Jack Renshaw also sent explicit messages but claimed he was being framed by an anti facist group

Neo-Nazi Jack Renshaw offered a teenage boy £300 to spend the night with him

Neo-Nazi Jack Renshaw offered a teenage boy £300 to spend the night with him


A white supremacist groomed two children online by sending them explicit sexual pictures and offered one boy £300 for the night.

Jack Renshaw, from Skelmersdale, claimed he was set up by the anti fascist group Hope not Hate in a bid to discredit him.

The self-confessed Neo Nazi told the court that the group maliciously hacked his mobile phone and sent the sexual messages to the teenagers.

However, jurors believed he was lying and found him guilty of four counts of inciting a child to engage in sexual activity during a trial at Preston Crown Court in June last year.

The former leader of the British National Party youth wing set up two fake Facebook profiles and contacted the boys, aged 13 and 14, between February 2016 and January 2017.

Using Facebook Messenger, Renshaw, boasted that he was rich, could give the boys jobs, asked for intimate pictures and even offered £300 to one boy spend the night with him.

Renshaw, who also plotted to kill local MP Rosie Cooper, was jailed for 16 months after one of the boys told a tutor about the messages and he was reported to police.

Police seized two Blackberry phones from his family’s then address in Blackpool but most of the internet history had been deleted.

However, officers recovered some material that included searches for homosexual pornography.

The 23-year-old also received a three-year prison sentence two months earlier when he was found guilty by a different jury at the same court of stirring up racial hatred after he called for the genocide of Jewish people.

Both cases can be fully reported following the end of proceedings he faced at the Old Bailey where a jury was unable to reach a verdict on a charge that he was a member of banned far-right group National Action.

Another two phones belonging to Renshaw were later recovered and they showed evidence of searches for homosexual pornography.

When interviewed, he told police he was heterosexual and a virgin who did not believe in sex outside of marriage, and viewed homosexuality as “unnatural”.

He went on to blame the police for putting material on his phone as he told them: “I believe this is a vicious, malicious attack to put me in prison, to ostracise me from the nationalist movement and to ostracise me from my family.”

But at his trial he said that was a “kneejerk reaction” and he told the jury he now believed Hope Not Hate had hacked all four phones by “some form of synchronised access”.

He said: “They are obsessed with me. They had a gripe with me for a long time.

“They have been writing articles about me since 2014.

“There was a pure hatred of me and everything I stand for.”

Cross-examined by prosecutor Louise Brandon, he dismissed the views of three experts who gave evidence that hacking had not taken place and explained he had some experience in the field as a technician at Dixons Retail where he resolved computer hitches for customers.

Miss Brandon said his suggestion of remote access to his phones was one worthy of a spy novel.

She said to him: “The reality of this is you know that if people whose views you want and whose opinions matter to you knew you were interested in men and young boys then they would cast you out.”

Renshaw replied: “That is not the case at all. The nationalist cause has gays in it. It’s just I’m not gay.”

Following his convictions for the child sex offences he was placed on the Sex Offender Register for 10 years and was told by Judge Robert Altham his 16-month jail term would start after he has completed his sentence for inciting racial hatred.

Renshaw had denied those offences, committed during a demonstration by a group named the North West Infidels on Blackpool Promenade in March 2016, and at a gathering of far-right extremists, the Yorkshire Forum For Nationalists, held the month before.

The court heard that the defendant had described Jewish people as parasites and called for them to be “eradicated” at the Yorkshire event, where he spoke to delegates from other far-right organisations.

During that sentencing hearing, Renshaw nodded his head in the dock as Judge Altham questioned whether he still held the same views as he had when he gave the two speeches.

The judge noted: “The defendant is resolute in his original views and withdraws nothing.

“He seeks to raise street armies, perpetrate violence against Jewish people and ultimately bring about genocide.”

It was revealed in court he had groomed two underage boys online


The leader of banned neo-Nazi group National Action is a convicted paedophile who was jailed last year for grooming two underage boys online, it can now be revealed.

White supremacist Jack Renshaw set up two fake Facebook profiles and contacted the boys, aged 13 and 14, between February 2016 and January 2017.

Communicating via the Facebook Messenger app, Renshaw boasted to the youngsters that he was rich, could give them jobs and offered one of them £300 to spend the night with him.

He also requested intimate photographs of the pair before one of the boys reported the messages to his tutor and the police were contacted.

Renshaw claimed in his defence that an anti-fascist group made up the allegations to discredit him.

