The judge in the case said at the time, according to Reuters, “At one stage, you made the chilling observation that ‘impoverished kids are definitely much easier to seduce than middle-class Western kids.’”
“It is also clear,” Judge Rook added, “that, had you not been arrested, you planned to continue the same lifestyle using the expertise that you were keen to show off to and share with other abusers so as to continue your sexual exploitation of the children of such communities.”
After Mr. Huckle’s arrest, the authorities found more than 20,000 indecent images and videos of children, and some of him sexually abusing them, on his computer and camera.
They also found a “Pedopoints ledger” — a game in which he awarded himself points for 15 varying levels of abuse on children, which escalated from “basic” to “hard core,” The Guardian reported.
In a speech in June, Home Secretary Sajid Javid said that of the nearly three million accounts “registered on the worst child sexual abuse sites on the dark web,” about 140,000 are from Britain.
Though he said that the sexual abuse of minors was not confined to the internet, Mr. Javid added that this could be how it starts.
“Every online offender we identify represents a potential offline risk,” he said.
