Exeter Chinese restaurant worker watched child rape videos
A restaurateur has been caught with child rape videos after police raided his home.
Kai Wong was traced to his flat above the Golden Pond restaurant after using file sharing sites to access movies which showed children as young as five being abused.
Father-of-three Wong, aged 40, was a director of the restaurant on the old A30 at Rockbeare, near Whimple, until his arrest last summer but has since moved out and given up his role.
He was a keen supporter of the charity Mind and organised Science Fiction conventions to raise money for them at the restaurant, which has also been known as the Oriental Promise.
Wong, now of no fixed abode, admitted three counts of making indecent images and was jailed for nine months, suspended for two years, and ordered to attend sex offender treatment with the probation service.
He was also ordered to sign on the sex offenders register and made subject to a sexual harm prevention order which will allow the police to monitor his internet use by Recorder Mr Jeremy Wright at Exeter Crown Court.
He told him:”The images you saw involved children who were suffering abuse and for whom the future will no doubt hold psychological problems.
“The aggravating features are that some of the children were very young and very vulnerable and they were being subjected to hard core activity. They were moving images.
“I take into consideration everything I have heard about you being a hard-working man who tried your best to bring up your children and save your marriage.
“You are a man of otherwise good character and the best way to ensure this does not happen again is to give you help.”
Miss Janice Eagles, prosecuting, said police raided the flat above the restaurant in June as a result of intelligence and found Wong having breakfast with his family.
They removed computers and hard drives and found 43 movies of which 31 were in the worst category, showing children as young as five being raped.
One movie contained elements of sadism because the little girl who was being abused had her face covered by a cloth.
