Another Paedo dealt to – throw away the key

Since the death penalty and torture aren’t really options for animals like Aaron Paul Laurence, the idea that he’ll be put into jail indefinitely certainly appeals.

It means everyone is convinced this predator is beyond redemption, beyond recovery, beyond repair.

Clio Francis and Blair Ensor and Fairfax report  

It can now be revealed that Aaron Paul Laurence, 38, has pleaded guilty to more than 60 charges of abuse, including the rape of young boys and the production and distribution of footage of their ordeals.

Aaron Paul Laurence represents the worst and most despicable:  abusing children for self gratification and for profit.

When Laurence’s stash of illicit child pornography was finally uncovered last year – hidden in a mire of computer encryptions and passwords – police found more than 31,000 images and videos. Many were homemade and detailed his horrific abuse of eight boys, aged between 8 and 13, across the lower North Island.

The piece of scum tried to have his photo suppressed

Laurence opposed The Dominion Post’s application to photograph him.  His lawyer, Louise Brown, said any photos could impact on his safety in prison and could affect his mother’s deteriorating health. Judge Ian Mill said such considerations were not sufficient to replace the principles of open justice.

Awesome.  Go Judge Mill.  We need more decisions like that.

Wellington District Court judge Ian Mill declined to sentence Laurence and said preventive detention should be considered because of the nature and extent of the offending.   He remanded him in custody to be sentenced at the High Court in April.

Judge of the Week, for sure.
