Sex Offender fined but freed

A convicted child sex offender who failed to comply with the requirements of Victoria's Sex Register claimed he simply forgot, a court has heard.
But a police prosecutor told Geelong Magistrates' Court, Walter Hueber would have had his obligations fully explained to him when first placed on it.
"Those conditions included having to report any change in personal circumstances, including a change of address, change of motor vehicle and/or phone number, to police within 14 days," Leading Senior Constable David Vanderpol said.
Hueber, 59, formerly of Dereel and now living in Geelong, pleaded guilty in Geelong Magistrates' Court yesterday to four failures to comply with the Sex Offenders Register.
Hueber was placed on the register for eight years in 2009 after being convicted of sexually assaulting a four-year-old girl.
He was sentenced in November of that year to five months' jail suspended for two years, but later successfully appealed the decision in Geelong County Court and was re-sentenced to five months' jail suspended for 12 months.
Sen-Constable Vanderpol told the court yesterday that on October 30, 2010, during his annual police interview, Hueber told police he was living at Elaine and admitted failing to notify police of his change of address within 14 days.
The prosecutor said that on April 9, 2011, Hueber purchased a new car and again failed to inform police of the details of his new vehicle.
"In August 2011, he changed his mobile phone and failed to notify police of the new number and on November 8, he admitted using the internet and having an email address," Sen-Constable Vanderpol said.
"He had reported none of these changes in personal circumstances to police.
"Hueber was arrested by appointment at Geelong police station on November 8 and made full admissions to the offending."
Mary Foley, for Hueber, said her client simply forgot his reporting obligations but had informed police of the changes during his annual interviews.
Magistrate Stephen Myall convicted Hueber on all counts and fined him $1000.
