Jail for one of pimped daughter's abusers

AAP logoAAP 23/09/2016

A Perth man who sexually abused a 12-year-old girl alongside her father while she was shackled to a bed and forced to wear bondage gear has been jailed for seven years.Nicholas Adam Beer, 36, admitted sexually penetrating and indecently dealing with the child, and also taking indecent photographs and videos of her naked but wearing a mask, gag and dog collar emblazoned with the word "bitch" while tied up at his Wanneroo home in March 2014. He also pleaded guilty to supplying the material to the father and possessing more than 27,000 images and 475 videos of other child exploitation material that he'd downloaded from the internet.The District Court of WA heard the father brought his daughter to Beer's house after he responded to online advertisements offering her up.In one of the videos Beer took, the girl can be seen struggling, saying "stop, please dad".The court heard Beer - an anxious, socially alienated, emotionally immature loner - initially said she seemed "comfortable and un-frightened" but psychiatric treatment was helping him start to gain an insight into the impact of his serious offending on the victim."She was simply far too young and you knew it was wrong," Judge Bruce Goetze said in sentencing on Friday."She was uniquely vulnerable and her father encouraged you to exploit her, which is really unusual and strange."How any father can do this escapes me."Judge Goetze said the girl, who did not provide a victim impact statement, would probably not comprehend until she was an adult the full extent of the degradation she had been subjected to."That offending really humiliated her," he said."She was was sexually exploited by a deviant father and you took advantage."Beer, who was among a group of men charged last year with abusing the girl when she was aged 11 to 13, dubbed the "Evil 8", will be eligible for parole after serving five years.Beer had been out on bail and not served any time behind bars.The father, 42, was jailed for 22-and-a-half years in June but has appealed the sentence, arguing it is manifestly excessive.
