    Convicted rapist denied bail on fresh porn charges

    March 3, 2020


    A convicted child rapist serving a five-year suspended sentence has been denied bail on new charges of child pornography in the Kempton Park Magistrate’s Court in Gauteng.

    Jean van Loggerenberg, 34, applied for bail on Tuesday after his arrest in February following an investigation comprising local law enforcement agencies and US crime forensic experts.

    The investigation resulted in the arrest of five men, including Van Loggerenberg, in separate locations, including Pretoria and Kempton Park, after they were allegedly found in possession of explicit child abuse images and videos.

    Van Loggerenberg’s previous suspended sentence expires on March, 15.

    Arguing in court before Magistrate Veena Krishna, state prosecutor Takalani Mukhumo opposed bail.

    The State alleged that he downloaded and uploaded images of child pornography via the internet.

    According to the investigating officer, who opposed bail, Van Loggerenberg was earlier convicted of luring five complainants, who were aged 15 at the time, through a gaming platform on the internet.

    He pleaded guilty and was convicted of statutory sexual assault of minors in March 2015. He was handed a wholly suspended sentence of five years. He was also ordered to pay the five complainants R10 000 each and his name was added to the National Register for Sex Offenders.
