An Australian man accused of making child pornography with a boy he "purchased" and "sharing" him among other men has been sentenced to 40 years in a US prison.

The 42-year-old man, who investigators say used falsified documents to adopt the boy after taking him to the US where he allowed other men to sexually abuse the child, was sentenced after pleading guilty to conspiracy charges involving child exploitation.

The judge of a US federal court in Indiana said she accepted the plea agreement only because the videos were too horrific to show a jury.
[...]

In a quaking voice, the shackled man stood before Barker and apologised, saying "being a father was an honour and a privilege that amounted to the best six years of my life."

"I'm deeply sorry," he added. "And I regret any harm I caused to my son or anyone else."

"Words don't help," Jude Barker responded. "What can be said? What can be done to erase some of the horror of this?"
[...]

A sentencing document obtained by the AP said the man and his partner originally tried to hire a surrogate mother in an unidentified foreign country to bear a child, but ended up paying another woman $8,000 for the boy and then portrayed him as a biological son of one of the men.
[...]

The men had been living with the boy in California, where they were able to use falsified records to legalise an adoption, according to court records obtained by The Associated Press.

Federal prosecutor Steve DeBrota said the crimes occurred in Australia, the US, France and Germany. Two other boys were also abused, prosecutors said, though no details were released.

Standing before an American court convicted of the most heinous of child sex crimes, Australian citizen Mark Newton and his long-term boyfriend Peter Truong had their double lives laid bare.
[...]

Police believe the pair adopted the boy ''for the sole purpose of exploitation''.

The abuse began just days after his birth.

Over six years the couple travelled the world, offering him up for sex with at least eight men, recording the abuse and uploading the footage to an international syndicate known as the Boy Lovers Network.

''Personally … I think this is probably the worst [paedophile] ring … if not the worst ring I've ever heard of,'' investigator Brian Bone of the US Postal Inspection Service told reporters outside a court in Indiana.
[...]

Newton and Truong gave an interview to an ABC reporter in far north Queensland in 2010 about their battle to have a child as a gay couple.

Their search started in 2002 in the US, where they both were working, and when they did not have any success Truong travelled to Russia and found a woman who they ''clicked with personality-wise''.

She was paid $8000 and, as per their agreement, granted the couple sole custody of the boy, handing him over five days after his birth in 2005.

The family planned to return to Queensland and live in Cairns but that was delayed because Australian authorities initially refused to grant the child a visa.

That took another 2½ years and upon their eventual arrival in Australia they said customs quizzed them for hours. Police were also sent to the family's house in Cairns to check up on the pair.

In the radio interview, 20 months before their arrest, Newton was asked if he felt the extra attention was because authorities suspected there was ''something dodgy … something paedophilic going on here''.

''Absolutely, absolutely, I'm sure that was completely the concern,'' Newton replied.

Evidence before the US District Court revealed the abuse began before the couple arrived back in Australia. One video is said to show Newton performing a sex act on the boy when he was less than two weeks old.

And while they gave off the perfect image of a modern family to outsiders, Judge Barker said the pair brainwashed the child to believe the sexual abuse was normal behaviour. Newton was also said to have trained the boy to deny any inappropriate behaviour if he was ever questioned by authorities.

''These men submitted this young child to some of the most heinous acts of exploitation that this office has ever seen,'' said Indiana US attorney Joe Hogsett.

Newton and Truong came to the attention of police in August 2011 after their connections to three men arrested over the possession of child exploitation material came to light.
[...]

While the couple were visiting extended family in the US, Queensland police searched their Cairns home and found enough evidence to alert their American counterparts, who raided their Los Angeles base and took the boy into custody. Newton and Truong claimed they were being targeted because they were homosexual.

However, after arrest in February 2011, Truong gave investigators the password to the computer hard drives police had seized. They detailed the years of abuse, including instances where they had flown the boy between Australia, the US, France and Germany to record at least eight other paedophiles sexually abusing him.

Newton has been given the maximum sentence available in the US for conspiracy to sexually exploit a minor and possessing child pornography. Truong, who also pleaded guilty, will be sentenced shortly.

