Convicted Pedophile Pictured At Park After He Changed His Identity To Weasel His Way Closer To Another Family
Daily Mail- These sickening pictures show a 'devious' convicted paedophile enjoying himself in a children's park during an outing with a young family whom he had targeted for more than one year.
Hospital DJ Matt Richards was captured grinning at the camera as he played on swings and slides during a trip with family and a young child to a park in Waterlooville, Hampshire.
But, unbeknown to the young mother, the 46-year-old had been banned from contacting youngsters after being jailed for sex offences against a 15-year-old girl.
After being released from jail for those crimes, he had changed his name, before beginning a year-long campaign to worm his way into the unsuspecting family in order to get closer to the child.
But the pervert's 'manipulative' methods were finally uncovered when the mother learned of his real identity and founds articles relating to his sordid criminal past.
He has now been jailed for 33 months for breaching the terms of his release, in what the judge said was clear attempt to 'behave in a sexual manner with those children.'
The mother, speaking anonymously about her ordeal, said: 'It's sickening to think he would do so much, for so long - nearly a year - to get to a child. That's some kind of obsession, it's really scary.'
The 46-year-old had previously been convicted of several crimes relating to a teenage girl whom he had met while working as a hospital DJ.
It's a fucked up world we live in. That's why you got to keep your head on a swizzle. As pessimistic as it seems you've always got to stay suspicious of people you don't truly know. That applies ten fold when it comes to taking care of children. So, is it incredibly disgusting that this guy got out of prison and immediately changed his name to make it easier to find his next victim? Yup. Is it disturbing to know that a pedophile could be persistent enough to spend up to a year around a family in hopes of ending up alone with the children? Absolutely, this guy is as as sick as they come. However, that's what kiddie touchers do. In order to molest children you have to be extremely dedicated to doing so. It make not be the most praiseworthy hobby, but it's not the easiest either. So at the risk of victim shaming, can we please ask these parents to be a little more dedicated to the safety of their children?
It's one thing to let the nice old man next door take care of your kids. It's a whole different story when you see a 46 year old's eyes light up while playing on the playground. In my opinion he isn't even old enough to cross the barrier into being known as the harmless grandfather type. Don't let the gray hair fool you. I don't know if there are certain characteristics that are consistent with most pedophiles, but if there are this guy has ever last one of them. No man should get that much joy out of sliding down a 5 foot slide. I'm not saying that every man that has smiled while going down a children's slide is a pedophile, but I am saying that you shouldn't let them watch your child alone. Just got to play the odds on that one. If the person playing with your kids enjoys the playing more than your kids it's probably not just the thrill of the swings that they are after. This guy may be guilty of sexual misconduct and tricking his way into a family's circle of trust, but they are guilty of ignoring some very telling warning signs. Mainly the child-like twinkle in his eye and the stiffy in his pants while he refuses to wait his turn to sway back and forth on the indecipherable squiggly pole thing.
P.S. Becoming a hospital DJ in order to get closer to a 15 year old girl, who I am assuming was probably in the hospital for a reason, has got to be one of the most elaborate tricks of the pedophilia trade, right? Probably shouldn't have let him see the light of day after that one. Just my opinion.
