Serial sex offender handed suspended sentence after being nabbed near Winchelsea primary school
A convicted sex offender has been handed a two-month suspended jail term after he pleaded guilty
to twice loitering while drunk near a Winchelsea primary school.
The Geelong Magistrates’ Court heard yesterday Neil Hogg, who is on the sex offenders register for
life, was spotted sitting opposite the primary school drinking a can of beer while children passed
close by to exit the grounds on April 30.
Days later the 54-year-old was again seen in the area, this time talking to two five-year-old girls.
The police prosecutor told the court Hogg admitted to police his actions were “pretty dangerous”.
The court heard Hogg’s history of offending was well known and that a large number of people in
Winchelsea are now fearful of their children’s safety.
Hogg’s lawyer Tim Fitzgerald said his client suffered from extremely low cognitive function and
there were grave fears for his safety if jailed.
“It’s readily apparent that alcohol plays a significant contributing role. It’s a blight that’s
been cast on Mr Hogg’s life,” he said.
Mr Fitzgerald said his client had previously been unable to complete any community service work
handed down to him as part of his community corrections order due to two assaults in four months,
one that left him with life-threatening head injuries.
In January, Hogg was flown to a Melbourne hospital after allegedly being assaulted with a shovel
in Geelong West.
Mr Fitzgerald said, while Hogg was recovering in hospital, his house was set alight.
Magistrate Ron Saines said a suspended jail term was crucial in preventing repeat offending, but
told Hogg he would head straight to prison if he failed to comply or follow treatments.
“This is a very serious matter, being drunk outside a school in Winchelsea after being sentenced
many times for loitering and offences that make many people concerned about their
children’s safety,” Mr Saines said.
“Were it not for the difficulties you have in understanding, with your disabilities,
you’d go to jail for a long time.
“In circumstances where a guilty plea has been given at an early date, a jail sentence
should not be imposed unless there is no other option.”
Mr Saines also imposed a revised two-year community corrections order that will see Hogg
required to do 100 hours of work during 12 months, and undergo treatment for alcohol abuse.

Could the scales at last be lifting from the eyes of our judges
and magistrates? Could our campaign for more honesty and openness,
and the need for a national public register of convicted sex offenders, be starting to bite?
There’s a long way to go, but in Geelong Magistrate’s Court this week, the almost
obligatory veil of secrecy was lifted. At least a little.
A recidivist sex offender I have featured several times in recent weeks was back
in court and his lawyer tried to get a blanket suppression order on his name and photo.
The convicted paedophile, who is already on the offenders’ register, is Neil Hogg. His
lawyer asked the court to issue a suppression order to prevent the media from identifying
Hogg in any way because of concerns for his safety. There was opposition to that request
from the Geelong Advertiser which deserves applause for its campaigning and
as a strong supporter of causes like Jail 2 Justice.
Magistrate Ann McGarvie refused the suppression order application preventing identification of Hogg,
but granted a partial order banning publication of his address. That’s a nod to the vigilante argument.
In the United States, under Megan’s Law, where addresses are on phone apps along with names and photos,
there are not revenge attacks. And if there were – if somebody’s house was vandalised -- then the
culprit would be, and should be, charged.
Hogg, 54, appeared in court on two charges of being a known sex offender found loitering near
schools at Winchelsea. Last time he was in court, and granted bail, his lawyer said Hogg had an
intellectual disability and issues with alcohol’ and was remorseful. (This was the same ‘remorseful’
predator who told a disability support person at Australian Disability Enterprise before an earlier
court appearance: ‘Because I have a disability they'll go soft on me’.)
Hogg was placed on the sex offenders' register for eight years in 2009, after groping a
14-year-old girl as she waited at a bus stop near a secondary school. Police have now
demanded he remain on the register for life. Should be automatic. He has also pleaded
guilty to indecent assault, an indecent act in the presence of a child under 16 years,
loitering as a convicted sex offender and two counts of stalking.
