On October 3rd, 2014, Vernon Quaintance was sentenced to two years and four months in prision for targeting young boys and asking them to expose themselves under the pretense of inspecting whether or not they were circumcised. Judge Anthony Leonard QC said Quaintance used his interest in the surgical procedure to look at young boys. The judge took into consideration that this offending did not carried over into Quaintance’s later years, and his less than perfect health, to offer some allowance.
Quaintaince recently confessed to a string of offences against five young boys as young as 10 in the 1960s and 1970s. Thousands of images were found in his computer, many showing bloody and ritualistic circumcisions in the Brazilian rainforest.
The Croydon Advertiser referred to Quaintance as “circumcision fetishist”, paedophile, pervert, deviant, and stated that the Gilgal Society was just a facade for the ‘distribution of images of young boys’ for erotic and paedophilic use.
While the Gilgal Society’s website has been removed, its content remains public as the Circumcision Helpdesk, which is openly registered to Quaintaince.
