Vile child rapist Ruecha Tokputza raped 13 children, the youngest being 17 months old.
He doesn’t even think he did anything wrong.
Ruecha Tokputza, 31, is one of South Australia’s worst predatory sex tourists, he has “shown no remorse” for the abuse of at least 13 boys during a six-and-a-half-year period.
This case could be one of the worst in Australian legal history, they are literally comparing Tokputza to darkweb, child rape material giant and former Families SA worker, Shannon McCoole. Heath Barklay SC, prosecuting, told the court “it is hard to think of more serious offending”. “The sexual exploitation of all of these children, over all of these years, in all of the forms … is in many ways simply breathtaking”. “It sits in the highest category of this type of offending.”
Tokputza has pleaded guilty to 50 charges in the District Court including aggravated indecent assault, unlawful sexual intercourse with a person under the age of 14, having sex with children outside of Australia, persistent exploitation of a child outside Australia and transmitting child exploitation material. (We know it should be called rape, but these are the actual charges)
The charges relate to the grooming of Australian and Thai children for sex. (Again, rape) He also filmed their torment and encouraged fellow predators to do the same. His vile offending only ended when he was arrested after a joint investigation by Australian Federal Police, SA Police, NSW Police and Interpol in January last year.
Make no mistake about it, if Ruecha was not caught he would still be raping children and producing vile child exploitation material, child rapists of this level do not ever stop until they are literally forced to stop, by incarceration or other methods.
The court has previously heard Tokputza, 31, of Mile End, possessed 12,500 images and 650 videos of child exploitation material. He had also used an online messaging app to transmit the material to other offenders.
Mr Heath Barklay SC (the prosecutor) said Tokputza had shown no remorse and his prospects of rehabilitation were “poor” and stated he would not have stopped offending if he was not arrested.
Judge Liesl Chapman said the only comparable case she was aware of was that of notorious Families SA paedophile Shannon McCoole. Mr Barklay said Tokputza had abused a boy as young as 17-months-old. He had also promised a Swiss man that he could “hook you up” with young children if he travelled to Thailand.
“That is another layer that in my submission makes it all the more serious,” he said.
Mr Barklay said there was “not one word of remorse or contrition or regret for the offending” from Tokputza.
“Your Honour should find that troubling,” he said. He said his lack of insight included that he felt his victims “were happy”.
There it is right there, every paedophile we know of believes they are making their victims “happy” or certainly not harming them, they are merely“loving” their victims. Unbelievable! But sadly, very true.
This is just their way of justifying their horrific offending and downright destruction of an innocent child !
In their minds they must find a way to justify it, because to consider the fact that you are an outright monster is not something the human consciousness can possibly comprehend.
We have heard survivors tell us that their abusers would say things like “I know you love this because you started it all” or “You made me do this, you know that right” or “This is how we show love for each other” and those are the cleaner versions of what we get told. Fact is all of that is an outright lie. Love has nothing to do with what these monsters do and no child EVER has led on an adult and caused themselves to be raped. NO matter what they wore or did not wear, said or did not say, did or did not do, NO CHILD HAS EVER ASKED TO BE RAPED !
Craig Caldicott, for Tokputza, said elements of his “terrible” upbringing from a young age “did not excuse but explained” his offending. He said his client had a moderate risk of reoffending and needed rehabilitation. Mr Caldicott your client CANNOT BE REHABILITATED !
“He clearly fits the description of a paedophile,” he said.
Hence why he cannot be rehabilitated Mr Caldicott.
The court heard Tokputza will be declared a serious repeat offender, meaning the court must sentence an offender with a non-parole period no less than 4/5 of the head sentence. Mr Caldicott urged Judge Chapman not to impose a “crushing” prison term when she sentences Tokputza next month.
Mr Caldicott we ask that you think about the survivors for just a second, before you ever ask a judge to not impose a “CRUSHING” prison term on a persistent predator who raped, abused and exploited many, many children with the youngest being only 17 months old.
Then you may just realise that he damn well should be CRUSHED! Crushed beneath the weight of a life sentence without the possibility of parole ! Without the possibility of ever being able to harm another child.
He should be absolutely CRUSHED by the sheer volume of offences, of which he has been found guilty !
The sheer number of children’s lives he has forever changed, the children he has physically and mentally tortured and exploited.
He should be totally and completely CRUSHED by the realisation that he will never again see the outside of prison walls, that he will never again be a free man, because that is what he deserves for the pain and suffering he has caused many children and their families.
Ruecha Tokputza deserves nothing less than life behind bars without the possibility of parole. He deserves no mercy, for he showed absolutely none to his innocent young victims here and in Thailand. He has shown no remorse and not even the slightest regret for his actions, in fact he stated that he believes his victims “were happy” that total lack of insight into what he has done to these children means he will, given the opportunity, re-offend. He must never be given the opportunity!
