Crimes: Pedophile, Rape, Child Porn, Sexual Assault, Child Abuse

John Bidmead, a retired lorry driver from Cullompton, Devon, UK, must be a record holder. His achievement isn’t laudable, or admirable in any way. What John Bidmead managed to do was accumulate over one million images and movies of child pornography. That’s right — over one million! That’s gotta be a record.

Just how much of John Bidmead’s life was dedicated to this despicable hobby, I wonder. The pedo perv did admit to spending a decade collecting it.

It was the work of Russian investigators that led to the eventual arrest of John Bidmead. They had tracked his IP address downloading extreme child pornography from a file-sharing website, and tipped off their counterparts in Devon. Kudos to the Russian investigators!

Devon police organized a raid on John Bidmead’s home on Rull Lane in Cullompton. Even as the police were entering his property, warrant in hand, the pedo perv was downloading 99 child porn movies on his 50″ TV monitor! Talk about getting caught with your pants down!

Apparently, when John Bidmead was arrested, he admitted he was caught “bang to rights”. Damn straight he was!

John Bidmead was released on bail while his computers were forensically examined. Holy crap, that was a helluva job! There was so much child porn material on the bastard’s computers that the investigators spent months and months documenting it, and still had only gotten through just over half. The decision was made to prioritize.

By the time the police gave up inventorying the massive amount of child porn, they had counted over 640,000 images.

To be more precise, there were 576,288 images and 8071 movies depicting naked children, 6007 images and 1289 movies depicting children engaged in less serious sexual activity, 28,888 images and 1235 movies depicting adults having sex with children, 19,297 images and 3480 movies depicting child rape, and 1450 images and 167 movies depicting torture, sadism or bestiality.

I can’t begin to imagine the effect that must have had on the investigators. Seriously, the thought of having to view one movie of child torture or rape sickens me. Those investigators had to view thousands of them, day after day, week after week, month after month. They cannot be praised enough, IMO, for doing their jobs. The whole ordeal must have cost them peace of mind at the very least.

So, yes, there were hundreds of thousands of child porn files on John Bidmead’s computers. That fact is ghastly enough, but investigators found something even more horrific. They discovered videos that John Bidmead made of himself raping and abusing 2 young girls! The girls were 8 and 10 years old. One girl appeared in 124 movies.

John Bidmead is not only a collector of child porn, he is a predatory pedophile who defiles young girls!

The Devon investigators also discovered 1500 files containing images of 4 other girls that were taken by John Bidmead himself. Holy shitballs, batman! This bastard is a true hellbeast!

The girls who were photographed were between 8 and 12 years of age. They had been bribed with money, sweets and treats to pose.

The police tracked down one of the victims who had been filmed being raped by the bastard. The girl told investigators how she was groomed by John Bidmead, and she has said, “I now find it difficult to trust people and I feel upset, angry and confused.” Bless her heart, I hope she’s getting all the support and therapy she needs.

After months of investigation, charges were laid against the disgusting pedophile. In November 2013, when he appeared in Exeter Crown Court, John Bidmead pled guilty to 4 rapes and 2 indecent or sexual assaults on one girl, and 2 sexual assaults on a second girl. Those crimes had taken place between 2001 and 2007.

In addition, the pedo perv pled guilty to 11 counts of taking indecent photographs and movies, and 8 counts of making indecent photographs or movies.

On November 26, 2013, the 65-year-old bastard was sentenced. The defense attorney told the judge, “He entirely accepts that he has betrayed all his family and his friends and in particular the victims of his own offending. He told the probation officer that what he had done was shameful and he expects to die in prison. He said he deserves whatever punishment he is given.

The attorney went on to say, “He expresses to Your Honour, to the probation officer and to the psychiatrist deep regret and shame – powerless to do anything about what he has done by way of rectification.

β€œOn behalf of the defendant I invite Your Honour to impose a sentence that both he and his victims would like and expect, which is a very long sentence in custody to represent that he has destroyed the lives of several people and in the process destroyed his own life.”

Judge Phillip Wassail said to the pedophile, “The magnitude of the number of images is quite staggering. You had more than a million images of children being abused, including significantly high numbers of images of the worst type of abuse.”

The judge described the case as “quite appalling”, and noted the police investigation was “exhaustive and debilitating”. Judge Wassail was certainly right about that!

The judge sentenced John Bidmead to 19 years in prison. He was made subject of a sexual offences prevention order (do those really work?) and placed on the sex offenders registry for the rest of his worthless life.

I really, truly hope that John Bidmead doesn’t live to see freedom again. I hope he cries every night in his cell.

And I really, truly hope that all of the victims of this POS pedophile can breathe easier knowing he’s been locked up, and can receive all the help they need to live happy, successful lives.

    Nasty pervert. I’ll bet dollars to donuts that he has dozens of victims he’s raped over the years. Thank goodness he was stupid enough to film himself. I wonder if he shared his homemade videos with fellow pedophiles on those file sharing sites. That would be terrible for the girls knowing that other monsters like this beast are getting their thrills from watching them.

    Cleo…well written article but would like to point out that there is no such thing as child porn…it is child abuse. Child pornography cannot exist, but ABUSE certainly can.

    No cleo, those sexual prevention orders are not worth a wank, excuse my language. They basically mean that he won’t be allowed to work with children, or be in the vicinity of children which is fair enough, but that’s if people know about them, and because of the human shite brigade, its against their human rights*snort* what about the rights of those children, the rights of children when this turd gets out in 9years because that’s when he will be released. No wonder scotland didn’t want to be part of the union anymore, can you blame them when we have kermet the frog, fozzy bear and miss piggy running the country. Instead of sopo’s(sexual prevention orders) why not just lock sick bastards like this up for life, that way they can’t abuse and rape children anymore, and then they can have their arse raped for eternity in jail by his new boyfriends.
