Convicted Sex Fiends Win Right To Work Near Children
A RAPIST and more than 40 other sex offenders have had their bans
on working with children overturned so they can pursue jobs
that will bring them into contact with youngsters.
The convicted criminals have applied over the past 12 months
to be removed from the New South Wales prohibited person list
so they can take up jobs with or near children, The Daily Telegraph has learned.
Documents obtained under Freedom of Information show a
41-year-old man convicted of indecently assaulting a
nine-year-old girl has been approved to work unsupervised
with children and young people.
The man - who was convicted in 2005 - went to the
Administrative Decisions Tribunal to get lifted the
ban on working with children.
In another case a man, 49, who as a 23-year-old raped
a woman, 27, after assaulting her in a park, has won
the right to take a job as a bus driver, bringing him
into contact with children.
He had chased the woman as she walked her dog at night, then pulled
her into long grass where he had sex with her. The man received a
six-year jail sentence.
The Administrative Decisions Tribunal, imposing conditions
requiring him to see a psychiatrist and banning him from smoking
cannabis, said it was satisfied he did not pose "a real and
appreciable risk to children".
But the tribunal refused to lift a working-with-children ban
on a doctor who indecently assaulted female patients during
It said: "... there is a real risk that the applicant might
physically or verbally abuse children if he were to return to
Figures obtained by The Daily Telegraph show bans on 29 sex
offenders were lifted in 2005-2006 by the Commission for
Children and Young People, 13 were lifted by the Administrative
Decisions Tribunal and one by the Industrial Relations Commission.
In 2004-2005 31 sex offenders had bans lifted by the CCYP, eight
by the ADT and one by the IRC.
The data show sex offenders continue to thumb their nose at the
system despite revelations in The Daily Telegraph more than a year
ago that perverts were seeking jobs as school bus drivers, teachers,
sports coaches and even youth workers.
It is more than year since the Iemma Government flagged new laws
outlawing sex offenders from working with children.
NSW Commissioner for Children and Young People Gillian Calvert
said the legislation took effect this month
strengthening the check system.
"Approvals to change a Prohibited Person status are not
granted lightly," she said.

NSW Has 'Toughest Sex-Offender Laws'
NSW HAD the toughest laws in the country to stop child-sex offenders working
with children, the State Government said today.
A Freedom of Information investigation by The Daily Telegraph revealed a
child-sex offender had been approved to work unsupervised with children after
a ban was overturned.
The 41-year-old man was reported to be one of more than 40, including a rapist,
who have overcome similar bans.
NSW Acting Community Services Minister John Hatzistergos said today that new
laws introduced on January 2 had narrowed the categories of people who could
work with children.
The categories of offenders who could seek to overturn the ban also had been
narrowed with those convicted of serious offences like sexual assault, child
pornography and child murder banned for life.
"People who are sex offenders are grubs, and these new laws, I think, go a
long way to addressing the community concerns," Mr Hatzistergos said.
"I'm advised they are the toughest laws in Australia."
Commissioner for Children and Young People Gillian Calvert said she was
confident the new laws could protect young people.
"I think the approach that we currently have in NSW is world-leading," she said.
"I think we have a strong approach and we have a fair approach, I think
the system in NSW is working."
