British Paedophile Sentenced to 85 Years in US Jail

Domminich Shaw, a convicted British paedophile, has recently been sentenced to 85 years in a US prison for exchanging hundreds of indecent images with other online users.

Previous Arrest

The 35 year old was previously arrested in the UK in 2008 for the sexual assault of four young girls. However, almost immediately after his release three years later, he began to traffic pornographic material, including images and videos of babies and toddlers being sexually abused.

Using the wireless internet connections of his neighbours in west London, Shaw was able to create and share the explicit material with other paedophiles. He was on probation at the time and prosecutors have expressed their concern over the level of supervision of British sex offenders.

‘Among the worst offenders’

Requesting a 570 year sentence, prosecutors labelled Shaw “among the worst offenders involved in child pornography trafficking ever encountered by United States law enforcement”, adding that “no such person should be walking the streets”.

Shaw, who was extradited to the US in 2014, pleaded guilty to 26 charges and was sentenced last month (June 2016) by a federal judge in Indiana. His charges included conspiracies to receive, distribute and advertise child abuse images.

Officers were led to Shaw in 2010 after finding emails in the inbox of another paedophile, an American named David Bostic. The paedophile, who prosecutors have called a “key trading partner”, would distribute the indecent images produced by Shaw. Bostic, of Indiana, has since been sentenced to 315 years in prison.

2011 Police Raid

In January 2011, Shaw’s London home was raided. Officers from the Metropolitan Police found around 18,000 ‘carefully stored’ photographs of dead, mutilated and abused infants on DVDs, memory sticks and a laptop belonging to Shaw.

Under his online username Nepi, an abbreviation of the word nepiophelia – sexual attraction towards babies and toddlers, Shaw would contact other paedophiles. On one occasion, after striking up an online relationship with a paedophile posing as a woman, he spoke of his “plan to kidnap, rape and murder a child once he got off supervision”.

Shaw even created a website, ‘Nepi’s Kingdom’, where paedophiles had access to download hundreds of abuse images.

Around 3000 emails containing or relating to child abuse imagery were found in Shaw’s email account. One particular email was sent to more than 60 people and it contained around 13 links to material containing child abuse, including a video of a baby girl being raped.

Prosecutors described Shaw’s collection as containing “such horrific content that even seasoned forensic examiners in the United Kingdom and the United States found it difficult to describe and categorize without frequent breaks”.
