, Evans created a new alias on Facebook, which he used to pose as a teenage girl to convince other teenagers to send him pornographic photos of themselves.

Yesterday Evans, 21, came before the same Judge and admitted 17 charges of inciting a child to engage in pornography and four counts of inciting a child to engage in a sexual act. Is he holding up the wall of a cell somewhere after such a blatant breach of trust placed in him by the Judge? Well, no. Judge Hume Jones again did not impose a custodial sentence and again did not ban him from using Facebook as this would be “particularly excessive”. He would lose his ‘social traffic’ don’t you remember?

Patrick Mason, mitigating, said Evans had lost his chance of going to university because of his crime and had responded well to treatment. He said: “In essence, there is a single pattern of behaviour, committed for two years between the age of 18 and 20, and due in part to the somewhat addictive nature of the internet. It has now stopped because of the treatment programme he has been on. He is a much-changed young man.”

When I explain to friends that I intend to always have computers in the family room downstairs and never in the children’s bedroom, they used to think this was harsh. But then they did not previously represent someone, as I did during my days as a barrister, who was charged with holding 5,000 indecent images of children on his computer – and he was only discovered because he was cultivating a cannabis farm in his living room.

Predatory paedophile fails to cut sentence

Published July 16, 2013 by misty534

A “PREDATORY” paedophile jailed for the horrendous abuse of a ten-year-old girl during the 1980s – his third conviction for child sex offences – has failed to win a cut in his sentence.

Sick Sandy Cosburn, aged 59, left his victim profoundly affected for years after holding down her dungarees and molesting her, having cornered her in a toilet.

The sex offender was handed 43 months’ imprisonment after he admitted indecent assault after the start of his trial at Plymouth Crown Court in May last year.

Three top judges at London’s Appeal Court have now rejected a sentence challenge by Cosburn, saying his punishment had to reflect “the harm done to his victim”.

Mr Justice Simon said Cosburn carried out the attack almost three decades ago, while in his twenties, having lured the girl and other children to his Devonport home on the pretense of showing them his animals.

The girl went to the bathroom and removed her dungarees to go to the toilet when she noticed there was no lock on the door.

“Within a few seconds she could see through the frosted glass plate that someone was standing behind the door. She saw the handle start to move,” the appeal judge added.

Cosburn molested her for several minutes and then thanked her and called her a “good girl”.

The victim kept the abuse a secret for years but eventually told police in 2011.

“One does not have to imagine the effect of this assault on the victim,” the appeal judge said. “She has described in eloquent terms the long-term effect it has had on her.”

Cosburn, whose address was given as Kitter Drive, Staddiscombe, at an earlier court appearance, previously served two months for a similar assault on a young girl after appearing at the magistrates’ court in 1986. In 2005, he admitted sexually assaulting yet another girl in the 1980s and was jailed for three years.

Jailing him last year, Judge Francis Gilbert QC said Cosburn could have admitted the latest offence when receiving either of his previous sentences but chose to keep it quiet.

On appeal, Jo Martin, for Cosburn, today argued the sentence failed to reflect that this assault was part of an ongoing course of offending in the 1980s, for which he had already been substantially punished.

But Mr Justice Simon, sitting with Lady Justice Rafferty and Mrs Justice Carr, said Cosburn had, at the first sentencing hearing, unjustly received credit for his good character when he was, in fact, a “practising, predatory paedophile”.

He concluded: “Here, the sentencing judge plainly had in mind the sentences for the earlier offending.

“The issue before the court is whether the sentence of 43 months was manifestly excessive in light of the earlier sentences.

“Despite the eloquent submissions of Ms Martin, our view is that it was not. Indeed, any significant reduction would not take a full account of the culpability of Cosburn and the harm that was done to his victim.

“Accordingly, the appeal is dismissed.”

Saffron Walden paedophile jailed for further crimes

Published July 15, 2013 by misty534


A predator who had already been convicted for child sex offences has returned to jail after offending again.

Paul Taylor, 24, of Maynards Lane, Little Sampford, was jailed at Chelmsford Crown Court on Friday, July 12, for breaching a Sexual Offences Prevention Order (SOPO) and engaging in sexual activity with a child.

Taylor, who committed the offences between July and August of last year, was the subject of a SOPO after previously being convicted for engaging in sexual activity with a child.

DC Mark Harrington, investigating officer, said that the 24-year-old ignored the terms and conditions imposed on him by the order.

He said: “Taylor is a prolific offender and a predatory individual when it comes to young teenage girls.

“The only logical sentence was a significant term in prison. Hopefully while in prison he will have every opportunity to engage in a programme of rehabilitation.”

Taylor was given one year for breaching his order, and a further three years for two counts of sexual activity with a child.

He has also been given a lifetime SOPO with enhanced conditions.

