News (30-6-2012)- "Rapist to spend an extra two years in jail"- http://www.canberratimes.com.au/act-news/rapist-to-spend-an-extra-two-years-in-jail-20120629-218fq.html

News (22-6-2011)- A convicted rapist has been jailed for five and a half years for an attack on a woman in Canberra's north two years ago. Alfred Chatfield pleaded guilty to sexual assault, aggravated robbery and acts of indecency committed against a woman in Dickson. The 43-year-old Harrison man grabbed the woman from behind as she was walking home along Northbourne Avenue, dragging her off the footpath and demanding sex while holding a knife to her throat. The ACT Supreme Court heard Chatfield was intoxicated and could not remember the attack. The man has an extensive criminal history including three rape convictions in Victoria and has spent much of his life in jail. In sentencing Justice Hilary Penfold said Chatfield is unlikely to stop abusing drugs and alcohol and is at risk of re-offending. He will be eligible for parole in 2013, after his sentence was backdated to include the time already spent in custody.

Name: MICHAEL STANLEY COOPER (Michael Cooper) (ACT- Canberra)
Age: 54 yrs old (2012)
Sentence: Sentenced in May - 2011, to 2 yrs jail - with 12-months served by way of weekend jail and the remainder suspended with a good-behaviour order..

Offence/Other: Michael Stanley Cooper- The largest haul of child pornography seized in the territory (ACT).
Police raided that home in January 2010 after the FBI linked Cooper to two video files containing child pornography uploaded to a website. Investigators seized almost 700 computer discs and 100 DVDs from Cooper's home; the raw data was found on seven desktop computers, one laptop computer and a number of external file storage devices. Almost 700,000 child abuse images and videos were found on the computers, disks, DVDs, devices and in A4 folders.

"Judges say sentence too lenient for porn offender" (13-2-2012)
The territory's top judge has said a weekend jail sentence was too lenient for a mentally ill man who amassed the largest haul of child pornography seized in the territory. But Michael Stanley Cooper will not be sent behind bars full-time because he has already served most of his periodic detention. Three judges of the ACT Court of Appeal yesterday ruled the original sentence handed down by acting Justice Nield was ''manifestly inadequate''. In May last year the judge sentenced Cooper to two years, with 12-months served by way of weekend jail and the remainder suspended with a good-behaviour order. ''We've come to the view that the sentence was manifestly inadequate and did need to be increased,'' Chief Justice Terence Higgins said yesterday. The appeal judges - Chief Justice Higgins, Justice Richard Refshauge and Justice Dennis Cowdroy - increased the total sentence to three years. Half of the term will be served by periodic detention with the remainder suspended. But Chief Justice Higgins said if he had been the sentencing judge he would have locked up Cooper full-time for six months, to be followed by a year of weekend jail. During the earlier sentencing hearings Cooper was described as a virtual recluse suffering from obsessive compulsive disorder and a schizoid personality disorder. The 54-year-old had no friends, no contact with his family and lived alone at his own home. Police raided that home in January 2010 after the FBI linked Cooper to two video files containing child pornography uploaded to a website. Investigators seized almost 700 computer discs and 100 DVDs from Cooper's home; the raw data was found on seven desktop computers, one laptop computer and a number of external file storage devices. Almost 700,000 child abuse images and videos were found on the computers, disks, DVDs, devices and in A4 folders. The images range from the low end of the scale used to rank the graphic nature of child pornography - the Oliver scale - through to the highest category used to classify images of sadism or bestiality. On appeal DPP Jon White argued the judge placed too much weight on Cooper's good character and not enough weight on discouraging other would-be offenders. The director also argued weekend jail was inappropriate because of the ''inbuilt leniency''. ''It has to be accepted that because it's a significantly more lenient alternative that the wrong message can be sent if it's imposed in the wrong circumstances,'' Mr White said. The Crown had called for both an increase of the two-year head sentence and a declaration the judges would have taken a tougher stance at the outset. But the prosecution conceded it would not be appropriate to jail Cooper full-time three-quarters of the way through his weekend jail stretch. Cooper's barrister argued periodic detention was the appropriate punishment for her socially isolated, mentally ill client. The defendant will now spend his weekends behind bars until November, and the court will publish its reasons at a later date.

