#AceDailyNews Court Report: A Lancashire man has been jailed for repeatedly raping and sexually assaulting two young children.
Nigel Turner, 72, from Morecambe, was arrested by National Crime Agency officers in November 2021, after he distributed multiple indecent images of the children (IIOC) via an online messaging app.
Some of the images, which he shared using an account created with a false name, showed him sexually abusing one of the children.
When arresting him, officers seized his phone for analysis. On it, they found a collection of images and videos which showed he had raped and sexually assaulted two children, as well as engaging in sexual activity in front of them on multiple occasions.
Although Turner’s face cannot be seen in the images, NCA investigators were able to identify him as the suspect from clothing, jewellery and voice recognition.
He was charged with 21 offences: seven counts of raping a child under 13, three counts of sexually assaulting a child under 13, two of engaging in sexual activity in the presence of a child and 12 counts of distributing, taking and making IIOC at categories A-C (A being the most severe).
Turner pleaded guilty to all 21 charges in December last year. Yesterday [14 March 2022] he was sentenced to 20 years in prison at Preston Crown Court.
Turner was also given a lifetime Sexual Harm Prevention Order, and was put on the Sex Offenders Register for life.
Hazel Stewart, from the National Crime Agency, said:
” Turner carried out the most serious sexual abuse on these children.
“His crimes are truly incomprehensible.
“After capturing the abuse on his phone, Turner shared it with others online using a fake profile, in an attempt to mask his identity.
“Clearly he thought this would save him, but the NCA has the capabilities to disrupt offenders who use anonymisation techniques, and we are focusing those capabilities on catching the most dangerous of criminals.”
#AceDailyNews Court Report: Says a man from Southport who was jailed for raping a toddler and sexually assaulting another child has had his sentence increased to nearly 20 years.
Ryan Hawkins, 30, was identified by NCA investigators as username ‘bigladuk6’ who had been discussing the sexual abuse of children with other pedophiles online.™
In September 2021 he shared a graphic sexual image of a baby and told another user about his plans to abuse a young girl the following week.
Hawkins was arrested by NCA officers eight days later and two identical videos of him raping a toddler were found on his phone.
When interviewed, he admitted to sexually abusing the toddler on two separate occasions and to sexually assaulting another young child.
He was charged with the rape and assault of a girl under 13, sexual assault of a male under 13, two counts of making indecent images of a child (IIOC) and one of distributing IIOC.
Hawkins pleaded guilty to all the charges and was sentenced at Liverpool Crown Court to 17 years (12 years imprisonment with a 5 year extended licence) in December 2021.
Last week, the bench at the Court of Appeal in London concluded that the sentence was unduly lenient. They agreed that the rape involved extreme harm and multiple, high culpability factors, placing it within the most serious sentencing category.
As a result, his sentence was increased to 19 years and eight months (14 years and eight months imprisonment with a 5 year extended licence).
NCA operations manager Phil Eccles said: “Ryan Hawkins’ crimes are absolutely horrific.
“The fact he openly discussed the abuse with strangers on the internet shows his callous nature and the fact he had no regard of the profound impact this would have on his victims.
“He is an example of the highest risk and most dangerous sexual offenders targeted by the NCA and it is only right he is behind bars where no longer poses a threat to children.”
#AceNewsReport – Feb.06: The report focused on St Helens, Tower Hamlets, Swansea, Durham, Bristol and Warwickshire, six case study areas that have not already been the subject of well-publicised investigations of child sexual exploitation by networks. During the public hearing, the Inquiry heard harrowing evidence of child sexual exploitation by networks, including evidence in relation to more than 30 children and young people and the institutional response to exploitation of them, as well as victims and survivors, who described their experiences between 2003 and 2011.
#AceNewsDesk IICSA Report: The Child Sexual Exploitation by Organised Networks report noted there appeared to be a flawed assumption that child sexual exploitation was decreasing, when in reality it has become more of a hidden problem, increasingly underreported when only linked to other forms of criminal behaviour such as county lines.

CS-A372 was first raped in 2007 at the age of 12 by a 16-year-old boy who was prosecuted and convicted of rape. At the age of 14, she described being forced to perform oral sex on more than 20 adult men. The abuse was filmed. A number of men were charged but the charges were later dropped. She told the Inquiry how, a few months later, she was abducted by a group of men and held at gunpoint while being forced to perform oral sex on them. She was placed back in care and returned to a pattern of repeated self-harm.
