Sentence: Sentenced 4-4-2011, in the Perth District Court, to 6 yrs and 1 month in prison - eligible for parole after serving 4 yrs and 1 month, backdated to July 25 last year 2010 when taken into custody.

Offence/Other: Neil Sachman sexually assaulted a 14-year-old girl, after pulling her into bushes near a railway station in Greenwood, in the city's north on 25-7-2010.
Pleaded guilty to 1 count of deprivation of liberty- 3 counts of aggravated indecent assault-1 count of aggravated sexual penetration without consent. Also sentenced for stalking a woman between November 2008 and April 2009 and some driving offences/ breaching suspended sentence.


News (6-4-2011)- A young father who was filmed stalking a 14-year-old girl on a Perth train before he dragged her into secluded bush in Greenwood and molested her has been jailed. Neil Martin Sachman was yesterday sentenced to six years and one month jail for the July 25 attack on the teenager, for stalking offences committed against a Busselton woman over several months in late 2008 and 2009 and for traffic matters. Security camera footage shows how Sachman stalked the girl, who had been shopping south of Perth, after he boarded a train at Bull Creek. Sachman was filmed following the teenager when she left the train at Greenwood station. The West Australian understands footage from a security camera at a Greenwood home shows how Sachman was so fixated on the girl that he was almost hit by a car he failed to notice as he was following her. The District Court was told he asked the girl for the time before putting his hand over her mouth and dragging her into secluded bushes south of the train station. He forced the girl to kiss him, fondled her breasts and sexually penetrated her before masturbating over her legs. "It was a frightening and demeaning experience for the young victim, who no longer feels able to travel on public transport by herself," Chief Judge Peter Martino said. "She's had difficulties with education and friendships. She has ongoing anxiety, anger and depression." Sachman was on bail for stalking offences in Busselton when he molested the girl. The court was told how Sachman made sexually explicit and threatening phone calls to a woman once described as a friend who owed him $200. "Your conduct caused considerable distress and anxiety to the victim, and has also had a long-standing impact upon her, causing anxiety and loss of confidence and restriction in her social and work activities," Chief Judge Martino said of the stalking matter. Sachman was also sentenced over a crash on South Street, Kardinya, when he was driving without a valid licence. Chief Judge Martino accepted that Sachman's guilty pleas showed a willingness to facilitate the course of justice. Sachman will be subject to lifetime restraining orders over his two victims. He will be eligible for parole after serving four years and one month of his sentence, backdated to July 25 last year when he was taken into custody. http://au.news.yahoo.com/thewest/a/-/breaking/9142718/child-molester-jailed-for-six-years/

M/F
Name: PETER SAMUEL (QLD- Maroochydore)
Age: 42 yrs old (2012)
Sentence: Sentenced 9-5-2012, in the Vic County Court, to 10.5 yrs jail - 7.5 yrs non parole.

Offence/Other: Found guilty by a County Court jury of 5 counts of rape and committing an indecent act with a person under 16. Peter Samuel who was caught by DNA testing, viciously raped a teenage girl in the Victorian seaside town of Torquay in 1999.

News (9-5-2012)- "Man jailed for vicious rape of teen in Torquay 13 years ago"-
A DNA sample taken after a minor drug offence in Queensland led to a man being jailed for seven and a half years today for the vicious rape of a teenager in Torquay in 1999. Judge Felicity Hampel said Peter Samuel was DNA tested after being convicted of marijuana possession in 2008 and a check with a national data base linked him to DNA material found on the jeans of a 15-year-old victim. Judge Hampel said that a jury at Samuel's trial heard that the odds were 120 million to one that the DNA came from another Caucasian male. Samuel lived in Torquay for less than a year in the late '90s before moving to Queensland with his family. Queensland has tough DNA laws and if Samuel had been charged with marijuana possession in Victoria he would not have been DNA tested and he would never have been caught. Judge Hampel said at the height of the holiday season in Torquay Samuel, 42, followed the girl as she walked home late at night. He bailed her up with a knife and forced her to clamber over a barbed wire fence at Torquay golf course where forced her to remove her clothes, held her face down and committed vaginal, oral and anal rapes. "She was subjected to a terrifying ordeal and she was violated,'' Judge Hampel told Samuel. "You had no respect for her. She was no more than an object to be used in any way you wished.'' Father of two Samuel, a plasterer of Maroochydore, was found guilty by a County Court jury of five counts of rape and committing an indecent act with a person under 16. Judge Hampel said Samuel's wife was pregnant at the time he raped the teenager, who was left devastated by the "random, shocking and life changing event''. On the night of the attack the victim believed she would die and she was left with a constant fear for her safety, flashbacks and had engaged in destructive behaviour and developed an eating disorder. In a victim impact statement she said she was determined to focus on the positives and realised life cannot be taken for granted. "Most of all I am happy to be alive,'' the victim said. Judge Hampel said Samuel's family was shocked at his conviction and he still maintained his innocence and she believed his chances of re-offending were low. She jailed Samuel for a maximum term of 10 and a half years.

Name: ANTHONY SARACENO (VIC - Templestowe)
Age: 46 yrs old (2013)
Sentence: Sentenced in July 2013, in the Melbourne County Court, to 2 months jail - to be followed by a recognisance release order for three years. To be a registered sex offender for life.

Offence/Other: Anthony Saraceno pleaded guilty to knowingly possessing and soliciting child pornography, using a carriage service to make child pornography available, and attempting to pervert the course of justice.

"Jail for man who collected child pornography like swap cards" (26-7-2013)
A Melbourne man who collected images of child pornography like they were stamps or swap cards has been jailed for two months. Anthony Saraceno, 46, deleted his collections from a laptop and loaded it up with innocuous data after police visited his Templestowe home last August. The former helicopter pilot even altered the computer's internal clock so programs would appear to be newly installed. County Court judge Marilyn Harbison said police located 887 "degrading and disturbing" images and 21 videos of young girls, aged between eight and 15 and engaged in erotic poses or sexual acts, through sophisticated recovery techniques. She said Saraceno's collecting, which included his posting "chilling" online messages in an effort to complete his disorganised and incomplete sets of images, "bordered on obsessive". Some images came from two now-defunct Ukranian companies that posed as modelling agencies and exploited more than 1500 girls. Judge Harbison said Saraceno did not appreciate that these children - the victims of his crime - "were forced to pose and degrade themselves in such a way for your enjoyment". "They are not avatars; they are real children who will most likely never recover from their ordeals," she said. Saraceno and other similar offenders were responsible for propping up "this despicable trade" by creating demand for the abhorrent images, the judge said. "To see young girls in titillating poses with their genitalia exposed should be revolting to every civilised person," she said. Saraceno pleaded guilty to knowingly possessing and soliciting child pornography, using a carriage service to make child pornography available, and attempting to pervert the course of justice. Australian Federal Police searched Saraceno's home after being tipped off by the US Federal Bureau of Investigation, but could not locate the laptop that he handed in later that day in his attempt to destroy the evidence. Forensic psychologist Dr Patrick Newton likened Saraceno's addiction to child pornography - which had apparently strayed from adult pornography because of boredom and loneliness - to problem gambling. He said the man displayed candour and openness to sex-offender treatment. His parents and partner cried as he was sentenced to two months' immediate imprisonment, to be followed by a recognisance release order for three years. Saraceno will be a registered sex offender for life.

"Melb man jailed for baby porn possession" (13-2-2013)
A Melbourne man who downloaded 45,000 "abhorrent" images of children engaged in sexual acts has been jailed for at least 16 months. Bernd Schnull, 62, was jailed for 34 months in the Victorian County Court on Wednesday after pleading guilty to accessing and possessing child porn. He had used peer-to-peer file sharing websites such as eMule to download 45,287 images and 1611 videos of child pornography, depicting victims aged between six months and 16 years old. Of those, nearly 200 images and 53 videos were considered to be in the worst category of child pornography. In sentencing Schnull, Judge Mark Gamble said some of the material showed child victims in situations where they would have felt pain, confusion and humiliation. "What was depicted was abhorrent," he said. Judge Gamble said he took into account Schnull's early guilty plea, previous good character, lack of prior convictions, good prospects of rehabilitation and the fact he had voluntarily sought professional help for his problem. The court heard Schnull gained no sexual arousal from the material, but did it out of boredom, claiming he was attracted to the novelty and driven by curiosity. He told police the images were like a "forbidden fruit", but he had no sexual attraction toward children and could not see himself performing those acts. Schnull, of Warranwood, will be released from jail after 16 months on a recognisance order which requires him to be of good behaviour for 18 months.

"Man watched child porn for 'stress relief', court hears" (29-1-2013)
A man caught with more than 45,000 images and 1600 videos of child pornography on his computer told police he had no sexual interest in children, a court heard today. Bernd Schnull, 62, of Warranwood, claimed watching child pornography helped to relieve his stress and anxiety over the problems he was having with his wife at home. Schnull would download the images in his study where you needed an access code to get into the room. He would come home from work and go straight on to his computer. Schnull pleaded guilty in the County Court on Tuesday to one count of accessing child pornography and one count of possession of child pornography involving children aged from six months to 16. He faces a maximum penalty of 15 years' jail. Prosecutor Samantha Holmes told the court Schnull had downloaded a total of 45,287 images and 1611 videos between August 8, 2011, and March 20, 2012. The police measure child pornography on a scale, with level five being the worst. Schnull had nearly 200 images in the level 5 category. Schnull was arrested during a joint state and federal police operation aimed at smashing a child pornography ring operating on Australia's eastern seaboard. He was one of 16 men arrested after police raided 19 properties in Victoria, New South Wales, Queensland and the ACT. But defence barrister Sandy Robertson said Schnull had been acting alone and did not take part in any chat rooms on child pornography or share any files. Mr Robertson said Schnull sought psychological treatment after his arrest to try to understand his offending. He said Schnull claimed to have stumbled across the child pornography and was "caught in a web of depraved vile images". Schnull knew what he was doing was illegal but watching child porn helped to ease his boredom at home and the lack of intimacy with his wife. Judge Mark Gamble, who briefly adjourned the plea hearing after being asked by the prosecutor to view a sample of 40 images taken from Schnull's computer, said sexual stimulation must have played a role in Schnull's offending. Judge Gamble said Schnull had gone to a great deal of trouble to download the images, including securing his study so others could not get in. Mr Robertson said it was difficult for Schnull to explain but he had been attracted by the novelty of the images and was driven by curiosity. Downloading thousands of images became a compulsive habit. Mr Robertson conceded there must have been an element of sexual stimulation for Schnull otherwise he wouldn't have bothered. Since undergoing therapy in August last year, Schnull, who had had little empathy for the victims, was now ashamed and remorseful and realised his actions had helped feed the market for child pornography. A psychological report indicated Schnull did not fit the profile of a repeat sexual offender and was unlikely to reoffend. In his letter of apology read to the court, Schnull said he felt revulsion for what he had done and realised he needed help. Ms Holmes said Schnull, a father of four, should be jailed for at least 18 months and placed on the sexual offenders register for 15 years given the seriousness of the offending and nature and amount of material seized. Judge Gamble will sentence Schnull on February 13.

"Police can grab sex fiends" (9-2-2007)
Police will get new powers to try to stop a repeat of the bungle that saw three men who escaped from a secure sex offender centre given a 19-hour head start. The trio escaped from the Statewide Forensic Services unit at Fairfield about 10.20pm on January 11, but because of legal loopholes and protocol bungles a day passed before police could publicly identify them. They were arrested the next day when one gave himself up and led police to the other two, who were enjoying themselves at Crown casino. The Government was severely embarrassed by the incident. It highlighted problems between Victoria Police and the Department of Human Services in dealing with sex offenders at the Fairfield therapeutic centre for people with intellectual disabilities. Community Services Minister Gavin Jennings will today announce changes to protocols between the two agencies. Top of the list will be powers to allow police to immediately arrest anyone who escapes from the centre, regardless of what legal order they were detained under. Police will be able to quickly release photos of dangerous escapees. Read more.

