SEN­TENC­ING

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Prolific Paedophile Jailed For Life -

Hand­ing Huckle a life sen­tence, Judge Peter Rook QC said: “You are just 30-years-old, you are a UK na­tional. You have had the ben­e­fit of ed­u­ca­tion in this coun­try.

“You say that in your youth you did not feel that you be­longed in this coun­try. You trav­elled to, and resided in Malaysia, ac­tu­ally mi­grat­ing there in 2010 where you com­mit­ted sex­ual of­fences of the ut­most grav­ity.

“Re­lent­lessly you preyed upon the very young, pre pubescent chil­dren.

“This was a pro­longed cam­paign of rape of the chil­dren.

“One of the most ag­gra­vat­ing fea­tures of this case is the fact you tar­geted and groomed chil­dren from an im­pov­er­ished com­mu­nity. That com­mu­nity was par­tic­u­larly vul­ner­a­ble be­cause of its poverty.

“Your life re­volved around your ob­ses­sion. It is clear that had you not been ar­rested, you planned to con­tinue with the same life­style.

He added: “You be­came pro­lific in terms of post­ing in­de­cent images.”

Dis­cussing the planned paedophile man­ual, he said: “The man­ual is a truly evil doc­u­ment. It speaks vol­umes about the scale of your self delu­sion, de­scrib­ing your con­duct as child love.

“Fur­ther­more, it ap­pears as though your con­duct was es­ca­lat­ing.”
