Evil 8 paedophile Alfred John Impicciatore jailed for ten years

A paedophile who repeatedly raped a girl, pimped out by her own father in the so-called ‘Evil Eight’ case, has been sentenced to nine and a half years in jail.

Alfred John Impicciatore, 48, was sentenced on Monday after he chatted with the Perth girl’s father online, then visited their home in March 2015.

He raped the vulnerable girl four times, while her father – who is serving more than two decades in jail for his involvement – watched nearby and sometimes joined in.

Impicciatore was found guilty for his involvement in Australia’s most egregious child abuse case in November, after a judge-alone trial in the Western Australian District Court.

Judge Mark Herron said that Impicciatore had not showed any remorse or insight into his offending.

The court heard two of the charges against Impicciatore came out of admissions he made to police, which he then challenged and ‘disowned’.

Judge Herron said although there was no victim impact statement, he was sure there would be long-term effects on the girl’s mental health.

‘You had a perverted sexual interest in young girls and you were unable to resist acting on that interest,’ he said.

‘You took advantage of a girl who was extremely vulnerable.

‘Your actions were depraved and were entirely for your own sexual gratification.’

Impicciatore is the final abuser of the girl to be sentenced for his involvement in the notorious case.

Video of the girl’s police interview was played at the trial, during which she referred to Impicciatore as the ‘chubby man’ with a ’round face’ and the man with a black Chihuahua.

In his findings after the trial, Judge Herron said the girl described what happened to her in a ‘detached, unemotional way, almost as though the activities were normal’.

‘She spoke about sexual activity in explicit language, which I would not expect a 13-year-old girl to be able to explain,’ he said.

Before the trial, the case was adjourned several times because Impicciatore failed to show up to court and changed lawyers.

He even fled the state and had to be extradited from New South Wales.

Impicciatore must serve at least seven and a half years behind bars before he can be eligible for parole. 

The girl’s father, who cannot be named, pleaded guilty to dozens of charges and was sentenced in June 2016 to 22 and a half years in jail.

He later lost an appeal against the length of his sentence, which he had argued was manifestly excessive.

Eight men were originally implicated in the investigation, but one was never charged with offences related to the girl. 

The five other men also pleaded guilty to their involvement in the girl’s sexual abuse and received sentences ranging from three years to almost 13 years.

One of the paedophiles was evangelical Christian pastor Dawid Volmer, who was sentenced to ten and a half years’ prison in 2015 after he admitted to blindfolding the girl and raping her in front of her father.

Court heard horrific details at the time of how the ‘deviant’ father-of-two drugged and rubbed his genitals on the girl as she laid naked in tears on a bed. 

Ryan Trevor Clegg received the second longest sentence of the ‘Evil Eight’ after he pleaded guilty to 15 charges, including sexually penetrating and indecently recording a child.

Daily Mail Australia exclusively revealed in November last year Impicciatore’s vile tattoo reading ‘learn to love your inner monster’.

Impicciatore uploaded a photo of the ink to his Pinterest folder, ‘my tatts’, at some point before his arrest in late 2015.

The folder contained pictures of other tattoos on his forearms, one of which was clearly visible during court appearances.

The page was wiped from the internet along with his other social media accounts after his initial arrest.
