The wonders of diversity never cease to amaze us here at the BM Northern site. It really is the gift that keeps on giving – a continuous drip feed of horror stories involving the temporary guests in our country which has mostly lost its ability to shock.
But a recent case heard at Leeds Crown Court of a Leeds nail bar manager who was caught with thousands of child abuse videos and searched online for ‘dead body sex’ may be an exception. Interestingly, the police did not release a ‘mug shot’ of the pervert as is usual in criminal cases nowadays.
The manager of the nail bar, Trung Hoang, of Neath Gardens, Gipton, was caught after police raided his home. Hoang, who originated from Vietnam, had thousands of indecent images of children on his electronic devices.
Police found 40 still and 1,579 moving Category A images on his computer. There were 61 still and 833 moving images under Category B, and 40 still and 924 moving images under Category C. The 26-year-old was also caught with an extreme pornographic image and a prohibited image of a child, Leeds Crown Court heard.
When questioned by the police last January, he said that during the Covid Lockdown he was sent a link on Facebook and clicked on it “out of curiosity,” which downloaded the child sex images. When the police asked Hoang about why he had searched for ‘baby sex’ and ‘dead body sex’ on his computer, he told officers “he believed they were fake scenes, and not real”.
“He said he was from Vietnam and didn’t know it was illegal to do this in the United Kingdom.”Christopher Dunn, Prosecuting.
Hoang, who has no previous convictions, was charged with three offences of making indecent images of children, one count of possessing an extreme pornographic image and one count of possessing a prohibited image of a child. He pleaded guilty to all offences on the second day of a trial.
His defence counsel, Hana Ahmed, said that he was “significantly remorseful for his actions”. She added: “He has been of good character and he was suffering with anxiety during Covid, he was in an isolated position.”
This comment angered the judge, Recorder Anthony Hawks, who said: “So were other people, but they didn’t turn to child pornography.” Judge Hawks told Hoang: “You must understand that the making of these disgusting images causes catastrophic harm to young children and by downloading and viewing those images, you were contributing to the harm yourself.”
As in many previous trials involving paedophiles (which we have drawn attention to many times before on this website), the sentence he received did not match the severity of the crime. Read our post here: Why Are Our Courts Going Soft On Perverts?
Hoang avoided immediate custody, with Judge Hawks suspending a 12-month prison sentence for two years. The defendant was also handed a sexual harm prevention order to last for 10 years. He was not recommended for deportation.
