An Australian man who raped a Filipino girl from when she was five-years-old until she was eight in Angeles City has been jailed for more than 10 years.

Terrence William Hainsworth, 61, lived in Angeles City between 2005 and 2008, during which time he repeatedly raped the Filipino girl. Hainsworth also threatened the girl and forced her to watch footage of other children being sexually abused, PerthNow reported.

The man was first jailed for 13 months in 2009 when he was caught in possession of child pornography on his computer upon his arrival at Perth airport in Australia in 2008.

In 2016, police raided Hainsworth’s home in Perth where they discovered pornographic pictures of the young Filipina stored on a hard drive. Hainsworth initially denied the crimes when questioned by police.

Hainsworth eventually pleaded guilty to seven offenses, including attempting to have sexual intercourse with a child under 16 while overseas as an Australian citizen and for committing indecent acts with a child under 16 while overseas.

The Australian was sentenced to two years in prison for child pornography and nine years for abusing the girl. He will be eligible for parole after serving six years in prison.

  1. Aw, this was a very good post. Finding the time and actual effort to generate a really good article… but what can I say…
    I hesitate a whole lot and don’t manage to get anything done.

  2. It’s a pity you don’t have a donate button! I’d certainly
    donate to this outstanding blog! I suppose for
    now i’ll settle for bookmarking and adding your RSS feed to my Google account.

  3. I have been surfing online more than 2 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours.

    It is pretty worth enough for me. In my view,
    if all web owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the web will
    be a lot more useful than ever before.

  4. Thank you, I have recently been searching for information approximately this topic for ages and yours is the greatest I’ve discovered till now.
    However, what about the conclusion? Are you certain in regards to the source?

  5. Hey! I realize this is somewhat off-topic however I needed to ask.
    Does operating a well-established blog such as yours require a
    massive amount work? I am completely new to writing a blog but
    I do write in my journal on a daily basis. I’d like to start a blog so
    I can share my experience and thoughts online. Please let me know if you have any kind of
    recommendations or tips for new aspiring bloggers. Appreciate it!

  6. Hmm it appears like your site ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so I guess I’ll just
    sum it up what I had written and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying
    your blog. I too am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still new to everything.
    Do you have any recommendations for rookie blog writers?
    I’d certainly appreciate it.

  7. Admiring the commitment you put into your blog and
    detailed information you present. It’s good to come across a blog every once in a while that isn’t the
    same old rehashed material. Excellent read!
    I’ve bookmarked your site and I’m including your
    RSS feeds to my Google account.

  8. Thanks for any other wonderful post. Where else
    could anybody get that kind of info in such an ideal manner of writing?
    I have a presentation next week, and I’m at the look for such info.

  9. I do not even know how I ended up right here, however I assumed this publish used to be good. I don’t understand who you’re but definitely you are going to a well-known blogger if you aren’t already 😉 Cheers!
