Bryan Douglas Cole, 72, had planned a child abuse holiday to Thailand. The former teacher was also obsessed with violent child abuse. Torture Victorian County Court judge Mark Dean said he was a ‘sadist paedophile’ and sentenced the retired teacher to five years’ jail, with minimum three years.
A retired schoolteacher who organised a holiday to Thailand so he could sexually abuse children will be released from prison in three years.
Bryan Douglas Cole, 72, was also ‘obsessed with the violent sexual abuse and torture of children’, which angered Victorian County Court judge Mark Dean.
‘You are a sadistic pedophile who has been unmasked,’ he told Cole during sentencing on Monday.
In an Australian legal precedent, Cole pleaded guilty to preparing and planning sexual intercourse with a child in another country.
For planning a child abuse holiday in Thailand, the Melbourne man was sentenced to five years’ in jail, with a minimum three-year non-parole period to be served behind bars.
Justice Dean said Cole held hundreds of images and videos of the ‘repugnant and depraved’ abuse of children that were uncovered on computers, USBs and an iPhone, which police seized during raids in March this year.
