This case goes to show that not all child-rapists belong to Muslim grooming gangs, because from time-to-time child-molesting scum surface in the White British community. We must always remain vigilant.
Newcastle Crown Court, November 2023: A Northumberland primary school teacher and her business analyst boyfriend were jailed last week at Newcastle Crown Court for a series of serious sexual offences involving children.
Thomas Surtees age 37, a business analyst from Wallsend, North Tyneside, admitted ten charges of sexual assault of a child, one charge of sexual activity in the presence of a child, three charges of making child sexual abuse images, one charge of taking an indecent image of a child, and one charge of sexual communication with a child.
Zoe Williams, age 30, a primary school teacher from Widdrington, Northumberland, admitted two charges of the sexual assault of a child under the age of 13 years, sexual activity in the presence of a child, and three charges of making child sexual abuse images.
The court heard that Zoe Williams, a primary school teacher and her boyfriend Thomas Surtees, would exchange WhatsApp messages where they would fantasize about sexual activity with children. Surtees was initially arrested for sex assaults on five child victims. Williams was not originally involved in those offences, but a police forensic search of his phone found video footage of the couple sexually abusing a child. When William’s phone was searched, similar video footage was found.
This was an unusual case because a woman was not only involved in the sexual abuse, but was actively encouraging further attacks on children. Both Williams and Surtees had indecent images of other children on their mobile phones. The court was told that the images held by Surtees included the sexual abuse of a toddler. Video clips on both their phones showed the pair sexually assaulting a child and also engaging in sexual activity between themselves in the presence of the child.
Thomas Surtees was a business analyst, supposedly a professional white-collar worker based in North Tyneside. Zoe Williams taught at Ellingham Church of England Primary School, but there was no evidence at her trial that she had involved children from the school.
The court was told that the offences were “fuelled by drink and drugs”, and that there was “a significant risk of causing serious harm to children by the commission of further offences”, and that both Surtees and Williams “made and kept recordings of their victims for sexual gratification and future pleasure.” At the trial, Judge Clemitson gave the opinion that Zoe Williams was not inclined to protect children but encouraged Surtees offending.
In a striking parallel, a recent paedophile gang trial at Glasgow Crown Court had similar excuses for the deviant behaviour being fuelled by Class A drugs and alcohol. Thomas Surtees was only sentenced to 15 years in prison, with a further five years on licence. Zoe Williams was only sentenced to 10 years, with a further five years on licence.
British Movement considers that the terms of imprisonment of these two dangerous perverts is far too lenient, and the casual references to the use of hard drugs and drug addiction as an excuse for Zoe William’s behaviour is unacceptable.
Who would want someone like Zoe Williams teaching their children? Who would want someone like Thomas Surtees living in their street?
