Guilty of Ritual Sex Abuse
If ever one is reminded of the saying ‘life is stranger than fiction’ here is one to add to a growing list.
Using pagan artifacts naval man, Peter Petrauske, 72, who claims to be a high priest, and former soldier Jack Kemp, 69, were charged and convicted with ritual sex abuse on girls.
Belonging to a white witch coven in sedate St. Ives, Cornwall, South England, Petrauske and Kemp participated in ceremonies that involved plying girls as young as 3 years old with alcohol, stripping them in front of white-robed men followed by sexual abuse to be given sweets, money and threats to silence them. Prosecutor Jason Beal recounted that children’s wrists, and other unforgiveable acts of torture.
The initial charge was unrelated when Kemp was arrested on an unrelated incident that led to widespread rumors in their hometown of Falmouth and victims coming to light. A former parish councillor Peter Solheim was linked to witchcraft in Cornwall.
Petrauske was only found guilty of one count of rape, one count of aiding and abetting an attempt to rape and one count of indecent assault. Kemp was found guilty of indecent assault and indecency with a child.
Defended by female members of the coven, if the act of soul theft they carried out on young girls is true, and does not pertain to false accusations because many are waiting for justice to be done to all victims of paedophilia, one prays that all those involved are found, charged and convicted. As it stands, other charges are under consideration for Petrauske and Kemp.
For what reason Prosecutor Jason Beal denounces that their crimes against humanity were related to their pagan beliefs is on unclear, but disgusted accused them of sexual abuse plain and simple. Petrauske made it clear that he has been a pagan for 55 years, and even possesses an altar in his bedroom as evidence. Should this membership somehow make a difference on the sentence?
The UK Pagan Council lists the following unvetted covens:
- Vectis Phoenix Coven, Isle of Wight
- Tubals Forge, Lincolnshire
- Coven of The Crooked Path, Watford Hertfordshire
- The Coven of The Sacred Flame, Cheshire
- Templi Kalendae, Birmingham
- The Crystal Cauldron, Cheshire
- Brighton Coven, Brighton
- Folk I The Wood, Sheffield
- Coven of Arianrhod, Cornwall Devon, Plymouth, England
- Coven of the Mother of the Earth, West Midlands
- Cauldron of the Allta Cailleach, East Dorset/West New Forest
- Cotswold Coven, Cheltenham, Gloucestershire
Not wanting to smear everyone with the same brush, knowingly what that feels like, apparently, they follow different paths. As far as Petrauske and Kemp
‘I am satisfied that you have both had a lifelong sexual interest in young female children,’ judge Graham Cottle told the defendants during sentencing.
‘You were two of the surviving members of a paedophile ring. Together with others whose names have been repeatedly featured in this trial, you were members of a ring that operated in the Falmouth area in the 70s and 80s.
