South Australian Child ‘sex tourist’ Branded The Worst Paedophile In Nation’s History

Pure Evil, An Adelaide “child sex tourist” committed crimes that are the most serious ever heard in Australian legal history, a court has heard.

 

In what can only be described as pure evil, Ruecha Tokputza, 31, appeared in the District Court today after pleading guilty to 51 charges against 13 babies and boys over more than six years.

The crimes of the Adelaide child sex tourist are the most serious of their kind in Australian legal history, a court has heard.

Tokputza groomed Australian and Thai children for sex, and filmed the abuse to share online.

Prosecutor Heath Barklay SC told the court, “no body of comparable cases” for Tokputza’s crimes because of the multifaceted way in which he offended.

A Smile masking who can only be described as pure evil.

Mr Barklay said his actions were more serious than those of notorious Families SA paedophile Shannon McCoole, who was sentenced to 35 years in jail in 2015 for 20 offences against seven victims over the span of more than three years.

“When one contrasts the two in that way, in my submission, this matter is plainly much more serious,” Mr Barklay said.

Craig Caldicott, for Tokputza, asked Judge Liesl Chapman to hand his client a sentence that could have him released on parole after he had undergone rehabilitation.

“I would suggest that the sentence should be fashioned in such a way that it does give him some hope of eventually being released,” he said.

Tokputza was arrested following a joint investigation by Australian Federal Police, SA Police, NSW Police and Interpol.

His charges include sexual intercourse with a person under 14, aggravated assault, engaging in sexual activity with a child outside Australia and transmitting child exploitation material.

Judge Chapman will sentence Tokputza in May.
