Child Porn

A clear case for preventative detention

I have a problem with letting recidivist child sex offenders out of jail just because their sentence has been served. ?Here is a perfect example of someone who had no self control

A convicted paedophile was sent to jail after accumulating thousands of photos and films of children being sexually abused, and distributing some to others.

Paul Bettridge, 43, pleaded guilty to 30 charges of possessing and two of distributing objectionable images. He was jailed for two years and nine months.

In the New Plymouth District Court on Tuesday it was revealed that Bettridge was first caught in mid-2012 by Department of Internal Affairs officers monitoring the internet.

They were aware that he constantly changed his electronic address.

On January 17 last year a search warrant was executed and his computer equipment seized and searched.

Bettridge said to the officers he was waiting for them to arrive.

Crown prosecutor Andrew Britton said of the 6000 sexually explicit images on Bettridge’s computer files much was found to be objectionable and involved the sexual abuse of children.

Bettridge was imprisoned in 1998 for sexually assaulting a boy and girl under 12.

Bettridge’s lawyer Turitea Bolstad said Bettridge took full responsibility from the outset and asked for full credit for his guilty plea and remorse.

Yeah. ?Minimise the risk. ?Do your time. ?Then do it all over again.

If he acts on his impulses with anything more than just photos next time, who is to blame? ? Read more »
