Ryan Suttle has pleaded guilty to child prostitution, production and collecting child exploitation material and a host of other charges.
Facebook, snapchat and Instagram, how often have we heard about these social media platforms being used as a predators hunting grounds.
This case is no different with Ryan Suttle, 26 from the Illawarra region of N.S.W, using these platforms to find underage teenage girls, harass them and turn them into child prostitutes by offering them money to perform various sexual assaults on the girls all of which he would film.
Of course he would then turn those crime scene videos into child exploitation material which he would then use against the girls to get them to do more horrendous acts. Initially he was released on bail, however his victims came forward and said he had continiued to interact with them which caused his bail to be revoked. He has been behind bars now for almost a year.
Suttle had racked up 45 charges against 9 victims, 7 of the victims had been identified and come forward. 2 victims sadly are yet to be identified. He was initially charged with 86 offences in total, however admitted to 45 of them in a plea bargain struck with the Director of Public Prosecutions.
He will formally be sentenced on 23 charges, with the remaining 22 to be taken into account to determine the objective seriousness at sentencing. The other 41 charges were withdrawn. I have to say Suttle got the good end of this deal by a long way ! Who approved this deal ? 86 charges and he is only facing 23 ? With a further 22 to be taken into account.
Once again it seems our DPP has given away justice for a guilty plea. STOP DOING THAT !
Make him face all 86 of the charges against him ! Stop sacrificing the victim’s justice for your win/loss record….that’s pathetic and unfair! You are meant to be the defenders of the public, so now…. defend the public !
Included in the charges for which Suttle will be sentenced are four counts of using a child aged 14 to 18 for child prostitution, involving two victims. The charges carried a maximum jail term of 10 years. Meanwhile, prosecutors said facts were yet to be agreed on in all but one set of charges, which relate to Suttle filming teenage girls performing sexual acts.
The fact sheet says police discovered three child porn videos stored in Suttle’s phone when they seized it as part of his arrest. One video, shot on February 11, 2017 in North Wollongong, shows an unidentified girl masturbating Suttle, while two others shot the day beforehand show another underage girl performing lewd acts with a banana and ice block.
This was included in our report to highlight Suttle’s depravity and control over these girls. They are not even slightly to blame here and anyone doing so will have their comments deleted and will be banned should they push the point.
Suttle is a master manipulator, he has perfectly crafted his game, from the moment they first reject his advances all the way to when he wears them down and gets what he wants through the use of blackmail, guilt, money and anything else he can use to break these girls down.
Ryan Suttle should face Wollongong court next month sometime. We can only hope he is put behind for at least 10 years. We would love to see him locked up for the rest of his natural life for what he did to these girls, it is absolutely horrendous and abhorrent.
Let this be a warning to parents and carers everywhere about just how very important it is to monitor your children’s social media accounts ! It’s not snooping, it’s protecting your children from predators like Suttle and it is good parenting to be aware of who your child talks to and what they are saying.