"Serial rapist's Afghan ethnicity no excuse, says judge" (12-4-2012)
A Judge has today rejected an Afghan refugee's claim that he raped an intoxicated and vulnerable teenager because of cultural differences. Esmatullah Sharifi, 30, was appearing in the County Court for the second time in less than three years on a charge of rape and Judge Mark Dean said his background as a traumatised Muslim refugee was no excuse. The judge said a psychologist told the court Sharifi, who came to Australia in 2001 on a temporary protection visa, had "an unclear concept of what constitutes consent in sexual relationships'' in Australia. But the judge said Sharifi's background and flight from the Taliban in Afghanistan could not excuse an extreme act of violence. "You well knew the victim was not consenting to the act of sexual penetration you performed,'' Judge Dean said. Sentencing Sharifi for the rape of the 18-year-old woman, Judge Dean said that he had driven from his home in Tullamarine to Frankston looking for a victim. The woman was alone, intoxicated and sitting on the footpath near the 21st Century nightclub after she had a disagreement with her friends. Sharifi sat down beside her, started talking to her and offered to drive her to a hotel in Mornington where her friends had gone. Judge Dean said Sharifi drove in a different direction and the victim became concerned and texted her friends but he took her phone and found a dark street where he stopped. As she cried and asked if he planned to kill her Sharifi put his hand around her neck and forced her to remove her clothes before raping her. Read more.

News (21-12-2012)- "'Horror' rapist has life sentence reduced"
A Queensland man convicted of inflicting "unimaginable horrors" on a 13-year-old girl has had his life sentence reduced on appeal. Andrew Scott Shenfield, 41, and Rebecca Louise Mahony, 33, were jailed for life by a Supreme Court judge in Brisbane last year for 30 offences including 13 counts of rape and torture. Their crimes against their 13-year-old victim were described as perverted degradation, that was not a nightmare for the victim but a living hell that left her with mental scarring she will carry for the rest of her life. Both appealed against their sentences. Mahony's appeal was dismissed after the Court of Appeal considered evidence she intended to kill her victim. Shenfield's life sentence, however, was reduced to 18 years because he had prevented Mahony from doing so.

"Key drug figure in jail" (13-6-2008)
A key player in a Geelong amphetamine ring was yesterday jailed for three-and-a-half years. Scott Thomas Sheppard, 41, of Geelong West, pleaded guilty in the County Court to two counts of trafficking a drug of dependence, and counts of possessing a drug of dependence and possessing proceeds of crime. In sentencing, Judge Geoffrey Chettle said Sheppard manufactured and supplied amphetamine to drug dealers between November 2006 and February 2007. He said police began investigating a sophisticated, Geelong-based drug ring in late 2006, targeting Sheppard after learning he had bought drug-making equipment on the internet. Police listening devices and intercepts on a mobile phone owned by Sheppard indicated he was trafficking drugs. In one conversation he agreed to buy 140 packets of pseudoephedrine tablets for $8000. During the investigation, one of Sheppard's key dealers sold two grams of amphetamine to undercover police in Geelong West in early 2007. Sheppard was also seen dealing drugs in the inner-city suburb, the court heard. Judge Chettle said investigators later raided a house in Martin St, Thomson, where Sheppard was found in a rear shed trying to destroy evidence, including glass vessels used to make amphetamine. Police then searched his Nichol St home in Geelong West, finding more drug paraphernalia and $4600 cash. He was arrested in March 2007, when found carrying foil packets of amphetamine for personal use. Judge Chettle said Sheppard "ran foul" of a Geelong motorcycle gang and was subjected to physical abuse and harassment after a court convicted him of possessing child pornography in April 2005. Sheppard was again jailed in December last year for firearm and drug crimes, for which he is serving a minimum six-month sentence. Judge Chettle said Sheppard had been in protective custody because of his child porn conviction, and also noted the man's troubled background. "You fail to appreciate the tragic consequences of drugs in the community these courts so often see," he said. Sheppard will serve a minimum of two years and three months for the drug crimes - Read more.

Offence/Other: Andrew Sheppeard, pleaded guilty to 7 counts of using the Internet to access child pornography.

News (18-3-2011)- "Child porn videos land man in court"
Andrew Mark Sheppeard used his work computer to download more than a dozen videos of child pornography. His searches for adult pornography landed him in trouble when he started to uncover illegal videos. Sheppeard pleaded guilty yesterday in Maroochydore Magistrates Court to seven counts of using the Internet to access child pornography, a charge with a maximum penalty of 10 years in jail. The court heard Sheppeard first searched the words “sex” and “porn” to find adult videos. He noticed a lot of files included the acronym “PTHC”, which he began using to search for more videos. He said he did not know the acronym stood for “pre teen hard core”. Police raided the Sunshine Coast business Sheppeard worked for on September 11, 2009 and a forensic analyst found 14 videos of child pornography that had been deleted from his computer. Sheppeard said some videos were of children as young as five but as soon as he opened it he would delete it. Magistrate Bernadette Callaghan said Sheppeard's crime was “serious” and “despicable”. “The fact that you've just accessed it (child pornography) through the Internet doesn't make it a victimless crime,” Ms Callaghan said. Sheppeard was sentenced to nine months imprisonment with immediate release and placed on a two year good Behaviour bond.

Offence/Other: Shiel was a member of the infamous Robert "Dolly" Dunn paedophile ring. Pleaded guilty to 54 charges committed between 1978 and 2007, including indecent assault, being an accessory to indecent assault, and 23 charges of buggery. Victims were boys aged between 10 and 15 yrs.

"Notorious paedophile jailed" - (17-11-2011) One of the state’s most notorious paedophiles, who repeatedly raped boys as young as 10 before passing them on to other men, has been sentenced to at least 11 years in behind bars. John Thomas Shiel, a member of the infamous Robert "Dolly" Dunn paedophile ring, cunningly and systematically ensnared six young boys, building up trust with them and their families before sexually assaulting them. The court heard that Shiel, 62, targeted boys whose families were in financial difficulty or had suffered a recent tragedy, including three young brothers whose father was struggling to look after them because their mother had just died. He would approach them at suburban Sydney swimming pools or fetes, often using his existing victims to draw them in, and then shower them with gifts and activities that their families would never be able to afford, such as trips to theme parks and motorcycle speedways. Having cleverly won the trust of the victims and their families families Shiel would offer to look after them for a weekend, or take them away for a "holiday" at surfer’s paradise. During these trips he would rape the boys and then, as the months progressed, prostitute them to the other members of the paedophile ring, such as Robert "Dolly" Dunn and the Northbridge property developer Mitchell Fox, who has pleaded guilty to seven charges. The boys were instructed about how to behave around the other members of the ring, and to help Shiel ensnare other young victims that appealed to his tastes.

"Convicted pedophile linked to minister's sister" (2-11-2006)
A convicted pedophile who worked in numerous Aboriginal communities across central Australia lived at an outback station run by the sister of Indigenous Affairs Minister Mal Brough. Police are investigating whether Geoffrey Kenneth Siggs, 61, was part of any organised pedophile rings that Mr Brough earlier this year claimed were operating throughout remote indigenous communities. Mr Brough has confirmed that Siggs had lived at Morapoi station, in the West Australian Goldfields, for three months in 2003. Morapoi is run by his sister, Carol, and her husband, Pastor Greg Stubbs. The Stubbses are committed Christians and are involved in numerous church groups, as was Siggs, the son of a missionary who grew up at Warburton in the Great Victorian Desert. Siggs was arrested three weeks ago at the remote Aboriginal outpost of Kiwirrkurra, where he was living with a couple and running the community store. He has since pleaded guilty to one child pornography charge and is now in custody. That charge relates to a laptop and computer disc seized from him in 2003, which contained 337 images of child pornography downloaded from the internet. Another two computers have been seized from Siggs but it may take police up to 18 months to download material from them. Kalgoorlie detective Simon Nichols said although police had not seen any pictures of Aboriginal children, they were not ruling out the possibility that Siggs had assaulted or photographed indigenous children. "During our interview with him, he said that if there were images of Aboriginal children on them (the seized computers), they would be in their natural state, sort of innocent pictures of kids," Detective Nichols said. "We'll just have to wait and see. We will not hesitate in laying further charges should that material be of interest to us when we see it." He said detectives had yet to uncover any evidence suggesting Siggs was part of an outback pedophile ring but would continue to examine all aspects of the case. Mr Brough told The Australian that Siggs had spent three months at the station three years ago. "Apparently this bloke was waiting to get a permit to get into the Central Desert and asked if he could stay. He was tied up with some sort of Bible college," Mr Brough said. "They (Greg and Carol Stubbs) bumped into him some time later in Warburton. They told me they had read something in the local paper about him. "I've never heard of him." Siggs has worked in various Aboriginal communities in Western Australia, South Australia, the Northern Territory and NSW. When working as a property supervisor at Bimbadeen College in Cootamundra in 1999, Siggs was publicly thanked by the Aboriginal Evangelical Fellowship for his hard work in one fellowship newsletter. He has lived and worked at Fitzroy Crossing, Warburton, Blackstone and Nyapari in South Australia. Siggs will remain in custody until he is sentenced in January.

News (9-5-2012)- "Carer abuses position of trust"-
A taxi driver who signed up to care for a severely disabled woman he just met before abusing her has been jailed, with the organisation that facilitated the arrangement admitting to "poor judgement". George James Simpson, 64, began a seven-month relationship with the 25-year-old woman, who has Asperger's syndrome, autism, epilepsy and an intellectual impairment in May 2006. Simpson met the woman when she ordered a cab outside Townsville Hospital on May 3, 2006 and she told him she had nowhere to go. He took the girl to the Disability Services Queensland department the following day, before signing an official agreement with Life Without Barriers to become her carer. He then moved her into his one-bedroom unit. Simpson was jailed after being found guilty in the Townsville District Court yesterday of six charges of indecent dealing with an intellectually impaired person under care, one of permitting an intellectually impaired person to indecent dealing and common assault. Life Without Barriers state director Scott Bray told the Bulletin the organisation exercised "poor judgement". "We sincerely regret the impact this has had on the woman involved," he said. Mr Bray said the organisation conducted personal history checks required by the Department of Child Safety at the time, including a criminal record check, all of which were cleared by the department. "Notwithstanding, it is clear that our policies and procedures were not properly implemented in this case and we deeply regret the impact of that poor practice," he said. "We sincerely apologise for our role in this matter." Judge Stuart Durward SC said he found the organisation's decision "pretty extraordinary" when sentencing the man. "I would have thought that arrangement would have cried out for investigation," he said. "It's a one-bedroom flat." Simpson was given a jail sentence of three years, to serve six months with an operational period of three years.

Update- News (17-11-2010)- "Rapist flown back to Launceston in handcuffs"-
Convicted rapist Mark Andrew Sinclair was yesterday escorted through Launceston Airport in handcuffs after being extradited from South Australia. The former Ravenswood resident, 35, was accompanied by Launceston detectives Darren Turner and Jason Savage, who flew to Adelaide on Monday to pick up the gym instructor. Sinclair is alleged to have breached his parole by leaving Tasmania in March. He was released from prison in September last year after serving eight years for a rampage that saw him attack three women in less than three hours in February 2002. Then 27, he first grabbed a young woman and dragged her backwards through Yorktown Square, then attacked a 65-year-old woman at Newstead with a one-metre piece of wood, before raping a severely disabled woman, also at Newstead. In between the attacks he was discovered outside a girls' dormitory at the Scotch Oakburn College boarding house but fled after he was confronted. It is understood Sinclair's parole conditions banned him from leaving Tasmania and he allegedly did so despite being refused permission to move to South Australia. It is also understood he has a child in South Australia and had become a grandfather, which prompted his decision to leave. After walking Sinclair through Launceston Airport to a waiting police car yesterday, detective senior constables Turner and Savage confirmed Sinclair had not opposed extradition in an Adelaide court yesterday. "He understands he has done the wrong thing and appears to want to serve out the rest of his sentence so he can get on with his life," Detective Senior Constable Turner said. Sinclair will be released later next year.

