An Australian, who together with his domestic partner, bought a newborn boy in Russia and allowed men around the world to abuse him, has been sentenced in a US court to 30 years in jail.
Peter Truong, 36, born in Vietnam, and his partner Mark Newton, 42, born in the US, both Australian citizens, bought a newborn boy in Russia for US$8,000, according to prosecutors.
The boys birth papers were falsified to list Newton as his biological father. The fraud then allowed the boy to be adopted and taken to Queensland, Australia, where the pair lived.
Law enforcers assume the pair allowed at least eight men in different countries, including Australia, the US, Germany and France, to abuse the boy between the ages of two and six. The men recorded videos of their own sexual assaults on the baby and distributed them across a global pedophile web-source, known as the Boy Lovers Network.
In June, Mark Newton was sentenced for the maximum term of 40 years by a US judge in Indianapolis.
Truong faced similar sentence. He however struck a plea deal with prosecutors. The deal could have allowed a minimum of 24 years. Both men were tried in the US District Court for the Southern District of Indiana.
While announcing the sentence in Indianapolis on Monday, District Court Judge Sarah Evans Barker emphasized Truongs cooperation with the authorities in helping them find other pedophiles. She also noted the fact the accused was himself a victim of childhood abuse.
The pedophile pair was arrested in Los Angeles in 2011. The boy has now reportedly been adopted by a US family.
The story caused a stir in the Russian media, with the countrys Ombudsman for Childrens Rights Pavel Astakhov promising to closely follow the boys life in the new family, as according to Russian law an adopted child remains a Russian citizen until adulthood.
Russian orphans have always attracted foreign perverts because of accessibility. The foreigners were simply coming and taking children for money, Astakhov told RT following Newtons sentencing in June.
Why aren’t they dead?
This is a very disturbing story. Anyone who votes Democrat helps enable this type of abuse.
Ladies and Gentlemen, hug your babies!
Will Short Eyes last 24 years?
In 20 years, if we are all still here, this will not be considered an offense.
These two were celebrated by the media & the gay rights groups...they are silent now.
RginTN ~ These two were celebrated by the media & the gay rights groups...they are silent now.
In 20 years the the media & the gay rights groups will be celebrating them again and trumpeting their release. IF WE LET THINGS CONTINUE TO DETERIORATE.
This story is almost as much about the American dictatorships’ control of the media, as it is about the perverse world we live in. I don’t give a crap about what people do to themselves in their own home. Anyone defined by their sexuality should NOT be able to adopt children
They will have to spend their prison time in solitary confinement or they will be dead.
I wonder if horrible stories such as this one caused Putin to crackdown on international adoption of Russian children?
