A paedophile who molested a neighbour’s nine-year-old girl was released from jail to return to live next door to the victim and her family.
The girl’s parents are disgusted, and rightly so, after being told by the State Government that they should consider building a higher fence or move from their home in Perth’s southern suburbs if they want to get away from the 66-year-old sex offender.
The Justice system has gone mad! I don’t know who’s borrowing the State Governments brain cell at the moment, but who ever’s got it, would you please give it back!
The couple have said that they could not afford to shift and were appalled that the system had allowed the man to return to the place where he committed the offences. His home is close to a primary school and next to a park with a playground.
“I feel like he is the victim and we are the criminals,” the girl’s mother said.
The man, who cannot be named to protect the girl’s identity, spent 6½ months in custody before being sentenced to a 12-month conditional suspended jail term after pleading guilty to four counts of indecently dealing with a child under 13.
It’s about time that Fremantle Prison was re-opened where this, so called man, can spend the rest of his castrated life.
The girl and her siblings were playing in the man’s backyard in November last year when the man, who was drunk, indecently dealt with her. This is something that the booze cannot take the blame for. Most of us can have a drink without behaving in a sick and sordid manor.
Attorney-General Christian Porter said yesterday that the effectiveness of suspended jail terms was being considered as part of a review of sentencing laws, but courts had “other options” for imposing conditions on offenders and he could not comment on why they were not used in the man’s case. Christian Porter…have you got any children?
Imposing the suspended jail term in June, Judge Bill Groves took into account the man’s unblemished record and accepted he was an otherwise “diligent, hard-working family man”. Again, we ask the question, Bill Groves…have you got any children?
Judge Groves said the offences were serious enough to warrant a jail term, but the man posed a low risk of re-offending and had already spent 6½ months in custody.
He said he could not impose conditions to prevent the man from drinking alcohol or to ensure he had only supervised contact with children. “That’s a matter which rests in your conscience and no doubt your wife will assist you in adhering to that at least for some time so as to ensure that any risk of re-offending in this way in the future is avoided,” said Judge Groves, who ordered the man to report to community services and undertake counselling and treatment as directed.
I understand that it would be an absolute wonderful world if every wrong could be righted with rehabilitation. But this is the paedophiles 4th offence…not 1st…but 4th offence. Judge Groves, I think you owe the victims, and I quote, “to ensure that any risk of re-offending in this way in the future is avoided”. What you’re doing is putting these poor, law-abiding people through hell, you thoughtless p***k.
That’s ok Bill, if you supply us with your address, then maybe we can send you a couple of 6-packs, no, hang on, why not a carton of beer and then maybe you can forward it to the paedaphile. Because, in reality, by not keeping this sick f*** in prison, you’ve basically given him a license to do it again. You know, Bill, I think that you should be castrated, because you’re responsible for this man being allowed to buy a beer, being allowed to live near a park, being allowed to live near a school, and the worst of all, being allowed to live next to his victim. Judge Groves, you’re sicker than a paedaphile.
Apparently it is possible…possible that acondition could be imposed preventing him from contacting the girl…this just gets better and better.
“I want him to move or I want the Government to move us, it is that simple,” the girl’s father said.
Shadow attorney-general John Quigley said he was disturbed by the case and it was totally unacceptable that the man had resumed living next door to the family, which could cause ongoing psychological damage to the girl.
Whether it be Labor or Liberal that gets into power next week, please, in the name of sanity, give these victims some justice.
