Pierre Michel Pavlov Rameau

(CNS): Dr Pierre Michel Pavlov Rameau, a former lecturer at the University College of the Cayman Islands, was in possession of tens (possibly hundreds) of thousands of pornographic images when he was arrested last year, the court was told when he appeared at a sentencing hearing Thursday. The crown has charged the maths professor with a dozen counts, which relate to around 1,600 indecent images and videos, and he has pleaded guilty. But the charges only scratch the surface of the amount of indecent pictures of children, including some showing victims estimated to be as young as three years old, that the 49-year-old man could have had in his possession before he was caught.

The police seized laptops, several hard drives, flash drives and his phone during a search of his home and work station at the college, following a complaint about the professor soliciting pictures from a student last year.

After several months of searching and interrogating the devices which were capable of holding massive amounts of information it became clear it could take literally years to properly document what was a lifetime collection of child pornography.

Adopting a practical approach after cataloging around 5,000 images, many of which were illegal, prosecutors charged Rameau with sample offences. Explaining to the court the extent of the collection, which in some cases were extreme pornography of a very serious nature, the crown said Rameau belonged to around 30 social media groups that shared these types of images, giving him access to even more than he had already saved on his own devices.

As crown counsel set out the facts of the case, they pointed to Rameau’s attitude towards his offending. Despite evidence to the contrary, he had claimed he was not sexually aroused by the images and had tried to justify his possession of the explicit material. The crown’s lawyers told the court that Rameau was soliciting pictures from teenage girls online while claiming to be far younger than his real age of 49.

Given the lack of relevant precedent cases and authorities in Cayman for this crime, Justice Carlisle Greaves adjourned the case following the crown’s submissions in order for the attorneys to seek out examples of similar cases from other comparable jurisdictions. The judge said that given the nature and quantity of imagery involved, he wanted to give the case very serious consideration based on more information.

Rameau was remanded back in custody and the hearing was set to resume on 6 June, when his sentence is expected to be handed down.

    Every photo taken of a child is a child victim being abused.
    Without the likes of Pavlov there would be no demand for the abusers
    There is no crime worse than a crime against our innocent children
    Pavlov is an oxygen thief and deserves the worst possible sentence the courts can give He needs to be ostracized by the community and . I hope his actions ruin the rest of his miserable life !!

    As sick as he is , is there any evidence he has physically abused children, which is far worse in my opinion.. Some of this vitriol should be addressed to the not insignificant number of local paedophiles and their nasty habit of picking on family or indirect family members . Too many times these sickos get away with it, as the families are reluctant to prosecute,to avoid embarassment to those concerned.

      He may not have physically touched these children but he helps create and encourages the environment that encourages children to be abused so although he may not have a physical involvement he is no less part of the abuse.

      There is enough vitriol to go around for both types of people. Being outraged about this doesn’t mean there is less outrage left to be directed at those who prey on their family members.

      This is a flawed argument I see too often.

    This probably all stemmed from his first visit to a legal porn site. Pornography is a demonic invention that is just as addictive as any narcotic and only leads to worse types of porn. Just as cocaine releases dopamine in your brain (which is what you are really addicted to) pornography does the same thing. In order to get the same type of “porn high”, continuous users will need to search for more graphic, immoral images and videos. It’s the same concept for a cocaine user to move onto crack.

    This is actually very common in today’s society, with 90% of males admitting to using porn regularly. Many, many men and some women SUFFER from this addiction and one could even say that it is an epidemic.

    I am not defending Pavlov in any way, but if we keep living in a sexualized world, you will see this happening to teachers, politicians, the average Joe and even your loved ones. This is what happens when you forget about good and evil and only consider what is legal/ illegal. Porn may be legal, but it is immoral, evil and will only lead you down darker roads.

      Ummm no. I’ve watched porn for many years and I can honestly say that never once have it caused me to want to watch child porn, in fact if the girl looks questionable young I don’t watch it. And before you jump to conclusions, I am married to the most beautiful woman in the world in my eyes and we BOTH watch it and HAVE watched it for years. We both think the human body is an amazing and beautiful thing but there are some varieties of porn ie below legal age, abusive, involving drugs, forced, that we both agree is perverse.

      For all those who look down on the naked form.. remember, we were all naked before Eve bit the apple and God had NO issue with it.

      • Eyes to see and ears to hear says:

        PORNOGRAPHY IS EVIL AND HATING ONLY THE ILLEGAL FORMS WILL GET US NOWHERE.

        Neither you nor your wife are satisfied sexually, so you turn to porn to fill the gaps. The irony is that porn is only going to create more space in between you and your spouse. Oh, and keep a watchful eye because there is a strong correlation between porn use and infidelity.

        “Legal porn” doesn’t always lead do child porn in particular. It can lead to other taboo materials such as incest, bestiality, homosexuality and too many more to mention. Different people will be attracted to different forms of evil. Do you know that most serial killers and rapists start out with a porn problem? You claim that legal porn is harmless, but please explain to me why “rape” and “sister” are some of the more popular topics on normal porn sites.

