Couple accused of sexually abusing adopted Russian boy for years
Couple accused of sexually abusing adopted Russian boy for years
An American pedophile has been convicted to 40 years in prison for years of sexual abuse of adopted Russian boy. His boyfriend from New Zealand who allegedly assisted in meticulously recording acts of sexual offence is going on trial at home.
Two members of the pedophile porn exchange ring Boy Lovers network, Mark J. Newton, 42 and his long-term partner Peter Truong, 36, were busted in 2011 on suspicion that they were sexually molesting their son, born to Russian mother in 2005.
A US judge in Indianapolis has imposed maximum sentence on American-born Mark J. Newton, 42, for sexual exploit of a minor and conspiracy to possess child pornography. Newton is also obliged to pay $400,000 in compensation to the boy’s account.
Newton’s boyfriend Peter Truong, 36, awaits court in New Zealand.
US District Judge Sarah Evans Barker explained that Mark Newton was tried at district court level to save a jury from seeing the images produced by the defendants.
“‘What can be said? What can be done to erase some of the horror of this?’’ Judge Barker said while handing down her sentence, sharing a belief that the pair deserved a stricter punishment.
‘‘Personally ... I think this is probably one of the worst [pedophile] rings ... if not the worst ring I’ve ever heard of,’’ investigator Brian Bone of the US Postal Inspection Service told reporters outside the US Federal Courtroom.
“Russian orphans always attracted foreign perverts because of accessibility. The foreigners were simply coming and taking children for money,” Russian Ombudsman for Children’s Rights Pavel Astakhov told RT.
Russia has recently adopted two laws on adoption of Russian children by foreign families. In December 2012, Russia adopted the ‘Dima Yakovlev Law’ banning American citizens from adopting Russian children. In June 2013, The State Duma passed an amendment that bans the adoption of Russian children by same-sex couples from abroad.
“In forbidding foreign adoptions we put a barrier against scoundrels,” Astakhov said, pointing out that he knows a number of similar cases when foreigners adopted children with solely sexual intent.
Astakhov told RT that the rehabilitation process for the boy, currently adopted by another American family, will take a long time. He noted that according to Russian law an adopted child remains a Russian citizen until lawful age and promised to closely follow boy’s life in the new family.
To avoid future harm to the child, the investigators named the boy ‘Adam’ in all official documents.
Astakhov stressed that he fully trusts the American specialists responsible for Adam’s rehabilitation.
“International cooperation in the sphere of struggle against pedophiles gives Russia an opportunity to identify, expose and punish the criminals, protect children,” he said.
The story of ‘Adam’
Reportedly, starting from 2002, the gay couple of Newton and Truong attempted to find a surrogate mother to give birth to their child. Having failed to find a surrogate mother in the US, where both were working at the time as computer experts, the pair finally found a woman in Russia who gave birth to their child for a fee of $8,000. Mark Newton is believed to be the biological father of the boy dubbed ‘Adam’.
Adam was handed over to Newton and Truong a mere five days after his birth in 2005.
Newton and Truong gave media interviews as a gay couple with an adopted child, stating that their son was born to a Russian surrogate mother they found on the internet.
“Being a father was an honor and a privilege that amounted to the best six years of my life,” Newton told the court minutes before his sentence was announced.
At the age of 22 months, Adam was sexually abused by his ‘adoptive parents’ for the first time. After that he was abused on a daily basis. The ‘parents’ took photos and video recorded practically everything they did to him...
Shocking Child Molestation Story
In 2010, the Australian press, as in thrall to the homosexual community as our ignorant, sycophantic America press is, told the foolishly titled story “Two dads are better than one,” about a homosexual couple who went to Russia to adopt a child. These “fathers” described the obstacles they faced in trying to find a surrogate in the U.S. and the scrutiny they faced when they returned to Australia with their child, all because of the suspicions of authorities who feared that two homosexual men might be pedophiles. The article concluded with this heartwarming quote: “’We’re a family just like any other family,’ [one of the fathers] said with pride.”
Fast forward to 2013. One of these two proud and ostensibly loving fathers, U.S.-Australian citizen Mark J. Newton was just convicted in an Indiana court of “conspiracy to sexually exploit a minor and conspiracy to possess child pornography” and sentenced to 40 years in prison. Newton’s partner Peter Truong awaits trial on similar charges.
