-Secrets...

0:00:070:00:10

-..lies...

0:00:100:00:12

-..deceit...

0:00:120:00:14

-..violence.

0:00:150:00:17

-Every criminal case poses a new

-challenge for the detective.

0:00:170:00:21

-To discover the truth,

-patience and curiosity is required.

0:00:240:00:29

-Tonight, I travel to America

-on the trail of the Welshman...

0:00:390:00:43

-..accused of raping

-a ten-year-old girl.

0:00:440:00:47

-I meet the man who translated

-his defence into Welsh.

0:00:470:00:51

-Seeing someone so young in handcuffs

-was quite disturbing.

0:00:510:00:55

-I hear astounding evidence from

-the detectives who questioned him.

0:00:560:01:00

-This is an absolute, serious,

-severe crime.

0:01:010:01:04

-I visit the prison which will be

-his home for the next fifty years.

0:01:050:01:10

-He actually got what he deserved.

0:01:100:01:12

-Seattle.

0:01:330:01:34

-The largest city

-in the north west of the USA.

0:01:340:01:37

-A city famous for its harbour,

-cityscape and cafes.

0:01:420:01:45

-But, in April 2015, when a Welshman

-flew 5,000 miles to get here...

0:01:480:01:52

-..he didn't come to visit the city.

0:01:520:01:56

-Today, I'm travelling 300 miles

-south of Seattle...

0:02:140:02:17

-..to the state of Oregon.

0:02:180:02:20

-There, in the town of Eugene,

-in April 2015...

0:02:220:02:26

-..the police received

-an emergency call.

0:02:260:02:29

-A little girl was missing.

0:02:300:02:32

-Even though the police found her

-walking the streets...

0:02:330:02:36

-..her grandmother suspected

-that she had been raped.

0:02:360:02:40

-I responded to a call from a local

-hospital about a sexual assault.

0:02:460:02:50

-The caller was the victim's

-grandmother reporting the incident.

0:02:510:02:55

-According to the girl,

-she had been with a Welshman...

0:03:020:03:05

-..after starting a relationship

-with him on the Internet.

0:03:060:03:10

-She was only ten years old.

0:03:110:03:13

-On the grandmother's phone...

0:03:180:03:20

-..police found evidence of the

-relationship and the man's profile.

0:03:200:03:25

-It was a profile picture of a male

-with a first name of Garrett.

0:03:250:03:29

-There was a last name of Williamson.

0:03:300:03:33

-There was a text communication

-on the phone.

0:03:350:03:37

-Also on the phone, were photos

-and videos of a sexual nature.

0:03:400:03:44

-With the age of the victim,

-and the circumstances around it...

0:03:460:03:51

-..it was very shocking.

0:03:510:03:53

-An investigation was launched.

0:03:580:04:00

-Eugene detectives began to analyse

-the phone evidence.

0:04:000:04:04

-They met when he contacted her

-on a chat site called ooVoo.

0:04:060:04:12

-She accepted the request.

0:04:120:04:14

-She realized

-in fairly short order...

0:04:140:04:19

-..that the person

-she thought she was talking to...

0:04:190:04:22

-..wasn't the real person.

0:04:230:04:25

-By that I mean, he pretended

-to be two girls.

0:04:250:04:29

-He played a video to convince her...

0:04:310:04:33

-..that she was chatting to two girls

-aged nine and fourteen...

0:04:330:04:37

-..before telling her that he was

-a man from North Wales...

0:04:370:04:41

-..called Garrett Williamson.

0:04:410:04:43

-Later, the police discovered

-that his real name was Gareth Hall.

0:04:430:04:48

-Gareth is a perfect example of

-someone trawling the Internet...

0:04:500:04:54

-..looking for someone to groom.

0:04:550:04:57

-He picked on a vulnerable person.

0:04:570:05:00

-This girl was looking for love -

-what she thought true love was.

0:05:000:05:03

-He preyed upon that.

0:05:040:05:06

-The girl had had a difficult life.

0:05:070:05:09

-Her father was in prison

-and her mother was on drugs.

0:05:100:05:13

-She was in the care

-of her grandmother.

0:05:130:05:15

-She had been stealing her phone...

0:05:160:05:18

-..to communicate with the Welshman

-for over a month.

