Child porn man unmasked

Published July 22, 2013 by JS2

A SEX offender who tried to hide behind a “super-injunction” can today be unmasked after a judge refused to make a gagging order.

David Redbond – who was caught with child pornography and images of bestiality – wanted to remain anonymous and to be treated differently from all other defendants.

But a judge at Grimsby Crown Court ruled that it would be an affront to the idea of open justice to treat Redbond differently from everybody else.

Redbond, 65, of Chester Place, Cleethorpes, had successfully obtained a gagging order from Grimsby magistrates.

His solicitor, Roy Foreman, had claimed that day that Redbond should not be named, apparently because of a supposed need to protect his relatives.

But recorder Euan Duff strongly criticised the move and told the higher court: “It’s a complete mystery why this defendant should not be identified.”

He agreed with a Grimsby Telegraph application that Redbond should not be allowed to hide behind a cloak of anonymity.

“The starting point in courts is that we have open justice and proper reporting of all matters that can be reported,” said recorder Duff.

“It’s fundamental to open justice. It’s a matter of public importance.”

It could be “counter-productive” to make such gagging applications because “it attracts more attention”.

The Telegraph was supported by prosecutor Jeremy Evans who said: “This is the equivalent of a super-injunction and it’s miraculous how he has managed to get anonymity in the magistrates’ court.”

It appeared that Redbond wanted anonymity because of his “name itself” and because it “stands out”.

He added: “That’s no reason. It forms no grounds. This case is no different from anybody else. The starting point is open justice and justice must be seen to be done.”

Dozens of pictures of Cardiff schoolchildren found on paedophile’s computer

A paedophile was exposed after a doctor reported what he had told her to the police and a work colleague saw an image on his phone

A paedophile had dozens of pictures of children apparently taken outside a Cardiff school on his computer, a court has heard.

Gareth Martin Jordan was exposed after a doctor reported what he had told her to the police.

When police raided his house, they found pornographic photos and movies of young children from levels one to four, with level five being the most serious.

There were also 46 pictures of children walking to school in Cardiff.

In a drawer they found children’s clothing and underwear that he had bought to “replicate” his fantasies.

In June, Jordan, 55, was sentenced to a three-year community order and ordered to complete a sex offender programme after admitting a total of 26 counts relating to indecent images of children.

Police raided his home, at East Road, Tylorstown, Rhondda, twice.

The first time was when a work colleague at Leckwith Retail Park in Cardiff spotted Jordan in the canteen looking at a photograph of a young Asian girl, aged around 12, in an erotic pose on October 18.

He saw him again doing the same thing two days later and decided to report the matter to the police on October 22.

That day police searched Jordan’s home and found a number of images and movies.

Prosecutor Nicola Harris told Merthyr Crown Court there was also a DVD of a beauty pageant at a “nudist or naturist camp” focussing on naked female participants.

Jordan’s home was searched for a second time when Dr Ruth Bagshaw approached police with concerns over Jordan.

“Her duties under the Children Act overrode patient confidentiality,” said Ms Harris.

The court heard he had admitted that he watched girls walk past, had driven to certain locations where he had pleasured himself, and had also followed one girl.

In all, police found 844 static images between levels one and three and 62 movie files between levels one and four.

Magistrates had committed Jordan to the crown court for sentencing after he admitted 14 counts of making and 12 of possessing indecent images of a child.

Ordered to sign as a sex offender for five years, Jordan was also made the subject of an indefinite Sexual Offences Prevention Order (Sopo) limiting his use of devices able to access the internet, which had to be available to be inspected by police.

He was also prohibited from buying female underwear.

But on July 4, as part of the monitoring procedure for the Sopo, probation and police officers attended Jordan’s home.

One of the officers noticed a device to enable a mobile phone to be contacted to the internet.

But when they asked to see it he refused to hand it over, saying he didn’t have it.

When the phone was eventually located it did not contain any indecent images of children but police discovered a memory stick concealed in his bed.

It contained three indecent images of children.

Jordan admitted three counts of possessing indecent images of children, one of making indecent images of children, and breaching the Sopo.

Judge Richard Twomlow made Jordan the subject of a community order to run alongside the existing order, which expires on June 7, 2016.

He was also ordered to complete 100 hours of unpaid work and pay a £60 victim surcharge.