Ex-scout leader David Hopkins shared child images with paedophile James Peck

Published June 25, 2013 by misty534



A predatory paedophile and a former Cub Scout master shared sickening images of child abuse, a court heard.
James Peck, who was once convicted of using public library computers to set up a child porn website, used references such as “14 and really cute”, “alias 11 years old” and “10-year-old boy and 15” for the photographs found on a phone, DVD disks and memory sticks.
Maidstone Crown Court heard the phone was one of two found among Peck’s belongings at the former Essex home he had shared with another sex offender he met while in prison, and at an address in Bright Road, Chatham.
Three disks and two memory sticks, which had been hidden in a pair of binoculars and a magnifying glass, were also discovered at the sheltered housing home of one-time Hawkinge Scout leader David Hopkins.
The 75-year-old, who was jailed for 10 years in 2003 for 25 sexual offences against young boys, later told police he was “quite sickened” by the images Peck had downloaded in his presence.
Hopkins, of St Anne’s Court, Maidstone, admitted four offences of possessing indecent images between April and May last year.
Peck, 32, of Queenborough Road, Sheerness, admitted six offences of possessing indecent photographs of children and three breaches of a sexual offences prevention order, namely using or having equipment capable of accessing the Internet.
Peck, who also admitted two offences of fraud in April last year, was jailed for a total of 21 months. Hopkins was given eight months behind bars suspended for two years.
Passing sentence Judge Martin Joy said the two men had “different involvement” in the offences, with different records of offending.
But he added that although the probation report on Peck was “somewhat disturbing” in light of his sexual obession with young children, it did not fulfil strict criteria which would enable him to brand Peck dangerous in the legal sense and impose an indeterminate sentence for public protection.
This was despite the report’s author stating that Peck posed a significant risk.
“The report author is extremely realistic and indeed of the view that you are a predatory paedophile,” said Judge Joy.
“The author pulls no punches and expresses the clear view that you are a very high risk of harm to male children.”
As part of his sentence Hopkins must attend the Thames Valley sex offender treatment programme.
Both men were made subject to sexual offences prevention orders and must sign on the sex offender register.
Prosecutor Andrew Forsyth told the court the images were both stills and movie clips and covered all levels of seriousness.
They featured a boy as young as three, pre-pubescent boys performing various sex acts and a teenage boy being abused by a male adult.
Peck had a total of 367 and Hopkins had 156.
Peck was jailed in 2004 for three years, with an extended licence period of five years, for making, distributing and inciting the distribution of indecent images.
He had used public library computers in Tunbridge Wells, Rochester, Chatham and Maidstone to set up his own website inviting people to upload images of naked, young boys with the restriction that they not appear older than 14.
Hopkins was previously jailed for the systematic abuse of dozens of young boys over a period of almost 30 years.
In 2003 Maidstone Crown Court heard he kept diaries of what was described as his “debauchery and corruption”, with details such as victims’ names, how often they were abused, locations and positions.
One boy was said to have been abused almost 300 times over six years.
Hopkins, then of Skeete Road, Lyminge, admitted 20 charges of indecent assault between 1961 and 1989, four of taking indecent photographs and one serious sex offence.

A PREDATORY paedophile” from Crayford who groomed a “vulnerable” 14-year-old girl on Facebook has been locked up.

The MPS is dedicated to protecting the public from sexual predators and encourage victims to come forward.”

Predatory paedophile’s ‘twisted and depraved’ plot to ‘breed’ a daughter so he could sexually abuse her

Predatory: Paedophile Robin Malka, pictured, faces jail after plotting to father a daughter so he could sexually abuse her

  • Robin Malka, 38, hatched a plan to father his own victims
  • He said he believed having sex with babies was ‘natural and beautiful’ 
  • Also sent sickening images of infants being molested and raped


A predatory paedophile plotted to ‘breed’ a daughter he could sexually abuse, a court heard today.

Robin Malka, 38, hatched a ‘twisted and depraved’ plan to father his own victims and feed his sexual obsession with children. 

French-born Malka said he believed having sex with babies was ‘natural and beautiful’ and sent sickening images of infants being molested and raped. 

Malka used the online username ‘dom4padeomom’ while he chatted with undercover officers ‘Stevie’ and ‘Craig’ about abusing two girls aged three and five. 

He was also a member of sickening internet groups including ‘family fun incest’ and ‘all about incest’.

In addition to arranging a child sex offence in November last year, Malka also admitted possessing 721 indecent images, including pictures and movies at level five – the most serious category which includes images of sadism and bestiality.

The pervert further admitted distributing more than 30 films and photos. He is now facing a lengthy jail term.

Malka was snared by undercover cops at Mile End Tube station in east London on November 13 last year, after revealing his vile intentions in an online chatroom, Southwark Crown Court heard.

He was previously jailed for a year in April 2006 with 10 years probation at Miami Circuit Court in the US for possessing indecent images.

Prosecutor Peter Zinner told the court: ‘His profile disclosed a depraved and twisted plan to meet with a female and breed his own victims for sexual abuse.


‘It is clear from what police established through e-chat conversations that he is a real threat to children.

‘The content was sexually explicit and leaves one in no doubt that Mr Malka was not only sexually interested in children but that he had abused a child before.

‘Stevie, having realised this was a predatory, determined and possibly active paedophile, suggested she could speak with a friend, Craig, who purported to have two children aged three and five.’

Malka talked to ‘Craig’ about raping the two girls in a conversation on November 6 last year, Mr Zinner said.

The following day, he sent Stevie 28 sickening images of babies and very young children being raped.

‘He said how he would love to try just about anything with Craig’s children and spoke with Stevie about having a baby girl and specific sexual positions while have sex that will give you more chance of having a baby girl. 

‘He went on to say having sexual relationships with babies and children was a natural and beautiful thing.’

Charles Shelton, defending Malka, said he was ‘troubled’ individual who had a thorny relationship with his mother. 

‘This was the very unpleasant blurring of fantasy and reality and some doubt must be attached to whether further steps would have been taken.’

Malka of Clapham, southwest London, admitted arranging a child sex offence, possessing indecent images of children and ten counts of distributing indecent images of children.