He said Hope Not Hate had maliciously hacked his mobile phones to send messages of a sexual nature to the teenagers.

But jurors at Preston Crown Court did not believe him, and convicted him of four counts of inciting a child to engage in sexual activity. He was sentenced to 16 months in jail.

Renshaw, 23, from Skelmersdale, Lancashire, also received a three-year prison sentence two months earlier when he was found guilty by a different jury at the same court of stirring up racial hatred after he called for the genocide of Jewish people.

Both cases can be fully reported following the end of proceedings he faced at the Old Bailey – where a jury was unable to reach a verdict on a charge that he was a member of banned far-right group National Action.

Investigations led to the seizure of two BlackBerry phones from Renshaw’s then family address in Blackpool, Lancashire.

Much of the internet history on the phones had been deleted but officers used specialist software to retrieve some of the relevant material.

Another two phones belonging to Renshaw were later recovered and they showed evidence of searches for homosexual pornography.

When interviewed, he told police he was heterosexual and a virgin who did not believe in sex outside of marriage, and viewed homosexuality as “unnatural”.

He went on to blame the police for putting material on his phone as he told them: “I believe this is a vicious, malicious attack to put me in prison, to ostracise me from the nationalist movement and to ostracise me from my family.”

Twisted pervert Gerard Kendrick, who had a nappy fetish, raped and molested six children over two decades

Gerard Kendrick, 32, of Barmouth Way, Vauxhall

Gerard Kendrick, 32, of Barmouth Way, Vauxhall

A serial rapist with a nappy fetish was caught after taking horrific photos of a victim and sending them to another paedophile.

Gerard Kendrick raped and molested six children over two decades – beginning when he himself was aged just 10-years-old.

The twisted pervert, 32, forced little boys and girls to wear nappies while carrying out sickening attacks on traumatised victims.

But his disturbing crimes only came to light last year, after police seized indecent images from a known sex offender in Blackburn.

Using GPS technology, officers discovered some of the photographs were created at Kendrick’s Barmouth Way, Vauxhall home.

They later found the stash included pictures Kendrick took of him raping a little boy, who he made wear a nappy, in 2017 and 2018.

When he was arrested over the find last year, five more victims – now adults – came forward to report he had also ruined their lives.

Kendrick was today jailed for 18 years, with an extended six years on licence, for the “disgraceful catalogue of sexual offending”.

Judge Robert Warnock said: “You have stolen the innocence and enjoyment of their childhood and scarred and impaired their adult life.”

Liverpool Crown Court heard police recovered hundreds of indecent images from the computer of convicted paedophile Trevor Howard.

The 60-year-old, of no fixed address but formerly of Whalley Old Road, Blackburn, was jailed for 18 months in November last year.

Arthur Gibson, prosecuting, said: “As part of the development of investigatory techniques in relation to the production and distribution of indecent images of children, the police are now able to subject recovered images to a programme, which is capable of revealing a GPS location, and date and time when a particular image was created.”

How he was caught

The innovative software identified that images had been sent from GPS locations in Liverpool, including Stanley Dock and Kendrick’s nearby home.

Merseyside Police examined his Facebook account, which led them to contact a couple, whose child they believed had been abused and pictured.
They visited the pair, who confirmed it was their child and said they recognised Kendrick’s bathroom in one picture, which led to his house being raided.

Share a ‘nappy fetish’

Kendrick arrived home mid-search and claimed: “I may have took one or two photos when he was in a nappy, but I didn’t know it was wrong.

“I know my computer was hacked and I had to wipe it clean.”

Mr Gibson said: “The relevance of the nappy is that Howard and the defendant share an interest in a nappy fetish, and a large number of the indecent images involved children in nappies.”

They recovered 3,416 indecent images, including 668 Category A pictures – the most serious category – from Kendrick’s computer.

Mr Gibson said Kendrick, who also had revolting extreme porn, must have distributed the pictures of the boy directly or indirectly to Howard via a third party of sharing site.

The court heard his five other victims were aged between six and 12 when Kendrick, then aged between 10 and 21, abused them in the 1990s and 2000s.

One boy recalled how Kendrick had once been violent, dragged him around and thrown him against a bed, before raping him.

A girl said he pushed her onto a bed, held her arms and covered her mouth when molesting her, hit and threatened her, and repeatedly attempted to rape her.

Mr Gibson said: “On occasions the defendant’s nappy fetish came to the fore – he would make her wear a nappy and walk around the room.”

