Mine-shaft Rapist Fails in Discrimination Claim

A rapist who held his teenage victim captive in a disused mine shaft has failed in a discrimination claim over his treatment by police after arrest.
Appearing at the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal by videolink from Ararat prison, Anthony James Pitt, 52, said police tried to coerce him to plead guilty, and stirred up other prisoners against him at the holding cells in Ballarat.
Pitt is serving a 17-year jail sentence, with a 15-year minimum, after pleading guilty to two rape counts, and one of false imprisonment.
Police found him and the girl in the mineshaft after she was reported missing in November 1998.
In a hearing today before tribunal deputy president, Judge Marilyn Harbison, Pitt said one policeman caused other prisoners at the cells to give him a hard time by saying he had raped a girl.
He said the prisoners were also invited to spit in his food before it was served to him.
When he asked for a drink of water, another officer allegedly threw him a cup and told him to get the water from the toilet.
Pitt said the first policeman told him that he had "better plead guilty" so the officer did not have to give evidence.
"They knew that I was mentally ill and they made fun of it,'' he said.
He said he had a history of mental illness, which would have been known to police. He was also prescribed anti-depression drugs.
Judge Harbison said Pitt had to establish in his claim under the Equal Opportunity Act that the mistreatment occurred, that he had an impairment and that the two were connected.
She said in dismissing the claim that she would not make a finding about whether his evidence was true, but there was no material connecting the alleged conduct with his impairment.

Tunnel rapist says he's being abused in jail

A rapist who imprisoned a teenage sex slave in a disused mine shaft is suing Victoria Police for mistreatment.
Anthony James Pitt was jailed for 17 years in December 1999 for luring a Ballarat schoolgirl, 16, into an underground dungeon and repeatedly raping her over 19 hours in November 1998.
Pitt, now 51, appeared in the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal via video link yesterday, claiming police had discriminated against him during and after his arrest.
He alleged police told fellow prisoners at the Ballarat holding cells he raped teenagers, and asked them if they would like to spit in his food.
Pitt claimed that when he asked for water, he was provided with a cup and told to drink out of the toilet.
He said he was forced to sign a statement under duress admitting to rape and false imprisonment, was not read his rights, and was not given the opportunity to appoint his own lawyer.
Pitt told VCAT vice-president Judge Marilyn Harbison police had discriminated against him because he was mentally ill.
He claims to suffer from schizophrenia and depression.
Pitt lodged his anti-discrimination claim in the Equal Opportunity Commission this year.
It was dismissed on the grounds it lacked substance and he is appealing the decision in VCAT.
Pitt said police were aware he suffered from mental illness at the time of his arrest.
"They coerced me into signing a statement pleading to the counts of rape which was drawn up by a solicitor they chose while I was under extreme duress," Pitt said.
A lawyer acting for Victoria Police said Pitt's claims had no merit.
Victoria Police will move to strike out the claim at the next hearing, set for September 8, she said.
Pitt told VCAT he maintained his innocence over the attack, claiming he had not raped the girl.
The victim's terrified mother had reported her daughter missing two hours after she failed to turn up at a designated meeting place on November 27, 1998.
Police found Pitt and the girl -- who had been handcuffed, gagged and bound -- after crawling through 70m of tunnels in Black Hill.
It was the second time Pitt had been convicted for abducting a teenager.
He was jailed in 1990 for locking another teenage girl in the boot of his car.
Pitt pleaded guilty to two counts of rape and one of false imprisonment at the 1999 hearing, but claims he was coerced by police.
Shadow Attorney-General Robert Clark said the victim would be entitled to feel insulted by Pitt's legal move.

Sexual predator Anthony James Pitt sues Victoria Police

EXCLUSIVE: AN EVIL rapist who imprisoned a teenage sex slave in a mine shaft is suing police for mistreatment.
Anthony James Pitt was jailed for 17 years in December 1999 for luring a Ballarat schoolgirl, 16, into an underground dungeon and repeatedly raping her over 19 hours in November 1998.
Pitt, now 51, appeared in the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal via video link this morning claiming police had discriminated against him during and after his arrest.
He alleged police told fellow prisoners at the Ballarat holding cells he raped teenagers, and asked them if they would like to spit in his food.
He claimed that when he asked for water, he was provided with a cup and told to drink out of the toilet.
He said he was forced to sign a statement admitting to rape and false imprisonment under duress, was not read his rights, and was not given the opportunity to appoint his own lawyer.
Pitt told VCAT vice-president Judge Marilyn Harbison police had discriminated against him because he was mentally ill.
He claims to suffer from schizophrenia and depression.
Pitt lodged his anti-discrimination claim in the Equal Opportunity Commission earlier this year.
It was dismissed on the grounds it lacked substance. He is appealing the decision in VCAT.
Pitt- who is balding, wears small round glasses and was dressed in a blue and white flannelette shirt for the hearing - said police were aware he suffered from mental illness at the time of his arrest.
"They coerced me into signing a statement pleading to the counts of rape which was drawn up by a solicitor they chose while I was under extreme duress,'' Pitt said.
"They refused to read me my rights ... and exaggerated most of the evidence.''
Pitt said police also refused when he asked to have a shower and shave, instead cuffing him and leading him outside to a waiting media pack.
Judge Harbison asked Pitt why he had only lodged his claim now - nearly 10 years after the attack.
Pitt said he had recently received material explaining his rights.
"I was given a booklet explaining prisoners' rights, and now I want to stand up for them,'' he said.
A lawyer acting for Victoria Police said Pitt's claims had no merit.
"It was declined in the Commission on the basis that it lacks in substance, and police absolutely deny the claims,'' the lawyer said.
Victoria Police will move to strike out the claim at the next hearing, set for September 8, she said.
When Judge Harbison asked Pitt if the hearing date was suitable, Pitt replied it was: ''I'm not going anywhere in a hurry, I don't think.''
Pitt told VCAT he maintained his innocence over the attack, claiming he had not raped the girl.
The victim's terrified mother had reported her daughter missing two hours after she failed to turn up at a designated meeting place on November 27 1998.
She told police Pitt had floated the possibility of giving her daughter a part-time job, and gave police Pitt's business card.
Police interrogated Pitt's housemates and discovered he had fantasised about imprisoning a woman in a cave.
They found Pitt and the girl- who had been handcuffed, gagged and bound- after crawling through 70 metres of tunnels in Black Hill.
It was the second time Pitt had been convicted for abducting a teenager.
He was jailed in 1990 for locking another teenage girl in the boot of his car.
Pitt pleaded guilty to two counts of rape and one of false imprisonment at the 1999 hearing, but he claims he was coerced by police and is in fact innocent.
