'Paedophile Manual' Sex Offender Jailed

28th September 2018
News, Mansfield

A 23-year-old man who had a ‘step-by-step guide’ for paedophiles has been jailed.

Adam Rack, formerly of Heathfield Way, Mansfield, had a guide which gave information on how to engage in sexual relationships with children. Rack was sentenced to seven years at Nottingham Crown Court today (27 September).

He pleaded guilty to 12 child sex offences when he first appeared at Nottingham Crown Court on 11 May 2018. 

Rack was arrested after officers intercepted an attempted upload of indecent images and tracked the IP address to his house. 

Rack’s laptops and phones were seized and an investigation was launched. Hundreds of indecent images and videos were recovered throughout the investigation and a 12-year-old boy was identified as a victim. Rack had abused him over two years when he was between the ages of eight and ten. 

Detectives also recovered a 170-page ‘paedophile manual’ that described itself as a ‘step-by-step guide’ on how to engage in sexual relationships with children.

Rack pleaded guilty to the following 12 offences:

•         Sexual touching of a child under 13-years

•         Engaging in sexual activity in the presence of a child

•         Three counts of making indecent images

•         Possession of a paedophile manual

•         Possession of prohibited images

•         Possession of extreme porn

•         Four counts of distribution of indecent images 

Rack was sentenced to seven years; a four year custodial sentence and three years on extended licence. He will remain on the Sex Offenders Register for life as well as being the subject of a Sexual Harm Prevention Order. He was also given a life-long restraining order meaning he will never be allowed to contact the victim or the victim’s family.  

Detective Constable Andrew Taylor said: “The 12-year-old victim has showed immense bravery in disclosing this to us, meaning that we were able to offer an overwhelming amount of evidence, leading to a guilty plea with no trial necessary. He is a credit to himself and his family and I hope the sentencing today can act as a positive step in his recovery. 

“The sheer volume of indecent images and videos that Rack had collected really highlights what a dangerous man he is. He showed no remorse throughout the investigation and I am happy that he is now behind bars.”