A jury has found a Perth taxi driver guilty of raping a young drunk woman in his taxi but cleared his driver friend of similar charges. When it came time to go to the cells, he started sobbing and squealing, and he had to be forced out of the court.

M/F
Name: DARREN LEIGH SKIPSEY (QLD- Woombye)
Age:
Sentence: Served 9 yrs of a 10-yr jail sentence for repeatedly raping a female jogger in 2001.

Offence/Other: Rapist. The judge described the 2001 sexual assault as "a callous and brutal" attack which was "disgusting and degrading".

News (12-1-2012)- "Rapist 'stole' woman's security"
She was sleeping on the top bunk inside an annex at a Mooloolaba caravan park her family had holidayed in for 40 years. The 25-year-old woke to a man touching her on the shoulder. She thought it was her father. When her eyes adjusted to the 4am light, she saw a stranger's "scary face" instead. Darren Leigh Skipsey placed a finger over his mouth and whispered "shhhhhh". The woman screamed, waking her boyfriend in the bottom bunk and her father inside the van. Skipsey, of Woombye, pleaded guilty in Maroochydore Magistrates Court yesterday to entering the premises with intent to steal money and assault on December 30. Police prosecutor Tanya Fitz Gerald said Skipsey had served nine years of a 10-year jail sentence for repeatedly raping a jogger in a "callous and brutal" attack in 2001. "The effect on the victim and that family was profound. It devastated her life," she said. Sergeant Fitz Gerald said the latest offences occurred six months after Skipsey's parole restrictions ended. She said the woman had visited the caravan park every one of her 25 years but had already changed her behaviour. "She's now not prepared to sleep in (the annex), she's now sleeping in the van. She is not even prepared to go to the toilet on her own. "In one night's incident, her whole life's changed. "Though the charge is enter to steal, (he) stole a lot more that night ... this woman's feeling of safety." Barrister David Crews said it was not a sexual offence and Skipsey should not be punished as if it was. He said his client went on a six-day bender and needed money. "He was in the annex looking for money," he said. "He didn't kiss her, he didn't touch her inappropriately, he touched her on the arm." Mr Crews said Skipsey accepted that he needed supervision after being thrown back into the community where there were many "temptations" like alcohol. "This is a slip-up because he was not properly reintegrated into the community," he said. Magistrate Bernadette Callaghan questioned whether better supervision and reintegration would have prevented another family suffering from this man's actions. Skipsey must serve three months of a nine-month jail term and two years of probation. Because he has already served 12 days, he will be released on parole on March 30.
BRUTAL HISTORY- April 29, 2001 - A woman was on a 6am jog when she helped a "lost" Darren Skipsey with directions. He drove off and lay in wait down the road, pretending he had car trouble, before he put a knife to her throat. He took her to a Nambour home and raped her nine times. The woman thought she was going to die. The judge described it as "a callous and brutal" attack which was "disgusting and degrading". He declared Skipsey a serious violent offender who must serve 80% of a 10-year sentence.

Offence/Other: Luke Skuthorpe- Pleaded guilty to aggravated sexual assault..Skuthorpe and another man raped a 14 yr old girl on the Newcastle Foreshore on 1-1-2012.

Man jailed for rape of teenager (31-1-2013)
A man who raped a 14-year-old girl on the Newcastle Foreshore with another man was jailed for more than seven years yesterday while his accomplice remains on the run. Luke Skuthorpe, 26, had been released on parole only two weeks before he lured the girl from Newcastle train station on January 1, 2012, to an area near Customs House, Judge Peter Berman said. The girl was so drunk she could barely stand, but she tried to stop Skuthorpe from kissing and fondling her, the court heard. He led her to an area in the park, put her on the ground and removed some of her clothes while she resisted. He and the other man raped the girl telling her, ‘‘You love this, you’re loving this’’, before leaving her lying on the ground. She eventually found her clothes and got help before attending John Hunter Hospital. Skuthorpe, formerly of Newcastle, was arrested last March and initially denied having sex with the girl. When police told him they had extracted his DNA from the girl he admitted performing an act on her, but when informed they had extracted his semen from the girl he still maintained he hadn’t had sex with her. Skuthorpe waited until the day of his trial to plead guilty to aggravated sexual assault. Judge Berman jailed him for seven years and six months with a non-parole period of five years. Skuthorpe will be eligible for parole in March 2017. Skuthorpe was given a discount on his sentence for telling Newcastle District Court how the other man took part in the rape.

News (8-3-2010)- A BENDIGO man charged with serious child sex offences including making child pornography with a minor has failed in his bid to have his name suppressed. Michael Peter Smart, 34, was arrested last Thursday morning after police searched his East Bendigo home. He has since been charged with sexual penetration of a child under 16, making and producing child pornography, possessing child pornography, procuring a child to make child pornography and blackmail. Police allege the offences relate to the sexual assault of a young girl during the past five years. They say more charges are expected to be laid. “We believe there are more victims out there who will come forward,” a police spokesman said. In an out-of-court hearing before a bail justice on Thursday night, Smart, a former train conductor, was denied bail. He appeared via video-link in the Bendigo Magistrates Court yesterday morning. Smart was not required to enter a plea and no application for bail was made. During the brief hearing, defence lawyer Luke Docherty asked the court to grant a suppression order prohibiting the media from publishing his client’s name and employment details. He said if made public it could bring undue stress and embarrassment to the victim as well as Smart’s family. The prosecution opposed the suppression order. Leading Senior Constable Jeff Lavery said the public should be made aware of such court proceedings, particularly if there are other victims involved. “Police may need the assistance of the media to track down further victims.” The suppression order was not granted and Magistrate Richard Wright remanded Smart in custody. The 34-year-old is scheduled to return to court on May 26 for a committal mention hearing. Anyone with information on the case should contact Bendigo Police Station on 5448 1300, or Crime Stoppers in 1800 333 000. Calls can be made anonymously.

Sentence: Sentenced to a 7 month jail term, but jail term suspended under what is known as a "Griffiths Remand".
Offence/Other: Pleaded guilty to 19 counts of engaging in indecent filming, and two counts of attempting to distribute indecent material.

News (23-12-2010)- "Hidden camera photographed female shoppers in Rundle Mall"-
A man who took "up-skirt" photos of Rundle Mall shoppers with a hidden camera has 12 months to prove he deserves a suspended sentence. William Smiley will not have to go to jail if he can show, by December 2011, he has changed his "dreadful" attitude toward women. Smiley, 40, of Elizabeth North, pleaded guilty to 19 counts of engaging in indecent filming, and two counts of attempting to distribute indecent material. In June, he took video and still images up the skirts of women in Rundle Mall. He stood next to his victims and put his bag on the ground - it contained a hidden camera. Smiley then attempted to sell the images online. Today Lisa Schutz, for Smiley, said her client "demonstrated a capacity to recognise" the wrongness of his actions, thanks to counselling. She said the case had parallels with the ongoing St Kilda nude footballers controversy. "My client has been charged under what are fairly new laws that don't appear to exist interstate," she said. "What the (football case) girl has done would be an offence in this jurisdiction." Jackie Young, prosecuting, said Smiley's victims would have been shamed had he sold the footage. "This was an affront to the modesty of the victims," she said. "Legislators in SA have been quite forward in recognising this." Magistrate Mary-Louise Hribal agreed. "Initially, your view was that you were not hurting anyone, but this was a dreadful invasion of privacy," she told Smiley. "Your attitude toward women was truly dreadful. "You now realise this crime is not victimless, that you invaded these women's privacy, and that it was totally unacceptable." She imposed a seven-month jail term, but suspended its activation under what is known as a "Griffiths Remand". The sentencing option gives offenders an opportunity to rehabilitate while living under strict bail conditions. Ms Hribal ordered Smiley undergo sex offender treatment and counselling and return to court in December 2011. "Should you engage fully and participate in the treatment programs, and there is no like offending during the remand, I'm likely to suspend your sentence," she said.

The release from prison of a man who murdered a Tasmanian schoolgirl has been met with anger and disbelief by the victim's parents. The parents of murdered north-west schoolgirl Janine Cunningham were telephoned yesterday by the victims assistant unit and told Alan Smith has been released on parole. Smith was convicted of murdering Janine Cunningham in 1975. Late last year the parole board was given a petition with 6,800 signatures requesting Smith remain in custody. Janine's mother,says she does not know where Smith is now or where he will be living. "That's completely wrong," she said. "He knows where we live - why shouldn't we know where he is?

News (7-4-2000)
Burnie parents Dorothy and Barry Cunningham last night presented a petition containing more than 6200 signatures to State Parliament in a bid to keep their daughter's killer behind bars. The couple sat in the House of Assembly public gallery as Attorney-General Peter Patmore accepted the petition calling for convicted murderer Alan John Smith to serve out his life sentence. Smith was sentenced to prison for the term of his natural life 26 years ago for the murder and sexual assault of seven-year-old Burnie girl Janine Cunningham. But Justice Pierre Slicer ruled in 1997 that Smith would be eligible for parole on December 4, 2000. Mrs Cunningham said that it was an important moment for her and her husband, but she was not confident about what would happen next. "I think his (Smith's) application for parole should be given the same consideration as he gave Janine when she cried out to her mother before he killed her,'' she said. "I think that if you're sent to jail for the term of your natural life, you should stay there and never come out. "We shouldn't have to be fighting after all these years to keep him in jail you shouldn't have to worry about it." Mr Patmore said that he expressed deep sympathy for the Cunninghams, saying that the petition would be forwarded to the Parole Board for consideration when Smith's case was heard in December. "I have no doubt that I would feel the same as you do now if it was my child,'' Mr Patmore said. Braddon Labor MHA Steve Kons said that he would pray that the Parole Board would take into account the community's expectations. "I believe the judiciary is out of touch with community expectations. They are not part of mainstream Australia, which expects community standards to be upheld," Mr Kons said. "I hope the Parole Board has the wisdom to keep Smith inside."

News (20-12-2012)- "Rapist Gregory James Smith jailed for 14 years for crime committed in 1989"
A cowardly rapist has finally been jailed, 23 years after abducting a woman described by a judge as "resourceful and courageous". Gregory James Smith, 52, was today sentenced to 14 years' jail with a non-parole period of seven years and six months. In November 1989, Smith and James Trevor Birmingham approached a woman walking to the YMCA on Flinders St. They forced her into a car and drove her to the Adelaide Hills where they raped her repeatedly. Smith was charged with abduction and eight counts of rape after a DNA sample was taken in 2010. In February, Birmingham, 52, was jailed for 10 years and his existing non-parole period - for another rape and a fatal road-rage crash - was extended by four years. Today, District Court Judge David Lovell said he had found Smith's version of events to be "totally unbelievable". He said Smith's actions were "contemptible and cowardly" and his conduct during the trial was the same. "You have shown no contrition or remorse," he said. Judge Lovell described the victim as a "remarkable, resourceful and courageous woman" who continues to worry about whether she should have done more to fight off her rapists.

A man who raped a sleeping woman on a train in a daylight attack will spend at least three years behind bars. Leon Graham Smith, 54, sat opposite the sleeping woman and waited for an opportunity to assault her, despite the presence of other passengers and security cameras. The victim, who was returning home after a night of partying, woke to feel Smith's hands under her skirt. Judge Joe Gullaci said Smith had deliberately attacked a defenceless victim and left her traumatised as a result. "You behaved as a predator who saw an opportunity to attack a sleeping, vulnerable woman and waited for an opportunity to rape her," Judge Gullaci said. "Young, vulnerable women or anyone in the community should be able to travel on trains or public transport without fear that people like you are lurking, waiting for the opportunity to rape or sexually assault them."

