"Prison for babysitter" (2-11-2007)
A Ballarat man who got an 11-year-old he was babysitting pregnant was yesterday jailed for a minimum of five years. Matthew James Vernon, 29, had sex with the girl on two occasions while baby-sitting at the family home, the County Court in Ballarat heard. The girl's teachers and mother noticed a change to her body shape and she gave birth at just 12 years of age. Outside court the girl's mother said the family now had to look towards the future."I'm just so glad that it's all over now, that we can get on with our lives and put an end to that horrific situation," she said. "Nobody else is going to get hurt by him."The woman described finding out her daughter was pregnant as a "bombshell".She said the family would always support the girl and give her the opportunity to be a teenager. Her daughter now aged 14 said she thought Vernon should have received a longer sentence. "It's changed my life totally," she said. "It's been really stressful but I've got though it."The girl said she would now be able to walk down the streets without feeling scared. "I'm glad that he's gone," she said. The girl's mother urged any children in similar circumstances to come forward and tell someone. Judge Margaret Rizkalla said Vernon had betrayed the trust of the girl's family who had incorporated the baby into their lives. "Her mother has taken on the mothering role," she said. "Their lives have been completely turned around."Judge Rizkalla said the girl was "torn between the world of being a mother and being a child of 14".She said Vernon was emotionally immature, had attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and had also been diagnosed with depression. The court heard Vernon was now in a stable relationship and had fathered another baby.Defence lawyer Helen Spowart said Vernon had become suicidal while in custody and feared for his safety from other prisoners. Vernon pleaded guilty to three counts of digital penetration and one count of sexual penetration of a child under 16. He was convicted and sentenced to six and a half years in jail with a minimum non parole period of five years.

"Rape victim's mum warns of friends" (30-9-2007)
The mother of a girl who gave birth at 12 after being raped by her babysitter has warned other parents to beware of predators posing as friends. The woman told how her daughter was barely coping with the "emotional tragedy". And she issued a chilling warning to all parents to be wary of anyone taking a special interest in their children. Matthew James Vernon, 29, pleaded guilty in Ballarat County Court this month to four counts of sexual penetration of a girl under 16. Vernon, of Ballarat East, had sex with the girl at least twice while babysitting at her home. It was alleged he began the relationship with the girl when she was only 11 and even violated her while her mother was in the garden. The girl's pregnancy was confirmed with a home test after her mother and teachers had noticed changes in her body shape. She then named Vernon as the father and DNA tests confirmed his paternity. The girl's parents are now helping her to bring up the baby. But her mother said the girl was torn between wanting to be a mother and not losing her childhood. "She's bottling it up and then explodes," she said. The woman said that no parents could afford to be complacent over their children's welfare - even with so-called friends. "Just be wary of them," she said. "If they take a special interest in one person, particularly a girl, just be careful. "I don't want anyone else to go through the hell we've been through." Vernon will be sentenced at a date to be fixed. His defence counsel admitted that prison was the only appropriate punishment for him.

"Girl, 12, has babysitter's child" (20-9-2007)
A 12-year-old schoolgirl gave birth to her babysitter's child, a court has heard. Matthew Vernon, 29, of Ballarat East, had sex with the girl at least twice while babysitting at her home. He was charged after the girl named him as the father following a home pregnancy test. Her mother and teachers had already noticed changes to her body shape. Vernon yesterday pleaded guilty at the County Court in Ballarat to four counts of sexual penetration of a child under 16 - a crime punishable by up to 15 years behind bars. Outside court, the girl's devastated mother expressed relief the legal process was drawing to an end. She said her daughter was barely coping with an "emotional tragedy", causing conflict within the family. "She's coping up to a point," the mother said. "She's not having counselling, which is very hard. She's bottling it up and then explodes; her anger comes out towards me." The woman said her daughter was also torn between wanting to be a mother and a child. "(The baby) calls me mum, which hurts (my daughter). I know in my own heart that (she) is her mother, but at the moment I have to let her be a kid and not take all the role, but some of that role," she said. The woman issued a warning to fellow parents who noticed family or friends acting strangely around children. "Just be wary of them. If they take a special interest in one person, particularly a girl, just be careful. Don't let anybody else go through the hell we've been through," she said. Crown prosecutor David Cordy said Vernon's offending had serious ongoing consequences for the victim, her family and her child. Vernon's defence counsel, Helen Spowart, conceded prison was the only appropriate punishment for his crimes. But Ms Spowart urged the court to set a relatively short non-parole period, saying Vernon had taken significant steps towards rehabilitation. She said her client had voluntarily sought counselling with clinical psychologist Dr Paul Grech, who assessed him as a low risk of re-offending. According to Dr Grech's report, Vernon had a history of personal immaturity, impulsiveness, and lack of social judgement. But he was not predatory or preoccupied with underage sexuality, Ms Spowart said. Ms Spowart asked the court to consider Vernon had no contact with his victim and felt shame and remorse for his behaviour. He had since entered a stable relationship, fathered another child and "grown up a lot", Ms Spowart said. "The relationship has given his life some focus, meaning and stability," she said. Judge Margaret Rizkalla revoked Vernon's bail and adjourned sentencing to a date to be fixed.

News (5-11-2007)- "Qld paedophiles given longer sentences"- Three members of a Brisbane paedophile ring have had their prison sentences extended after US authorities seized photographs of them involved in child sex acts. Leigh William Andrews, 27, Shannon Lee Voigt, 31, and Earl James Henderson, 33, all of Caboolture, pleaded guilty in Brisbane District Court to dozens of indecent dealing offences. All three are already serving lengthy sentences relating to the abuse of several boys between 2001 and 2004. However, the court heard fresh charges were brought after US authorities located photographs of Voigt and Andrews involved in sex acts with the children. The photos were passed on to Queensland police who re-interviewed each of the defendants, resulting in new confessions. Henderson admitted to taking many of the photos and being involved in procuring sex acts between the children but was not represented in any of the pictures. Judge Milton Griffin extended each of the men's sentences, handed down in 2005, by 18 months. Andrews will now serve a total of eight-and-a-half years while Henderson will serve nine-and-a-half years and Voigt 10-and-a-half years. However, Henderson will be eligible for bail after completing a sex offender program while Andrews will become eligible in May next year. Voigt will remain in prison until at least September 2009.
