Unrepentant Paedophile Who Abused 200 Children Gets 22 Life Sentences

british photographer rapes 200 children

June 6, 2016 – Richard Huckle, British Photographer Who Defiled 200 Kids Gets 22 Life Sentences 

Richard Huckle, who abused up to 200 children, has been handed 22 life sentences with a minimum term of 25 years.

The freelance photographer, from Ashford in Kent, admitted an unprecedented number of offences against children aged between six months and 12 years from 2006 to 2014.

A stream of pictures and videos of his rapes and assaults on children were shared with paedophiles worldwide on the dark web.

He even tried to make a business out of his horrific crimes by crowd-funding the release of the images. He was working on a guide to help paedophiles abuse children and get away with it when he was arrested.

Twenty-three children from poor Christian communities in Malaysian capital Kuala Lumpur were identified in 71 charges, although a “Pedopoints ledger” Huckle compiled indicated the real number of victims was much higher.

Huckle stood in prayer as he was sentenced by Judge Peter Rook QC, reports Sky News.

As he was sent down, a woman in the public gallery at the Old Bailey shouted: “1,000 deaths is too good for you.”

Judge Peter Rook QC told Huckle he had carried out a “campaign of rape” and was consumed by his own sexual gratification.

He said: “You have pleaded guilty to as many as 71 sexual offences. It is very rare indeed that a judge has to sentence sexual offending by one person on such a scale as this.”

Huckle first visited Malaysia on a teaching gap year when he was 19 and later used an English teaching qualification and his professed Christianity to gain access to dozens of victims in poor communities there.

He was arrested by National Crime Agency officials who had been tipped off by Australian authorities as he arrived at Gatwick Airport on his way to spend Christmas with his family in 2014.

Investigators managed to recover more than 20,000 indecent images of children from Huckle’s computer, even though he refused to give them any passwords.

But they were unable to access some encrypted files, which are believed to contain “numerous” depraved images, as well as the names of a large number of unknown potential victims.

As well as the draft of Huckle’s paedophile manual, they found his “Pedopoints ledger” in which he awarded himself marks for acts of depravity with children.

    At least there are no children where he is locked up so hopefully kids are safe from this person. But it boggles the mind that right under everyone’s nose he defiled a whopping 200 children. I hope he will not be paroled some few years on for some alleged “good behavior” and thus be given another opportunity to continue his dastardly act. Evil man!!!

    22yrs for voilating as much as 200 kids is too good a punishment for this tormentor of vulnerable children. He was supposed to be slamed at least 150 yrs to keep him away from the kids almost for ever.

    I take a stroll…
