If a Child Is Old Enough To Talk, Then It’s Old Enough To Have Sex -British Paedophile Tells Police

By  | 

A convicted pervert who a court heard wants to travel to other countries to have sex with children has lost an appeal restricting his movements abroad.

Jason Leonard has been described by police bosses at a court hearing as “one of the most dangerous” registered sex offenders in the region, the Rossendale Free Press reports.

A judge heard that Leonard claims paedophiles in the UK are being “persecuted” and likens his treatment by society to that of “homosexuals 40 years ago and the Jews in the Second World War”.

Leonard was jailed for 32 months in 2013 after downloading 251 indecent images of children and then sharing them on the internet.

Detective Constable Andrew Ashworth, who manages more than 90 registered sex offenders in Lancashire, told the Crown Court hearing that Leonard is “one of the most dangerous offenders I have met” and that he posed an “exceptional risk”. Mr Leonard has expressed his desire to leave the country because he believes the police, judiciary and government in this country are persecuting paedophiles.