Multiple news reports state that there is video of one of the “fathers” performing a sex act on their son when he was two-weeks old. In addition, these men made their son sexually available from age 2-6 to at least eight other men in three countries. They also videotaped these sick crimes, posting the videos on the homosexual pedophile website “Boy Lovers Network.”
This story follows the 2012 story of Kenneth Brandt who adopted three boys and a girl and then raped and prostituted the boys.
And the Brandt story follows the 2011 story of “married” Connecticut couple George Harasz and Douglas Wirth who adopted nine boys, five of whom have accused the men of raping them.
I’m going to make the wildly politically incorrect statement that the male homosexual community has a serious problem with pedophilia, including its various incarnations like hebephilia and ephebophilia. To the uninitiated, those terms refer to the predator’s favored age of prey.
The Catholic Church’s sex abuse scandal was primarily homosexual in nature. In other words, all of the predators were male and the vast majority of their victims were male.
The Boys Scouts of America sex abuse scandal revealed in 2012 was entirely homosexual in nature, which is to say, male predators were preying on male children and teens.
Though male homosexuals constitute between 3-4 percent of the population, multiple reports suggest they commit a statistically higher rate of sexual abuse than do heterosexuals.
And let’s not forget that in virtually every society in history that accepted homosexuality, the dominant form was between adult males and pubescent boys. If you have a spare minute and a strong stomach, wander around a “gay” website. You will see photo upon photo of youthful, hairless boys who appear to be teens.
Sexual crimes against children are certainly not limited to the homosexual community. And I’m not arguing that all homosexuals are pedophiles. I am arguing, rather, that the homosexual community is not immune to the infection of pedophilia—or what some euphemistically refer to with the neologism “minor-attraction,” which to “minor-attracted persons” is just another “sexual orientation.” (And “sexual orientation” is itself a euphemism concocted to efface the difference between rightly ordered sexual impulses that are consonant with biology and anatomy and disordered sexual impulses that result in sterility and disease because they oppose biology and anatomy).
It just may be true that the community that pridefully celebrates that which is worthy of shame has an even more serious perversion problem than just the sexual desire of men for men.
I wonder if the poor little Russian boy whose mother sold him for 8,000 pieces of silver to evil men who used him as their sex toy will grow up to be sexually attracted to men. Oh wait, that can’t happen because the homosexual community says they’re “born that way.”
For multiple reasons children should not be placed in the homes of homosexuals. First, homosexual acts are inherently immoral. Second, there is evidence that many homosexuals find nothing problematic about sex between adult males and minors of diverse ages. Third, homosexual couples are more unstable than heterosexual couples. Fourth, for many male homosexual couples, fidelity does not include sexual monogamy. And finally, children have an inherent right to be raised by a mother and father—roles that Barack Obama has publicly declared are essential to the lives of children even as he incoherently declares his support for a form of marriage that necessarily presupposes the expendability of either mothers or fathers.
Just what we needed: two repulsive sub-animal creatures giving homophobes ammunition to increase their virulent attacks against the gay community. Adoption for gay couples is a VERY sensitive issue already. We don't need a ring of immoral things making it even more difficult for the rest of us by destroying a poor little child's life just so that they can get their twisted, sick jollies.
I hope that they are directly drawn and quartered (the hanging part would alleviate their suffering). Scum like this don't deserve to live.
The kid was not "adopted." Newton was the biological father. So this story has NO relevance to Russian decisions on adoption.
You dumbass. RT is the propaganda organ of Russian government.
It's their Volkischer Beobachter
WoW, that's a horribly disgusting story.
Straight people molest adopted children too. It's a kind of person that will always be attracted to availability, and all people offering adoptions have always known this. There is no reason whatever to single out gays.
R8, True. Remember the horrible story of the single American dad who adopted a little Russian girl? He lied about having a wife/girlfriend. He gifted her with a trip to Disneyworld, where he molested her. Luckily the FBI found the vid, posted online, and someone recognized the hotel room. That's how he got caught, and she got rescued.
That's terrible. These kids just want a loving home and deserve to have just that.
Hello! I was molested by my straight (male and female) adoptive parents for over 11 years in my childhood! Does that mean all straights should not be allowed to adopt? Jeezus H. Christ! This world is so fucked up. People suck!
That's how people think about the 'other.' When you are an other, if a member of your group does something bad it's as if you did it yourself. So because some gay men have done this, it means it's something we all would do, wish to do or have done. Therefore, we can't be trusted around children.
