Vincent Rank Biography
61-year-old Vincent Rank had arranged a sexual photoshoot with the 11-year-old boy, who was forced to wear scanty underwear at the pervert’s home in Slough, Berkshire, according to a court.
The transvestite sex offender uploaded the photos to a nylon fetish website, one of several X-rated websites operating in the privacy of his shed, a judge said.
The Crown Court jury, which convicted second-level felonies for indecent photos of a child, heard that the director of adult pornography intended to make money off those perverted photos.
Summarizing the crimes, Judge Heather Norton said: “The first series of photos shows the victim in a very short, low-cut and tight dress that his wife wore in fetish clubs and what a witness was marked with ‘high’ heels . She stripper “… she was dressed to look like a prostitute or a prostitute.
The judge added: “The victim recalled that the photo session was for fun and that she liked it, but that does not make something inappropriate into something appropriate. Besides being inappropriate, these photos were indecent.
Rank had taken a second set of photos of the same girl, wearing nylon stockings and suspenders, but her face was covered with a hat, and this time an adult woman was faking sex with her.
After two trials at Reading Crown Court, Rank was acquitted of four indecent assaults on a girl under the age of 16.
He was also acquitted of one count of attempted rape, rape, and sexual activity of a woman under the age of 16 and another count of gross indecency involving a child under the age of 14.
Rank also broke free from possessing extreme pornographic images, some of which involved animals.
Rank defended himself during the trial and told the jury that the charges against him were part of a plot to steal his lucrative pornography business.
Farrhat Arshad, who defended Rank, said: “He has type 2 diabetes and extreme varicose veins. They are huge. The combination of his conditions makes him extremely vulnerable from a medical point of view.
“Because of everything that has happened, he wants to leave the porn industry. The websites work, but he hasn’t created any content. His intention is undoubtedly to liquidate these sites.
Rank, disguising himself, ran two sites with names reminiscent of his garden shed.
One of his websites was a 1950s fetish website for those interested in nylon, which Rank described as “flawless.” The other was released in 2004 and contained adult films.
Rank filmed the content of these websites in various places around his house and even in the backyard.
Judge Norton, who sentenced Rank, said: “The photos were uploaded to a pornographic website at one point. It is a website that you create and maintain. You also have a nylon fetish.
“These photos were taken, I believe, and uploaded to a pornographic website where they were accessible to a large number of viewers and were made for commercial purposes.”
