SA Police stationed outside District Court over concerns for safety of HIV-positive paedophile John Thomas McPake

Police officers were stationed outside the District Court this morning following the death of a youth abused by an HIV-positive paedophile.
The Advertiser has learnt one of the young victims of John Thomas McPake has taken his own life - and the paedophile's lawyers fear the boy's father will seek retribution.
John Thomas McPake, 56, of Woodville Park, was due to face court today for submissions on the setting of a limiting term.
McPake was found unfit to stand trial on two counts of endangering life and one count each of committing and procuring an act of gross indecency.
The offences were allegedly committed between April 30 and May 23, 2011.
McPake will be subject to a limiting term - a period under mental health supervision equal to the jail term a healthy person would receive.
He caused controversy when, last year, he asked his bail be varied so he could move to NSW.
His desire to live with his sister and relatives - including three children under the age of five - prompted NSW Premier Barry O'Farrell to speak out.
"We don't want this bloke in NSW and we'll do everything we can to stop him coming here,'' he said.
Defence lawyers subsequently abandoned the application.
Today, two uniformed police officers were stationed outside the District Court for McPake's hearing.
Two sheriff's officers were posted inside the court, as were two plainclothes police officers.
In court, prosecutors asked determination of McPake's limiting term be adjourned until September.
They said three psychologists had recommended McPake be under 24-hour supervision, but that care had yet to be arranged.
They asked McPake be remanded on continuing bail, with a new condition added that he was not to leave his home unless in the care of a supervising adult.
Heather Stokes, for McPake, did not oppose that condition and asked her client's sister, Joan, be listed as a supervising adult.
She also asked her client's address be suppressed from publication.
"Given there is extra police presence here today, it would be wiser and safer if the address not be published," she said.
Acting Chief Judge Geoffrey Muecke did not make the suppression order.
He remanded McPake on the new bail conditions to face court again in September.
McPake and his sister left court under the watch of police and caught a taxi without incident.

Accused child molester John Thomas McPake decides to stay in South Australia

Allegedly paedophile John Thomas McPake wanted to move from Adelaide to NSW, only to learn he was not welcome.
When McPake asked last week for his bail to be varied so he could live with his sister and three children under five, NSW Premier Barry O'Farrell vowed to prevent the move.
"We don't want this bloke in NSW and we'll do everything we can to stop him coming here," Mr O'Farrell said.
"This bloke's accused of the most serious crimes and, frankly, he is not welcome in NSW."
Yesterday McPake's lawyer, David Stokes, told The Advertiser his client had abandoned his application.
"Prosecutors wanted some of the matters checked out," he said. "Although we didn't think there was a problem, it was just getting too difficult.
"There was too much unnecessary publicity, so we decided to leave it be."
McPake, 55, of Woodville Park, has yet to plead to two counts of endangering life, two counts of unlawful sexual intercourse, and one count each of committing and procuring an act of gross indecency.
He is jointly charged with Daniel Mark Jorgensen, 42, of Ottoway, who is yet to plead to nine counts of unlawful sexual intercourse, one count of indecent assault and one count of committing an act of gross indecency. Other charges include two counts of aiding, abetting or counselling an act of unlawful sexual intercourse.
Court documents allege the offences occurred between April 30 and May 23, 2011.
Prosecutors will allege McPake was HIV positive at the time. Last week, he asked the District Court to vary his bail so he could move interstate and live with his sister, pending trial.
NSW Police Minister Michael Gallacher asked his South Australian counterpart, Jennifer Rankine, to reject bail changes.

Alleged HIV-positive pedophile wants to live with kids

An Allegedly HIV-positive pedophile wants his bail altered so he can live interstate with three children under the age of five.
Lawyers for John Thomas McPake have told the District Court the adults in that NSW house - the children's parents and grandmother - "have no concerns" about him staying there.
McPake, 55, of Woodville Park, has yet to plead to two counts of endangering life, two counts of unlawful sexual intercourse, and one count each of committing and procuring an act of gross indecency.
He is jointly charged with Daniel Mark Jorgensen, 42, of Ottoway, who is yet to plead to nine counts of unlawful sexual intercourse, one count of indecent assault and one count of committing an act of gross indecency.
Other charges include two counts of aiding, abetting or counselling an act of unlawful sexual intercourse.
Court documents allege the offences occurred between April 30 and May 23, 2011. Prosecutors will further allege McPake was HIV positive at the time.
Today David Stokes, for McPake, said his client wanted to move to NSW and live with his twin sister.
"The proposed residence has children in it, small children," he said.
"The sister has her son and daughter-in-law living with her, and they have one young child and another on the way.
"She is also looking after two of her grandchildren while their parents are travelling... all the children are under five."
He said prosecutors had already flagged their objection to the request.
"It's understandable they have some concerns," he said.
"The fact there would be young children living in the house with McPake, however, is not a concern to the adults living there."
Mr Stokes asked the court arrange a video link with Sydney so McPake's sister could give evidence about the proposed arrangement.
Judge Mark Griffin agreed, remanding McPake on his existing bail conditions until next week.
"It might be advisable if some inquiries are made as to alternative living arrangements, with persons who don't have children, in the meantime," he said.

Lawyers argue alleged sex offender 'not fit for trial'

The mental health of an alleged HIV-positive paedophile will be checked before he answers the charges, a court has heard.
John Thomas McPake, 55, of Woodville Park, appeared in the District Court yesterday.
He is yet to plead to two counts of endangering life, two counts of unlawful sexual intercourse, and one count each of committing and procuring an act of gross indecency.
McPake is jointly charged with Daniel Mark Jorgensen, 42, of Ottoway, who is yet to plead to nine counts of unlawful sexual intercourse, one count of indecent assault and one count of committing an act of gross indecency.
Other charges include two counts of aiding, abetting or counselling an act of unlawful sex- ual intercourse.
Court documents allege the offences occurred between April 30 and May 23, 2011. Prosecutors will further allege McPake was HIV positive at the time.
Yesterday David Stokes, for McPake, asked his client's arraignment be put off for six weeks. Mr Stokes said he wanted McPake psychologically assessed before he entered pleas.
Bronwyn Waldren, for Jorgensen, said two psychologists had deemed her client unfit to stand trial. Prosecutors said the psychologists should be asked to view a video of Jorgensen's police interview and offer further opinions.
Judge Paul Cuthbertson ordered the experts provide additional reports and remanded Jorgensen in custody until next month. He continued McPake's bail, pending psychologi- cal assessment.