Judge Twomlow told him: “The breach was flagrant and deliberate. Any further breach will result in imprisonment.”

Respected businessman had hundreds of indecent images of children

Published July 17, 2013 by JS2

THE wife of an insurance man is sticking by him – despite police finding hundreds of indecent pictures of children and extreme pornography on his computer.

Gloucester Crown Court heard businessman Richard Neubauer had nearly 1,500 images when police raided his Millway home in English Bicknor on August 24.

The 66-year-old admitted 12 charges of making indecent photographs and three of possessing extreme pornography.

Prosecutor Janine Wood told the court he confessed to police before the computer was analysed.

She said: “He said his wife had lost interest in sex, but he had no interest in children.

“He said he liked looking at girls in their teens in school uniforms, but he looked at them divorced from reality.”

Judge Jamie Tabor QC said: “My concern is I am not sure he understands the gravity of this offence.

“Children are horribly abused by people who take these images.

“These are wicked child abusers demeaning and damaging children so they can financially gain from the exploitation.”

Neubauer’s wife accompanied him to court.

In mitigation, Nigel Richardson said this was the first blot on the father-of-two’s character.

He said: “He has made a hugely positive contribution to his community.

“His wife could have very easily turned her back on him. It is very difficult for her.

“It is particularly difficult for him as well as he used to be a respected member of the community.

“He feels he has let himself, his family and faith down.”

Neubauer had been bought up a Christian, but following his father’s death found out the family were of Jewish background.

The court heard he and his wife converted and was well known within the Jewish community of the Forest of Dean.

Mr Richardson said that he had started experiencing panic attacks in 2001 and took Seroxat medication, which could reduce inhibitions.

Judge Tabor sentenced him to 18 months in jail suspended for two years and 200 hours of unpaid work.

He said: “The fact is the images you have downloaded showed, in part, young children suffering horrendous sexual abuse, which if you had seen going on in the street I have no doubt you would have, out of care, put a stop to it.”

Neubauer was also ordered to pay £250 costs and sign the sex offender register.

Nelson man had vile child sex abuse images on computer

Published July 9, 2013 by JS2

A self-employed Nelson man with almost 300 child pornography images on his laptop has been put on a three-year internet sex offenders’ treatment programme.

 

Edward Jeffrey (42), of Waidshouse Road, Nelson, was found to have 284 images of child abuse on his laptop when police arrived at his home with a search warrant.

David Macro (prosecuting) told Burnley Crown Court that in a police interview, Jeffrey admitted viewing the pictures for two years.

Jeffrey claimed to have been “not getting sexual gratification” from doing it, however, and instead said he was “researching” having recognised the background to one of the rooms where abuse was taking place.

Mr Macro said Jeffrey had sought help from counsellors and church leaders.

Richard Taylor (defending) said Jeffrey was a family man and was “humbled” by the support he had received from friends and family.

Mr Taylor said Jeffrey was a “troubled” man who was “ashamed” but also one with “a sense of relief” he had been caught and stopped. Mr Taylor said Jeffrey was finding the weekly counselling “extremely helpful”.

Recorder Andrew Edis QC said some of the acts depicted in the images were “the gravest kind of child abuse”.

He said: “Apart from being ashamed of being found out as I have no doubt you are, you might look to think if it wasn’t for people like you these children wouldn’t be harmed like that”.

Recorder Edis QC said it was “particularly disturbing to discover” that Jeffrey had said he had no sexual interest in children.

He said: “That’s completely unconvincing. It’s nonsense.”

Although Recorder Edis QC said a custody sentence would be “richly deserved” he said: “I’m not sending you to prison because you will come out with the same problem.”

As well as the three-year treatment programme, Jeffrey was given a five-year sexual offenders prevention order, a three-year supervision order, signed the sex offenders’ register and paid a £60 victim surcharge and £400 costs.

A PERVERT has been put on the sex offenders register indefinitely after installing a video camera in the family toilets of an Aberdeen shopping centre.

Tomasz Stozek, 35, who has previous convictions for sex offences, was jailed for 16 months and will remain on licence for a further 14 months.

Stozek, who was described as a prisoner in Aberdeen, admitted that between March 4 and May 12 at Union Square and elsewhere in Aberdeen he broke a Sexual Offences Prevention Order (SOPO) banning him from possessing or using any camera equipment.

