Serial pedophile admits more victims
A former teacher's jail term for pedophilia should be extended after two new victims came forward, a court has heard.
The District Court today heard Ronald William Hopkins, 74, deprived the two men of their childhood, adolescence and manhood and caused them to feel depressed, angry and humiliated.
Hopkins had pleaded guilty to two counts of indecent assault and one count each of inciting a child to commit an indecent act and unlawful sexual intercourse by a guardian or teacher.
The offences took place between 1975 and 1991, during which Hopkins sexually abused other boys leading to a minimum seven-year jail term.
Today, Judge Steven Millsteed heard the former Blackfriars Priory School teacher and principal of St Bernadette's at St Mary's "groomed" his students with the purpose of sexually exploiting them.
Jane Powell, prosecuting, said the two new victims were said to be new to the school and were targeted as they were "particularly vulnerable".
Con O'Neill, for Hopkins, said his client - who is serving time at Mount Gambier prison - suffers from ill health including terminal prostate cancer and his body was "about to give up the ghost".
Mr O'Neill asked Judge Millsteed to consider allowing the defendant to spend his last few years in freedom with his wife and children.
In a statement read to the court, one of Hopkins'victims said he no longer trusted men or authority figures, is fearful and has been affected in his relationships with family members.
"I'm isolated and somewhat alienated from my support networks," the statement said.
Hopkins will be sentenced at a later date.

Sex Offence Teacher 'Out Of Control'
A former school teacher and convicted paedophile who sexually
abused five boys was "unable or unwilling to control his sexual
instincts", the District COurt has heard.
Ronald William Hopkins, 69, of Flagstaff Hill,
has pleaded guilty to five counts of unlawful sexual
intersourse by a teacher, five of indecent assault and one of gross indecency.
The offences against boys aged 12-16 occurred between 1975 abd 1991.
Prosecutor Amanda Piennar yesterday said Hopkins should be sentenced in the Supreme Court.
"It is the Crown submission that.....the nature of the offending and it's
circumstance suggest that Mr Hopkins is a man unable or unwilling to
control his sexual instincts," she said.
Under section 23 of the Criminal Law Sentencing Act,
a person regarded as unwilling to control their sexual
instincts must be sentenced in the Supreme Court.
"The Supreme Court will direct at least two legally qualified
medical practioners... to inquire into the mental condition
of a person to whom this section applies," the Act states.
It also states that a person will not be released from
detention until the court, on application from the Director of Public Prosections,
makes an order they be discharged.
Hopkins started work as a lay teacher at Blackfriars Priory School
in 1983. He resigned in late 1991 on the day a student made allegations
of improper conduct against him.
Hopkins was jailed in 1997 on unrelated sex offences.
Acting Judge Andrew Wilson yesterday remanded him in custody to face court again next week.
