'White witch coven' took part ritualistic sex abuse of young
Two men deny string of attacks in Cornwall on children as young as three
from late 1970s to 2009

Members of a "white witch coven" in Cornwall donned ceremonial robes and
used daggers in ritualistic sex abuse of young girls, a court has
Peter Petrauske, 72, who allegedly told police he was high priest
of the coven, and Jack Kemp, 69, were said to have been involved in criminal
"pagan ceremonies" over a 30-year period.
Children were plied with
alcohol before being made to undress in front of a crowd of men wearing robes,
it was claimed.
The alleged victims, the youngest of whom aged three to
five, were then abused by their tormentors before being given money and sweets
to buy their silence, Truro crown court was told.
When Petrauske was
arrested last year, detectives discovered daggers, candles, incense and lavender
at his home, the court heard.
The men, both from Falmouth, deny a string
of charges relating to the abuse of children from the late 1970s to 2009.
Petrauske also denies one charge of rape....
Jason Beal, prosecuting,
said some of the assaults took the form of rituals with the young girls' wrists
tied. He said a dagger had been involved and wax poured onto the bodies,
according to testimony from some of the victims.
One witness had told
police that Petrauske claimed to be involved in a coven of white witches. Beal
said: "She was taken to a house where pagans were present. Jack Kemp was present
and 'German Pete' [Petrauske] was also there. She was given alcohol, told to
dance and take her clothes off.".... http://goo.gl/u5MmH
