Pedophile sentenced to 15 years

A CAIRNS pedophile has been jailed for 15 years for the raping of his step-daughter and sharing the video on the internet.

The 30-year-old Mt Sheridan father, who was sentenced yesterday to 15 years’ jail after pleading guilty in Cairns District Court on Thursday to 88 child pornography and sex offences, has told the court he could never ask for his family’s forgiveness.

The offences included three federal offences and 85 state charges including more than 70 for producing and trading child pornography, two of rape, four of incest and 11 of indecent treatment.

Angelo Crawford – Top 10 Most Wanted Sex Offender List – CAPTURED


A 51-year-old Worcester man on the state’s Top 10 Most Wanted Sex Offender List was arrested yesterday at a motel in Malden, two days after his name first appeared on the roster, State Police said.

Angelo Crawford, whom police had been seeking for the past three years, was arrested at Town Line Motel on outstanding warrants. The charges are two counts of indecent assault and battery on a child under age 14, assault and battery with a knife, selling sex, intimidating a witness, and failing to register as a sex offender.

There were four outstanding arrest warrants, from Suffolk Superior Court, Boston District Court, and Worcester District Court.

Troopers said they began receiving tips about his whereabouts shortly after posting his name and picture on the Top 10 Most Wanted Sex Offender List. Crawford has been classified as a Level 3 sex offender, a category the state uses to define those with a “high risk” of committing future sex crimes.

“Sometimes it takes a long time to find people who don’t want to be found,” said Trooper Eric Benson, a State Police spokesman. “Since his name went on the list, this was very fast. It was outstanding, extraordinary.”

He said the tips sent investigators to Mattapan, Roxbury, Cambridge, and eventually the motel in Malden, where Crawford had been living. Troopers arrested him shortly after midnight without incident.

Troopers booked Crawford at the State Police barracks in Danvers, where he was held without bail. Crawford will be arraigned in Salem District Court tomorrow.