"Australia jails Indian diplomat's son for paedophilia" (27-9-2013)
An Australian court Thursday sentenced 34-year-old paedophile Navin Edwin, son of an Indian diplomat, to over 10 years in jail for a series of sexual offences. He faces deportation at the end of his prison term. Edwin was sentenced by the Australian Capital Territory (ACT) Supreme Court judge John Burns for 10 years and eight months, backdated to take into account time spent in custody, with a non-parole period of six-and-a-half years. Burns handed down the jail term to Edwin for a series of offences against three young girls between 2009 and 2010. He will be eligible for parole in March 2017. He is expected to appeal the decision, The Canberra Times reported. Two ACT Supreme Court juries, in separate trials in May and June, rejected Edwin’s claims of innocence and found him guilty of 17 offences, including producing and possessing child pornography, acts of indecency and child grooming. His criminal activities were discovered after adults swapped a series of text messages with the man via an 11-year-old victim’s mobile phone. They notified the police, who raided Edwin’s home and discovered home-made child pornography. Edwin unsuccessfully attempted to explain his crimes at the two trials, claiming the pornography was part of medical research and an art project. Justice Burns said Edwin, the son of an Indian diplomat whose identity was not disclosed, had lied shamelessly under oath and continued the pattern of dishonesty since. The judge said the defendant had shown no remorse. “I doubt very much that you have any understanding of the concepts of morality or conscience. These offences suggest as much,” Burns said. The judge said Edwin presented a high risk of re-offending and had grave doubts about his rehabilitation. The court has previously heard the Indian national would likely be deported upon release, a course of action the judge supported. Like many offenders, Edwin hid in plain sight. He ran a business, had a long-term girlfriend, was active in the church, and performed in amateur theatre productions. But Burns said that this identity was a smokescreen to disguise his sexual attraction to young girls

"Man found guilty of child sexual abuse" (1-12-2011)
A 57-year-old Canberra man has been found guilty of sexually abusing a 13-year-old girl in the mid 1990s. An ACT Supreme Court jury has found Michael Alan Gillard guilty of an act of indecency and attempted sexual intercourse with the girl when she was staying at his house between December 1995 and January 1996. Gillard was a friend of the girl's father. The victim told the court, she did not complain until 2008 because she did not want to cause any fights and she did not think anyone would believe her. Gillard shook his head when the jury returned the two guilty verdicts after only two hours. In an earlier trial, Gillard was found guilty of sexual offences against the girl's elder sister, which included forcing her to have oral sex in the presence of her younger sibling, at a time when she was above the age of consent. He is due to be sentenced for that verdict later this week. Justice John Burns has released Gillard on bail, pending his next appearance. Read more.

