A ‘sad and lonely’ pedophile who filmed himself sexually assaulting a young boy and shared the depraved footage on Snapchat has been sentenced to 18 years in prison.
Justin Kenneth Radford was arrested last February at his home in Wyong, on the central coast of NSW, after police received a tip from US authorities that the popular media-sharing app was being used to promote sexual abuse material. distribute children.
In a series of sick messages discovered by police, Radford sent six videos to another pedophile asking if they had “baby stuff.”
Another user told Radford that he has a son that he “loves to play with,” to which Radford replied, “I wish I had a son to play with” and “I’m so jealous of you.”
The 30-year-old pleaded guilty to 17 charges, including seven charges for sexually touching a young boy, along with a series of charges related to distributing thousands of images and videos of child abuse and bestiality to 19 people.
Judge Tanya Bright read parts of a heartbreaking victim impact statement in Gosford court on Tuesday in which the boy’s family explained that they only learned about their son’s abuse after Radford was arrested.

“There’s no real way I can explain the pain, the pain, the sadness. We compete every day and find ways to overcome the experience as much as possible,” the statement said, according to news.com.au.
The family said they initially noticed the boy’s behavior had changed – he was “clearly upset” and began to refuse affection, such as hugging and kissing.
After learning about the abuse, they were forced to move and the father quit his job to make sure he was home more often.
Radford sent images of the boy to online pedophiles and said he hoped to “get more from him soon.”
Judge Bright said: “They describe their concern for (the victim) as he gets older and they are saddened that they don’t know if (the victim) will remember the events.”

The court heard that the former Nine Network tape library assistant had 10 videos showing him abusing the boy on four separate days from about January 2019.
Each disturbing video ranges from about nine to 51 seconds and shows Radford sexually assaulting the boy – trying to stop him.
In one video, the deranged pedophile stops his victim from leaving the room before abusing him.
Speaking to another child molester via email, Radford said he had “a lot of” footage but said he’d “prefer not to share them online” — ending the message with a smiling emoji.

More than 800 charges have been filed.