I am getting proof almost daily that the sex offenders’ register in its current
form is not working. (That is apart from the 90 files I have in a current folder
called Cries for Help) Emails like this edited one: I have a moral example
that in my experience highlights why your crusade for a national sex offender
register is necessary and the current system is failing. There doesn’t seem to
be monitoring that is sufficient where a person can ignore these restrictions
so blatantly. This person is either being defiant or deliberately ignoring these
restrictions explained to them by the police. I have told counsellors, police,
family members and other parties involved. Nothing is being done’.
Sex offender Neil Hogg in court on fresh loitering charges
Registered sex offender Neil Hogg has appeared in Geelong court on fresh charges.
Hogg, 54, formerly of Winchelsea, is charged with two counts of being a known sex offender found loitering near schools.
The offending is alleged to have occurred earlier this week when Hogg was found drinking alcohol in proximity to Winchelsea schools.
He was immediately arrested by police, charged and lodged in Geelong cells.
Hogg fronted Geelong Magistrates’ Court yesterday where he was granted bail on his own recognisance to reappear on May 27.
Magistrate Ron Saines imposed a number of bail conditions, one being that Hogg not re-attend the township of Winchelsea.
I lay in bed this morning thinking about the upcoming Jail 2 Justice walk but distracted by an email
I received overnight and wondering if I risked jail again (and possible financial ruin) by naming
another serial sex offender terrorising a Victorian country town.
His name is Neil Hogg. The town is Winchelsea. And for once (with no public sex offender register) his
name has not been suppressed. Nor has his photograph.
This one is a shocker. He is already on the sex offenders’ register. The 53-year-old has been convicted
of sex crimes involving children twice in the past four years.
This is the email I received from a worried father of a five-year-old girl:
‘I am a resident in a town called Winchelsea, 36kms west of Geelong. Most people would remember our town
by the “3 boys in the dam” story.
We now have a huge problem of a convicted paedophile being moved to our once sleepy town and we cannot
seem to get anything done about it.
This chap was first moved to a house that was a street away from a Community Hub Football/Netball ground.
When the club first found out about his presence they went to the police asking for information to what to do. They were promised that he wouldn’t go there as he had given his word!!!What do we have to do
to have this bloke jailed?
On Thursday nights the Football/Netball ground is flooded with young kids doing Auskick and Netta for the
girls which my 5-year-old daughter does.
He was found later hiding in amongst the trees of the grounds and promptly arrested.
So much for the promise!
Obviously released again and not locked up.
A couple of weeks later, he was found sitting opposite the Winchelsea School on a park bench watching the
kids leave school. Promptly arrested again after someone rang the police.
Now last week he was at the bloody school talking to the young Prep kids trying to get them to go with
him!!!! What do we have to do to have this bloke jailed? He surely has broken the laws that he has to conform to.
I have attached a Facebook link where there are over 100 comments about this happening last Friday.
After reading this thread, we then find out that he travels to another small town and reportedly gets
the taxi driver in Winchelsea to buy his grog for him as he is not allowed to buy it himself.
This just gets worse and worse.
We need to have this guy locked up before he does something horrible!!’
Any doubt now that we need a national public register of convicted sex offenders?
Some good and bad news. The good news: Hogg has been arrested and charged with breaches of his
registered sex offender conditions. He appeared in court yesterday on two counts of being a known
sex offender loitering near a school. The bad news: He has been granted bail to appear again on May 27.
One of his bail conditions is that he stay away from Winchelsea.
Police seek life listing for sex offender
Police want a Geelong man to be registered as a sex offender for life after his second indecent sexual act
with a child in four years.
Neil Hogg, 53, yesterday pleaded guilty to indecent assault, an indecent act in the presence of a child under
16 years, loitering as a convicted sex offender and two counts of stalking.
The Norlane man was on a V/Line train on December 12 last year when he grabbed a 13-year-old girl on the shoulder
and held her while he touched himself.
Hogg smiled at the girl's friend, who was sitting in the opposite seat, as she witnessed the assault.
The same girls were harassed twice more by Hogg on the Geelong line train; he tried to talk to them in January and
approached the teen when she was sitting in the luggage rack in February.