Whilst it is widely recognised that alcohol, drugs and violence are often used as a means to groom and coerce children, the report finds that perpetrators are finding new ways, including through mobile phones, social media and dating apps, to groom and abuse younger children. As the Inquiry has heard in other investigations, some of the worst examples where children – including babies and infants – are live streamed for money, sometimes being sexually abused at the direction of the paying perpetrator.
The report finds that professional language around child sexual exploitation has developed over many years, which describes children being ‘at risk’ despite clear evidence of actual harm having occurred. Examples include children having contracted sexually transmitted diseases, children regularly going missing with adults who picked them up in cars late at night and children attending so-called ‘house parties’ organised by adults, where they are plied with alcohol and drugs before being sexually abused.
None of the areas examined in this investigation kept data on the ethnicity of victims and alleged perpetrators. The report highlights that this makes it impossible to know whether any particular ethnic group is over‐represented as perpetrators of child sexual exploitation by networks. The report recommends that police forces and local authorities in England and Wales must collect specific data – disaggregated by sex, ethnicity and disability – on all cases of known or suspected child sexual exploitation, including by networks.
The report emphasises that too many victims of child exploitation are treated as offenders or somehow responsible for the harms done to them, whilst the perpetrators of child sexual exploitation are often not investigated or prosecuted. More effort must be made to prosecute perpetrators effectively; the law should recognise the gravity of this particular form of abuse and its impact on children.
This report makes six recommendations, including:
The strengthening of the criminal justice system’s response by amending legislation to provide a mandatory aggravating factor in sentencing those convicted of offences relating to the sexual exploitation of children.
The Department for Education and the Welsh Government should update guidance on child sexual exploitation. This should include the identification and response to child sexual exploitation perpetrated by networks and improve the categorisation of risk and harm by local authorities and other institutions.
Police forces and local authorities in England and Wales must collect specific data – including sex, ethnicity and disability – on all cases of known or suspected child sexual exploitation, including by networks.
“The sexual exploitation of children by networks is not a rare phenomenon confined to a small number of areas with high-profile criminal cases. It is a crime which involves the sexual abuse of children in the most degrading and destructive ways, by multiple perpetrators.
“We found extensive failures by local authorities and police forces in the ways in which they tackled this sexual abuse. There appeared to be a flawed assumption that child sexual exploitation was on the wane, however it has become even more of a hidden problem and increasingly underestimated when only linked to other forms of criminal behaviour such as county lines.
“We make six recommendations which when implemented, we hope will address more effectively child sexual exploitation by organised networks.”

#AceBookDesk Five Common Themes in Children’s Writing: Contributed by Karen Cioffi, Children’s Ghostwriter
I have children’s ghostwriting clients from all over the world and below is what I’ve noticed.
Keep in mind that these clients can be doctors, therapists, dentists, teachers, parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, and business owners.
I’ve even had adult children as clients who wanted to turn their father’s story, which he used to tell them as children, into a book.
The one thing all these people have in common is they want to share something.
These people want to share their story, their idea, or their experience.
Usually, it’s to share it with the world, but once in a while it’s more personal and they just want to share it with their family and friends.
Another common thread among these people is they’re passionate about sharing their stories.
They all need to get their story out there.
I can be juggling six or seven clients a month and what I’ve noticed is that there are a few themes that keep repeating themselves.
5 Common Themes in Children’s Writing
1. Be yourself.
A lot of adults want children to know that it’s okay to be themselves. Uniqueness and individuality are big things now.
– Children don’t have to pretend to be someone they’re not. – They don’t have to follow others just to fit in. – Being unique isn’t something to be feared.
This is another strong theme. Adults want children to know they have options and help if they’re being bullied.
– Children who are being bullied are not alone. – They need to seek help if they feel overwhelmed by the bullying or if they can’t handle it. – They shouldn’t put up with any form of bullying.
Adults want children to know they’re a part of a big world. One that has all types of people in it. And to be a good citizen of the world means to accept everyone as they are.
– Children should be kind to everyone. – They should try to understand people who are different from they are. – They should show tolerance toward others. – Under the exterior, we’re all the same.
Adults want children to learn the importance of friendship.
– Children should be a good friends to have good friends. – They should learn how to make friends. – They should appreciate their friends.
5. Being a good person
This is one of the oldies. Adults want children to know what is good means. They want to show children what the consequences can be if they aren’t.
This theme can cover anything from being mean to lying, to stealing, to cheating, to not sharing, to …
Think Peter and the Wolf.
Then you have the person who simply wants to entertain children or give them a glimpse into what their life was like growing up.
Some professionals want to help children through stories.
Others may have a passion for a subject and want to kindle that passion in children.
Everyone has their reasons for wanting to have their story written.