News (7-5-2012)- "Serial flasher free from jail after pleading guilty"
Region - A serial flasher who masturbated in front of young children in a park and showed pornography to a six-year-old girl in Ararat has been released from prison. Having already served 210 days in custody, Michael John Smith, 55, was yesterday sentenced to an 18 month community corrections order with no additional jail time. He was also ordered to undertake a sex offenders program, and will remain on the Sex Offenders Register for life. Smith pleaded guilty to 16 charges in Ballarat Magistrates Court, including committing an indecent act with a child under 16 and seven counts of wilful and obscene exposure. Among the string of offences, on November 9 last year Smith approached a mother and young children in the Smythesdale Gardens and masturbated in their direction. He then went to a bus shelter on the Glenelg Highway, where he again exposed himself and masturbated, this time while facing passing traffic. Smith then returned to the gardens where he exposed himself to another mother, who was with three children under the age of four. After the woman told him to get dressed, Smith went away and returned completely naked and masturbating about five metres away from them. Later that day police intercepted Smith on the Glenelg Highway. When they searched his car they found several sex toys, condoms, lubricant, pornographic DVDs and a length of rope. During the police interview Smith admitted several other recent flashing incidents including at the McDonalds drive-through in Sturt Street, and at McDonalds and Blockbuster Video in Sebastopol. Crown Prosecutor Alex Patton also said that on an earlier occasion when Smith was staying at the Ararat Hotel, he sat down with a six-year-old girl and played her a pornographic movie on his portable DVD player. Following a delay in a Corrections assessment, defence lawyer Patrick Bourke urged the court to release his client, saying he had already spent more time in custody than he was likely to be sentenced too. “It just ought to have been done, it’s a simple as that,” Mr Bourke said. Magistrate Richard Pithouse said he too was frustrated by the delay Smith had endured.

News (17-2-2011)- "Offender sexually assaulted 13-year-old girl Slit throat: guilty plea"-
A man who slit a 13-year-old girl's throat before sexually assaulting her at a Jesmond shopping centre pleaded guilty to attempted murder yesterday. When police informed Peter Kevin Smith of his victim's age, Smith replied: "Was she really only 13 . . .? That's f---Ed," a police statement said. The girl suffered a 12-centimetre cut to her throat, but was not expected to experience any long-term problems with the wound, the statement said. Smith, 25, whose address was given as both Maitland and Muswellbrook, pleaded guilty in Newcastle Local Court to attempted murder, aggravated sexual assault and armed robbery. He will face Newcastle District Court next week when a sentence date will be set. Several hours before he attacked the girl on October 17 last year, Smith held a knife to a woman's throat in the underground car park of Maitland District Leagues Club while she was getting her baby daughter out of a car. Smith approached her from behind and yanked her head back by pulling her hair. He did so with such force that she fell, a police statement said. She was able to run away with her daughter in a pram while Smith searched her car and stole her handbag. He then travelled to Stockland Shopping Centre, Jesmond, where he forced the 13-year-old girl to the back of a shop and slit her throat with a carving knife. He then groped her breasts and put his hand in her pants and sexually assaulted her. The girl told police she thought she was going to die. She was able to escape with blood pouring down her. Smith was arrested at Telarah train station at 12.15am on October 18. http://www.theherald.com.au/news/local/news/general/offender-sexually-assaulted-13yearold-girl-slit-throat-guilty-plea/2078658.aspx

News (19-10-2010)- "No bail in alleged knifing, sexual assault and robbery"-
Within just nine minutes, a man is alleged to have attacked and tried to kill a teenage girl in a Jesmond shopping centre, sexually assaulting her before slashing her throat with a knife so badly it damaged her trachea. Court papers state that the 13-year-old victim was attacked at the Blue Gum Road centre between 5.11pm and 5.20pm on Sunday – less than seven hours after the same man is accused of threatening a woman with a knife while she was strapping her baby into a pram in a Maitland car park. The girl had surgery and remained in John Hunter Children’s Hospital last night, where her condition was not being released, although medical staff have told police the injuries to her throat had damaged her trachea and were millimetres from causing major damage. Peter Smith, a 25-year-old whose address was listed in court papers only as being at Maitland, faces six charges relating to the separate attacks including the attempted murder and aggravated sexual assault of the teenager. Barefoot and wearing plastic white overalls, Mr Smith spent less than three minutes in the dock of Maitland Local Court yesterday before being led away by Department of Corrective Services officers. He did not enter pleas nor apply for bail, which was formally refused by magistrate Ellen Skinner. Police allege Mr Smith approached a woman in the Maitland District Leagues Club car park as she was strapping her child in a pram on Sunday morning. He allegedly stole her handbag and attempted to drive off in her car before fleeing. He faces four charges including an attempted carjacking count, use or possess or attempt to threaten to use an offensive weapon and two dishonesty counts relating to stealing the handbag and trying to withdraw money using a stolen keycard. Mr Smith is then alleged to have attacked the girl later that day. He was arrested at Telarah railway station about 12.10am yesterday before being charged. He will face Newcastle Local Court on December 15.

Sentence: Sentenced 12-7-2012, in the Geelong Magistrates Court, to an 18 month Community Corrections Order.

Offence/Other: Christian Sorensen- Pleaded guilty to possessing child pornography.

Umpire on sex offenders' list- (13-7-2012)
A GEELONG football umpire, found in possession of hundreds of images of child pornography, has been placed on the sex offenders register for eight years. Christian Sorensen, 26, pleaded guilty in Geelong Magistrates' Court yesterday to a single charge of possessing child pornography. Police prosecutor Leading Senior Constable David Vanderpol said that, on August 30 last year, police executed a search warrant on a Geelong property and seized computer equipment belonging to Sorensen. He said analysis of the equipment revealed 256 images and 80 movie titles containing children, some as young as four, involved in sexually explicit acts with adults. Sen-Constable Vanderpol said that, on September 2, 2011, Sorensen attended Geelong Police Station of his own volition and admitted downloading the images and movie files from a recognised child pornography site between April 19 and May 19, 2011. The prosecutor said police were alerted to Sorensen's activities as part of an extensive, ongoing investigation into child pornography. David Risstrom, for Sorensen, said his client had psychological issues which were now being addressed. Mr Risstrom said Sorensen, a local football umpire, had been working with kids for 11 years, but would no longer be able to do so. "He has now confined his umpiring to seniors and reserves games and hopes to continue working with adults," Mr Risstrom said. "He has no priors and no matters pending." Mr Risstrom asked the court to allow Sorensen to continue his psychiatric treatment through the imposition of a Community Corrections Order. Magistrate Stephen Myall said he accepted the contents of the psychiatric report. Sorensen was convicted and placed on a Community Corrections Order for 18 months and directed to undergo assessment and treatment for psychiatric issues and to reduce offending. He was also placed on the Sex Offenders Register for eight years and computer equipment seized by police was ordered forfeited to the Crown.

News (26-3-2012)- "Worst criminals able to reoffend"-
SOME of Tasmania's worst criminals are reoffending after the court refuses to declare them dangerous criminals a classification that gives judges the power to jail them indefinitely. There are seven declared dangerous criminals in Tasmania, being mostly child abusers and serial rapists. Beyond Abuse spokesman Steve Fisher said it appeared either the Director of Public Prosecutions was not making enough dangerous prisoner applications to the court or the court was rejecting too many. The Supreme Court in 2003 refused a prosecution application to declare child sex abuser Anthony John Minney, of Launceston, a dangerous criminal, yet he was jailed last September for 14 months after pleading guilty to loitering near children. Minney has a long history of sexually assaulting children and last year asked police to send him to prison. In 2003 Justice Ewan Crawford said Minney's child sex abuse case was ``not sufficiently exceptional'' to justify making a dangerous criminal order. "Seven people (declared dangerous) across the whole of Tasmania does not seem to indicate they are using the tool at their disposal enough, '' Mr Fisher said. "The dangerous criminal register was brought in to serve a purpose and that's to do exactly that to keep them off the street.'' Late last year convicted serial rapist Kevin Richard Bell failed in his bid to have his dangerous criminal order overturned. Bell was sentenced to 12 years' jail in 1991 for six rapes, one indecent assault and four counts of defilement of a young girl. Six months after being paroled in 1998, he committed sex offences against children aged three and 16. Rocherlea man Brendan James Freeman was declared a dangerous criminal in 2004 and sentenced to seven years' jail after admitting to raping and bashing a woman in Launceston. Colin John Sparkes (1997) was also placed on the list after being convicted of burglary with intent to rape. Other criminals the DPP has applied to have placed on the dangerous criminal register include Ian John Brumby (2002) who had committed assault, robbery and rape, and serial rapist Paul Vincent Phillips (1998). -Read More-

Age: 69 yrs old (2012)
Sentence: Sentenced to 9 yrs jail - 5 yrs non parole/ will be eligible for parole in November 2015..full sentence to expire on November 29, 2019.

Offence/Other: Brian Spillane - Former Catholic priest - Convicted of 8 charges of indecent assault on a female younger than 16, and one count of indecently assaulting a female aged 16 years or more.. The charges relate to abuses during the 1970s and 1980s when Spillane was a priest working in both Sydney and country areas of New South Wales.

"Priest 'a violent bully and coward'" (20-4-2012)
The former priest Brian Spillane has been sentenced to nine years' imprisonment for a series of sexual assaults on young girls - attacks described as "serious, planned and callous" by Judge Michael Finnane of the NSW District Court. "The offender used his position as a priest to gain access to the homes in which each of his victims lived," said the judge. "He was very trusted and the parents of each of the victims readily gave him access to their daughters because of that trust and the esteem in which he was held." The assaults began in the late 1970s when Spillane was on the staff of St Stanislaus College, a boys' boarding school in Bathurst. They continued when he became a parish priest in Sydney. He later returned to St Stanislaus as school chaplain. Spillane, 69, continues to deny all the charges that have been brought against him, not only those involving these young girls but some 100 charges he has yet to face relating to assaults on boys at the school. A heavy-set redhead, Spillane trained for the priesthood in the Vincentian Order and was sent to teach at St Stanislaus in the late 1960s. At his trial he described himself as a modern priest - joyful and enthusiastic, a hugger and kisser, a man at ease with families and their children. In the late 1970s, he ingratiated himself into a family with boys at the school and abused their sister, then aged 11. "This was the conduct of a violent bully and coward, done without regard to the effect it would have on the young girl," Judge Finnane said at sentencing. "It was sexual abuse carried out by a trusted priest, and was a major breach of trust." The Vincentians posted Spillane to Sydney in the late 1970s and for a time he was acting parish priest at St Anthony's Marsfield. There he befriended another devout Catholic family and, under the guise of hearing their daughters' bedtime prayers, abused both for more than a year. The judge called this: "Predatory and a major abuse of trust." One of those victims, known as Miss M, told the court of the devastating impact on her life of Spillane's abuse: of guilt, panic, mistrust, anger, depression, estrangement, drinking, drugs, loss of interest in study and, now, fearfulness for her daughter. She said: "It changed my fate and all that I wanted to be." In those years in Sydney, Spillane also assaulted and wrote love letters to a 16-year-old student at a western suburbs Catholic school. Judge Finnane called the assault "predatory and heartless" and the letters "maudlin, full of false piety and completely inappropriate". Spillane left the priesthood in 2004 and a son was born after his marriage that year. The first complaints about him were made to Bathurst police three years later. He was charged in 2008 and convicted by a District Court jury in 2010. Sentencing was delayed until yesterday by the defence solicitor Greg Walsh attempting to have his old friend Judge Finnane disqualify himself from this and any future proceedings involving Spillane. Mr Walsh claimed that after the swearing-in of a new District Court judge in March last year, Judge Finnane remarked over a cup of tea that paedophiles were "all guilty" and "should be put on an island and starved to death". Judge Finnane denied saying those words and declined to disqualify himself. The dispute reached the NSW Court of Appeal in November and the decision upholding the judge's right to sit was delivered a fortnight ago. The court found the words, if uttered, might have been incautious but couldn't be taken seriously and would not be regarded by a fair-minded bystander as prejudging the former priest's position. Lawyers estimate about $700,000 has been spent on the former priest's defence so far. But who is footing that bill is a mystery. A spokeswoman for the Catholic Archbishop of Sydney, Cardinal Pell, says it is not the church. The Vincentian Order has refused to take the Herald's calls. At Spillane's sentencing, Judge Finnane spoke of receiving glowing testimonials to his good character. But, he added, "it has also to be said that he used his eminence in the community and his role as a priest to gain access to his victims and to carry out sexual offences on them." Miss M sobbed with relief when the judge sent her abuser to prison for nine years with a non-parole period of five.

