The child was 13 MONTHS OLD. This guy should NEVER get out of jail.
An Oamaru father who attempted to rent his baby son to a paedophile has been sentenced to nearly nine years imprisonment on a raft of charges.
The 27-year-old father was sentenced today to eight years and 10 months imprisonment with a minimum non-parole period of five years after being convicted of charges including sexual violation, indecent assault and making, possessing and distributing an objectionable publication.
The man was arrested as part of a police operation that began last July involving staff across the country including Northland, Auckland City, Eastern, Canterbury and Southern districts.
The operation targeted alleged paedophiles in New Zealand and overseas, including Aaron John Ellmers aged 41, who last month was sentenced to 20 years’ preventative detention.
The Oamaru father was charged when police caught him attempting to rent out his 13-month-old son to Ellmers for $500.