        With so many electronic devices (phones, computers, gaming systems, etc.) being able to connect to the internet, our children will inevitably view porn at some point. They will see taboo categories and think that they are normal, and try to reenact them. And you people wonder why society is the way it is!?

        Nobody looks down on the naked form, moron. The problem is that sexual intercourse should never be available for eyes to see at the click of a mouse. God had and has no issue with nakedness. It’s us that were unashamed of ourselves because at that point we weren’t running around f!@#ing every woman, man, boy, girl, object, animal in site.

          No no bo bo I am very satisfied and I don’t know what porn YOU watch but in the years I have watched it I have never looked at or been tempted to look at any of those you mentioned other than the occasional woman to woman, which my wife sometimes likes and will trigger at least 3 pages of spill from you. You have never watched porn form other countries, most of them will have a warning prior saying that their videos are not the same quality or does not suit the tastes of depraved American porn.

          Umm Adam and Eve didn’t sleep with their kids or animals, so that argument is invalid… Technically Adam and Eve at the time were the only men and women so technically they did sleep with every man and woman in sight so that argument is invalid… And it’s funny how Europe has a more liberal view on sexually explicit tv programming and has a much lower sexual crime rate than America so that argument is also invalid.. Self control is an amazing thing. It’s funny how in the days when porn were still photographs only and seeing someone’s ankle was more than most young boys could hope for, there were still serial killers and rapists.

          Obviously you do watch porn if you know the tags but firstly you must realize that those site are marketed towards AMERICANS! Secondly those tags are the same as tags on websites, they are simply a ploy to direct traffic to a particular website to attract customers/viewers, mostly, you guessed it AMERICANS!

          Society isn’t the way it is because of porn bo bo. Society is the way it is because of a few other factors include questionable parenting, not allowing children to fail to teach them they don’t always get what they want and a severe lack of discipline in additional to a myriad of other reasons. If porn was the cause of societies downfall, someone one have figured that out and stopped it.. so.. that point is invalid.

          Also, funny invention in regards to being able to see porn on tv.. pc’s.. phones.. games.. etc.. It’s an interesting concept called, wait for it, get a pen and paper to write it down so you can look it up.. “Parental Control”. IF parents took a more active role in what their kids were exposed to, then maybe just maybe the horrors you so vividly endorse maybe not come to be, or better yet, if parents took the time to sit their kids down and explain to them the birds or the bees and the value of a healthy relationship between two people who really love each other, and maybe what is acceptable and what isn’t or hell even bring that back into schools at say high school or middle school because the Lord knows the kids are starting to be sexually active younger.

          I know it won’t come back into schools because prudes like you would rather the kids having no information on what is acceptable and what isn’t when it comes to sex forcing the kids doing what they can to get their information for porn which would and could give them the wrong impression but hey what do I know right?

          You’re turn..

      This is a very alarming comment that appears to classify pedophilia as a “normal” sexual orientation. Was that the intent? Or was the aim just to be outspoken/controversial. Whatever, it paints the author in a very bad light and is a cause for concern.

      • Anonymous says:

        The author is trying to “subtly” employ the slippery slope argument. In essence “If we allow homosexuality because it’s simply a sexual orientation, we will inevitably have to allow pedohilia, necrophilia etc. After all, those can be seen as sexual orientations as well.” The goal of this argument is of course to conflate homosexuality with pedophilia and other such behaviour in order to show that only heterosexuality should be allowed.

        Needless to say a very flawed argument

      I worked with Pavlov and found him quite charming and personable. I did, however, think there was something not quite right but could not figure it out. He was unmarried and dressed like a gay man but did not exactly fit that profile.

      I knew he made frequent trips to Cuba, which also made me wonder. I figured it had some sexual context, but again didn’t feel I could make a reliable guess as to the exit nature.

      And, no, I had never heard anything via the grapevine.

      So this took me by surprise, but it does make some sense based on my intuition that something was off.

      We should always pay attention to our psychic red flags.

        This is an obvious deflection of the original commenter. The real issue is not about Pavlov. The real issue is that an organization’s middle management and administration can be so toxic about targeting their enemies in regards to unsubstatiated claims that they would purposively ignore the signs about Pavlov, as long as Pavlov shares the same enemies as middle management and the administration.

        • Anonymous says:

          As I have asked the original poster, it would be nice if you shared more information… Who are the “enemies” which middle management and administration are targeting, for what reasons, etc? What signs did management and admin ignore about Pavlov, other than he looks like a complete freak? Why was Pavlov “in” with middle management and admin (was he a brown-noser?) It would be nice to have some additional details added…that is how you expose those who run the show, and perhaps stop them from doing what they’ve been doing.

A sociopath is borne out of childhood trauma or abuse (eg. poor parenting, child sexual abuse, verbal or emotional abuse, physical abuse, broken homes, etc.).