Investigator's hunch breaks open the case: (the boy has the pseudonym "Adam" in this article)
Newton and Truong’s secret life began to unravel at a New Zealand home in August 2011 when a fan of their work and fellow sex offender was arrested with computer drives containing “happy snapsâ€￾ of Adam and his parents among images of child exploitation.

To the untrained eye, the pictures depicted a family outing, but to a network of veteran detectives the snaps triggered grave concern.

“On examination of the drives, they located some of the images – whilst they were not of a nature that would constitute a criminal offence, to the trained eye, and there is a network of investigators across the world who do this on a daily basis, the images were not what you would see as a traditional family snap,’’ said Detective Inspector Jon Rouse, head of Queensland police Taskforce Argos which targets pedophilia.

“The pictures were kind of modeling shots, it looked wrong to us,â€￾ said Inspector Rouse in an exclusive interview with Seven News.

However a detectives’ hunch was not sufficient for a search warrant but it was enough for both Argos and New Zealand’s Department of Internal Affairs to launch an investigation.

Argos conducted background checks and used their specialist victim identification staff to identify who the people were in the photos and locate the boy. At the same time New Zealand authorities examined chat logs and information contained on their offender’s hard drives.
[...]

Argos conducted several raids in Queensland including the men’s Cairns home where they found a sophisticated set-up of surveillance cameras.

Concerned for Adam’s welfare, Queensland police alerted their US counterparts who raided the men’s Los Angeles home and took them into custody and placed Adam into care in October 2011.
[...]

“These two individuals were meticulous about cataloging nearly everything they did, all of their travel. The young boy featured very heavily in most of this material. Everything from airports to theme parks….they documented everything which was to their detriment,’’ he said.

The information also helped police identify some of their associates.

“So the backend of all this work being done, we had encrypted material we had a strong suspicion contained child exploitation images. We had a boy in care and the two offenders at large in Los Angeles protesting their innocence and the matter progressing through the (US) Family Law Court,’’ Insp Rouse said.

At the time Newton and Truong claimed authorities were targeting them because of their homosexuality.

Insp Rouse rejected the men’s claims saying Argos targets anyone who harms children.

"If you're harming a child - I don't care what your gender is - we will take action. Our interest is the child, not your sexual preference."

Through their strong ties with their overseas counterparts, Argos learned the US Postal Inspection Service (USPIS) was investigating the Boy Lover network.

USPIS investigator Brian Bone was alerted to the photos of Adam found on the New Zealand offender and recognised he was the same boy who featured pornographic footage and images uncovered in several of their investigations.
[...]

When the drives were unlocked, it was “blatantly apparentâ€￾ to investigators Newton and Truong had bought Adam into their lives for exclusive purpose of sexually exploiting him among the Boy Lovers network.
[...]

Two other men, American residents John R Powell, 41, a Florida-based lawyer, and Jason Bettuo, a 36-year-old Michigan tennis coach, have also been charged.

US Attorney Joseph H Hogsett said between 2010 and 2011, Newtown and Truong travelled to San Francisco to meet with Powell and Bettuo who filmed themselves having sex with Adam.

Powell also travelled to the men’s Cairns home in this time to do the same with Adam.
[...]

Adam’s future is unknown and he is currently in the care of an American family.
[...]

Investigation into the men’s activities is continuing.
[...]

Examination of the pair’s finances has also raised questions with investigators of how the men supported their global lifestyle with no obvious means of income.

“There was no real money trail that indicates they are in a form of employment that would sustain the lifestyle they’ve had and you can draw your own conclusion with respect to the amount of travel they’ve done and where they’ve been and the purpose of that travel,â€￾ Insp Rouse said.

Thank the gods that so much effort was made to connect the dots through international cooperation. Argos knew that they probably wouldn't get the collar or credit, but they didn't stop investigating, and now little "Adam" can maybe have a chance at healing and a normal life with a loving family because of it.

Good on ya, Argos!

Yep, it's amazing that two police entities from entirely differing countries could actually cooperate to that degree! In fact, more than two. I'm so used to seeing turf wars and pissing matches depicted on television that I'm shocked to find that maybe that crap is fiction after all. And thank God they did cooperate. These shitbags needed to be brought down. And it's wonderful they were brought down here and not in Australia where I think they subscribe to a fairly lenient sentencing structure in the British mode. (Please, please, correct me if I'm wrong.) I'm all for throwing them to the wolves if any can be found in one of the other countries they frequented--like maybe Russia would like to get in on it?

