Paedo gets a year in jail

The Daily Telegraph (Sydney) - - News -

A FOR­MER school­teacher and Olympic medal­list who sex­u­ally abused boys un­der his care decades ago could walk from jail in a year.

Vili Ko­vac, 85, raped a boy dur­ing a school camp while teach­ing at Mar­cellin Col­lege and abused an­other boy while work­ing as an ath­let­ics coach at Xavier Col­lege, with both as­saults oc­cur­ring in the 1960s.

In a Vic­to­rian court yes­ter­day, Ko­vac, who won a bronze medal for Yu­goslavia in hur­dling at the Rome 1960 Olympics, was jailed for a min­i­mum of just a year be­cause of his ad­vanced age and poor health.