"Priest jailed 5 years for sex assaults on young girls" (19-4-2012)
A former Catholic priest has been jailed for at least five years for sexually abusing girls as young as eight. Brian Spillane, 69, was convicted today of eight charges of indecent assault on a female younger than 16 and one count of indecently assaulting a female aged 16 years or more. The charges relate to abuses during the 1970s and 1980s when Spillane was a priest working in both Sydney and country areas of New South Wales. In sentencing Spillane, Judge Michael Finnane called each assault "serious, planned and callous". He said Spillane's position as a priest and his "standing in the community" allowed him to gain access to the homes of his victims, many of whom came from devout Catholic families. Some of the offences occurred when Spillane was alone with his victims in their bedrooms for night-time prayers. One happened in a car after he'd said mass at a memorial service. "He was very trusted and the parents of each of the victims readily gave him access to their daughters because of that trust and the esteem in which he was held," Judge Finnane told Sydney's Downing Centre District Court. "The victims in this trial were all girls to whom he got access when he was conducting parish missions or ... when he was visiting a country town. "It was sexual abuse carried out by a trusted priest and was a major breach of trust." The judge said Spillane had shown no remorse and no contrition for his offending "which means that there can be little hope of rehabilitation". But he noted Spillane's age and said in all other respects the former priest had lived a "blameless life". Taking into account time already served, Spillane will be eligible for parole in November 2015. His sentence will expire on November 29, 2019.

"Indecent carpark act leads to jail" (13-10-2012)
Shopping Centre carpark while in possession of videos and photos of women around Townsville has been jailed for one month. But Magistrate Laurie Verra didn't place any weight on the recorded images, pointing out it wasn't illegal and that police hadn't charged Srejic for it. Robert Srejic, 60, pleaded guilty to an indecent act in a public place in Townsville Magistrates Court yesterday. He was sentenced to one month's jail, with an 18-month probation order to be served afterwards. Srejic was spotted by a woman "sweating profusely" and watching her with his window wound down, while his hand moved rigorously in an up-and-down movement on September 22 this year. The woman had two young children with her, and immediately called the police. Srejic was arrested with a large hole in the front of his shorts, which he claimed not to have noticed when he put them on. Police prosecutor Senior Sergeant Mick Harms said Srejic denied to police that he was masturbating in the carpark. "The defendant said his arm motion was due to a rash caused from work as a machine operator," he said. "He said he was taking photos of women entering Willows Shopping Centre due to urges, and intended on uploading them." A forensic order found no traces of such a rash. Defence lawyer Steve Erickson said his client's ute was elevated, and the bottom half of his body would have been out of view. "He does not receive gratification out of people seeing him," he said. Magistrate Laurie Verra took into account that Srejic did not intend to be seen.

"No jail for dialing-up child pornography on demo phones in Telstra shop" (28-2-2013)
A man who used demonstration phones in a South Australian Telstra store to download child pornography - twice - has avoided an immediate prison term. District Court judge David Lovell said staff at the Noarlunga store had noticed Michael John Stam acting suspiciously while looking at sample phones in December 2011 "You were in the store for approximately 30 minutes and during this time you were observed by shop staff to be acting suspiciously while looking at demonstration phones," Judge Lovell said. "It was obvious to the staff that you did not want any attention because you would turn away from them when they approached you. You also were observed to be attempting to hide the phone with your hand." When Stam left the shop, staff checked the phones and discovered he had entered Google searches such as "nude naked boys". "They further discovered that you downloaded images of young children particularly an image of a young boy splashing in water and an image of a young female posing in a provocative manner," Judge Lovell said. Stam, 38, returned to the store in February 2011 and was recognised by staff, who called police. Police observed Stam accessing a black and white image of two young boys and arrested him. A search of Stam's home revealed another 18 images on mobile phones of nude children under the age of 14. The offences breached an earlier good behaviour bond for offences involving abusive and sexual phone messages to his former employer and wife. Judge Lovell said Stam had been diagnosed with listening and learning disabilities in school, where he was often bullied and teased. He said Stam was on a disability support pension and have never been involved in a relationship. "Although you admit what you did was inappropriate, you fail to understand why and this is of concern to the court," Judge Lovell said. "I have been told and accept that you are a vulnerable individual in the community and would even be more vulnerable in the prison environment. You would not cope well with the prison environment due to your lack of understanding of social behaviour." Judge Lovell sentenced Stam to six months' prison but suspended the sentence on conditions including he undergo counselling and be of good behaviour for 12 months.

"Porn offender lacked awareness, court told" (12-2-2013)
A court has been told a man lacked awareness why it was wrong to download child pornography and do so in a retail store. In the Adelaide District Court, Michael John Stam, 38, of Christies Beach pleaded guilty to offences, including aggravated counts of accessing and possessing child pornography. Prosecutors said Stam used a mobile phone in a Telstra shop to download the pornography, two years ago. Judge David Lovell expressed concern psychological assessments indicated Stam lacked insight into his offending. He feared the man might pose a community risk. "I don't think it's a case where a short custodial sentence will teach him a lesson, so to speak, that's the difficulty," the judge said. "The comforting thing for me and perhaps for the DPP is that, whilst he has been under supervision [on bail], there have been no allegations of further problems." Prosecutor Dominic Petraccaro agreed. "Yes, it's been two years and there has been no suggestion of him even attempting to access this sort of material again," he said. "In terms of accessing child pornography in the Telstra shop using their phone, he was always going to get caught." Stam's lawyer Oliver Koehn said his client could be at risk in prison. "He is a quite intellectually-disabled person who can mutter the right responses but when it comes down to it, doesn't understand," he told the court. "He is going to be a very vulnerable person in the prison environment and will be exposed to bullying and harassment to a degree that other prisoners wouldn't. "This man is not completely unaware that what he did was wrong. What he is unaware of is why it is wrong." The prosecution said any bond would require Stam was supervised to ensure he was rehabilitated. He will be sentenced in a fortnight.

Name:
PAUL ANDREW STANBROOK (Paul Stanbrook) (QLD - Hermit Park)
Age: 43 yrs old (2010)
Sentence: Sentenced in 1993 to 12 yrs jail - 10 yrs non parole..Sentenced in the Townsville District Court, to 5 yrs jail in 2008 - due for release in June 2013.
Offence/Other: Paul Andrew stanbrook- Drugged and sexually assaulted a young woman in 2008/ found guilty of drink spiking and 5 counts of indecent treatment of a woman..Prior history - Bashed/ sexually assaulted and cut the throat of a 17 yr old schoolgirl in Wodonga in 1991.


"Rapist fights dangerous sex offender order" (26-2-2013)
A convicted rapist who drugged and sexually assaulted a young woman is arguing he should not be listed as a dangerous sexual offender because his crime was not violent. In June Paul Andrew Stanbrook is due for release from a five year jail sentence. He had been found guilty of drugging a 23-year-old with antidepressants and alcohol and inappropriately touching her while she lay awake but unable to move. The Attorney-General has applied for Stanbrook to be placed under a Dangerous Prisoners (Sexual Offenders') order on his release date, which could mean his jail term is extended or he is released into the community under a supervision order. The conditions of the supervision order could range from him being electronically monitored to having curfews and random drug and alcohol tests. Stanbrook is trying to fight the order, arguing he is not serving a prison term for a serious sexual offence because his crime was not violent. When Stanbrook was 42 years old, he became acquainted with the young woman and they swapped phone numbers after running into each other on July 21, 2008. He and his wife invited the woman over to watch a DVD that night, and Stanbrook gave her a drink which he said was alcohol and milk, but in fact was laced with the anti-depressant Endep. The woman sipped half of the drink over two hours and Stanbrook topped it up. After another couple of sips the woman fell asleep. The man then began touching her. "The victim woke but was unable to open her eyes and yet was aware of what the respondent and his wife were doing," the Supreme Court judgment said. Stanbrook moved the woman from the living room to the bedroom and repeatedly tried to put his hand between the victim's legs, but was unable to. The judgment said the woman was "distressed at her own helplessness" and since the assault had been prescribed anti-depressants. She was also unable to form a lasting relationship because she did not trust anyone. Supreme Court Judge Debbie Mullins has found there are reasonable grounds for Stanbrook to be classified as a dangerous sexual offender and has ordered he be evaluated by two psychiatrists. An application for the order will be heard on June 17. In her decision, Judge Mullins took into account Stanbrook's previous offences, which included the rape and assault of a 17-year-old school girl in Victoria in 1991. He saw the girl walking home from school and grabbed her from behind, taking her to a secluded spot where he raped and cut her throat with a small knife. He served 10 years for the crime and turned down numerous offers to take part in sexual offender rehabilitation programs.

"Drink spiker also convicted rapist" (14-4-2010)
The man who lured a woman to his flat, drugged her by spiking her drink and then indecently as saulted her over several hours had served a lengthy jail term in Victoria for rape and attempted murder. A Townsville District Court jury took less than two hours to find Paul Andrew Stanbrook, 43, guilty of drink spiking and five counts of indecent treatment of a woman at his Hermit Park flat in 2008. Stanbrook had encouraged his intellectually impaired wife to take part in the fondling assaults on the woman. The jury heard that in July 2008, Stanbrook and his wife invited the woman, whom they had known for about three years, to come to their Hermit Park home and watch DVDs with them. The two women started to watch television while Mr Stanbrook went to the kitchen and mixed them drinks. The woman later said she had just been sipping hers, and when offered another one, said she didn't want to drink too much because she was pregnant. Nevertheless, Mr Stanbrook took the drink away and topped it up. The woman later said she had taken a couple of sips and the drink then ''tasted funny'' and she soon started feeling faint. The victim said she was unable to open her eyes or talk, and was unable to do anything when she felt the belt from her jeans being removed and Mandy Stanbrook telling her husband to take off her jeans. Her breasts and pubic area were then touched by the couple, before she was carried into the bedroom. She was put on the waterbed and then joined by the couple, one either side of her, and the fondling continued until all three fell asleep. The woman later woke up and went home. Later that day, after telling her parents what had happened, she went to the police where she gave a statement, and blood and urine samples. One of the samples contained traces of the drug amitriptyline, a sedative which becomes more potent when mixed with alcohol. There was expert evidence that the chemical does not occur naturally in the human body and is only available by prescription. During a subsequent search of the Stanbrook home, police seized a container with traces of the drug and a container marked off for measuring. At sentencing yesterday afternoon, Crown prosecutor Kerri Fredericks told Judge Stuart Durward that Stanbrook had been convicted of rape and attempted murder in Victoria in November 1992, when he had assaulted a 17-year-old and then cut her throat, leaving her for dead. Judge Durward told Stanbrook he had shown no remorse and that the offending would have required premeditation. For the charge of stupefying in order to commit an indictable offence (in this case, drink spiking) Stanbrook was jailed for five years, and was given terms of 18 months and 12 months for the five other counts, with all terms to be served concurrently. Given the almost two years Stanbrook has already spent in custody awaiting trial, Judge Durward directed that he could apply for parole in January next year.

Name: DANIEL STANI-REGINALD (NSW)
Age: 21 yrs old (2013)
Sentence: Sentenced in May 2013, in the NSW Supreme Court, to 45 yrs jail - 30 yrs non parole..Eligible for release in 2041.

Offence/Other: Daniel Stani-Reginald - Murderer/Rapist.. In March 2011 Stani-Reginald raped and then used a cord to strangle to death Tosha Thakkar, 24, a neighbour in the Croydon boarding house where he lived.

