Bulger killer Jon Venables faces child porn charges

One of the two killers of Merseyside toddler James Bulger has been charged with possession and distribution of indecent images of children.

Jon Venables, who killed James in 1993, was released from jail in 2001 and given a new identity and anonymity for life under a special court order.

But Venables, now 27, was recalled to prison in February after allegedly breaching the terms of his licence.

He is charged with two offences under the 1978 Protection of Children Act.

Early stage

It is alleged that he downloaded 57 indecent images of children between February 2009 and February 2010.

He is secondly accused of distributing seven images between 1 and 23 February this year by allowing other people to access files on his computer through a peer-to-peer network.

The case is at a very early stage and will return to court on 23 July. That hearing will be the first opportunity for Venables to indicate whether he will be pleading guilty or not guilty to the alleged offences.

The Bulger family lawyer says there is "relief" Venables has been charged
Were he to plead not guilty, he would eventually appear before a jury under his new name. If he pleads guilty, the case will quickly move to sentencing.

Under the terms of Venables' anonymity order, the media is not allowed to report anything about his new identity and a jury would never know who he really is.

In March, the then Justice Secretary Jack Straw announced that Venables had been returned to prison but said that it was not in the interests of a fair trial to publicise what had allegedly happened.

Denise Fergus, James's mother, had called for the reason for the recall to be made public, saying as his mother she had "a right to know".


Speaking outside court on Monday, Robin Makin, solicitor for James's father Ralph, attacked the Ministry of Justice for the way it had handled the case ever since Venables' recall.

"We consider that the way this has been handled since news of Jon Venables being recalled to custody has been a disaster," he said.

"The public authorities ought to behave quite differently and in due course further details are likely to emerge of the mistakes that were made. Ineptitude and incompetence spring to mind."

Venables and his friend Robert Thompson were jailed for life when, as 10-year-olds, they took two-year-old James from a shopping centre in Bootle.

The toddler's body was found on a disused railway line more than two miles away from where he had been taken.

Venables and Thompson were given new identities on their release from prison in 2001 because of the risk that they would be victims of a vigilante attack.

Media law expert Mark Stephens insisted that despite the publicity it was "almost certain" that Venables could get a fair trial.

He said: "The judge has gone to extraordinary lengths, as has the prosecution. They have worked with the defence to make sure that a fair trial can happen and that justice will out at the end of the day."

UK toddler killer jailed on child porn charges

A man who killed a toddler when he was just 10 years old in a crime that shocked Britain was sentenced to jail on Friday for new child pornography charges.

Jon Venables, who is now 27, was sentenced to two years in prison after he pleaded guilty to downloading and distributing dozens of indecent images of children.

Venables became one of Britain's most notorious criminals in 1993, when he and another 10-year-old abducted 2-year-old James Bulger from a shopping center and beat him to death by an isolated railway line in northern England.

The young ages of the victim and his killers horrified the country.

The two killers were given life sentences, but were released on parole in 2001 after being given new identities to protect them.

Venables was indicted again earlier this year on the child pornography charges. He appeared at London's Central Criminal Court Friday by videolink from prison.

In a statement released by his lawyer Friday, Venables said he thought about the murder of Bulger every day and said he was "genuinely ashamed" for viewing child abuse images.
