Twisted paedo busted after shipping perverted child sex doll into UK from China

A paedophile was busted with a stash of indecent images of children after buying a creepy underage sex doll from China.

Malcolm Young, 60, faces jail after failing to convince jurors he purchased the 100cm high, flat-chested sex doll because it "resembled an athletic female body-type".

Police blasted his "preposterous account" and said he thought he was "above the law" after he was convicted at trial.

Young was put on the radar of Northumbria Police in 2017 when he attempted to import the doll.

The 60-year-old's purchase was intercepted by Border Force officials who informed detectives about their concerns for the package.

Officers raided Young's home in the East Woodburn area of Northumberland and seized his computer and phone which contained indecent images.

Young was found guilty of four counts of making indecent images of children and one count of tax evasion, concerning the doll.

He denied buying the doll because it looked like a child, telling a jury at Newcastle Crown Court he bought it because it "resembled an athletic female body-type".

After an eight day trial a jury found Young guilty of all five counts and he faces jail when he is sentenced later this year.

Detective Constable Alison Felton, who led the investigation, said Young thought he was "above the law".

She said: "This has been a long and protracted investigation involving the making of indecent images and the importation of a child-like sex doll.

"We are committed to making sure that offenders are brought to justice, no matter who they are or however long it takes.

"Young thought that he was above the law. He has taken no responsibility for his crimes and the jury saw through the preposterous account he gave to the court."

Young was bailed and will return to court for sentencing on September 24.

In April, a man who had bought six child-like sex dolls was charged after Border Force officers spotted a shipment of a similar item being sent to him from China.

The 46-year-old man, from Brisbane Australia, has not been named by the authorities. During a search of the suspect’s house, police also found a laptop containing child abuse images and other material.

After being arrested under Commonwealth laws targeting behaviour related to child abuse, he faced a court on Wednesday, April 21.

He was found guilty of two counts of possessing a child-like sex doll or other object that resembles a child under 18, attempting to possess a child-like sex doll, and possessing child exploitation material.

He was the first person in Queensland to be charged and sentenced for the new offence, which came into effect in Australia in September 2019 as part of the Combatting Child Sexual Exploitation Legislation Amendment Act 2019. The maximum penalty for offences under the act is 10 years imprisonment.

In this case, reports WA Today, the defendant was sentenced to two years’ imprisonment, but released immediately on a two-year $2000 (£1115) good behaviour bond.