0:05:180:05:21

-This is a communication

-from the victim to Gareth.

0:05:210:05:25

-She texts him...

0:05:250:05:27

-.."I have died every day

-waiting for you, darling.

0:05:270:05:30

-"I have loved you

-for a thousand years...

0:05:300:05:32

-"..and I'll love you

-for a thousand more."

0:05:320:05:35

-She's ten years old and it shows

-the lack of maturity she exhibits.

0:05:350:05:41

-Her inability to discern fantasy

-from reality.

0:05:410:05:45

-He said things like "I love you

-and I want to be with you."

0:05:450:05:49

-"We're going to have sex

-and it will be great and magical."

0:05:490:05:53

-They talked about moving away

-to Australia.

0:05:530:05:56

-It was, on his part...

0:05:560:05:57

-..a deception from beginning to end

-for one purpose.

0:05:570:06:01

-Gareth Hall told her that he would

-travel over there to see her.

0:06:130:06:17

-After flying from London to Paris,

-and then to Seattle...

0:06:210:06:24

-..he texted the girl to say

-that he had landed.

0:06:250:06:28

-It's likely that Gareth Hall

-drove to Eugene during the night...

0:06:350:06:39

-..and went to the grandmother's

-house where the girl lived.

0:06:390:06:43

-He knocked on her bedroom window

-and she came out to see him.

0:06:440:06:47

-She went with him

-to a nearby park...

0:06:480:06:50

-..where he raped her

-in the back of the car.

0:06:500:06:53

-After being raped,

-she kept it all a secret.

0:06:590:07:02

-But in her evidence to police...

0:07:040:07:06

-..she said she'd worn

-her princess frock...

0:07:070:07:09

-..and left the house

-barefoot to meet him.

0:07:100:07:13

-The things that happened

-were very horrific.

0:07:130:07:16

-For her, there was some fantasy

-of what she wanted life to be like.

0:07:160:07:22

-She's ten and wanted to be

-a grown-up.

0:07:220:07:25

-The following night, he took the

-girl out to a restaurant...

0:07:290:07:32

-..on the outskirts of Eugene...

0:07:330:07:35

-..before taking her to a room

-in the Budget Lodge...

0:07:380:07:40

-..where the girl said

-they had a bubble bath.

0:07:410:07:43

-Gareth Hall had a GoPro camera.

0:07:430:07:45

-He had been to a shop

-to buy sex goods for her...

0:07:460:07:49

-..including strawberry lubricant

-and a vibrator.

0:07:490:07:52

-It was here that he raped her again.

0:07:520:07:56

-The next day, Gareth Hall moved

-to another hotel.

0:08:030:08:06

-This is it,

-where the big blue sign is here.

0:08:060:08:11

-He lured the girl there

-and raped her again.

0:08:130:08:15

-But he left some evidence behind.

0:08:170:08:20

-Did you have any important

-information...

0:08:210:08:24

-..from this location

-that helped you with the case?

0:08:240:08:27

-From the registration information...

0:08:270:08:30

-..we were able to obtain Mr Hall's

-rental car information...

0:08:300:08:34

-..and verify it

-with the rental company.

0:08:340:08:36

-We then found the vehicle and got

-the DNA evidence of the sex acts.

0:08:360:08:41

-This is the registration he made...

0:08:420:08:44

-..from the hotels he was staying at.

0:08:450:08:48

-It shows his name on this card.

0:08:490:08:51

-He signed it and included

-his passport number...

0:08:520:08:54

-..which was one digit off

-from the actual one.

0:08:550:08:59

-Possibly to conceal his identity.

0:08:590:09:02

-This is how police confirmed

-that his name was Gareth Hall...

0:09:040:09:08

-..and that he was from Wales.

0:09:080:09:10

-But, by then, the 22-year-old man

-had left America...

0:09:110:09:15

-..and was back home in the village

-of Talysarn, near Caernarfon.

0:09:160:09:20

-He was already known to North Wales

-Police who had arrested him...

0:09:230:09:27

-..on suspicion of having indecent

-images of children on his computer.

0:09:270:09:32

-He'd been released on bail

-while police investigated...

0:09:320:09:37

-..and suspended from his job

-at Arfon Leisure and Tennis Centre.

