US Court Indicts Paedophile Imprisoned in Thailand

Canadian-born US citizen Glen Richard Allen, already imprisoned in Thailand, has now been indicted by a US District Court in his hometown of Seattle. Allen was arrested along with several other men after evidence of his sexual interference with girls as young as 11-years-old came to light in 2007.

Thailand, the 23rd of June 2010 [Pattaya Daily News]: Thailand’s Crimes Against Women & Children Suppression Division arrested Allen, along with two Brits, Maurice John Praill and Stephen James Ellison and a Finn Ilkka Ylikolola in March of 2007. The four were all charged with several counts of sexually interfering with underage girls.

Already sentenced to 16-years in a Thai prison, the Seattle District Court earlier this month indicted Allen for his heinous crimes. The US Attorney’s Office has released a statement saying that Allen is in and will remain in Thai prison over his offences.

Allen, who retired to the seaside resort town of Pattaya on Thailand’s Eastern Seaboard in 1997, was caught in March of 2007 with a catalogue of some 200-300 DVD’s depicting himself sexually interfering with children as young as 11-years-old. Arrested in his Pattaya City condominium, along with Praill, Ellison and Ylikolola, Allen was eventually sentenced to 16-years in prison by a Thai court. Consequently Praill was found to have been convicted on child sex offenses in Thailand prior to this matter, returning to his ways upon being handed a 14-year suspended sentence.

In the trial Allen was convicted by overwhelming evidence against him which included the testimonies of several of the girls he abused, four of which appeared in charge papers, whilst the alleged “procurer” of the children also testified against him.

The “procurer” told the court; “Allen made it clear that he preferred females, approximately 12 years old.” Allen also reportedly instructed her that if asked why she was bringing children to his residence to say that Allen was providing English lessons. Despite evidence showing the abuse of over 200 girls, catalogued on DVD, no count of the number of videos presented to the court was ever recorded.

Allen’s indictment in the US over his crimes follows a similar case taken against Craig Thomas Carr from Kent, arrested in Cambodia and charged in the US for sex tourism-related crimes.
