Con­victed pae­dophile sent back to jail

Mandurah Coastal Times - - NEWS -

A CON­VICTED pae­dophile who was re­leased back into the com­mu­nity ig­nored his bail con­di­tions and broke into a home, it was heard in Man­durah Mag­is­trates Court re­cently.

The ac­cused, who can­not be named to pro­tect his vic­tim, was con­victed in 2016 of in­de­cently deal­ing with his stepchild in 2014.

It was heard in Perth District Court a week ear­lier that the ac­cused touched the eight-year-old vic­tim’s gen­i­tals through her py­ja­mas, while ly­ing next to the vic­tim in her bed.

On Septem­ber 6, 2016, he was sen­tenced to 15 months in prison, which was sus­pended for 15 months.

Upon his re­lease, the ac­cused was or­dered to ab­stain from il­le­gal drugs, to re­port to sex of­fender man­age­ment squad of­fi­cers weekly, and to at­tend a cog­ni­tive in­ter­ven­tion pro­gram for sex of­fend­ers and the sex of­fender treat­ment pro­gram.

In Novem­ber, the ac­cused went on to a Sil­ver Sands prop­erty and used the ex­ter­nal tap.

He then broke in via a bath­room win­dow, which set off the in­ter­nal alarm. When he was ar­rested, he told them he was go­ing to take food from the fridge.

On Fe­bru­ary 28 this year, the ac­cused be­came in­volved in a ver­bal ar­gu­ment with his part­ner. She was ly­ing in bed at the time, where he kicked her in the head and back un­til she got out of bed.

He pushed her with both hands caus­ing her to fall to the floor.

She tried to crawl back into the bed­room to get some cloth­ing, when the ac­cused slammed the bed­room door twice on her foot.

He grabbed her by the hair and pulled her out of the bed­room.

He then threw cloth­ing at her, which she put on and then ran to the neigh­bour’s house.

On April 13, the ac­cused did not re­port to sex of­fender man­age­ment squad of­fi­cers.

Three days later he was ar­rested at the ad­dress of the fe­male vic­tim he at­tacked in Fe­bru­ary, who as part of his bail con­di­tions, he was not al­lowed to ap­proach.

Drug test­ing of the of­fender from Septem­ber, 2016 to Fe­bru­ary also showed he had been us­ing metham­phetamine and cannabis.

On Oc­to­ber 13, in Perth Mag­is­trates Court, the ac­cused was sen­tenced to six months in prison for breach­ing the sus­pended im­pris­on­ment or­der, as­sault oc­ca­sion­ing griev­ous bod­ily harm and breach of bail.

At Man­durah Mag­is­trates Court on Oc­to­ber 20, the ac­cused was sen­tenced to an ex­tra two months in prison for breach of bail, breach­ing pro­tec­tive bail con­di­tions, fail­ing to com­ply with re­port­ing obli­ga­tions and home bur­glary with in­tent.