0:09:370:09:42

-Detectives in Wales

-were still investigating...

0:09:450:09:48

-..when Gareth Hall

-travelled to America.

0:09:480:09:51

-But the FBI and detectives in Eugene

-discovered that he had booked...

0:10:120:10:16

-..to fly to America once again, just

-a fortnight after arriving home.

0:10:160:10:21

-They knew that he would be flying...

0:10:210:10:24

-..from Manchester to Chicago

-on May 2.

0:10:240:10:27

-When we found out

-that he was coming back to the US...

0:10:320:10:35

-..I immediately assumed

-that he was coming back...

0:10:350:10:39

-..to do the same thing

-to someone else.

0:10:390:10:41

-We found out that his final

-destination was not Chicago.

0:10:420:10:45

-He was not going back to Oregon,

-but heading to the middle of the US.

0:10:450:10:49

-The detectives travelled to Chicago

-in the hope of catching him...

0:10:500:10:54

-..before he evaded their grasp

-once again.

0:10:540:10:57

-We got to Chicago and we found out

-that he was on the flight...

0:10:590:11:03

-..and that he would be landing

-in approximately six hours.

0:11:030:11:07

-We were absolutely ecstatic

-at that point.

0:11:070:11:10

-Gareth Hall was on his way back to

-America, but where was he going?

0:11:130:11:17

-And what did he intend to do?

0:11:170:11:19

-He didn't know that the detectives

-were waiting for him.

0:11:330:11:35

-I'm in America, following the

-footsteps of the Welshman...

0:11:420:11:46

-..who came to Oregon

-to rape a ten-year-old girl.

0:11:460:11:49

-A fortnight after Gareth Hall

-returned to Wales...

0:11:490:11:53

-..he was on his way back to America.

0:11:530:11:56

-But detectives were waiting for him

-at Chicago airport.

0:11:580:12:02

-He was arrested while on board

-the aeroplane.

0:12:020:12:05

-When questioned

-he admitted having sex...

0:12:080:12:11

-..with the ten-year-old girl

-from Eugene.

0:12:110:12:14

-But he denied knowing her age.

0:12:140:12:16

-The age of sexual consent

-in Oregon is 18.

0:12:160:12:21

-He said that, at the time that they

-chatted, she purported to be 17.

0:12:210:12:26

-But said that she would be 18 soon

-as it was going to be her birthday.

0:12:260:12:30

-And that then they would be able to

-engage in sex once she turned 18.

0:12:310:12:35

-She disclosed to us that she

-initially told him...

0:12:350:12:39

-..that she was 14 years old,

-but later told him that she was 10.

0:12:390:12:43

-I've had a lot of interaction

-with this girl.

0:12:430:12:45

-There is nothing about

-her mannerisms...

0:12:460:12:48

-..that would indicate

-she's any older.

0:12:480:12:51

-She looked like a little kid.

0:12:510:12:53

-Gareth asks the victim...

0:12:580:13:00

-.."so what you thought about

-the time we spent together?"

0:13:000:13:05

-And she responded, "I thought about

-pink, fluffy, unicorns."

0:13:050:13:10

-Continuing that, "the unicorns

-were dancing on rainbows."

0:13:120:13:16

-When detectives asked him why

-he had returned to the country...

0:13:230:13:27

-..he asked for a solicitor.

0:13:280:13:30

-Gareth's return to the US lacked

-a lot of explanation and logic.

0:13:320:13:38

-He said that he was coming back

-to the United States...

0:13:380:13:41

-..to go to Kansas to find a place

-where he could shoot some guns...

0:13:410:13:45

-..and just look around.

0:13:460:13:48

-The detectives knew that he'd been

-to America before...

0:13:480:13:51

-..to work at a camp

-for disabled children.

0:13:510:13:54

-They feared that this was not

-the first time he'd offended.

0:13:550:13:58

-I believe the possibility of Gareth

-having other victims...

0:13:580:14:02

-..or potential victims

-in the US is very real.

0:14:020:14:06

-The FBI were worried that he'd been

-in contact with more children.

0:14:080:14:13

-They made a nationwide appeal asking

-for any information about him...

0:14:130:14:18

-..and his movements

-during his time here.