Hogg was placed on the sex offenders' register for eight years in 2009, after groping a 14-year-old girl as she
waited at a bus stop near a secondary school.
Police prosecutor Senior Constable Jacki Davis yesterday called for Hogg to remain on the register for life.
Defence counsel Shane Balkin said Hogg, who has an intellectual disability and issues with alcohol, was remorseful
and had broken down at the end of a police interview.
"Plainly this was a very unpleasant experience from the children's point of view," he said.
"It is not forthcoming why something has happened on these days."
Magistrate Ann McGarvie adjourned the hearing until August 2.
Hogg's bail conditions include not using the V/Line train between North Shore and Geelong.

Teen sex crimes fear in Geelong
Sexual offences against teenagers are soaring and Geelong police fear there are victims suffering in silence.
Figures released yesterday revealed Victorian police were probing 47 serious sexual-assault crimes statewide between June
and September this year. The report said victims between 14 and 16 featured most prominently on the list and 28 of the cases involved female victims aged under 17.
A pilot police program trailed in Geelong this year dubbed the Sexual Offences and Child Abuse Investigation Team, involving specially trained
police, is expected to
be rolled out state-wide next year to deal with the influx of cases.
Sexual Crimes Squad Detective Inspector Glenn Davies said young women affected by alcohol were most vulnerable and was concerned about the trend
with schoolies and Christmas break-up parties approaching.
"Young people, particularly men, need to consider their own behaviour and the way they treat women," he said.
"Often these situations occur in group environments and young men need to take a strong, moral stance and speak out to their mates and put a stop
to their actions.
"A lot of offences are taking place in party-type situations, where often a large amount of alcohol has been consumed and where there is often
little to no adult supervision."
Recent Geelong cases involving sexual offences against teenagers include:
Neil Hogg pleaded guilty to groping a 14-year-old girl through her school dress while she waited at a Geelong bus stop.
He will be sentenced today;
will stand trial after pleading not guilty to 24 charges relating to sexual assault and rape
of a young girl while she was aged between six and 13;
Video footage was posted on the internet of two teenagers having sex inside a Geelong region school gym. The group of students
who witnessed and filmed the sex act were suspended;
Torquay's Andrew Drayton, 21, is charged with 13 counts of sexual penetration of girls aged under 16;
39, received a suspended jail sentence after he enticed a 14-year-old girl into his bedroom. The North Geelong
man put on a pornographic movie and then started to touch the victim, and
Western Heights teacher
30, was sentenced to a minimum of three years jail after pleading guilty to sexual
penetration of a 15-year-old student.
Geelong police Inspector Phil Swindells said there were many support agencies available in the city to help those who were
scared to report sex crimes to police.
"We encourage everyone to come forward and report sex offences that are being committed on themselves, or friends or family
members," Insp Swindells said.

Geelong schoolgirl groped at bus stop
A man groped a 14-year-old schoolgirl as she waited at a Geelong bus stop, a court heard yesterday.
On March 10 this year, Neil Hogg approached the victim, who was waiting at the bus stop with a friend, near a secondary school.
The prosecution told the court Hogg tried to talk to the girls but then started stroking the victim's dress and gripped her thigh through the material.
Hogg yesterday pleaded guilty in Geelong Magistrates' Court to one count of committing an indecent act with a child under 16.
The court heard the girl tried to walk away but then broke into a run when she thought he was following her.
The prosecution said the girl reached her house where she told her father about the incident.
Hogg was later seen catching a bus from the same stop, the court heard.
The court was told that on April 28, Hogg was charged and made full admissions to police.
"No, I shouldn't have done it," he told police.
Hogg said he was simply trying to flee the scene and was not following the victim home.
The defence acknowledged Hogg had an intellectual disability and previous problems with alcohol but that this was his first sex offence and that was a "worrying development".
As it was a class-two offence, Hogg was told he would be placed on the sex offenders register for eight years.
Magistrate Rosemary Carlin said that she wanted Hogg to enter a sex offenders program and adjourned sentencing until November 17 for a pre-sentence report and justice plan.