A second girl told police he asked her to play the game of “being the baby”, made her lie on a bed, undressed and abused her.

Kendrick molested a third girl while another boy was present, making the boy face the wall, before he abused the boy while she faced the wall.

Tears in court

He admitted 16 sexual offences including rape, attempted rape, sexual assault, indecent assault, and making and distributing indecent photos of children.

Victims and their supporters sitting in the public gallery cried as the abuse was described, with one upset man leaving the courtroom.

Some observers snorted in derision when it was said Kendrick – sitting stone-faced and staring straight ahead – claimed to be sorry.

Michael O’Brien, defending, said: “The defendant understands that there is very little that can be said on his behalf.

“He maintains the account that he gave to the author of the pre-sentence report, namely that he is disgusted by what he’s done, and maintains his desire to apologise to his victims for the harm and distress, and take advantage of any treatment programmes that may be offered to him.”

Judge Warnock said Kendrick’s “sexual abuse and degradation” of his victims represented “a disgraceful catalogue of sexual offending”.

He said: “You sexually abused your victims and downloaded indecent images entirely for your own selfish and sexual enjoyment.

“You did not have any consideration whatsoever for the welfare or innocence of these children.

“Unwilling” to address what he had done.

“It seems that you regarded them as objects available to satiate your own fetishes and perversions.”

A psychologist found Kendrick – who claimed he too was a victim of sexual abuse – was “unwilling and unable” to address what he had done.

The doctor concluded he was “an active participant in a sexual fetish”, while a probation officer found he had “little or no insight” into his crimes.

“Dangerous offender”

Judge Warnock said: “I am unsure as to the genuineness of the remorse expressed.”

He said Kendrick was a high risk of sexual harm to children and a “dangerous offender”, who must sign on the Sex Offenders Register for life.

This type of extended sentence means the paedophile will spend at least two thirds of the custodial term – 12 years – behind bars.

He will only be freed before the end of the 18 years if a parole board decides it is safe and will be on licence until he is 56.

Speaking after the hearing, Detective Sergeant Richie Shillito, who investigated the incident, said: “Gerard Kendrick subjected his six victims to vicious and violent sexual assaults for his own sexual gratification.

“I would like to praise the bravery and courage of the victims for the strength they have shown in speaking to us about the ordeal they were put through by Kendrick.

Victims praised

“Their support of our investigation has led to a dangerous sexual predator being sent to jail for a long period of time, and to other children being protected from him.

“The victims and their families were supported by specially trained officers from Merseyside Polices Unity Team during the course of the investigation and court process.

“Merseyside Police will always listen to victims of sexual violence, whether it is recent or not, and whatever the circumstances. We will treat all victims with sensitivity, compassion and as individuals with individual needs.

“There is a great deal of support and advice out there and we can put measures in place to help victims from the point they make a report to the police right through to the court hearing.

“I would urge anyone who has been sexually assaulted or raped to find it within themselves to tell someone what has happened to them so that they do not continue to suffer in silence.

The judge told Kendrick he had abused his victims for his "own selfish and sexual enjoyment"

The judge told Kendrick he had abused his victims for his “own selfish and sexual enjoyment”

A “dangerous predator” who raped two young boys and sexually abused four other children has been jailed for 18 years.

Gerard Kendrick, of Vauxhall, was sentenced to a further six years on licence after pleading guilty to 16 sex offences at Liverpool Crown Court.

The 32-year-old abused three boys and three girls, aged between six and 12, over two decades.

His first offence was committed when he was 10 years old.

Detectives were led to Kendrick when they found a large number of indecent images of children on the computer of a known sex offender in Lancashire.

They used technology to establish that the photos, which included images of one of the rape victims, had been taken at Kendrick’s home and distributed via the internet.

‘Fetishes and perversions’

The rape of a six-year-old boy took place in the last two years, the court heard.

Judge Robert Warnock told Kendrick he had abused his victims for his “own selfish and sexual enjoyment”.

“You did not have any consideration whatsoever for the welfare or innocence of those children. It seems that you regarded them as objects available to satiate your own fetishes and perversions,” he added.

Det Sgt Richie Shillito from Merseyside Police said: “Gerard Kendrick subjected his six victims to vicious and violent sexual assaults for his own sexual gratification.”

He praised the “bravery and courage” of the victims that “led to a dangerous sexual predator being sent to jail”.