0:14:180:14:21

-Gareth Hall was transported

-back to Eugene...

0:14:290:14:32

-..and held at the Lane County Adult

-Corrections Division.

0:14:330:14:36

-The bail was set at 1.5 million.

0:14:360:14:41

-He asked for a Welsh translator

-to assist him in court.

0:14:420:14:46

-The New York Welsh Government office

-searched for a translator...

0:14:470:14:51

-..on behalf of the court

-in Lane County...

0:14:510:14:55

-..and this Welshman received a call

-asking him to do the work.

0:14:550:14:59

-Why did Gareth Hall feel that

-he needed a translator in court?

0:15:010:15:05

-Because Welsh is his first language.

0:15:060:15:08

-In a case like this,

-it being so serious, naturally...

0:15:080:15:12

-..he didn't want to address

-the court in his second language.

0:15:120:15:16

-In court, the translator met

-the defendant for the first time.

0:15:190:15:25

-One of the first things that struck

-me when I walked in...

0:15:280:15:32

-..was that this was real life,

-not Perry Mason.

0:15:320:15:35

-We've all seen American court cases

-on television.

0:15:350:15:40

-This particular case

-was extremely serious.

0:15:400:15:44

-I remember that he was wearing

-orange prison clothes.

0:15:450:15:50

-His feet were in chains

-and he was handcuffed.

0:15:530:15:55

-Seeing someone so young in handcuffs

-was quite disturbing.

0:15:550:16:01

-The judge came in and sat

-right in front of Gareth...

0:16:040:16:08

-..and outlined what would happen

-if he pleaded guilty or innocent...

0:16:080:16:14

-..and whether his case would be

-tried by jury or without a jury.

0:16:140:16:18

-Gareth Hall faced a series

-of charges.

0:16:200:16:22

-Four charges of raping

-an under-age girl.

0:16:220:16:26

-Two charges of sodomy.

-One charge of kidnapping.

0:16:260:16:29

-And one charge of sexual grooming

-of a child online.

0:16:300:16:35

-After some discussion...

0:16:360:16:38

-..the prosecution dropped

-the kidnapping charge.

0:16:390:16:42

-It was time for Gareth Hall

-to enter his plea.

0:16:420:16:45

-He pleaded guilty

-to all other charges.

0:16:460:16:48

-In this court document, it says...

0:16:480:16:50

-.."I enter the guilty pleas because

-I am guilty of these crimes.

0:16:510:16:55

-"I offer my plea of guilty freely

-and voluntarily, of my own accord.

0:16:550:17:01

-"With a full understanding

-of the charge...

0:17:010:17:04

-"..and of what I am giving up

-by this plea."

0:17:040:17:06

-By pleading guilty,

-Gareth Hall avoided a full trial.

0:17:100:17:13

-But, on St David's Day, 2016, he was

-back in court to be sentenced.

0:17:170:17:23

-The room was full because the press

-was there as well as the police.

0:17:270:17:32

-The judge outlined the background of

-the case and the sentencing options.

0:17:320:17:37

-The least he could expect

-was about 25 years...

0:17:390:17:42

-..and the most was 50 years.

0:17:420:17:44

-After the lawyers' statements...

0:17:460:17:48

-..the judge allowed the family

-to address the court.

0:17:480:17:52

-The girl's grandmother voiced

-her feelings.

0:17:530:17:56

-She called Gareth Hall

-a terrorist...

0:17:560:17:58

-..and said that her granddaughter

-had fallen into a trap...

0:17:590:18:02

-..and that what he did had

-completely destroyed her family.

0:18:020:18:06

-Then, Gareth Hall was allowed

-to speak.

0:18:070:18:09

-He said in Welsh, that he was sorry

-about everything that had happened.

0:18:130:18:18

-And that he hadn't realized

-that the girl was so young.

0:18:180:18:21

-That's all he said.

-That's all I translated.

0:18:210:18:25

-But Judge Jay McAlpin didn't agree.

0:18:260:18:29

-After seeing photos

-of the ten-year-old girl...

0:18:290:18:32

-..he told the defence

-that, in his opinion...

0:18:320:18:35

-..this wasn't an innocent mistake.

0:18:350:18:38

-He pronounced the sentence.

-It was the maximum.