"Such an honor being a father, " my goddamned eye! "The best six years of [your] life," sure. You were living a pedo's dream, weren't you! Not being a father at all.

You know, few stories on here leave me completely stunned, but this is one of them. To go through the trouble of finding a woman in another country willing to sell you a child, to raise and save the thousands of dollars needed to complete that transaction and any other travel expenses incurred, to falsify documents in order to finalize this adoption and deceive the system, that's a lot of work, to just fulfill your perversions. I'm certain there is no rehabilitating these people- if they went to those lengths to secure themselves a sex toy once, they'd do it again, if given the chance. Just kill them and save a lot of time and money.

I hope this little boy will be able to move on, and with a lot of therapy and support, learn that this is not normal, and go on to live a happy, productive life. One can only hope these monsters haven't ruined him permanently.

Now that I've said my piece, I'll wait patiently for the person who's going to inevitably come along to make some correlation between homosexuality and pedophilia. *taps fingers*

I can only get as far as reading and rereading the line in bold and italics "The abuse began just days after his birth". Each time I read it, I see red and want blood, lots of it from those 2.

Unfortunately, I don't see how this little boy will grow up normal. I mean 6 years of sexual abuse has to have some kind of detrimental affect to the psyche. I can only hope that much needed therapy will allow him to lead a somewhat ok life.

And yes, of course some jackass will undoubtedly say something about them being gay...

He will always carry some emotional scars but he does have a good chance of growing up to be a very well rounded, successful, normal adult. I know people who have endured horrific abuse at a young age and were able to overcome their past. The key is having a strong support group and family to help him through.

That is what I worry about. Who is going to adpopt a 6yr old, who has been sexually abused his entire life? It's hard enough to get people to adopt older children, let alone ones with a past as horrific as his. Poor baby.

Also, while I'm sure some children do manage to overcome, you can never be certain about how much a child retains in their subconscious that may cause them to act out later in life.

A journalist's second thoughts
In 2010 Ginger Gorman interviewed a gay couple about their struggle to become parents. When the men were uncovered as paedophiles Gorman was left with a deep sense of grief for the boy and questioned whether there was anything she could have done.

I snap several pictures of Boy 1 holding a baby chick up under his chin. He stands in between his two fathers. All three of them are smiling.

At the time I thought this photo was so sweet; it featured on the front page of my gender project's web page on the ABC. Now there's a sinister edge to it. This is the photo news organisations all over the world have published and re-published, with Boy 1's face blurred out to protect his identity. (also used in the original post of this thread)

There is just something that tells me this animal has never been abused, I think he was born evil. He and all the other pedos involved in this ring will never be remorseful for what they did, only that they got caught.





John Rex Powell, 41, of Florida, was scheduled to fight the charges at a jury trial beginning in Indianapolis yesterday.

However, Powell requested the trial date be moved to October "with the anticipation of reaching a plea agreement", according to court documents.

The assaults were recorded on high definition cameras.

.........Powell allegedly flew to Australia and Truong and Newton gave him access to the boy to create child pornography.

.......Newton and Truong travelled to France for a holiday and invited Powell along so he could sexually abuse the boy and record the assaults.

The boy was aged between five and six at the time of the alleged assaults.

Powell is also accused of abusing an American boy aged between eight and nine.

Newton was sentenced to 40 years jail last month in Indianapolis after pleading guilty to counts of conspiracy to sexually exploiting a child and conspiracy to possessing child pornography.

Truong, 36, formerly of Cairns, is also facing a 40-year sentence after pleading guilty to the same charges.

The boy was rescued by US authorities in Los Angeles and is being cared for in California.

I would adopt him if I could. I know a woman who fosters sexually abused children specifically because she wants to do her best to reverse the idea of "love". Most sexually abused children are told that its love....and if Thsts not the case then she just shows them as much family normalcy as possible. Unfortunately, you are completely right though. He is a risk for adoption, especially to families who already have children. So sad....that poor baby.

