Sexual Attraction-Indulge yourself in the Pleasures of the flesh



A British woman and four men have been found guilty of various offences for their part in an international paedophile ring that committed “horrific” crimes against two young children in Britain and one in Australia.

Melissa Noon and the four other defendants were convicted at Portsmouth Crown Court of a total of 16 offences.

The charges related to the abuse in Britain of two young children by the ring, which used a nudist website as a guise for their perversions.

A further four defendants, including Noon’s partner and ringleader Robert Hathaway, previously pleaded guilty to numerous charges.

Police launched an investigation into the ring after being tipped off by authorities in Australia who had uncovered a “mirror image” ring here, which also abused a young child.

Hathaway had been in contact with this ring and shared images with its members. One of the charges faced by Noon was her encouraging the Australian child to engage in sexual activity.

A total of 2000 pages of chat logs were uncovered by police as well as 14,000 indecent images of children and 300 videos of children being abused.

The abuse included offences of rape and sexual assault as well as forcing the children to engage in naked games of Twister and wrestling.

Detective Inspector Victoria Dennis, senior investigating officer, said: “This case is one of the most horrific incidents of child abuse I have ever investigated.”

Kerry Maylin, prosecuting, said after the case: “This was a horrific case of systematic child abuse where the defendants subjected children as young as four to atrocious acts of sexual abuse and encouraged others across the world to commit similar offences.”

The jury of six women and six men took more than 13 hours to reach the verdicts.

The five found guilty on Wednesday were Noon, 30, Daniel Bell, 27, Simon Hilton, 29, Mark Day, 45, and John Maddox, 47.

A further four – Hathaway, 36, Stephen Fraser, 41, Lee Parson, 38, and Jonathan Garner-Harris, 37 – have already pleaded guilty.

Judge Roger Hetherington adjourned the case until December 19 for sentencing, with Bell, Maddox and Day likely to be sentenced separately on a date to be set in January.

He remanded Noon and Hilton in custody and released Bell, Maddox and Day on bail.

He ordered the defendants to sign the sex offenders’ register.