"Body-bag murderer Daniel Stani-Reginald jailed for 45 years" (18-5-2013)
Daniel Stani-Reginald would have cut an unassuming figure - a casually dressed teenager hailing a cab with a bulging suitcase trailing behind him. And while the driver was curious why the bag he helped hoist into the boot was so heavy, the chatty 19-year-old explained it was simply full of electronics equipment. The Supreme Court heard yesterday the dark suitcase really contained the body of a young woman, the victim of a remorseless killer who spent his spare time schooling himself on society's most violent and depraved criminals. Stani-Reginald, 21, smirked and yawned through his sentencing as Justice Derek Price ordered him to spend up to 45 years behind bars for the "extraordinarily cruel" murder. In March 2011, the teenager violently raped then used a cord to strangle Indian accounting student Tosha Thakkar, 24, a neighbour in their Croydon boarding house. He stuffed her body into the large suitcase, bought from Target a month earlier, and caught the taxi to Meadowbank, where he tossed the bag into a canal. "The last minutes of her life must have been horrifying - this was a terrible way for (her) to die," Justice Price said. When police combed through Stani-Reginald's computer they found nearly 10,000 website visits from searches including backpacker killer Ivan Milat, US cult leader Charles Manson and Yorkshire Ripper Peter Sutcliffe. The day he bought the bag he pulled up an article on the 2007 murder of Sydney toddler Dean Shillingsworth, whose body was put in a suitcase and thrown in a duck pond. Justice Price said Stani-Reginald had shown "no capacity for empathy" and posed a high risk of committing serious sexual or violent crimes until his tendencies were "moderated naturally" in old age. Stani-Reginald showed no emotion as the judgement was handed down. Outside the court, Ms Thakkar's cousin Pritak said the victim was a "happy girl" whose mistake was to believe everyone was a good person. "We are disappointed with the sentence, we have lost Tosha forever ... so we were expecting a full, life sentence," he said. Mr Thakkar said it was impossible to describe the pain her parents were feeling after losing their only daughter. "They did not send her (to Australia) for this ... like everyone here, she wanted to be happy," he said. Stani-Reginald will be eligible for release in 2041.

"Teenager who raped, murdered and stuffed Indian student in a suitcase sentenced to 30 years in jail" (17-5-2013)
As a teenager, Daniel Stani-Reginald spent hours on the internet researching notorious serial killers and rapists. Today a judge sentenced the now 21-year-old to spend at least 30 years behind bars in their company for the vicious rape and murder of a young Indian student. Stani-Reginald periodically yawned and appeared to smirk this morning as Justice Derek Price told the Supreme Court his "terrible" crimes stopped short of deserving a life sentence. In March 2011, when he was aged only 19, Stani-Reginald raped and then used a cord to strangle to death Tosha Thakkar, 24, a neighbour in the Croydon boarding house where he lived. He then stuffed her body in a large suitcase he had bought from Target a month earlier and caught a taxi to Meadowbank, where he threw the bag in a canal. Workmen discovered Ms Thakkar’s corpse two days later and Stani-Reginald was arrested for the murder. When police searched his laptop they found nearly 10,000 links to articles and websites he accessed over the past four months, including searches on Charles Manson and Australian teen killer Matthew Milat. One newspaper article he viewed on the day he purchased the bag featured details on the 2007 murder of Sydney toddler Dean Shillingsworth, whose body was hidden in a suitcase and tossed in a duck pond. The morning of Ms Thakkar's murder her killer had searched for "choke hold" and also viewed pornography. Prosecutors had asked for Stani-Reginald to be handed a life sentence, arguing he had clearly decided to ``school himself’’ as a serial rapist and killer. Justice Price said the 21-year-old's strangulation of Ms Thakkar was "extraordinarily cruel" and he had shown no remorse, empathy or contrition for the pain he had inflicted. "The last moments of her life must have been horrifying - this was a terrible way for (her) to die," he said. But Justice Price said while Stani-Reginald's crimes were the worst imaginable of their types, he couldn't be sure he had planned to become a repeat murderer or sexual predator. He said there remained a high chance the killer would commit more crimes, but he didn't deserve to spend the rest of his young life in jail. "I am satisfied that there is a real risk that the offender will re-offend by committing serious offences of violence or sexual assault ... I do not make this finding lightly," he said. Stani-Reginald didn't react as he was sentenced to 45 years - with a minimum of 30 years - in prison. He will first be eligible for release in 2041.

(VIC- Langwarrin)
Age: 28 yrs old (2012)
Sentence: Sentenced 4-7-2012, in the Melbourne Magistrates' Court, to 20 months jail - 10 months non-parole.

News (4-7-2012)- "Fugitive couple sentenced after pleading guilty to child porn"
A fugitive couple who spent 21 days on the run after police raided their home last year have been sentenced after pleading guilty to child pornography charges. Craig Stanley, 28, and Rebecca Michels, 25, were arrested in Dimboola in November after a three-week police hunt for the pair. The couple fled after a police raid of their home sparked by a tip off from the US Federal Bureau of Investigation. At the Melbourne Magistrates' Court today Stanley was sentenced to 20 months in prison with a non-parole period of 10 months. Michels was placed on an 18-month community corrections order. It was alleged in court more than 80,000 pornographic images were uncovered during the raids. Of them more than 17,000 images and 531 videos depicting child pornography, including children as young as one-year-old, were found. Prosecutor Anne Hassan told the court some images showed Michels posing naked and semi-naked with a 10-year-old girl. The court heard Michels appeared naked alongside the girl in 10 images. Ms Hassan said it was believed the girl was as young as seven when the first naked photos of her were taken in 2009. It was alleged the girl's father and stepmother were also naked in some of the 279 images that were taken over a two-year period and showed close-up shots of the girl's genitals. The court heard the couples were nudists who met at a public pool. As a result of police inquiries the other couple are also facing charges. Michels, who is on bail, pleaded guilty to one count of making child porn. Her parents walked out of court as details of the charges were read out. Stanley, who is in custody, pleaded guilty to three charges including making, possessing and transmitting child porn. Other charges against the pair were dropped. Ms Hassan said the young girl told police Stanley and Michels were her "aunty and uncle'' and that her dad "doesn't do anything to hurt me''. She said the girl, who appeared "distressed'' during a police interview, was a "deeply exploitive child''. The court heard the girl was involved in a series of photo "sessions'' with one allegedly lasting up to five hours. Images depicting the girl were all deemed to be in a low category of child pornography, the court heard. But some images downloaded by Stanley included sadism and bestiality, it was alleged. Jim Dounias, for Stanley, said his client had been "immersed in pornography'' since the age of 13. "We don't blame Ms Michels for anything, we take full responsibility for everything,'' he said. Mr Dounias said while more than 17,000 images of child pornography were allegedly found on Stanley's computer, he had not viewed all the content. But Magistrate Jack Vandersteen questioned why it had been downloaded at all. "How do you download stuff and not look at it and not know what you're doing?'' he said.

News (4-7-2012)- "Fugitive couple Craig Stanley and Rebecca Michels admit making child pornography"
A former soldier who went on the run after police found thousands of depraved child porn images at his Melbourne home, including one of a baby being sexually abused, has pleaded guilty. Craig Stanley, 28, fled in October with his partner Rebecca Michels, 25, after a raid on their Langwarrin home in outer Melbourne led to the discovery of more than 17,000 child porn images. Police also found 279 images that Stanley had made involving a girl the couple met through being nudists, the Melbourne Magistrates Court was told on Wednesday. Michels has admitted making 10 images involving the same girl. Stanley has pleaded guilty to possessing 17,381 child porn images, to making child porn images and transmitting three images. Michels has admitted making child porn. Defence lawyer Jim Dounias said Stanley, a former soldier, was a nudist who had crossed the line and taken indecent photos of a girl. Magistrate Jack Vandersteen said there must have been an element of trust that was built up in the child before she participated in the photos. Mr Dounias said Stanley would be a registered sexual offender for life which would limit his work opportunities. Prosecutor Anne Hassan said the fact the identities of the children in the 17,381 images Stanley possessed were not known did not mean they were not victims. "These are real victims, real children," she said. Ms Hassan told the court among the 17,381 images found on electronic devices belonging to Stanley was one of a one-year-old baby being sexually abused. Michels will be assessed for a community corrections order, the court heard. Michels and Stanley fled to a remote bush campsite in Victoria, surviving on carp and baked beans and avoiding capture for 21 days until Michels tipped police off, a court previously heard. They were arrested in the Dimboola area in north-western Victoria. They are expected to be sentenced later on Wednesday.

Age: 51 yrs old (2013)
Sentence: Sentenced 6-7-1999, in the Melbourne Magistrates Court, to a 12 month community based order - 150 hours of unpaid community work - ordered to attend a sexual offender program.

Offence/Other: Gregory Mark Starow - Pleaded guilty to possessing computer images depicting children in an indecent sexual manner.. Investigators found 24,342 files on his home computer, most of which contained images of young children in sexually explicit poses, during a raid on his home on 28 October 1998..Starow admitted that he was part of a paedophile group whose members had to possess a minimum of 10,000 pornographic pictures of children before they could join.

"Child sex images checked abuse: claim" (7-7-1999)
A computer systems analyst, who was part of a worldwide Internet paedophile group, claimed he used thousands of images of child pornography as a way of avoiding molesting children, the Melbourne Magistrates Court was told yesterday. The court heard that Gregory Mark Starow, 37, had claimed that the photos were his sexual release and the Internet was ``keeping him off the streets". Police said that Starow, from St Kilda, had admitted he was part of a paedophile group called Wonderland, whose members had to possess a minimum of 10,000 pornographic pictures before they could join. The court heard that Starow, who pleaded guilty to possessing computer images depicting children in an indecent sexual manner, was attracted to girls aged between three and 10. Senior Constable Craig Atkinson, prosecuting, said investigators found 24,342 files on his home computer, most of which contained images of young children in sexually explicit poses, during a raid on his home on 28 October last year. Senior Constable Atkinson said Starow was the longest-serving member of Wonderland, using the name ``Jenny" and the nicknames ``Jenny Mey" and ``Wantmore". Mr Michael McNamara, defending, said Starow, who had cooperated with police, had not created or sold the material and had not been in trouble before. A report by a psychologist, Mr Bernard Healy, said that Starow was unable to see beyond the crime and believed there were no victims. The magistrate, Mr Phillip Rodda, said Mr Healy reported that Starow would discourage others from physically abusing children and that he asserted he was a paedophile, not a child abuser. Starow was convicted and put on a community-based order for 12 months and was ordered to do 150 hours of unpaid community work. He was also ordered to attend a sexual offender program.

Age: 43 yrs old (2013)
Sentence: Sentenced in September 2006, in the Ipswich District Court, to 8 months jail - placed on probation for 3 yrs after being released.. Sentenced in 1999 to an intensive correction order.

Offence/Other: Simon Peter Steinfort- Pleaded guilty to possessing child exploitation material.. Police raided his home in July 2009,and 12,764 images and videos of child pornography were found on Steinfort's computer.. Prior history in 1999 - received intensive correction order.

Man jailed over child porn (2-9-2010)
An Ipswich man was jailed for having child porn after his wife dobbed him in to police for the second time. Simon Peter Steinfort's wife stumbled across his stash of child exploitation material saved on his computer on July 10 last year and rang the police, who raided his Ipswich home the next day. But Ipswich District Court heard Steinfort's wife had previously also alerted the authorities 11 years ago when she uncovered his original stash. In 1999, Steinfort received an intensive correction order – which means he did not serve any time behind bars – and the court was told at the time he did not have a sexual interest in the material and it was just “curiosity”. Crown Prosecutor Jess Goldie said police discovered 12,764 images and videos of child pornography on Steinfort's computer towers last year. Steinfort told police he was “bisexual and interested in young males in their early teens”. Of images and videos found, only 883 were readily accessible as the others had been deleted or corrupted. Ms Goldie said 397 of the images and videos included young boys aged between six and 16 engaging in graphic sexual activities with each other and adults and were in the second-worst category. She said 97 images found on Steinfort's computer were considered in the worst category and involved sadism of young boys; 361 videos were also discovered. Steinfort, 40, pleaded guilty to possessing child exploitation material. He was sentenced to eight months' jail and will be on probation for three years after being released. Defence barrister Peter Sloane said his client was still in a relationship with his wife. Judge Sarah Bradley said Steinfort had to be jailed to send a message to the community that possessing child exploitation material would not be tolerated. “There are real victims out there somewhere who have been the subject of these videos and images,” Judge Bradley said. “Without people like you who consume the images or access the images then this horrific industry probably would not exist.”

