Australian paedophile Peter Truong jailed for 30 years in US after trafficking adopted son to Boy Lovers Network
10 December 2013
A Queensland man who trafficked his adopted son to an international paedophile network has been sentenced to 30 years in jail by a US court….
Peter Truong and his partner Mark Newton bought the child, who the ABC will call Boy 1, for around $8,000 from Russia in 2005.
His birth papers were falsified to list Newton as his biological father, paving the way for Boy 1 to be adopted and brought to Queensland.
Police say the pair allowed at least eight men in several different countries, including Australia, the US, Germany and France, to molest the boy when he was between two and six years old.
Truong entered guilty pleas to one count of conspiracy to sexually exploit a child and conspiracy to possess child pornography….
Newton had earlier been sentenced to 40 years in jail for his crimes.
Truong and Newton evaded detection for six years, until a chance discovery exposed their depraved life and their paedophile network.
In 2011, New Zealand authorities discovered images revealing the boy had been used in child pornography….
