Paedophile who chronicled his sick attacks is sent to prison after his relative finds a list of victims with ratings under his mattress

April 2nd, 2012

Paul Wilson a vile paedophile had the habit of maintaining a sick scorecard of his victims during his ten year campaign of sex attacks.

His sickness came into light when a relative happened to find a twisted list of his child victims which was hidden beneath his mattress. The 30-year-old has been jailed indefinitely for the public protection.

In one such terrifying attack he lured a 10-year-old victim into his Newcastle home with the promise of pocket money and computer games. But once inside he locked the youngster in the home and sexually assaulted him despite his desperate pleas to be let free.

His perverted terror actions dated back to back to 2001 and included a string of attacks on at least three “vulnerable and innocent” children on Tyneside.

In September 2009 he was handed just 21 months after attacking a 13-year-old child. But within months of his release on January 19, 2010, the full scale of his horrifying abuse came to light.

A family member discovered a list of at least 12 victims which were rated by the pervert and eventually lead to his arrest .

Judge Roger Thorn QC sentencing told Wilson that at 30 years of age it was time of his reckoning. In the 15 years of his offending he had become a danger to the public and the risk and harm from him was so grave that he must be imprisoned for the public protection.

Prosecuting, Bridie Smurthwaite, said the police were contacted about the list and they examined the names. It had quite a number of names of individuals and police contacted these individuals.

Wilson, 30, from Newcastle, admitted sexual assault of a boy under 13- years-old, nine offences of indecently assaulting a girl under 16-years-old and five offences of indecently assaulting a boy under 16-years-old.

Wilson was sentenced for minimum of four-and-a-half years before he could be considered for parole and was condemned for life on the sex offenders register.

Det Insp Paul Race, who leads the Rape Investigation Team at Northumbria Police, said the culprit cynically targeted innocent children. The Detective hoped that the sentencing would bring some satisfaction to his victims for starting a considerable sentence which will keep him away from children for many years to come.