QUEENSLAND pedophile Peter Truong didn't look like a man about to be sentenced to 30 years' jail when he shuffled into the elegant District Court room in Indianapolis.

Dressed in a black and white striped prison jumpsuit, orange joggers and his wrists and legs shackled, Truong waved and smiled at his parents who had flown in from Australia and were sitting in the second row of the sparsely populated courtroom on Monday. Truong then gave the US prosecutors an equally friendly smile and wave.

Truong, who bought a newborn boy for $US8000 ($8784) and then allowed men around the world to abuse the child, was sentenced in a US court to 30 years' jail on Monday, after facing a maximum 40-year sentence.

The plea deal he struck with prosecutors could have allowed a minimum of 24 years.

US District Court judge Sarah Evans Barker, in announcing the sentence in Indianapolis, took note of Truong's willingness to work with authorities to lead them to other pedophiles and his own history as a childhood abuse victim.

The court heard how as a child and teenager he was sexually abused and became a member of a “man-boy cult”.

If Truong is to be believed, he is a changed man.

“I want to say thank you to the authorities for saving my son, but also for saving me as well,” Truong told Judge Barker.
[...]

Prosecutors say Truong and Newton bought the boy from a woman in a "foreign" country, believed to be Russia, and then transported him around the world to engage in sex with more than half a dozen other men, all before his sixth birthday.

The baby then became a jewel in a global pedophile network that Truong and Newton were members of.

They sexually assaulted the baby, recorded the assaults on high definition video cameras, then passed on the videos to other pedophiles. Truong went by the screen name “Plopper” on pedophile internet sites.

The network is a forum for men who describe sexual abuse of boys between the ages of two and 10 as a form of consensual love between man and boy.

Police say they won't rest until all the men involved in the network have been caught.

"With this network, rest assured that we will pursue them to the ends of the Earth to make sure each and every one of them faces justice for what their role has been in crimes against this child," Jon Rouse, who is part of the taskforce investigating online child exploitation, told 7.30.

"The purchase of the child for the explicit and sole purpose of exploiting him across a network of men is incredibly depraved and a very sad tale for that little boy."
[...]

Truong entered guilty pleas to one count of conspiracy to sexually exploit a child and conspiracy to possess child pornography.

You have every right to roar mamma bear, and I so agree with you, I have no tolerance for anyone who hurts a child, the ONLY time I feel that serious consideration of all the facts is when it is a child, if you are an adult, piss off, you know better and don't EVEN try to tell me it happened to you and that is why you do it, because I call BS on that, because I feel a person who has been abused, KNOWS the pain it would cause. I admire the women who come to Dreamin Demon, the like minded, the women who know better, it makes me so proud to be one of you, and it makes me proud of my women sisters.

As good as these convictions are, it's still nothing for anyone to be proud of.

The authorities suspected (correctly) from the outset that these scum were doing what has been proven.

It took 5 years (and some seriously arrogant and risky behavior by these sick, perverted, priveledged cunts) for the various agencies involved to rescue this child and produce a result.

Holy mother of Hulk. He was never his "son". I hope they rape then kill him in prison. Or, they could keep him alive to be a sperm repository and the recipient of regularly scheduled beatings. I'd sleep much better at night if I knew this man was wishing he'd die.

SYDNEY, July 3, 2013 (LifeSiteNews.com) - Police in Australia have described as "depraved" the case of a six-year-old boy who was sexually abused by his adoptive homosexual "fathers" and other men who were part of an international child-porn syndicate known as the Boy Lovers network.
Authorities in Australia and the US worked together to arrest and charge the men after it emerged that the boy had been offered to men in Australia, the US, France and Germany for sexual exploitation and the production of child pornography from a very young age.

Last week one of the men, an American named Mark J. Newton, 42, was jailed in the U.S. for 40 years and ordered to pay $400,000 in restitution to the child, while the other, Peter Truong, 36, from New Zealand, awaits sentencing in his home country.

"None of these cases are very good," Detective Inspector Jon Rouse, who heads Australia’s Queensland Police Taskforce Argos, which investigates online child exploitation and abuse, told the AFP news agency.

"What's pretty sad about this one is the way this child came into their lives. It's just really a tragedy. It's extremely depraved."