Sentence: Sentenced to 5 mths jail/ suspended for 15 mths/ fined $5000.
Offence/Other: Doctor. Pleaded guilty in the Dandenong Magistrates Court in July 2005 to 3 counts of knowingly possessing child pornography. Caught with 1400 child pornography images of children aged between 8-14 yrs.
We have received unconfirmed reports that he may be living in Portland-Victoia, and working at a Portland Medical centre under the name "Abraham Stephenson".


News- "GP downloading child porn given second chance"- Is there any circumstance in which someone convicted of child sex offences can safely practise medicine? Yes, according to a panel of the Medical Practitioners Board of Victoria. Dr Abraham Stephanopoulos was a young neurosurgery registrar at the Monash Medical Centre in 2003 when he was caught downloading child pornography on to a computer used by the hospital’s registrars. The police seized his home computer and some discs, which also contained a large amount of pornography, including child pornography. In July 2005, Dr Stephanopoulos was convicted in the Dandenong Magistrates Court of three counts of knowingly possessing child pornography. He was sentenced to five months in jail, wholly suspended for 15 months. Dr Stephanopoulos’s medical registration had been suspended since November 2004 while the Medical Practitioners Board of Victoria investigated his conduct. On 16 August 2006, the panel reached its decision. “It would be only in rare circumstance that a panel of this board would contemplate permitting a medical practitioner convicted of possession of child pornography to return to practice,” the panel wrote in its reason for its decision. “Ultimately, it has concluded in this particular case that such circumstances have been established.” The young doctor’s treating psychiatrist and psychologist had testified he was not a paedophile and was at low risk of reoffending. Downloading pornography was a manifestation of anxiety and stress. Dr Stephanopoulos was reprimanded for bringing discredit on the profession. The panel suspended him until March 2007, when his suspended criminal sentence expired. Conditions were also placed on his registration; he can’t treat anyone under 18 until 2015 and must provide regular proof he is seeing his psychiatrist for another eight years. “It is a reality that many young professionals make serious errors in judgment at some stage,” the panel determined. “This in itself does nor render them inappropriate for continuing membership of their profession.”

Name: JAMES NIGEL STEPHENS (James Stephens) (NSW - Sydney)
Age: 24 yrs old (2013)
Sentence: Sentenced in October 2013, in the New South Wales District Court, to 20 yrs jail - 14 yrs non parole.

Offence/Other: James Nigel Stephens - Pleaded guilty to 3 counts of aggravated sexual assault and aggravated detention of a person for advantage.

"Car boot rapist jailed for 14 years" (17-10-2008)
A Sydney teenager who launched a "rampage of rape" on a topless waitress after hiding in her car boot has been jailed for at least 14 years. In setting a maximum term of 20 years for James Nigel Stephens, Judge Michael Finnane said "It must be the worst nightmare for any woman to have a man suddenly emerge in a motor vehicle". Stephens, then 18, was at a buck's party where the woman, 22, had worked in January last year. He secretly took her keys, opened the boot and later got into it. He pleaded guilty to three counts of aggravated sexual assault and aggravated detention of a person for advantage over the incident at Waterloo, in inner-Sydney. "What he did was horrifying in its cruelty," the judge said in the New South Wales District Court. "It was planned and calculated. "He hid himself in the boot of her car and when she was alone, emerged suddenly, grabbed her from behind, threatening her with a plastic fork pressed to her neck, causing her to scream with fear." He forced the woman to pull over "then started a rampage of rape, in the course of which he anally raped her twice, vaginally three times, orally once and digitally twice". The judge said Stephens had good relationships with his family, particularly his sister, and there was nothing in his background to suggest he was a sex offender. "Some of the offences had a sadistic quality to them and he showed, during the time of committing these offences, an attitude of contempt for the complainant and utter indifference to her suffering," he said. "Nothing in his background explains any of this." The judge concluded Stephens had "intelligence, ambition, physical fitness" and had been well regarded as an employee and as a footballer with some potential. "I must emphasise that I have no acceptable evidence that he drank to excess or that he consumed anabolic steroids," the judge said. During sentencing submissions last month, Stephens' barrister had submitted the teenager had probably been under the influence of a "very, very nasty cocktail" of alcohol and steroids.

The girls father has rightly called the sentence pathetic...the current court system is letting down the victims/ victims families. Harsh lengthy jail sentences/ Deterrents are needed. It is also of major concern that these so called sex offender sessions are held secretly in the community and not in jail where it should be. They get to meet/ mix with other paedophiles in the community... this is obviousily placing you and your children at risk as sex offenders especially paedophiles are highly likely to re-offend.

Offence/Other: Andrew Stewart pleaded guilty to 2 home invasions in 9 days in 2010. During one of the home invasions a woman was raped.

News- "Invaders get 10 years jail"
While two men responsible for a harrowing South Grafton home invasion will spend almost a decade behind bars, their accomplice still roams free. South Grafton man Travis Braam, 21 and Clarenza man Andrew Mark Stewart, 24, were sentenced for their part in a brutal Bent St home raid in November 2010. In November last year a Grafton Court heard how the two men pleaded guilty to two home invasions in nine days, one in which a woman was raped and a man had his finger dislocated. Both were sentenced at the Downing Centre District Court last week, with Judge Anthony Garling handing Braam 15 years imprisonment, with a non-parole period of nine years and Stewart 15 years and six months, with a non-parole period of 10 years. The men won't be released until November 2019 and November 2020 respectively. Grafton Police's Det Sgt Grahame Burke welcomed the tough sentencing. "This result sends a clear message that these types of offences are considered extremely serious," Det Sgt Burke said. "Any individual involved in a 'run in', as these types of offences are sometimes referred to by the criminal element, should expect a lengthy jail term when arrested." Croydon man Ashley Jack Cullen, 20, was granted bail after pleading guilty to his involvement in the second of the two invasions. Grafton detectives confirmed a warrant was issued for his arrest after he failed to appear for sentencing. Anyone who has seen Cullen is urged to contact Grafton Police on 6642 0222 or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

Offence/Other: Dennis Michael Stewart - Former teacher at a Ballarat secondary school- pleaded guilty to 4 counts of committing an indecent act with a child under 16, in the County Court in Ballarat 20-11-2012..Victims were 2 boys.

"Former Ballarat teacher faces court again on sex charges" (21-11-2012)
A former teacher at a Ballarat secondary school has pleaded guilty to child sexual abuse charges. Dennis Michael Stewart, 50, appeared in the dock of the County Court in Ballarat yesterday, where he entered guilty pleas to four counts of committing an indecent act with a child under 16. In a courtroom void of friends or family, Stewart wept as the charges were read to him. The charges relate to two boys who were students at the school where Stewart taught. Three of the charges relate to one boy, and one to the other. The school cannot be named for legal reasons. Stewart’s guilty plea spares 25 prosecution witnesses from giving evidence, including his two victims and 17 other civilians. Counsel for Stewart, Ian Hayden said his client would engage with a forensic psychiatrist before the plea hearing, which is scheduled for February 4 at the County Court in Melbourne. A video link will be set up with the Ballarat court to enable interested parties to watch the proceedings. Crown prosecutor Diana Piekusis said the matter was “of some complexity” and the plea hearing would likely require more than a day of court time. She said it was possible the Crown would cross- examine any medical witnesses put forward by the defence.

Name: LESLIE JAMES STEWART (NSW - Windang)
Age: 64 yrs (2012)
Sentence: Sentenced 23-2-2012, to 10 yrs jail/ 7 yrs 3 months non parole.

Offence/Other: Sexually assaulted 8 children, including a 5 yr old girl. Stewart pleaded guilty in 2011 to sex offences, including 1 charge each of sexual intercourse with a person under 16, and aggravated indecent assault.

News (24-2-2012)- "'Sexual predator' Leslie Stewart jailed"- A Windang man who molested eight children, including a five-year-old girl, was described as a "true sexual predator" yesterday as he was sentenced to an overall 10 years' jail for the horrific abuse. Leslie James Stewart, known as "Uncle Les" to many of his victims, was ordered to serve a minimum seven years and three months for the assaults, which spanned more than two decades. Sentencing the 64-year-old to jail, Judge Paul Conlon said Stewart was a true sexual predator in every sense of the word. "The mere recitation of the facts are sufficient to show the extreme seriousness of [his] conduct. "The offender engaged in a lengthy period of sexual offending against young, vulnerable children ... this was a gross breach of trust," he said. The offences, which took place in several Wollongong suburbs and in Orange and Mudgee, were committed between 1977 and 2002 and often occurred while Stewart babysat the children. Judge Conlon told Wollongong District Court most of the victims had been subjected to ongoing sexual abuse and several had experienced degrading acts. The court heard Stewart had been "unusually frank" in discussing his conduct, admitting to fantasising about young girls and taking advantage of staying with the victims or caring for them to molest them. The first victim, now 44, was repeatedly assaulted by Stewart between the ages of nine and 12, while her younger sister recalled Stewart driving her to Wollongong Crematorium and assaulting her. Another victim, now 39, was molested by Stewart at her home when he entered the bathroom while she was naked. Stewart sexually abused a fourth victim, now 44, while living with her family, regularly entering her bedroom and assaulting her while she was asleep. Stewart fed ice cream to another girl, who was aged five at the time, before assaulting her for about 10 minutes. He later exposed himself to a sixth victim while parked in the driveway of her Mudgee home. A male complainant was aged 12 when Stewart assaulted him outside a Warrawong club and the final victim was assaulted while living with Stewart in Orange. Judge Conlon referred to a psychiatric report, noting Stewart had shown little understanding of the impact of his actions and would benefit from a sex offender program while in custody. The court was told Stewart had expressed remorse and had some medical problems. Stewart pleaded guilty last year to a raft of sex offences, including one charge each of sexual intercourse with a person under 16 and aggravated indecent assault.

News (20-12-2012)- "Paedophile back in jail after schools warning"
A paedophile who tried to sell a child-tracking device to parents through the education system and was accused of trying to get work as a relief teacher is back in jail after his parole was cancelled. The Department of Corrective Services has confirmed that Kim Lance Stracke, who was described in a warning to private school principals this month as a "real risk" to children, is in custody. It is believed Kim Stracke, 61, was returned to jail on December 11, the day after a warrant was issued for his arrest when his parole was cancelled. He must spend another two months in jail to complete his sentence. The Prisoners Review Board has confirmed a decision published on its website is about Stracke, though its policy is not to name him. The decision said the board was concerned about Stracke's overall elevated risk of reoffending and risk to community safety. It said its concerns were raised because Stracke attended schools as part of his retail activity and attempted to get a working with children clearance and employment as a relief teacher. The decision said Stracke was also removed from a sex offender program because of his "disruptive" behaviour and that he continued to resist engaging in treatment. Stracke pleaded guilty in 2010 to three counts of indecently dealing with, and two counts of sexual penetration of, a child aged between 13 and 16. His four-year, eight-month jail term was reduced to three years after an appeal. He was given parole in August last year after 18 months on conditions that included no unsupervised contact with children aged under 16, no contact with his victim, that he complies with national sex offender register reporting requirements and not change address without the board's approval. The Education Department told principals on December 3 they should report any contact with Stracke and ask him to leave school premises. An Association of Independent Schools of WA email to private school principals two days later alleged Stracke was trying to work as a relief teacher and was marketing a child-tracking device. When contacted by The West Australian at the time, Stracke denied seeking relief teacher work and said the device he was marketing would not let him track children. Stracke's wife Susan said yesterday the allegations that her husband was seeking a working with children permit and work as a relief teacher were "completely false" and they were working to bring the truth to light.