0:18:420:18:45

-Fifty years without parole.

0:18:450:18:48

-He was certainly shocked.

-It was a blow.

0:18:510:18:55

-I didn't have to translate

-anything for him.

0:18:550:18:58

-But he didn't understand

-why he'd been given the maximum.

0:18:580:19:01

-There was an argument made

-that a sentence of fifty years...

0:19:020:19:05

-..can be more than murder.

0:19:050:19:07

-In some cases, that's true.

0:19:070:19:09

-In this case, given what he did

-to a ten-year-old repeatedly...

0:19:100:19:15

-..and the laws that we have here...

0:19:150:19:18

-..he actually got what he deserved.

0:19:190:19:22

-Five hours drive to the east of

-Eugene, is the town of Pendleton.

0:19:350:19:39

-This is where the Eastern Oregon

-Correctional Institution is located.

0:19:410:19:46

-Gareth Hall is now one of 1,700

-prisoners locked up here.

0:19:480:19:53

-He is on a housing unit...

0:19:530:19:56

-..and he shares his cell

-with one other inmate.

0:19:560:19:59

-Prisoners have to work every day.

0:20:020:20:05

-Some in the kitchens

-and laundries...

0:20:050:20:08

-..and others in a factory

-that produces their own denim.

0:20:080:20:11

-The prison blues.

0:20:120:20:13

-Although they have the right

-to family visits...

0:20:160:20:19

-..opportunities to communicate

-with the outside world are few.

0:20:190:20:23

-There are stringent safety rules.

0:20:260:20:28

-The prison won't allow us

-to film inside.

0:20:330:20:36

-They are concerned about security.

0:20:360:20:38

-They say that allowing one of their

-inmates to be interviewed...

0:20:380:20:42

-..would attract

-unwanted attention...

0:20:430:20:45

-..and this could interfere with

-Gareth Hall's rehabilitation.

0:20:450:20:49

-But, although our request to talk

-to him was refused...

0:20:530:20:56

-..Gareth Hall responded to us

-by letter.

0:20:570:20:59

-He said that at the moment,

-he isn't ready to tell his story...

0:21:040:21:08

-..because of his restricted

-circumstances.

0:21:090:21:13

-He said he would contact us

-in the near future.

0:21:130:21:16

-He signs himself,

-Yours sincerely, Gareth.

0:21:160:21:19

-Catching sex offenders who operate

-online is a huge challenge...

0:21:350:21:39

-..for police forces

-across the world.

0:21:390:21:41

-Protecting children and young people

-from those dangers...

0:21:410:21:45

-..is more difficult than ever.

0:21:450:21:47

-Gareth Hall would certainly have had

-a much lighter sentence in Britain.

0:21:480:21:52

-But here, in Oregon,

-the message is clear.

0:21:520:21:55

-This case should act as a warning

-to any child sex offender.

0:21:550:22:00

-This is not something

-that is taken lightly.

0:22:060:22:09

-This is an absolute, serious,

-severe crime.

0:22:100:22:13

-Gareth was held accountable.

0:22:150:22:17

-Anybody else who attempts

-similar actions...

0:22:170:22:20

-..would be held accountable

-in the same manner.

0:22:200:22:23

-North Wales Police are still

-examining Gareth Hall's computers.

0:22:240:22:29

-The FBI are still appealing

-for information...

0:22:290:22:32

-..about any further offences

-in America.

0:22:320:22:36

-Knowing that the person's

-no longer out there...

0:22:390:22:43

-..makes me feel that we did our job.

0:22:430:22:45

-Gareth Hall may well be

-in his seventies...

0:22:470:22:51

-..before he is allowed

-to leave prison.

0:22:510:22:53

-But it's a life sentence for the

-little girl he raped and her family.

0:22:540:22:58

-They have to live with what he did.

0:22:580:23:01

-The victim is going to have to

-figure out how to deal with this...

0:23:040:23:08

-..throughout her life,

-throughout that fairy tale...

0:23:080:23:11

-..of getting married

-and falling in love.

0:23:110:23:14

-This will always haunt her

-and will always be her demon.

0:23:140:23:17

-Those type of predators don't ever

-belong back on our streets...

0:23:210:23:25

-..in America, in Wales, anywhere,

-because children are sacred.
