Prolific Paedophile Gets 22 Life Sentences
Huckle first visited Malaysia on a teaching gap year when he was 19 and later used an English teaching qualification and his professed Christianity to gain access to dozens of victims in poor communities there.
He was arrested by National Crime Agency officials who had been tipped off by Australian authorities as he arrived at Gatwick Airport on his way to spend Christmas with his family in 2014.
Investigators managed to recover more than 20,000 indecent images of children from Huckle’s computer, even though he refused to give them any passwords.
But they were unable to access some encrypted files, which are believed to contain “numerous” depraved images, as well as the names of a large number of unknown potential victims.
As well as the draft of Huckle’s paedophile manual, they found his “Pedopoints ledger” in which he awarded himself marks for acts of depravity with children.
