The vark who was caught with his pants down outside a primary school has been sentenced to 10 years in jail after being found guilty on child porn charges at the Parow Regional Court.
Heinrich Bosman, 51, pleaded guilty to more than 5000 charges of being in possession of child pornography after he was busted in a sting operation in 2018.
The father of two was dubbed the “Parow Perv” after he was nabbed outside Parow West primary by officers of the Bellville Family Violence, Child Protection and Sexual Offences Unit following an investigation.
At the time, SAPS’ Captain FC van Wyk said Bosman was caught masturbating in view of the children over a period of time and some pupils said he offered them money to get into his vehicle, but they had refused.
The palie called the cops and four of the kids gave detailed descriptions of his car – a green Audi – and told cops they were offered R50 and R10 for sexual favours.
Det Sgts Randall Davids and Conrad van Zyl conducted a sting operation at the school and pounced on Bosman, catching him with his pants down in his car that was parked near the school entrance.
During a search of his home, cops confiscated various electronic devices containing over 5000 images of child porn.
During his appearances at Bellville Magistrates’ Court, Bosman was granted R3000 bail and ordered to live with his girlfriend in Claremont for the duration of the trial.
He was found guilty last month and yesterday returned to Parow Regional Court where he was handed a 10-year sentence.
His lawyer Labiek Samuels of Samuels, Manan and Associates says none of the school-related charges were brought to trial, only the child pornography charges.
“He pleaded guilty to 5432 charges of child porn. The images of toddlers and minors were on his laptop and downloaded from the internet,” said Samuels.
“There were no additional charges listed and only the charges of possession of child porn were included in the trial.
“At this stage it is not clear which prison he will be sent to.”
He says during the judgement, the judge described Bosman’s acts as “vile”.
“In reading out her judgement, she described his actions as vile and noted that while he pleaded guilty, she had a responsibility to protect society and children from him.”
Bosman will be listed on the National Register for Sex Offenders and has also been declared unfit to own a gun.