True, R12. But those people are for the most part uneducated with very low intelligence. It's simply not logical to conclude that members of the same group are exactly the same. It just isn't logical and there is no way around that. I have faith that most people aren't such primitive thinkers. And yes this story is very disturbing. I hope the little boy fully recovers from this.
This story is not news R14, dimwit. It is something that happened years ago that RT is trotting out in order to justify Russian government bigotry. Now that gays are in the military and have access to nuclear weapons it would be nice if some gay pilot were to accidentally nuke Sochi when Putin is there.
It's not like Russia would go to war over that would be gangsta buffoon.
Right, R15, I'm a dimwit yet you can't comprehend the this story is about the sentencing of the couple involved. I couldn't care less about your babble about conspiracies. Your post isn't even relevant to mine.
R5 really? Is rt flat out lying about him being adopted?
Stop posting this shit here. No one fucking cares.
Read the story R18. It says Newton is the biological father. If you are the biological father you don't need to "adopt" the child.
R20 adopted is in the title of the story.
How come heterosexuals don't get blamed for the innumerable pedophiles, murderers, and rapists in their ranks? Do you really think people like that live openly and share their sick acts with normal people?
Why aren't straight people looked at sideways for all the porn that features hairless teen girls with schoolgirl or cheerleader outfits?
Unlike gay and lesbian pornography, straight pornography considers pubic hair to be a fetish.
The story says "US District Judge Sarah Evans Barker explained that Mark Newton was tried at district court level to save a jury from seeing the images produced by the defendants."
Complete nonsense. District Court IS the trial court in the Federal Courts.
There could only be a non-jury trial if the defendants waived their 6th Amendment right to a jury trial.
This absurd statement is evidence of the bias and shoddiness of RT (a convenient and purposely cryptic abbreviation of "Russia Times")reporting.
Their news stories have no place on a gay website.
Because straight people are the majority and they make the rules. Straight is perceived as the norm while we are perceived as deviant. Well, truthfully, only straight white men escape being profiled or judged based on the actions of other members of their group. I was reading something not too long ago that basically blamed international child sex tourism on gay men from the West, when anybody with a brain knows that the vast majority of those men aren't gay. It's frustrating but I don't see it changing. I just remind myself that those people are extremely ignorant.
Stop posting lying shit from RT.
You ignorant pig!
Stop with the trash propaganda from RT! RT is Russian State Propaganda. Get a clue!
I hate stories like this. This truly is why they hate us.
No it isn't R27. If you were more intelligent and mature, you would realize they would hate you if none of us ever did anything bad.
Reading rest of threads here, gagging on irony at the outrage over the "homophobic" RT stereotyping all gays based on the actions of a few . . .
They were waiting on line for a bacon white chocolate cronut, and boredom got the best of them. Which flyover turned them in?
This proves that NO gays should be allowed to have children or marry, They're ALL subhuman pedophiles. All of Russian's new anti-gay laws are perfectly legitimate. ALL gays deserve the hatred and disgust and prejudices directed towards them based on this.
And, Bradley (Chelsea) Manning proves that NO gays should ever be able to serve in the military.
Of course, I believe NONE of what I just wrote above, but some DLers gleefully take such positions towards all black people based on the actions of the scum thugs and criminals of the black community. Yet, they want to somehow not have the actions of gay men such as this reflect on them? Why not? Don't their actions prove that all gays are sick, damaged, and horrible people?
The same DLers who say antigay shit R31. Think before you write.
R31, get help you dizzy queen.
Of course this story will now be linked to and shared on Facebook and passed around via email by every fundie bigot.
I get your point, R31.
Okay,they didn`t have to get back at Russians exactly THAT way...
This thread is still open? I thought that this morning the Russian media outlet used as source material was discredited as propaganda. What happened?
Judge Barker is a far right activist judge appointed by Reagan who has repeatedly overstepped the law in various cases. I wonder if this is a real news story or some kind of pastiche of fake ones.
No it is a real story. The sentencing was in June. I found it in the Indianapolis Star archives.
The two dads: one was Australian, and the other was a U.S.-Australian dual citizen. But the court accepted a plea deal, which may mean there was something wrong with the case.
So the judge believed they deserved a harsher sentence but didn't want to subject the jury to the disturbing evidence. Damn.
They lived in Brisbane and Cairns when they adopted the boy but they were living in L.A. when they were arrested.
This is very sad but this is what bigots think of us anyway. They exchange studies back forth claiming that homosexuals are more likely to do this and more likely to engage in illegal activity, just a lot of craziness. So I wouldn't worry about what they think.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