Offence/Other: Paedophile Teacher Tony Strudwick, was released from jail in 2003 after serving an 11 yr sentence for 25 child sex offences including rape.. Strudwick taught at schools including - Toowoomba Preparatory School - Darling Downs primary school - Harlaxton Primary School.

Pedophile allowed to teach - The court heard in 1980, Robert Brewster, the headmaster of the Toowoomba Preparatory School, was approached by a mother who claimed Strudwick had inappropriately touched her two daughters. After being confronted with the allegations, Strudwick resigned from the school but he was provided with a written reference from Mr Brewster. The reference, which said Strudwick left Toowoomba Prep with the school's blessing, read in part: "He has also captured the enthusiasm of his pupils demonstrating at all times his deep concern for their welfare and progress as well as maintaining the highest possible standards." The reference did not disclose any allegations of sexual misconduct. Strudwick was hired by the Queensland Education Department in October 1980 and taught at Darling Downs schools- Read More below.


News (23-8-2007)- "Pedophile allowed to teach"-
A PEDOPHILE teacher used a glowing reference from an Anglican school to get a job in the state education system where he abused children, a court has heard. The headmaster of the Toowoomba Preparatory School gave Tony Jenner Strudwick a "very positive" reference despite Strudwick resigning after allegations he had molested two young girls. Strudwick used the reference to get a job with the Queensland Education Department and he later abused children at a Darling Downs primary school. The reference is now central to a personal injury claim by one of Strudwick's victims.
Strudwick, 73, was released from jail in 2003 after serving all of his 11 years' sentence for 25 child sex offences including rape. In the Supreme Court yesterday, Justice Ann Lyons allowed an extension of time in which one of Strudwick's victims could bring an action against the Corporation of the Synod of the Diocese of Brisbane, which runs Toowoomba Prep. The State Government (for the Education Department) is named as a third party in the action.
The court heard in 1980, Robert Brewster, the headmaster of the Toowoomba Preparatory School, was approached by a mother who claimed Strudwick had inappropriately touched her two daughters. After being confronted with the allegations, Strudwick resigned from the school but he was provided with a written reference from Mr Brewster. The reference, which said Strudwick left Toowoomba Prep with the school's blessing, read in part: "He has also captured the enthusiasm of his pupils demonstrating at all times his deep concern for their welfare and progress as well as maintaining the highest possible standards." The reference did not disclose any allegations of sexual misconduct. Strudwick was hired by the Queensland Education Department in October 1980 and taught at Darling Downs schools. While at Harlaxton Primary School, in Toowoomba, Strudwick molested two girls including a woman, who is now 33. Strudwick abused her from 1983, when he was her teacher, until 1992. In her Supreme Court action, the woman claims the reference enabled Strudwick to gain employment with the state Education Department which allowed him to have contact with her and then molest her. The matter can now go to trial. http://www.couriermail.com.au/news/queensland/pedophile-allowed-to-teach/story-e6freoof-1111114244381

News (21-8-2012)- "Repeat offender Eamon Merritt Sumner 'tried to abduct' elderly woman at St Agnes"
A man charged with the violent attempted abduction of an Adelaide grandmother has a history of sexual offending against elderly women, a court has heard. Eamon Merritt Sumner was arrested and charged yesterday over the alleged abduction of the 70-year-old woman at St Agnes about 7am on Sunday. In opposing bail under any conditions, Sergeant Paul Silvester told the Holden Hill Magistrates Court that Sumner had a lengthy criminal record, only being released from prison in May for offences of serious criminal trespass and indecent assault. Sgt Silvester said Sumner, 27, also had served prison time for indecent assault and grossly indecent acts against four women aged between 55 and 68. "This defendant has a history of sexual assault and grossly indecent acts directed towards elderly women... if he is released, history shows there is very likely to be further offending," he said. Sgt Silvester said the alleged victim had noticed Sumner at a car wash on North East Rd, 20 minutes before he confronted her on Kennedy Ave. He then allegedly grabbed her and tried to force her into the boot of a white Holden Commodore, stomping on her face as she screamed and struggled. Sgt Silvester said the attack only stopped when a male witness verbally challenged Sumner. "If that woman had been forced into the boot we could be dealing with a far greater offence today than we are," he said. He was allegedly identified by CCTV footage and clothes matching the description of the alleged offender were seized from his home. Magistrate Jane Schammer refused to order a home detention bail report because of the gravity of the allegations. "This is right up there with very serious offending and I cannot possibly grant bail in the circumstances that are alleged," she said. Sumner was remanded to appear in court again at a later date.

A Derby man has been sentenced to five years jail for holding a female backpacker against her will and attempting to sexually assault her. In the Broome District Court yesterday,Ian Surprise pleaded guilty to deprivation of liberty, aggravated assault and attempted sexual penetration. The Court heard that the woman was attacked in April last year as she finished a shift working behind the bar at the Spinifex Hotel. Detective Sergeant Graeme Johnston says the woman was lucky to escape after Surprise trapped her in her room at the staff quarters. "She struggled, it was a particularly violent attack and she managed to struggle free," he said. "She actually led him to believe that she was going to get a condom and instead locked herself in the bathroom, so she was able to get hold of him that way." Surprise was jailed for five years but will be eligible for parole at an earlier date.

Parents should have the confidence to send their children to school without fear of their being preyed on by lustful teachers, a County Court judge said yesterday. In jailing former teacher Stuart Sutherland for a minimum of two years for having sex with a teenage student he was counselling, Judge Stuart Campbell said the issue of general deterrence for teachers in similar situations was an important one. Sutherland, 40, of Frankston, received a maximum jail term of three years after pleading guilty to three charges of committing an indecent act and one count of sexual penetration of a child under 16. The father of two young children, Sutherland began the affair with a 15-year-old student after counselling her for "general teenage problems".

News (19-4-2012)- "Sex fiend Daniel Philip Sybenga to live with parents"-
A notoriously dangerous pedophile with a history of preying on toddlers because they were too young to identify him will today be freed from jail to live with his parents. However, a judge this morning made the order to release the pedophile, but did not reveal the location of his parents' home, which is reportedly on Brisbane's northside. Brisbane Supreme Court judge Peter Lyons today ordered Daniel Philip Sybenga, 28, be released immediately on a supervised order and allowed to live with his middle-aged mother and father. Sybenga, who has served more than three-and-a-half years longer than his full jail term for sexually molesting numerous young girls, will have to comply with 38 strict conditions, including wearing an electronic monitoring device or obey a curfew and stay away from shopping centres. Justice Lyons, who approved Sybenga's release on Monday, adjourned the hearing until this morning so the Queensland Department of Corrections could assess the suitability of Sybenga living with his parents upon release from jail. In making the order, Justice Lyons did not state where Sybenga would reside upon release, However, The Courier-Mail this morning learned Sybenga had been given approval to live with his parents. Sybenga was only 19 when he committed 16 counts of indecently dealing with nine children under the age of 12 in late 2002 and early 2003. Nine of the 16 offences involved him approaching small girls (aged five or six) in public places and exposing himself. In two cases he touched the children in an indecent manner. The other charges involved the molestation of a three-year-old girl. Sybenga was due for release on July 1, 2008, after his sentence was completed, but has remained in custody. Sybenga was released on an interim order in 2008, but became the subject of an on-going detention order under the Dangerous Prisoners (Sexual Offenders) Act 2003 after Sybenga openly spoke about the likelihood of reoffending if released. However, two eminent psychiatrists yesterday testified Sybenga had "made significant gains'' since then _ having recently completed the High Intensity Sexual Offending Program.'' Specialist psychiatrist Dr Michael Beech told the court Sybenga had for the first time since abusing the children demonstrated "significant disgust and shame'' molesting them. But, he said Sybenga's deviant "entrenched pattern of sexual fantasies'' stemmed back to childhood and future arousal could be triggered by viewing adult pornography. Dr Beech said Sybenga had admitted that while in prison he could be easily aroused by reading a Penthouse magazine or "watching late-night SBS programs.'' Psychiatrist Dr Donald Grant said Sybenga appears "very genuine in his attitudes'' and feels "shamed and embarrassed'' by the impact his offending had on his child victims. Barrister Tim Ryan, for the Queensland Attorney-General, said if Sybenga was granted supervised release the order should be imposed for a minimum of 10-years. Mr Ryan said Sybenga would also be subjected to strict conditions, including electronic monitoring or curfew and being forbidden from visiting shopping centres and accessing pornography of any kind. Barrister Mark Green, for Sybenga, said his client's parents had agreed to house the convicted pedophile upon his release. Justice Glenn Martin in 2009 ordered Sybenga be detained because he remained a high risk of reoffending. In September 2010, Justice James Douglas, after also reviewing psychiatric evidence, found Sybenga remained a danger. "His aberrant views about the logic of behaviour towards young girls remain firmly entrenched,'' he said. Justice Douglas found Sybenga's parents were not appropriate supervisors because of concern as to whether they could provide adequate security at home, and their lack of training.

A man has been given a suspended sentence for procuring child pornography in Victoria's Latrobe Valley. John Sykes, 26, met the 12-year-old victim at a motorsport event in March last year.

Name: TRENT WESLEY SYKES
(QLD - Brisbane)
Age: 31 yrs old (2012)
Sentence: Sentenced 11-6-2009, in the Toowoomba District Court, to 15 months jail - to be released after having served 6 months to then be subject to 2 yrs probation and 2 yrs good behaviour.

Offence/Other: Trent Wesley Sykes - Child Pornography Offence/s.

News (12-6-2009)- "Pervert jailed over child porn"
Child pornography pervert Trent Wesley Sykes will spend the next six months behind bars for downloading shocking sexual images of children. Some of the images found on the computer used by the 28-year-old to access child pornography included sexual acts by adults with children as young as three to nine-months-old, Toowoomba District Court heard yesterday. Judge Walter Tutt was scathing in his sentencing remarks, describing as "nauseating" and "revolting" the images downloaded by Sykes, copies of which were handed to the court. "One can only speculate as to what depths the mind must sink," Judge Tutt said referring to those who downloaded such material. Sykes was located in Toowoomba in May last year by the Australian Federal Police Child Protection Online Team, responsible for co-ordinating Australia’s wing of a world-wide police operation cracking down on child exploitation material and pedophile rings. Commonwealth prosecutor Kylie Ward said a search of the material Sykes had accessed included 89 images of child exploitation material depicting naked girls aged five to 14 in various poses, and scenes of adults engaged in sex acts with children aged from three months to 10 years. Because Sykes had no computer of his own, he had accessed the images via his father-in-law’s computer during visits to his then-wife’s parents’ home. A subsequent search of Sykes’ Rangeville home had found an external hard disc drive which contained further images of child pornography, Ms Ward said. The prosecution had sought a sentence of 15 months jail to serve an actual term of about one-third followed by probation. However, Sykes’ barrister Robbie Davies said, though the website images were "revolting material", his client’s offending had been at the lower end of the scale. Mr Davies tended to the court five comparable sentences of similar charges where the offending, in his opinion, was much worse and where the offenders received no jail time at all. His client had already suffered some penalty in that, once his charges became public, he had lost his wife, his job, his reputation and had since had to relocate to Brisbane, he said. Sykes had not transmitted any of the material and would now be subject to the Sex Offenders Register. Mr Davies submitted a fully suspended sentence or intensive correction order. Judge Tutt said: "I must say I am somewhat surprised that the sentences imposed on these types of offences are so low." He sentenced Sykes to 15 months jail, to be released after having served six months to then be subject to two years probation and two years good behaviour. Sykes was also sentenced to 12 months jail, suspended after four months, with the balance to hang over his head for the next two years.