"Scouts refer sex abuse file to royal commission" (25-1-2013)
Scouts Australia is referring a file on a 1980s scout leader to the royal commission into child sexual abuse. Scout leader Paul Hayes, also known by his scout name Grizzly, was accused of interfering with eight boys over a 20-month period in Canberra and Sydney. Victim Steven Cox, who was abused by Hayes, says he is disgusted with the Scouts for failing to report the matters to police. He has accused the association of putting its reputation ahead of the welfare of the children in its care. Mr Cox says he has found internal Scout documents that show at least eight other complaints were lodged against the paedophile. "It's just a cover-up. That's all it was - it was a cover-up to protect the Scouts' name and keep it all quiet so it never got out anywhere," he said. "To me they're just as guilty as him. They may not have done the abuse, but they knew all about him and did nothing." Mr Cox's life changed forever in 1984 after Hayes invited him to go sailing on the Georges River in Sydney. During two of these excursions, he was forced to masturbate the scout leader and was subjected to attempted penetration. "When he picked me up on the Friday afternoon, I hadn't been in the car more than five minutes before he placed his hand on my thigh and then placed my hand on his thigh," he said. "It was like that all the way home. When we got back to his place it got a lot worse." Mr Cox, now 40, now finds it hard to enjoy even the simple pleasures of life. He loves boating, but even a day on the water reminds him of his heavy and painful burden. "It eats at you. It's hard because even now there's not many days go by where at some point during the day or night you think what happened," he said. "You don't forget it and it just slowly eats away at you." 'Darkest secrets' The young scout kept these assaults a secret until he was in his 20s when he told his parents. But it was not until 2008 when he decided to go to the police, driving with his wife from Brisbane down to New South Wales where the offence took place. "It was the hardest thing I've done in my life, to sit there and tell someone your deepest, darkest secrets," he said. "Even with your wife sitting beside you - she knew I'd been abused but she didn't know what had happened, as I said I'd told no-one." Mr Cox later discovered Hayes had already served a jail term for inappropriate touching of a minor in 2002. His testimony led to Hayes serving two more years in jail after a jury in 2010 found him guilty of five counts of indecent assault and one count of attempted illegal intercourse. Perpetrator 'exploited' Hayes was involved with the 15th Canberra troop when the first accusation of abuse surfaced against him in the early 1980s. He was accused of raping a 10-year-old boy after a performance of the Scout production known as the Gang Show. In a written complaint to the Scouts, the boy's mother quoted her son giving explicit details of abuse on at least five occasions. Hayes denied everything and the Scout committee appointed to consider the complaint gave him a sympathetic hearing. One committee member attempted to discredit the victim by explaining the boy had close relatives who were homosexual. The committee debated whether to refer the matter to police but instead decided to seek legal advice. The lawyer later wrote back, saying: "It seems your association has done all that you should in the circumstances... I have a sneaking suspicion that Mr Hayes has been cleverly exploited." Hayes had his permit to act as a scout official suspended for only six weeks. Within months he was appointed leader of the troop in a Scout hall in Sydney. The Scout's website claims the association has a decades-long practice of reporting all suspected abuse. 'Very sad' When the allegations against Hayes first arose, the Scouts made no reports to police. Scouts Australia says it did not go to police because of the wishes of most of the boys' parents. However, one family did advise authorities. Chief commissioner of Scouts Australia Reg Williams denies there was a cover-up and that its actions were not unusual. Mr Williams says the organisation has improved its reporting practices since then. "Yes, I'm disappointed," he said. "I'm very sad to see this situation occur, but you've got to go back and look in the shoes of the people of the day." The Scout Association is referring the file on Hayes to the royal commission into child abuse, and in response to 7.30's inquiries has referred another file involving a contemporary of Hayes to NSW police. "We've upped the ante to community expectation standard, our own standard and we believe we've got a very high standard and we're going to work at it," Mr Williams said. "I, as the leader of the Scout movement, am determined that we're going to be pursuing these sort of perpetrators and minimise the chance of this sort of thing happening again."

News (21-12-2012)- "Police pursue paedophiles for sharing porn in jail"
Convicted paedophiles in Canberra's jail have allegedly set up a pornography ring, sharing electronic images of child sex abuse under the noses of prison guards. Several investigations are under way into how the three prisoners, two of them the ACT's most dangerous child sex predators, were able to obtain and share files containing the material while serving their sentences at the Alexander Maconochie Centre. It is even alleged that a child pornography website was hosted from within the prison before police raided it on Tuesday. The ACT government's Justice and Community Safety directorate is set to come under intense scrutiny to explain how the alleged ring was allowed to develop. The prison's intelligence unit began passing information to jail authorities about the men's suspected activities several months ago but it is unclear what led to the delay in calling in police. Central to the alleged plot was a laptop computer which a fourth prisoner, who has since been released, had permission to bring into the jail despite the misgivings of some guards. The USB drives, which look like cigarette lighters in prison X-ray security screening images, are relatively easy to smuggle into jail and can be plugged into ports on the set-top boxes. The technical expertise is believed to have been developed and shared by an offender, who cannot be named for legal reasons, who served four years of a nine-year sentence for what a judge described as ''premeditated and predatory'' rapes of a 10-year-old boy. The paedophile, an IT expert, was deported to his native South Africa after serving his four-year non-parole period and being found to have behaved well while in jail. But before his release he was allowed to have a laptop computer which allegedly led to the development of the pornography ring. Another man suspected to be involved - Aaron James Holliday - is serving a 16-year sentence for a string of offences against young boys. He has been described as a computer expert. Holliday was alleged by police to have developed an amateurish, and unsuccessful, plot while in jail to silence once of his victims, a 15-year-old boy, by having the youth murdered. Another of the suspects, whose name is also suppressed by the courts, is serving 10 years for several offences, including abusing his one-year-old son and sharing footage of the acts with other online offenders. He was also convicted of possessing 23,549 images and 1013 videos of child pornography and also abused the children of friends to produce the material. The third man is remanded in custody at the jail, awaiting trial for allegedly using a child for the production of pornography and other offences. An ACT Policing spokesman said detectives were examining several devices seized in Tuesday's raid. ''The contents of the computers and devices are being reviewed by AFP Digital Forensics,'' he said.

