Paedophile who molested more than 100 boys jailed

Hong Kong, Jan 9 A serial paedophile who admitted abusing more than 100 boys over a period of two decades began a three-year jail term in Hong Kong Thursday.

Kenny Chung Chi-man, 41, last year gave money to two boys aged nine and 11 after molesting them in his home, months after being released from a previous 11-month jail term for child abuse.

He told the police he “couldn’t help touching young boys once he saw them” and confessed to sexual contact with more than 100 boys since he was in his early 20s.

Chung admitted luring scores of boys to his home in the city’s urban Sham Shui Po area after meeting them in internet cafes and other places, Hong Kong’s District Court heard.

At a hearing Wednesday, Chung pleaded guilty to five counts of indecent assault and four counts of soliciting for an immoral purpose involving the two boys. He was jailed for 38 months.

Judge Flora Cheng told Chung he showed a lack of remorse and was highly likely to offend again. A jail sentence was needed because he required rigorous supervision, she said.
