It’s unfortunate that some primitive humans commit savage acts such as raping young ones. Maybe they have no conscience, or their mental faculties are not intact, whichever the case, the Evil 8 pedophile network has been successfully exposed for its heinous acts.
This follows the conviction of the final member of the Evil 8 pedophile network, who has been told that he will go to jail for the rape of a 13-year-old girl who was pimped out by her father in one of WA’s worst cases of sex abuse.
The judgment day had been delayed for more than a year with non-appearances, changing lawyers and a fleeing to NSW, but justice has finally caught up with Alfred John Impicciatore, 47.
John was found guilty by a District Court judge over four counts of rape against the girl, who was offered to him by her own father after the perverted pair made contact on the internet. The accused was the sixth stranger to abuse the girl after contact with her father, who also consistently abused her.
The eighth perpetrator, who was also arrested as part of Operation Ripstop, did not abuse the girl directly, but was in contact with her father and was convicted of possessing child pornography.
The admissions that Impicciatore made to police after the March 2015 offences, provided compelling proof as revealed by Judge Mark Herron, that he had gone to the girl’s northern suburbs home at the invitation of her father and raped her four times in one night while she wore a sleep mask and headphones, to make matters worse, the father also joined the perpetrator in the act.
The sexual predator is set to be sentenced in March next year, however, his lawyer John Hawkins has conceded he faces a significant jail term when psychological and psychiatric reports have been finished.
The father is serving a 22 1/2-year jail term for his part in the crimes. Impicciatore was the only one of the men who denied his crimes, prompting a trial by judge alone held last week. This required that the girl give a first-hand account in open court, although she was exempted from giving evidence in person.
Police officers who induced the confessions from Impicciatore were in court to witness his conviction and they seemed to be very excited after the decision was reached.
