***CHARGED*** David Cardwell - Bristol - Operations Department Practitioner Stung, Many Kids Safeguarded!
22nd March 2018 - David Cardwell - A broken position of trust!!
David Cardwell has pleaded guilty to three counts of sexual communication with a child aged from 12 to 14 years of age, and possessing over 1200 prohibited images of children.
A terrifying prospect when you consider the level of trust he would've yielded working within the field as an operational department practitioner.
Name: David Cardwell
Action: ARRESTED & CHARGED!!
Outcome: Charged, awaiting court appearence in April. He's charged with 3 counts of sexual communication with a minor & posession of indecent images.
On 22nd March 2018, Justice for the Innocent successfully exposed David Cardwell in Bristol at his place of work, Southmead Hospital. What makes this case one of the most concerning, is not only the content of evidence, but a clear break in his position of trust! This man worked as the Regional Operational Department Practitioner and was arrested with clear evidence and confession of sexually grooming what we knew to be not only one of our Decoys, but three of them! One 13 years old, a second 14 years old and horrifically, a pre-teen Decoy only 12 years of age!!
The evidence collected in this case demonstrated sexual grooming of a slow nature with months of chat logs collected.
This case has been printed as an article in Bristol Post News as well as our video footage being watched nearly 200,000 times with approximately 500 shares! It is clear that the public feel mortified with this news, due to his position and the nature of his sexual abuse online. But we thank everyone who has shared this news as public awareness is very much at the heart of what we do!
We also note that whilst this article seems balanced in its views, it does draw attention to the wide debate on the procedures used during our stings as to whether they are appropriate.
In summer 2017 it was suggested that the groups might do more harm than good.
As always when this question is raised, I share my response: Our police force simply do not have the time, resources or finances to catch these predators! We will continue our hard work in a professional and safe manner to ensure that these monsters are handed to the police for the justice our children deserve! At the end of the day, what's the most important thing here? Whether we have governance? Or whether or not there is one less monster hiding behind a screen, causing lifelong catastrophic emotional turmoil for the victims they prey on ? I only hope no real children are involved here!
Another man exposed for what he truly is and one of the most disturbing cases I've experienced!
