Convictions in Trial Involving Satanic Ritual Abuse of Children

I hate to post this so close to Christmas, but I do it for those who are still being abused and are not believed, or fear no one will believe them.

Child sexual abuse and Satanic Ritual Abuse continue, no matter what day of the year it is. Many children are even sexually abused on Christmas day.


“Two pagans were sentenced to more than a decade in prison today after being found guilty of abusing children in bizarre sex rituals as part of a witches’ coven.

Peter Petrauske and Jack Kemp were said to have worn ceremonial robes and pagan paraphernalia while they abused young girls in Cornwall during the 1970s.

Police believe one of their victims may have been as young as three when the abuse started.

The judge described the victims’ experiences as ‘nothing less than harrowing’ as he condemned their ‘utterly horrifying’ crimes, sentencing Petrauske to 18 years in prison and Kemp to 14.

The pair, aged 72 and 69, showed little emotion as they were led from the dock at Truro Crown Court and into custody.

Petrauske, who described himself as the high priest of a white witches’ coven in St Ives, was convicted 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.

He was found not guilty of four other sexual offences, following more than 11 hours’ deliberation.

‘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.

‘During the course of this trial some of the evidence in this case in relation to the offences committed against young children has been nothing less than harrowing – it has featured ritualistic sexual abuse of young children.’

He added that many of the pair’s victims had little prospect of recovering from their experiences and had suffered years of emotional problems including flashbacks.

The judge described their offences as ‘utterly horrifying’, say they were ‘terrifying events’ involving ‘defenceless children’.

‘Finally the truth about your lies and your undoubted propensities has caught up with you,’ he concluded.

The jury of nine men and three women are still considering their verdicts on several other sexual offences.

Mr Cottle said he would accept a majority verdict on the remaining charges. The pair’s victims gave harrowing evidence from behind a screen during the three-week trial. They said they were abused by their tormentors, then given money and sweets to buy their silence.

In a dramatic twist, witnesses also named murdered pagan Peter Solheim and notorious Cornish paedophile Stan Pirie as among their abusers.

Solheim was a 56-year-old parish councillor whose body was found five miles off the Lizard Peninsula in Cornwall by fishermen on June 18 2004.

He had been drugged and mutilated by a machete or an axe, and his girlfriend Margaret James was later convicted of conspiring to murder him, though her accomplice was never discovered.”

    Creepy, evil, sick, twisted, and satanic. My heart goes out to those poor children to have to endure such things in such large doses.

    First of all, what a coincidence, for me, to hear Solheim’s name twice in the same week. He was recently briefly mentioned on Coast to Coast AM and, now, in this article. They were discussing paranormal things at the time. I didn’t really know his story until now, and I hadn’t a chance to research who he was. Thank you for the info on who he was and his involvement in this story.

    Second, I consider myself Pagan, and can tell you that these people are NOT, nor do they represent, true Paganism. What these monsters did was found a way to give an excuse to their behavior by calling their practices a religion. This is disgusting and embarrassing to Pagans. These people are nothing more than sick, sick people and I honestly wish they all ended up dead the same way Solheim did. I usually never wish such a horrid thing, but child murderers and molesters are an exception.

      I hope what I said doesn’t make me a bad person. I just HATE seeing that pedophiles found an excuse for their sick thoughts and got away with it.

      Hi Casey. Thanks for commenting. I feel the Daily Mail called them “Pagan” to avoid calling them what they are –worshipers of Satan. The Daily Mail, along with many other media outlets have been intimidated in the past 20 years to not use the term “Satanic Ritual Abuse” because this form of abuse is considered a myth.

      Not only is SRA real, but many children suffer from this practice, and the denial of the media and disbelievers help the perpetrators to continue their ritualistic abuse.

      • Why Not? says:

        I’m glad you are covering this, Alethea. Even I found first-hand accounts of this (from a couple of members of my support group) so hard to ‘imagine.’ I believed them, as difficult as it was to hear their personal stories, it was a stark reminder of just how evil sexual abuse-exploitation of children really is – regardless of the “roles” the perpetrators are playing.