One of the ACT's most notorious convicted paedophiles, Aaron James Holliday, was a former trainee leader of the Scouts in 2007, while a member of the older Venturers section group, for members aged 13-18, was convicted of child sex offences against a 13-year-old girl he met in the movement in 2004. -read more-

News (29-11-2010)
A Canberra man who had sex with underage boys after telling them they were training to catch paedophiles, will spend at least the next six years behind bars. Aaron James Holliday pleaded guilty to committing an act of indecency on a child, two counts of possessing child pornography and eight counts of engaging in sexual intercourse with minors. The 24-year-old befriended his three child victims before abusing them. He told two of the boys they were being trained for a program called "pedobait" to help police catch paedophiles. He took them to Mt Majura for what he told them was a training session and then engaged in sexual acts with them. When police arrested Holliday they found 11,000 child pornography images on his computer. In sentencing, Justice Richard Refshauge said Holliday deceived his victims in a sinister way and the abuse had long lasting affects on the children. Justice Refshauge took into account Holliday himself had been abused at boarding school. He sentenced Holliday to 14 years and six months in jail, with a non-parol period of seven years from April last year.
Call for action- The parents of one of the victims is calling on governments to do more to stop child pornography. The father says child pornography encouraged Holliday to commit the crimes. "The internet industry basically have this lie, where they turn around and say it's not their responsibility," he said. "Well crap, they sell it, they should make sure it's safe for people who buy it and they don't, and the Government doesn't require them to do it. It's about time they did." The boy's mother says while the case has been a nightmare for everyone invovled, the bigger problem is child pornography in general. "I really think governments should stand up, not only pass the laws but to dam well enforce them, and put the resources behind it to enforce the law about chid pornography and pornography generally." But she's relieved the case is over. "It's closure for our boys," she said. "They're really brave. But no one can take any satisfaction out of this horrible situation... it's a nightmare for everyone." "We're pleased the courts have taken the issue seriously and are helping keep our children safe."

Jail for sex attack that left victim with nightmares (26-3-2011)
A 35-year-old man convicted of a sexual assault that left his victim with post-traumatic stress and vivid nightmares has been sentenced to 7 years in jail. Craig Paul Meyboom was sentenced in the ACT Supreme Court yesterday for sexual assault, common assault and three acts of indecency committed in 2006. Meyboom attacked the young woman in April 2006, sexually assaulting her and stealing her mobile phone. Two days later he committed acts of indecency towards two other young women and committed another indecent act in June 2006. Meyboom pleaded guilty to the acts of indecency but not guilty to the sexual assault. He stood trial for the assault and was found guilty earlier this year. In a victim impact statement read out in court, the sexual assault victim said she would not wish her feelings of helplessness and pain on her worst enemy. She wrote that she suffered continuing post-traumatic stress disorder and vivid flashback nightmares. She had also experienced mental breakdowns since the attack. The woman said the five-year wait for a trial and for a sentence had been paralysing and excruciating for her spirit. "I deserve justice for what has been done to me," she wrote. Meyboom has been in custody since 2006. The court heard Meyboom, who had been on parole at the time of the offences, had suffered a "rapid descent" into drug use after resigning from a highly stressful job. His barrister said Meyboom had been working as a cleaner and been promoted to a management position but was unable to cope with the added stress the job brought. He had also suffered from the effects of "grossly inadequate" parenting, growing up in a household where drugs were freely available, his lawyer said. The author of a pre-sentence report said Meyboom consumed up to 25 standard drinks a night on weekends, injected drugs and took four Valium tablets a night to get to sleep. The court heard Meyboom had completed self-help and rehabilitation programs while in prison but had refused to discuss the sexual offences with the report author. The prosecution said the offences involved attacks on strangers in public places and Meyboom's use of violence against women going about their daily lives was distressing. Chief Justice Terence Higgins sentenced Meyboom to a total of 7 years in prison with a non-parole period of five years. He backdated the sentence to 2007. Meyboom will be eligible for parole in November 2012.

