Adelaide paedophile Geoffrey William Moyle sentenced over abuse of Cambodian children

An Adelaide man who admitted to filming himself sexually abusing children in Cambodia before publishing the videos online has been sentenced to eight years in prison.

Geoffrey William Moyle, 48, pleaded guilty to sexually assaulting multiple children between 2002 and 2005 while allegedly working as a foreign aid worker for the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, a claim DFAT has refuted.

Described as an Australian first, a “very generous” out-of-court settlement was reached between Moyle and one of his child victims, though an exact dollar figure was not specified.

Moyle was sentenced to eight years and nine months in prison with a non-parole period of four years and six months.

He was also sentenced to nine months for possessing child exploitation material in Australia in 2019.

In his sentencing remarks, Judge Paul Cuthbertson said Moyle was at a low risk of reoffending and described him as a “loving father, son and husband”.

“He feels remorseful for his actions and takes responsibility for them,” he said.

However, Judge Cuthbertson said he could not ignore the seriousness of the crimes.

“Over a period of approximately two to three years, the offender was involved in the most vile sexual activity against children of the age of about 10 to 12 years old,” he said.

“He must have known the children he sexually assaulted will be exploited, that this activity towards them will likely wreck their lives and their futures.”

In her impact statement, the only victim to be identified said she suffered serious trauma.

Judge Cuthberson told the court that she was very frightened and that Moyle treated her as if she was an object.

Moyle’s nine-month state sentence for the child exploitation charges were backdated to when he was arrested in June 2019.

His Commonwealth sentence of eight years and nine months began at the end of that sentence.

He will be eligible for parole in 2024.

Speaking outside court today, Australian Federal Police (AFP) Detective Superintendent Gail McClure said law enforcement would “continue to work relentlessly to bring these sort of evil perpetrators to justice”.

“I’d like to issue a warning to any other individual who would seek to prey upon vulnerable children: the AFP and its partners will come for you, no matter when the abuse occurred and no matter where you are in the world,” she said.

“There’s nowhere for you to hide.”
