Over 20 years ago a toddler with the name of James Bulger was brutally killed and tortured by two 10 year old boys, Jon Venables and Robert Thompson. It was a murder that shook the nation and still continues to do so over 2 decades later.
Jon Venables and Robert Thompson had spent at least a minimum of 8 years in prison after countless trials and protests by the public. It was only in 2001 when they were given lifelong anonymity and were allowed to go out on licence.
However, Jon Venables had abused that freedom and has been once again sent to prison after admitting ownership of over 1,000 indecent images on children aged 6-13 years although there were claims that some were younger.
Police also found a handbook on Venables’ person called the “Jazz guide” which taught abusers how to have sexual intercourse with children “safely”.
The prosecutor told the court: “The manual is a disgusting and sickening document which falls far below any recognisable standard of morality.”
Police have also investigated the situation and have reported that Venables had an illegal software which allowed him to browse the dark web, which all of the photos had come from. Nearly 400 photos were cast as Category A (the most serious), over 140 were cast as Category B, and the rest were all labelled as Category C.
Venables seems to have regretted his inappropriate actions as a source has said that he is asking for forgiveness from everyone that he is hurt and anyone he’s caused distress. It doesn’t seem to have worked as he has now been labelled a potential threat to children and adults everywhere.
Jon Venables has now been given a prison sentence and has also been on the recieving end of a sexual harm prevention order.