Jail for child predator (18-2-2011)
A Canberra man who planned to have sex with a 12-year-old child he met on the internet, will serve another six months in jail. Alan Winston Priest, 60, pleaded guilty in the ACT Supreme Court to using a carriage service to procure a young person. An undercover Australian Federal Agent, pretending to be a 12-year-old boy called Jamie, chatted to Priest online during April and May 2008. Priest, aged 57 at the time, told Jamie his age and spoke explicitly to him about sex. He organised to meet the boy at the Lyneham shops saying: "All I ask is you never tell anyone, not even your best friend. I would be in big trouble if anyone found out." Priest cancelled the initial meeting telling Jamie, "If you are not who you say you are, I am in big trouble." But Priest soon organised another meeting, telling Jamie, "If anyone says anything, I am your uncle and you are my nephew." Police arrested Priest at the Lyneham shops in May 2008. The crown argued the case called for a punishment of specific and general deterrence. The lawyer said, "The evidence is clear. Mr Priest ...knew what he was doing, knew it was wrong and illegal. He nevertheless persisted." Priest's defence lawyer argued his client had undergone the Adult Sex Offenders Program and he was anxious to continue treatment. Justice Hilary Penfold sentenced Priest to three years and nine months imprisonment, backdated to August 2010. Priest will be eligible for parol in August this year.

"Serial child molester jailed for assaulting young girl in library" (29-1-2014)
A ‘‘despicable’’ child molester who sexually assaulted a three-year-old girl in a public library while her mother was just metres away has been sentenced to seven-and-a-half years in prison. Shane Williams, 40 of Campbell, was walking to a police station, when he entered the Belconnen Library to go to the toilet in September last year. Williams is a paedophile with an ‘‘appalling’’ 20-year history of crimes against children, and was on bail for the racist bashing of his neighbour, who he had accused of stealing his country, ten months earlier. While in the library, a three-year-old girl came up to him in a friendly manner and said ‘‘hello’’. The vulnerable young girl had walked away from her mother, who was using the library computers nearby. Williams told her to sit down with him, before pulling down his and her pants and beginning to sexually assault her. The girl’s mother, noticing her child had wandered off, came looking for her, and stumbled onto the terrible scene. She screamed, and Williams ran off, eventually arrested some days later. He admitted what he had done to police, telling them he was highly intoxicated at the time, after drinking wine and beer, and smoking four cones of cannabis. Williams was charged with sexual intercourse with a minor, and faced the ACT Supreme Court for sentencing for the child molestation and earlier assault offence. The court heard that Williams had bashed his African neighbour in November 2012, after knocking on his door and expressing anger that the victim was ‘‘taking his country’’. Williams, who was heavily intoxicated, walked off, and the victim walked outside to get something from his car. But the 40-year-old returned, grabbing the victim and punching him in the mouth. The blow knocked the man to the ground, and Williams continued to deliver punches to his face and head until a witness ran out and told him to stop. The victim suffered a ‘‘very nasty’’ laceration to his lip, requiring hospitalisation, and still suffers physical and psychological harm. Chief Justice Helen Murrell sentenced Williams to seven years and six months jail for both crimes on Wednesday, setting a non-parole period of four years and six months. He has already served time in custody, and will first be eligible for release in March 2018. Crown prosecutor Sara Gul said the community needed protection from Williams, who had an ‘‘appalling’’ history of over 20 years of offences against the most vulnerable members of the community. Ms Gul said he posed a ‘‘significant danger’’ and appeared to have little chance of rehabilitation. Chief Justice Murrell acknowledged the impacts the crimes would likely have had on all victims, including the young girl’s mother. ‘‘I would be amazed if the mother did not suffer serious psychological effects from the incident,’’ she said. She said no one would expect their daughter not to be safe in a public library. ‘‘That would have been extremely upsetting for the mother and no doubt her memories of that moment remain vivid.’’ Williams himself went through a terrible childhood, where he was severely neglected, physically and sexually abused, and started drinking at 12, and using cannabis at 10. Chief Justice Murrell said Williams was subjected to sexual abuse of the ‘‘most heinous type’’ as a child. His alcoholic father beat him regularly, and his mother left him when he was young. Chief Justice Murrell said this level of disadvantage was, unfortunately, typical of indigenous offenders.
