Boy found child porn material on laptop

first_imgNewsLocal NewsBoy found child porn material on laptopBy admin – May 25, 2012 1454 A13-year-old boy found child rape movies on his laptop after he loaned it to a 45-year-old UK national in 2010, to use while his own was broken.  The revelation unfolded as Limerick Circuit Court heard evidence from Det Garda, Christine Bergin in the case against Simeon Betts, a man charged with the possession of 50 child pornographic movies and nine images on three laptops that were seized from his possession in 2010.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up The material found was said to have been at the “utmost end of the scale” and of the “horrendous” exploitation of children where some as young as four years of age were raped by adults and animals.Betts, with an address at Henry Street, Limerick, pleaded guilty to the possession of the images and movie files, having first denied the allegation in a lengthy interview conducted by gardai at a house in Hollymount, Raheen in March 2010. Det Gda Bergin and other members of the force raided the home of the accused under search warrant after receiving certain information from Interpol and the UK based Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre (CEOP). Analysis of the material found on the computers was carried out by specialist agencies where Det Garda Bergin enlisted the help of up to six different investigation units including Interpol and CEOP. Betts was charged in July 2010 and made admissions at the time of charge.At his sentencing hearing on the final day of term of Limerick Circuit Court, Simeon Betts said nothing as he sat in the dock as evidence and detailed descriptions of the search terms, files and images were given to the court. Acting on the information received by Interpol, the gardai obtained a search warrant and went to the home of the accused on March 4, 2010. Betts’ place of work, his cars, a campervan and another address in county Limerick that he had access to, were searched and a number of items were seized for analysis. The material found was linked to three laptops seized – one in the kitchen, one in the bedroom and one in the garage attached to the home. Betts admitted, in interview, to knowingly having the material in his possession,All three had been used to view and access the content which was described in court and one computer was actively used to search the internet for child pornography where Betts would masturbate to movies and images “as a means to satisfy his desire” according to Defence Counsel, Mark Nicholas who added in mitigation that this must have been a “horrible situation to be in but he {Betts} made admissions and takes full responsibility for his actions. He’s in deep distress and wants to engage help”.Betts, the court heard was later arrested in July 2010 and during the course of four interviews held, he made full admissions as to his interest in such material. During one such interview, the accused man admitted to being sexually aroused while viewing the material online. He also admitted to borrowing a laptop from a 13-year-old boy and used it to search for child pornography. The laptop had been returned to the boy some time later and the child pornographic material with movies of children as young as four years of age being raped, was returned to the boy. The files had not been deleted. The court heard from Det Gda Bergin that the teenager informed both gardai and his mother as to the content of the material found. Since the charges were brought against the accused, Betts is now unemployed but had previously worked in a card and birthdays shop, a gift store in the city centre as well as the Early Learning Centre. The father of four, who admitted to having “felt bad knowing that a child suffered while he watched the movies, is now said to have very restricted access to his children and had tried to “suppress” his desires to seek out the material.Betts, with previous convictions for minor road traffic offences and who is on bail with a daily sign on requirement, faces a maximum sentence of five years in prison. Judge Carroll Moran was handed a report conducted by clinical psychologist Dr Patrick Ryan who said that Betts had an insight into his problem but was “not out of the woods yet”. The Judge adjourned sentencing until June 8 stating that it was a “difficult case” that needs his full consideration in sentencing.

Mexican migrants sent home a record $40 billion in 2020

first_imgMEXICO CITY (AP) — Mexico’s central bank says money sent home by Mexican migrants rose 11.4% in 2020 to a new high despite the coronavirus pandemic. The banks said Tuesday that migrants sent home a record $40.6 billion in 2020, including $4 billion last March alone, which was a new high for a single month. The record flow for 2020 compared to $36.4  billion sent by Mexican migrants in 2019. The rise was much better than other countries, which have seen drops in the money flowing home from their migrants because of job losses or reductions in hours due to the pandemic.last_img

Edo Athletics Inaugurates Technical Committee for 6th Okpekpe Race

first_img“I am a stickler for due process and I believe that in any event, the local association must be allowed to play its role. Give it to the organisers of the Okpekpe race who have always involved officials from the Edo Athletics Association. Now we want to take it a step further because many of the people serving in the technical committee are former athletes and athletics coaches who understand the rules of the sport,” said Ebewele, a member of the board of Athletics Federation of Nigeria (AFN).“With the sixth edition of the Okpekpe race holding this May, it is clear the race has come to stay and there is the need to develop more local capacity for the organisation of the race. There is also the need to strengthen community capacity to participate in both the technical and administrative organisation of the race,” Ebewele added.He is convinced the elevation of the Okpekpe race status to a first ever silver label race in West Africa will require the involvement of more technically savvy officials.Meanwhile, Chairman of the Technical Committee, Emale has said that the role of the members among other things is to give technical advice to the Main Organising Committee (MOC) for the race.The Okpekpe International 10km Road Race will be the first IAAF Silver Label 10km race of the year. It will hold a day before the IAAF Gold Label Tata Consultancy Services World 10K in Bangalore, India.The race is the only road race recognised by the Association of International Marathons and Distance Races (AIMS) in Nigeria and the sixth edition will hold on May 12, 2018 in Okpekpe near Auchi.It is organised by Pamodzi Sports Marketing, leaders in sports marketing and hospitality business in Nigeria.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram A technical committee to see to the successful organisation of the sixth edition of the IAAF Silver Label Okpekpe International 10km Road Race has been constituted by the Edo State Athletics Association in Benin City.The committee is headed by Paschal Emale and has 12 members including Otii Ignatius who will serve as secretary and Otupate Adebisi Richard who will serve as the assistant secretary.Route and Participation Coordinator for the Okpekpe race, Brown Ebewele, believes the full involvement of the host state’s athletics association is in line with the race organisers’ plan to ensure athletics officials in Edo State are not only given a sense of belonging but to also recognise their importance as far as organising a successful race is concerned.last_img read more