He also admitted he recorded people, including children, in the Union Square toilets in Aberdeen, without their knowledge or consent.

Aberdeen Sheriff Court was told the footage lasted for 45 minutes and two women and two children were captured on film.

A spokesman for Aberdeen’s Union Square declined to comment.

Pervert is back in jail after moving

A CONVICTED child sex offender is today back behind bars after failing to tell police he had moved to Uttoxeter.

Paul Cordwell, who was living in Balance Street, was ordered to return to prison by Stafford Crown Court after he admitted failing to tell police he had moved from Newcastle under Lyme to the town.

The court heard the 48-year-old was ‘deliberately’ flouting a court order which put him on the sex offenders’ register for ten years.

The order was made back in November 2010 for offences of sexual assault.

It requires Cordwell to notify police of any change of his address.

He was caged for 21 months by the court.

Joanne Barker, prosecuting, said police carried out a spot check on his registered address in Newcastle under Lyme on April 17 this year and found he was no longer living there.

He was traced to an address in Uttoxeter and then arrested on May 25.

When questioned he claimed he had informed the police of his move.

Miss Barker added there was no evidence that Cordwell had illicitly moved in order to facilitate further sexual offences against children.

Darron Whitehead, defending, told the judge that he had specific instructions from the defendant not to mitigate the offence as he had said he wished to be sent to prison.

He said: “It was a deliberate breach.

“He wishes to be sentenced to custody.

“He doesn’t have an address [in Uttoxeter], it was his former partner’s address.

“That relationship no longer exists. He sees no future for himself.”

Judge Michael Challinor told him that the court had to consider protecting the public when sentencing him, although he added it was not the worst case there has been.

He said: “You were sentenced for sexual offences and ordered to notify the police [of your address].

“You failed to do that. This isn’t the worst case there is, but the court has to consider protection of the public.”

The judge added that imposing a short sentence would expose the public to risk.

Judge Challinor told Cordwell he was to be sent to prison for a year after admitting breaching the terms of the sex offenders’ register.

Pervert took 13-year-old girl’s virginity

Published July 1, 2013 by JS2

2700992014

A PERVERT loner who lived in the woods at Wilberfoss has been jailed for three years for taking the virginity of a 13-year-old schoolgirl he groomed over the internet.

 

Ian Brazier, 27, made contact with the girl on the Teenchat website telling her he was 25, while she told him she was 17. The relationship soon became sexual with the pair discussing what they would do to each other if they were to meet up.

Brazier booked into a bed and breakfast hotel and invited the girl to visit him in York.

Crown barrister Mark Kendall told Hull Crown Court: “During the course of the afternoon he took her virginity, although he did not know it at the time.

“He had initially made contact with her over the Teenchat website. She initially told him she was 17, but later told him she was 13. He said he was ok with that.”

He said the pair engaged in various sexual acts in York without contraception, before she went home. He then invited her back to his camp at Wilberfoss as their relationship continued.

He was only caught when a member of the public reported concerns for a young girl they had seen running around in woodland. The police then searched the Wilberfoss woods and found Brazier’s camp site. He originally lived with his parents and younger brother in Bartley, Shirley, near Sollihul.

The girl gave a video interview to the police in which she admitted sexual activity with other males over the internet.

Ian Brazier, 27, appeared for sentence last Friday after pleading guilty to six offences of having sexual activity with a child over a two year period. He pleaded not guilty to three charges of sexual activity with the same girl.

Defence barrister Paul Genney said: “He is a loner and an inadequate man with a low IQ. He has no friends and lives somewhat like a recluse. His fascination with sexual interests could stem from his feeling of inadequacy at being bullied in school.”

Sentencing Judge Simon Jack told Brazier: “You knew perfectly well what you were doing was wrong. You knew it was illegal, but you decided to go ahead anyway.

“You are old enough and intelligent enough to be responsible for your own acts. These were very serious offences and there has to be a substantial prison sentence.”

“You will take part in a sex offender’s treatment programme while in prison. I hope you take full advantage of that to prevent a repeat of these offences.”

The judge also imposed a 10-year Sexual Offences Prevention Order on Mr Brazier. He must also sign on the National Sex Offenders’ Register indefinitely.
