I think you missed my point. I worked with Rob Wilde, he didn’t have much to do with any of those cases. He was just a spokesman and face.

I don't recall ever hearing Rob Wilde's name over the years of closely following the Claremont murders case.

He was mentioned once that I know of and that was when he revealed that they were looking for the missing Toyota Camry, the one they never found ... and that was before the trial started.

Remember Channel 7 mistakenly reporting an indigenous guy as the suspect when Kelly was arrested and showed photos of him across their networks, it seems he has won a case against them and 7 have had to pay out, I hope he got a massive pay day :)
A rare small victory also for 'Joe Public', given how much nonsense the media are not held accountable for these days - great outcome!

Seven West Media pays out man wrongfully accused of Cleo Smith abduction

Seven West Media has been forced to pay out the man it wrongfully identified in news reports as Cleo Smith’s abductor.
Terrance Flowers, who goes by his mother’s last name of Kelly on Facebook, became the subject of a case of mistaken identity when the Kerry Stokes-owned media conglomerate incorrectly identified him as Cleo’s abductor Terence Kelly.

The 27-year-old Nyamal man lives in Karratha, whereas Kelly, who is in prison after pleading guilty to kidnapping Cleo, is 36 and lived in Carnarvon.
Mr. Flowers said the ordeal had left him fearful to leave his home alone, having been approached by people in the street who thought he was the accused, asking him what his intentions were for Cleo and whether he was planning to kill her.
He filed a lawsuit against Seven West Media, and on Wednesday the almost four-month ordeal was settled in a Perth court, leaving the innocent man “very relieved”.

Mr. Flowers appeared via video link from his hometown of Karratha and after the proceedings told WAtoday he was glad the situation was over.
"I’m glad that it’s all over and it was settled and now just looking forward to moving on with my life and spending time with my six-month-old little boy." he said.
The matter was all over within minutes as both parties had agreed to a settlement deal ahead of time. Solicitor Stewart O’Connell told WAtoday both his client and the law firm were "happy" with the settlement, which would remain confidential.

Supreme Court of WA Chief Justice Peter Quinlan entered his judgment in open court in favour of Mr. Terrance’s defamation claim against Channel Seven, a statement from the solicitors read. "The judgment was entered pursuant to consent orders agreed to by the parties," it read.
"The judge noted that the proceedings had otherwise settled on confidential terms. The judge congratulated the parties on reaching a resolution."
Mr. Flowers’ lawyers requested the privacy of Mr Flowers and his family be respected.

Another example of where some publicly available crime facts are publicly reported via BigFooty Crime threads, before the media reports them.

Hmmm, maybe he wasn't just a simple man who liked collecting dolls?

The self-confessed kidnapper of Carnarvon girl Cleo Smith will appear in court next month on charges related to the possession of child exploitation material.

Terence Darrell Kelly has been charged with 10 counts of possessing child exploitation material, but details of the alleged offending have yet to be revealed.

The allegations are in no way connected to the abduction of Cleo, whom Kelly admitted snatching from her parents’ tent during a family camping trip at the Blowholes last October.
...
He will appear in court on the new allegations on May 13, the same day he is expected to be given a sentence date for the child abduction charge.

It will be on that date that details of Kelly’s offending will be revealed.

What bs. I guess technically it probably wasnt picks of Cleo. But of course its connected. He didnt hold her for 17 days to have tea parties and play with dolls.

I think we can all guess what the undisclosed charge(s) are.

She was unhurt, so what do you mean? There’s been no suggestion she was molested, not even the smallest teensiest hint.

Did they specifically say “child porn”? What else could child exploitation mean? Genuine question.

Child exploitation material (CEM) is sexually abusive images of children that are typically disseminated via the internet. It's classified with child pornography in WA.

That's the technical term for it, however I know in Australia we have some strict rules on it, for example cartoon porn involving children is illegal here (there was once an infamous case of a bloke in Queensland years ago who was charged with CEM posession because he was found with Simpsons porn on his computer). Actually considering how much anime s**t was on his FB page its possible he had anime porn or the like on his PC involving characters that look underage.

We don’t know how many pics he had. Most offenders of this type seem to get busted with thousands of images. It’s possible that he had hundreds of thousands of pornographic material and only a handful were offensive.
