Man jailed for possession of child porn has term extended after more images found

A MAN SERVING a sentence for possession of child pornography has had his term extended by 18 months after further images and videos recovered in the investigation were analysed.

James Clarke (62) received a ten years imprisonment with the final two years suspended in 2013 after admitting possession and distribution of child pornography. He was due for release in January.

Dublin Circuit Criminal Court heard the material in the 2013 sentencing hearing was considered so serious that it had been “fast tracked” through analysis at the Garda Cyber Crime Bureau.

The material in today’s case was also retrieved during the garda investigation into Clarke but analysis of it was delayed for a number of years because of a “backlog” at the unit.

Clarke, formerly of Devlis Cottage, Ballyhaunis, Mayo, pleaded guilty to possession of 785 images of child pornography on devices at his address in Mayo in January 2012 and 1009 images and three

Suicide prevention plan needed for child victims of ‘sextortion’ – expert

A child abuse expert has called for suicide prevention plans to be automatically put in place for young victims of webcam extortion, as she warned senior police officers that increasing numbers of children were posting explicit images online.

Daljeet Dagon of Barnardo’s Scotland warned Police Scotland’s first Violence Prevention conference in Glasgow on Wednesday: “We are underestimating how real that threat [of suicide] is. We don’t understand how embarrassing this can be for young people.”

Cases of “sextortion” – whereby criminals, often working in organised gangs, lure individuals into sending them sexually explicit images and then threaten to share them online unless they get payment – have risen dramatically over the past few years.

In many cases the victims are vulnerable teenagers, like Daniel Perry from Dunfermline, who was 17 when he fell from the Forth Bridge in July 2013 after being sexually blackmailed by a group operating from the Philippines.

Dagon,

Cyber bullying: There’s a big chance you’re unaware your child is a victim

A new study from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Department of Education revealed that 70 percent of students report seeing frequent bullying online. Another study from the University of Phoenix at the same time found that 79 percent of parents said that their children had never been a victim of cyber bullying.

“I’m thinking that possibly things are happening with our own children that we are not acknowledging or that we are aware of, and you know, cyber bullying is defined really as any unwanted communication that your child is receiving,” said Pam Roggeman, an Academic Dean at the University of Phoenix. “So, I guarantee that more students out there are receiving unwanted kinds of interaction, communication than they are taking about.”

Roggeman said parents need to monitor their child’s interactions on their phones and on social media, and document anything that could be considered cyber

Angela Reynolds’s daughter Ashley was a high school freshman in 2009 when a stranger calling himself “Captain Obvious,” with a profile that made it look like he was a teenager, messaged her through social media. He claimed to to have nude pictures of her.

Privacy and security precautions on the Dark Web haven’t kept authorities from making arrests.

This is how an online predator sets his trap. 

“He messaged me, flirting with me.” 

“It started out innocent enough, but then it got more and more sexual, and they ended up asking for pictures.”

“I know I didn’t have to, but I felt obligated to return the favor.”

“After I didn’t want to continue sending pictures, he threatened to create a Facebook page with my nudes.”

Chatting. Flirting. Preying on insecurities.
