This case is absolutely staggering. This demented crafty paedophile dubbed as 'Britains worst ever peadophile' is only 30 years old, for some reason this makes it even more creepy, as you know these child molesters are often caught in later stages in life and the number of their victims always make you gasp in disbeleif but the extent and the number of this creeps victims at a young age himself has to be a unique one in all the anals of true crime. At least he is caught. And he has left a trail of damaged children in his pathway. Again, showing no remorse after sentencing is handed down. Seems to me that anyone capable of this is incapable of any feelings other than sexual gratification. If you had this going inside of you I would wish I were dead.
Maybe some inmates wishes will come true as his life will be finished and unbearable. I really hope he suffers. Will there ever be a time when these people feel shame or guilt? I suppose some might but it puzzles me they only ever find it when they find faith in God, whatever happened to finding it in your heart.............
'A thousand deaths is too good for you!' Shouts from the public gallery as judge hands Britain's worst paedophile who abused hundreds of Malaysian children 22 life sentences with at least 25 years in jail
Richard Huckle posed as devout Christian and English teacher to win trust
He then abused up to 200 children in care home and orphanages in region
Paedophile's nine-year reign of terror ended when he was arrested in UK
Judge says the predator's 'life revolved' around his sexual obsessions
Britain's worst paedophile who abused up to 200 Malaysian children and posted videos of his depraved acts online has been given 22 life sentences.
Richard Huckle, from Ashford in Kent, admitted an unprecedented number of offences against children aged between six months and 12 years from 2006 to 2014.
Judge Peter Rook QC told him: 'You had become consumed with paedophilia. Your life revolved around your obsession with your own sexual gratification'.
Huckle, aged 30, will serve a minimum 25 years behind bars before being considered for parole.
As Huckle was taken down to the cells, a woman sitting in the public gallery yelled: 'A thousand deaths is too good for you.'
Richard Huckle - branded Britain's worst paedophile for abusing hundreds of Malaysian children - has been given 23 life sentences and ordered to serve a minimum 25 years behind bars
A woman, who cannot be identified, shouted at Huckle as he was taken to the cells to begin his sentence
Huckle masqueraded as a devout Christian, photographer and English teacher to prey on poor children in Kuala Lumpur over nine years.
A stream of pictures and videos of his rapes and assaults on children were shared with paedophiles worldwide through an encrypted website.
He even tried to make a business out of his horrific crimes by crowd-funding the release of the images and was compiling a paedophile's manual at the time of his arrest by the National Crime Agency.
The judge said he would be a 'significant risk for many years to come', adding: 'there is no genuine remorse in this case'.
The judge told Huckle: 'You were and are sexually obsessed with children. You have spent years abusing them. In one of your postings you stated that you had become consumed by your paedophilia.
'It is clear from your postings on hidden encrypted paedophile websites on the dark web, and from the manual you were in the process of drafting, that your life revolved around your obsession with your own sexual gratification by child sex abuse.
'It is also clear that, had you not been arrested, you planned to continue the same lifestyle using the expertise that you were keen to show off to and share with other abusers so as to continue your sexual exploitation of the children of such communities.'
Huckle, described as a 'loner', held his hands together as if praying when he was sentenced today
Huckle wrote online that poverty-stricken children in developing countries were much easier to abuse
The judge told Huckle a paedophile manual he had written was a 'truly evil document'.
He said: 'It speaks volumes about the scale of your self delusion, describing your conduct as child love. Furthermore, it appears as though your conduct was escalating.'
Twenty three children were identified in 71 charges, although Huckle's tally of abuse which he catalogued on a 'Pedopoints' ledger was much higher.
The aggravating features of the case included the sheer number of vulnerable children affected, the depravity of the acts, and the length of time he carried on.
His commitment was demonstrated in his efforts to make money by crowd funding videos of his abuse of a three year old girl.
He even cast himself as a trailblazer and encouraged other paedophiles to follow his example in the guide to abusing children in poverty which was to be posted online.
Huckle was brought up in a comfortable middle class Christian household but had shunned the company of other children and spent most of his teenage years at home on his computer.
The predator had been on his way home to spend the festive season with his parents in Ashford when the National Crime Agency swooped to arrest him on information from authorities in Australia.
Richard Huckle raped in orphanages and care homes in Malaysia and Cambodia. Here is pictured at India's New Hope for Children Orphanage, but is not believed to have abused orphans living there
Having been bailed on condition he stay at his parents' house, he confessed to his mother what he had been doing.
His parents immediately begged police to take him away and were even prepared to give evidence against him in a trial.
Huckle first began abusing children as soon as he reached adulthood when he molested a toddler during a gap year in Cambodia.
Thus began his nine-year campaign of rape and assault against up to 200 pre-pubescent children as young as six months old.
Huckle awarded himself points based on 15 depraved catagories, amassing a score of 1,305 between November 2013 and November 2014.
He dreamed of marrying one of his victims so they could become foster carers to provide him with a 'cycle of children' to abuse.
Although there was no evidence that he committed any crimes in Britain, Huckle cultivated his image of a devoutly religious philanthropist at home and abroad.
National Crime Agency admits it knew Huckle was abusing children in Christian orphanages for THREE MONTHS before telling Malaysian police
Huckle was caught after Australian authorities tipped off the British NCA. The NCA then informed Malaysian authorities three months later
The National Crime Agency has admitted it waited three months before telling Malaysian authorities all it knew about Richard Huckle.
The crime-fighting force has been criticised for failing to alert police in Malaysia, with one minister insisting she only found out about the case a month ago.
Speaking outside the Old Bailey, deputy director Andrew Brennan admitted police were first tipped off about the Briton's offending by the Australian authorities in August 2014.
But he said the NCA needed to identify where and who Huckle was before providing the Malaysian police with 'all of the intelligence' in November 2014.
'They didn't have sufficient evidence to arrest him, we made a decision we would arrest him in December 2014,' said Mr Brennan.
'I'm very confident we worked very, very closely with the Malaysian authorities and an NGO based in Malaysia.'
Mr Brennan also insisted there is 'absolutely no evidence' or intelligence of Huckle offending in the UK.
'I think the level of offending Huckle has committed himself to is quite unique,' he said.
'Huckle is an individual who is clearly very, very dangerous. There is no doubt the sentence reflected the deterent for anyone else who who wishes to engage in this activity.'
James Traynor, from the NCA said: 'Richard Huckle spent several years integrating himself into the community in which he lived, making himself a trusted figure. But he abused that trust in the worst possible way.
'He deliberately travelled to a part of the world where he thought he could abuse vulnerable children without being caught.
'The NCA worked to track down Huckle and end his prolific abuse, using Section 72 legislation in this case, which allows UK nationals to be prosecuted in the UK for offences that have been committed overseas.
'Borders are no barrier- we are determined that those who go abroad to abuse children will be held to account.'
