Warning, distressing content.
I'm the woman who wrote in a while ago about my exs brother being charged with watching child pornography and whether or not I should tell my exs family who has very small children.
The court case was today. Hes been found guilty! But... he basically got off with a slap on the wrist. Last time I wrote in I was very distressed about how much my ex was protecting his brother and making excuses. How no one was notifying other family members with children about his offences and not giving them a choice to bring their children around to family gatherings.
The family of the perp has been making excuses and protecting him this whole fking time and this scumbag has gotten off with a suspended sentence. And it's only being recorded on his file for 5 years.
So I found out via phone conversation that the pedo (let's call him D) had lied about what actually happened. D had said he accidentally came across some unsure material but thought the person in the pornography was 17 or so... found out that wasnt the case... the child in question was MUCH younger. So here is the story from my ex and what happened in court today.
D had heard family rumours that his dad had taken photos and videos of him and his 3 siblings as children (all 4 children were tampered with as children by their father) and they were circulating on the internet. So D went looking for them. (I call absolute BS!!!!) Then somehow that led D to looking at child pornography and the police caught him and he was charged.
Today at the court D had made a defense case by saying he did it because his dad had abused him. Ds sister who is a psychologist wrote a 3000 page defence for D blaming their dad and how it affected all of them. My ex got up on the stand in defence of this complete sicko.
It blew my mind... these siblings of D were all protecting him... the judge took this defence in mind and gave him a suspended sentence with a criminal record of 5 years.
Wtf is wrong with this justice system? Has anyone heard an impact statement from the child in the video? From the mother of that child? Has anyone ever considered that we literally have an EPIDEMIC of child sexual abuse and pedophilia in this country. Does anyone ever stop to think that there is a royal commission investigation into our judicial system and these sick fks are getting off Scott free with suppression orders, slaps on the wrist and no consequences for what they've done? These sick people are walking free to go and commit these crimes again!
9 times out of 10 they recommit the crimes they were guilty of ffs! We have a massive problem in the justice system and pedophilia. Well... now D is back out on the streets and free to commit more crimes against our children.
I bet this family isnt even going to tell their extended family about what's happened... it goes to show how far people will go to protect these sick fkn puppies.