And, of those who want to be authors of their own children’s book, many don’t have the necessary writing skills or time to write. These are the ones who are willing to invest in their dream of becoming a published author.

There are many people in the world who are broken children and never realized their true potential or their value. Perhaps they were abused at home or bullied in school. Maybe some jealous bully in their lives made it their mission to bring these people down because their confidence was a threat to the bully’s […]
#AceNewsReport – Dec.07: Stephen James Porter, 51, pleaded guilty to the offences but is disputing some aspects of the charges: He was initially charged with multiple offences and pleaded guilty to three of them earlier this year….
#AceDailyNews says according to local media report a former ‘Ainslie Football Club’ coach Stephen Porter sends himself to jail to start sentence for child sex abuse ABC News Report:
#AceHistoryReport – Dec.03: This enabled the state to intervene, for the first time, in relations between parents and children. Police could arrest anyone found ill-treating a child, and enter a home if a child was thought to be in danger.
#AceHistoryDesk Child Protection Timeline: From 1889 – 2005: The act included guidelines on the employment of children and outlawed begging according to Guardian Society News By David Batty Report:
Kindness & Love❤️ says Blessed Little Children Come Unto Me Amen
The act was amended and extended. It allowed children to give evidence in court, mental cruelty was recognised and it became an offence to deny a sick child medical attention.
The Children’s Act 1908 established juvenile courts and introduced the registration of foster parents. The Punishment of Incest Act made sexual abuse within families a matter for state jurisdiction rather than intervention by the clergy.
The Children and Young Persons Act 1932 broadened the powers of juvenile courts and introduced supervision orders for children at risk. The following year, a further act brought together all existing child protection law into a single piece of legislation.
The Children Act 1948 established a children’s committee and a children’s officer in each local authority. It followed the creation of the parliamentary care of children committee in 1945 following the death of 13-year-old Dennis O’Neill at the hands of his foster parents.
Under the 1968 Social Work (Scotland) Act, local authority social work depart-ments replaced children, welfare, health and probation committees. Local authorities also took over responsibility for investigating child abuse.
Under the Local Authority Social Services Act 1970, councils’ social work services and social care provisions, including those for children, were amalgamated into social services departments.
The inquiry into the death of Maria Cowell at the hands of her stepfather highlighted a serious lack of coordination among services responsible for child welfare. Its report led to the development of area child protection committees (ACPCs) in England and Wales, which coordinate local efforts to safeguard children at risk.
The Children Act 1989 gave every child the right to protection from abuse and exploitation and the right to inquiries to safeguard their welfare. Its central tenet was that children are usually best looked after within their family. The act came into force in England and Wales in 1991 and – with some differences – in Northern Ireland in 1996.
Staff guidance on working together under the Children Act required ACPCs to conduct an investigation to establish whether child protection procedures were followed when child abuse is suspected or confirmed to be the cause of a child’s death. Updated in 1999.
The Children (Scotland) Act incorporated the three key principles of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child into Scottish law: protection from discrimination, ensuring that child welfare is a primary concern and listening to children’s views.
The Protection of Children Act 1999 was passed, aiming to prevent paedophiles from working with children. It requires childcare organisations in England and Wales to inform the Department of Health about anyone known to them who is suspected of harming children or putting them at risk. A similar act was passed in Scotland in 2003.
Then Scottish education minister Jack McConnell (below) ordered a review of child protection in Scotland following the inquiry into the murder of three-year-old Kennedy McFarlane. An audit published the following year found that half of all children at risk of abuse and neglect in the country fail to receive adequate protection. Two years later, the Scottish executive published a children’s charter, setting out how carers and professionals should protect and respect their rights.
In January, Lord Laming published his report into the death of child abuse victim Victoria Climbié, which found that health, police and social services missed 12 opportunities to save her. Margaret Hodge is appointed the first children’s minister in June. In September, a government green paper, Every Child Matters, proposed an electronic tracking system for England’s children; 150 children’s trusts to be set up by 2006, amalgamating health, education and social services; a children’s director to oversee local services; statutory local safeguarding children boards to replace ACPCs; and a children’s commissioner for England.
The Children Act 2004, which pushes forward the main proposals of the green paper – electronic children’s files; children’s directors; and a children’s commissioner – is passed by parliament. But it allows local authorities more flexibility in organising their children’s services, with the amalgamation of education and social services no longer mandatory. Councils are also given another two years to set up children’s trusts.
Professor Al Aynsley Green is appointed as England’s first children’s commissioner. Former Home Office minister Beverley Hughes replaces Margaret Hodge as minister for children. Former education secretary Estelle Morris is appointed to oversee the government’s reform of the children’s services workforce.
