Paedo As.

Postby hiv-positive » Mon Mar 26, 2012 7:54 pm

If you happened to be kicking around the music or art scenes in Palmy or Welly in the 90's / 00's, then chances are you met this guy, who you might recall from that dodgy charity art auction rip off a few years back. For fucks sake, Laurie - I always knew you were a sketchy cunt with drugs, booze and money, but... woah!

http://www.stuff.co.nz/national/crime/6631643/Paedophile-posted-abuse-images-online

For a decade, a former Wellington art gallery owner committed depraved sex acts on at-risk children, uploading his abuse online to a worldwide audience.

It can now be revealed that Aaron Paul Laurence, 38, has pleaded guilty to more than 60 charges of abuse, including the rape of young boys and the production and distribution of footage of their ordeals.

Details of Laurence's offending were suppressed until yesterday.

When Laurence's stash of illicit child pornography was finally uncovered last year – hidden in a mire of computer encryptions and passwords – police found more than 31,000 images and videos. Many were homemade and detailed his horrific abuse of eight boys, aged between 8 and 13, across the lower North Island. During his appearance in Lower Hutt District Court yesterday, Laurence opposed The Dominion Post's application to photograph him.

His lawyer, Louise Brown, said any photos could impact on his safety in prison and could affect his mother's deteriorating health. Judge Ian Mill said such considerations were not sufficient to replace the principles of open justice.

Laurence once owned an art gallery on Wellington's Lambton Quay, called the Aaron Laurence Gallery.

A local artist, who asked not to be named, said Laurence was "always talking about his sexual prowess".

"He was always a dodgy geezer. He seemed pretty immoral every time you hung out with him. He wasn't exactly someone you wanted to spend extended lengths of time with."

Laurence's prolific offending finally ended when he was caught by police in an online sting in July 2011. A detective was able to monitor an internet chat involving Laurence.

The next day, police observed Laurence making statements that he had abused boys and had images available to download.

The police summary of facts said Laurence sexually abused eight victims, electronically recording his exploits.

"In many instances these boys did not know they were being filmed as the camera was hidden or they were filmed and abused when they were asleep."

Laurence would target vulnerable children and groom victims, the summary said.

In one case, he chatted for weeks to a 13-year-old boy online before meeting him at a train station and taking him to his house. He gave the boy cigarettes and cannabis, causing the boy to become intoxicated. Later he made the boy watch porn and raped him, filming the abuse.

On another occasion, he befriended an 11-year-old boy and began to sexually abuse him.

"He was a vulnerable young boy from a troubled home and initially felt safe visiting the defendant's house, as he let him play games and gave him ... food," the summary said.

"He admitted knowing that the boys he befriended and then abused were from troubled homes and often had parents who would not be concerned if they did not come home at night."

Laurence had been in possession of the offensive material since the late 1990s and had been producing the footage since 2001, police said.

"The demand for new images results in a continuing cycle of abuse for existing victims and the demand for new victims.

"The defendant has not only sexually offended against his victims, but by photographing, filming and distributing pictures of the abuse, the victims are victimised repeatedly when their images turn up on the internet."

The leader of Police Online Child Exploitation Across New Zealand, Detective Senior Sergeant John Michael, said the exploitation of children was a global problem.

"I don't think we could ever say it's an epidemic here but it's certainly in existence and we come across it every day.

"The abuse itself has got younger. We are talking about sexual torture, bondage and discipline type sado-masochistic images involving children."

Judge Mill remanded Laurence in custody for sentencing in May.

is this related to the really disturbing/paedo-looking painting on the side of the art shop/gallery between kilbirnie and newtown? That always bothered me a bit.

Jesus fucking shit. I always thought Lorry was alright. Jesus. Fucking. Shit.

Gods, the last couple of days have destroyed any remnants of hope I had for the human race. This just tops it. I don't think I'll bother any more.

The old NZ two degrees of seperation sucks hard at times. I mean, obviously what he has done is entirely on him, but it's shitty when you know these sorts of people personally. Those poor kids.

More of the same, probably. Never leave the house, instead of seldom. Instead of not letting my kid do much shit because I see peds behind every second tree (too much America's Most Wanted :?), she won't be able to do *anything*, because I'll see them behind *every* tree...


Nah, seriously, this has blown my mind. I've know this guy since I was proper little, since he was in the army, like, pre-punk scene times. All I can say is, considering some of the states we were in around his house, I'm glad I'm a girl, like. Was always real arrogant to us back then, but after meeting him again in the Wild Horse days, put that down to him having been closeted at the time. I never would have thought. Last time I saw him woulda been, ooh, five years ago. He still had the gallery at the time. Woulda been right into his fucking and raping little boys. Jesus fucking wept :?

Yeah, I hope they rip him up good. Sick fuck.

What a fucking creep. I vaguely remember him hanging around in Palmy. I think one of my ex-flatmates knew him, and we may have been at some of the same gigs and parties but thankfully, I never got to know this piece of shit. I would normally post a picture of a jar of Vaseline for stories like this, but in this cunt's case, he doesn't deserve any.

I didn't know him well, just, you know, our scene here is pretty fucking incestuous at the best of times, everyone knows everyone. Friends of friends, you end up smashed in someones kitchen with the knives blazing, more like that. But still, a huge fucking shock. I guess I somehow thought motherhood gave me amazing pedo 3D vision or some shit, but I never would have thought it, you know. Makes my stomach crawl :?

Actually I remember exactly where I met him now. He came to the Poetry Studio at the Blue Note once when I was MC and told me how I should be running the show so I told him to fuck off. Job well done.

In these cases I think it's pretty normal for people to feel like they 'should have known' or something, but seriously.. I couldn't even dream up this shit about people I seriously fucking hate.
Imagine being a good friend of the guy, or his family 8O

I wondered that myself, turns out the prosecution were looking to get him preventative detention but he decided to plead not guilty on the day of his sentencing.

What a fucktard.

No, he plead guilty and then decided to change his plea on the day of his sentencing, which means he got three weeks to file the paper work and there will probably be a trial. Which, to me, is fucking retarded. Like, there's all this child porn on his computer including his own home movies, what is he going to say - "oh, it must've been someone else raping those kids with my dick in those videos."

Just the fact he's changed his plea to not guilty is gonna make his final sentencing soooo much worse.
An insanity plea would be pretty much impossible to make plausible.

One lawyer to another
1. It's my understanding he has run a successful art gallery during the alleged sexual assaults. This demonstrates an ability to maintain routine and deal with the public on a regular bassis. Not something you'd expect from someone who's insane.
2. He has filmed some of the assaults. This displays a degree of pre meditation and planning.
3. He has been trading these images and videos with other people with his interests. Again this is not something you'd expect from someone who's insane. He has identified people with similar interests rather than just spreading it randomly.
It's all too calculated, no indicators of "insanity".
Prosecution rests.
