A student from Eton College was found with more than 2,000 indecent images of kids and inspired them to strip for him on webcam.
Andrew Picard was 17 years old at the time, and he was cited for making pornographic images of children at the renowned private educational school near Windsor, Berkshire.
Attired in a suit with a blue lined tie, Andrew entered a plea to 12 counts of child molestation.
The revolting instance of pedophilia by Eton undergraduate Andrew Picard who took photos of kids as young as two, being sexually violated and coerced into acts of bestiality has sourced indignation.
In spite of being found guilty of making and downloading 2,000 pedophile pictures, he was allowed to walk unimpeded by sicko judge, Peter Ross, because he’d been working through his problems with doctors.
Scumbag Peter Ross, what a joke, and of course, many judges are pedophiles too and work in the secret courts of law, where thousands of children are purloined each month by the state from innocent parents.
These children often go missing and are not allowed to stay in touch with their parents. In fact, have the police force even tracked down the several hundred victims that Picard filmed whilst they were being abused?
Who were they and how the hell did he find them all?
In yet another offensive travesty of justice, Andrew Picard was allowed to use his mother’s maiden name of Picard during his trial.
Nevertheless, the former Eton College student avoided jail despite making and sharing shocking indecent pictures of youngsters and bestiality film snips.
Andrew Picard, from Westminster, London, was found with more than 2,000 lewd pictures of minors on his PC at the popular school near Windsor, Berkshire.
The 18-year-old son of a top lawyer sat in his college room sharing the photos in chat rooms and was just 17 when he was discovered sharing material with a covert police officer.
Picard, who was arrested at Eton after his IP address was hunted down, and he owned up to ten counts of child indecency, and at Oxford Crown Court was given a ten-month prison term, suspended for 18 months.
He was let off getting a prison sentence after being lauded for his work with doctors in the past year to address his offence, but, this was declared a fringe benefit of his advantaged position.
The violations dated from January to February last year when Andrew Picard made pornographic pictures of children and shared them through chat messages on Skype.
Myriads of pictures and snips were found on Andrew Picard’s PC and hard drive that showed acts so revolting that Judge Peter Ross could not bring himself to describe them. Others revealed children as young as two being sexually raped and coerced into having sex with dogs.
The covert officer joined a teen chatroom, for those aged between 13 and 19 years, on February 9, 2015, when he was contacted by a user named ‘AP16MUK’, standing for Andrew Picard, aged 16, male, from the United Kingdom.
Andrew Picard communicated with the covert officer inquiring if he wanted to view images of boys and girls his age, naked? Boasting of having hundreds of videos, Picard added the officer on Skype and shared dirty pictures of a boy aged ten and girls aged eight and 14 years.
Asking the covert officer for proof that he was aged 14 years as he stated and not some old man, Andrew Picard finally shared a video of his own appearance.
His IP address directed police to the Eton school in Berkshire where the staff was able to identify him as a student. He was then taken into custody from school on suspicion of distributing indecent images of kids.
Andrew Picard admitted one count of possessing vulgar images of children, one count of making indecent photographs of children and eight counts of distributing lewd photos or recordings of a child. Detectives obtained 1,185 indecent photographs and videos on his PC and on hard-drives taken from his school room.
They further discovered chat accounts from the chatrooms where Picard bragged about the quality of his videos and asked users who claimed to be as young as 14 to trade naked shots of themselves for improper videos he would provide.
It was this style of Andrew Picard’s offending where he would post photographs in revenue for the user to strip, showing him their underarm or crotch. There are exacerbating features where the kids are very young, in apparent torment and torture, and where a number of pictures were shared.
Dressed in jeans, trainers, and a navy jumper, brown-haired Andrew Picard pressed his eyes shut as Judge Peter Ross described some of the offensive Category A material discovered in his possession.
One of his videos showed a girl as young as three being sexually violated, whilst others revealed young children being made to have sex with dogs.
Sallie Bennett-Jenkins, QC related her client’s sincere regret and steered to the excellent work he had been doing with doctors in the past year, undergoing regular therapy with several doctors and therapists.
This was a young and very smart individual who hoped for a future. He was able to have this opportunity to solicit help and this was something Andrew solicited for himself, by himself.
Of course, he sought this for himself, because he was aware that if he didn’t he would either go to prison or an extremely high psychiatric unit at some institution. Therefore, he endeavored for the lesser option, that way he could look apologetic and keen to change his ways, essentially like a payoff.
Furthermore, it did pay off, the judge let it slide with a suspended sentence when this sick degenerate should have been given a prison sentence and it simply proves how corruptible people can be when they should be harsher when giving out punishment to such a sick person.
Saving Andrew Picard from jail, Judge Ross announced that a term of incarceration would destroy the excellent work he had done in the past year undergoing extensive counseling.
Picard should be in isolated confinement, just so that he can ponder on what he did to these poor children, and how this will affect them for the rest of their life. Has nobody given a thought about how this will affect these children, or does nobody care?
There being will never be the same, they have been burgled of a childhood that should have been a functioning pleasure and not the application of a sexual nature. There is a line you never cross when it comes to kids, there is no permission for this kind of sickness, whether it be with children or adults that do not give their consent.
Still, this man has been allowed to go free with some suspended sentence simply because he went to a shrink and talked about his difficulties like he was the victim, and that makes it all right. Is it okay that these kids have to go through their whole life reliving the moments for the rest of their lives?
It was stated that the accused Andrew Picard was a privileged young person, and his parents were definitely wealthy enough to send him to school at Eton. Furthermore, how he found his way into this disturbing environment, the cosmos of chat rooms and trading this material, was not understandable.
There are lines that children should have when joining the cosmos of the world wide web, and that’s parent control. There are blocks for parents and schools to utilize so that their children do not use these kinds of sites, however, the stumbling block is that parents and teachers don’t always bother to make use of those restrictions and boundaries.
Simply because some people have money and are rich does not indicate that their children are inaccessible to the dangers of society, whether they be an outside force and power, but also through the web as well, both are just as bad.
Maybe we shouldn’t be too discordant on Andrew Picard, however, nobody put a shooting iron to his head. However, his parents and teachers should have been more mindful of what was going on in the life of this young man, particularly when using a PC.
What should bother us more is what was going on in this adolescent boy’s head when he was doing this kind of stuff, surely he must have realized in his head that it was illegal and morally depraved? Furthermore, if he did not realize it was wrong, will he in the future go onto other more dangerous stuff?