Kendrick, who has no previous convictions, was ordered to sign the sex offenders’ register for life. He will have to serve 12 years before being able to apply for parole.

A PAEDOPHILE who preyed on three children has been jailed for 18 years.

Peter Gillett was convicted of raping a young girl when she was between the ages of 13 and 15.

One of the charges included multiple rapes against the teenager, along with indecent assault, and an assault that caused her actual bodily harm.

The self-employed 59-year-old was also convicted child cruelty and gross indecency towards a boy aged between eight and 15, and indecent assault against a girl aged between 13 and 15.

Lewes Crown Court heard that the offences against the children, who were known to him, took place between 1988 and 1996.

He also stood trial for possessing a stun gun at his home in Arundel Road in Littlehampton when police arrested him in 2016.

Detective Constable Rees Hopcraft said: “These offences came to light in 2016 when the two girls, by then in their forties, contacted us after learning of online postings suggesting that Gillett had committed sexual offences against the boy.

“We investigated and gradually uncovered a series of offences of sexual abuse by him against all three victims when they were young and vulnerable children, over a period of years.

“All three gave evidence against him and after a long trial, during which Gillett discharged his counsel and defended himself, the jury found him guilty of the sexual offences.

“We will always take seriously and follow up such reports, regardless of how long ago the events are said to have occurred.”

At his trial in February, he was found not guilty of a further rape and indecent assault against the first girl, and one charge of indecent assault against the boy.

He was jailed for 18 years for the offences, and for one year concurrent for possessing the stun gun.

Brighton Argus

A Littlehampton man has been sentenced to 18 years in prison over a series of child sex offences in Crawley.

Police said that at Lewes Crown Court, on February 16, Peter Gillett, 59, of Arundel Road, was convicted of seven counts of non-recent sexual offences in Crawley, some involving multiple occasions, against two young girls and a young boy.

Sentencing awaited the outcome of a separate trial for Gillett for possession of a stun gun found at his address when he was arrested in 2016, police said.

They added he was convicted of that offence, too, and was given a 12-month sentence to run concurrently with the sex offence sentencing.

A court-imposed reporting restriction had prohibited publication of news of the sex offence sentences until the stun gun offence had been dealt with.

Police said Gillett will be a registered sex offender for life.

He was convicted of: two counts of rape, two of indecent assault, one of multiple offences of rape and indecent assault, one of causing actual bodily harm, against a girl; one count of gross indecency and a count of child cruelty against a boy and one count of indecent assault against a girl.

He was found not guilty of a count of rape and a count of indecent assault against the first girl and one count of indecent assault against the boy, police added.

The prosecution followed an investigation by detectives from the West Sussex Safeguarding Investigations Unit.

Detective Constable Rees Hopcraft said the offences came to light in 2016 when the two female victims, then adults, contacted police ‘after learning of online postings suggesting that Gillett had committed sexual offences against the boy’.

DC Hopcraft added: “We investigated and gradually uncovered a series of offences of sexual abuse by him against all three victims when they were young and vulnerable children, over a period of years.

“All three gave evidence against him and after a long trial, during which Gillett discharged his counsel and defended himself, the jury found him guilty of the sexual offences.

“We will always take seriously and follow up such reports, regardless of how long ago the events are said to have occurred.”

THE arrest of the man at the head of a massive paedophile network led police to a pervert in Coventry, it has emerged.

Roderick Rowley, who stood as a candidate for the BNP in Coventry’s Woodlands Ward in the local elections in 2004, was jailed for 15 months in December after sending obscene images involving children.

The 51-year-old admitted 14 charges of making indecent photographs, four of distributing them and one charge of possessing an image for distribution.

Rowley was arrested at what was then his home in Knightlow Avenue, Willenhall, Coventry, in February last year.

Police tracked down Rowley after arresting Oliver Smith in January last year.

Smith, aged 39, formerly of Rotherfield Road, Sheldon, Birmingham, was the head of a huge child pornography network.

Smith was jailed for three years and nine months on Monday for making, distributing and possessing more than 2,000 images of children.

He traded pictures with more than 630 people.

Smith had been found guilty of four charges of making indecent photographs, four of distributing and two of possessing them.

Birmingham Crown Court was told he sent 1,848 pictures and film clips involving children as young as three months.

Sentencing Smith, Judge Phillip Gregory said: “I cannot describe the utter vileness of the photos you considered it appropriate to investigate, download onto your computer, store, and distribute to other like-minded people interested in such gross sexual contact with young children.”
