Puff­ing Billy per­vert

Sex with 13-year-old in tourist train car­riage

A VA­GRANT had sex with a 13-year-old girl in a Puff­ing Billy car­riage — then months later carved the word “pedo” into another man’s fore­head.

Jason Joshua Walk­ley, 27, also known as Jason Man­neken, is serv­ing a nine-year sen­tence im­posed in 2013 for his role in the blade at­tack.

Walk­ley has pleaded guilty to three charges of sex­u­ally pen­e­trat­ing a teenager in 2011 and 2012. The County Court heard Walk­ley was 22 when he started a re­la­tion­ship with the trou­bled teen, who was un­der the care of the Depart­ment of Hu­man Ser­vices.

Walk­ley had sex with the child while his mates were in the same bed, in a car out­side a Mt Dan­de­nong res­tau­rant and in­side the Puff­ing Billy car­riage in the Dan­de­nongs where he had been sleep­ing.

In a vic­tim im­pact state­ment ten­dered to the court but not read out, the girl in­di­cated she was afraid of Walk­ley.

The court heard the Of­fice of Public Pros­e­cu­tions did not op­pose Walk­ley be­ing given a jail sen­tence of un­der two years, which would al­low the judge not to in­ter­fere with his ex­ist­ing non-pa­role pe­riod of six years for the blade of­fences.

Judge Jane Pa­trick could rule that some of her sen­tence be served ac­cu­mu­la­tively, mean­ing Walk­ley would need to serve ad­di­tional jail time af­ter be­ing granted pa­role.

Walk­ley is then likely to be ex­tra­dited to NSW and jailed for breach­ing his pa­role con­di­tions there.

The court heard Walk­ley had a dis­grace­ful crim­i­nal history dat­ing back to his child­hood. Judge Pa­trick will sen­tence him in Septem­ber.

Two years ago, the Supreme Court heard that Walk­ley’s blade vic­tim was left per­ma­nently scarred af­ter he was at­tacked in a North Mel­bourne unit by the sex of­fender and two mates in Oc­to­ber 2012.

The 35-year-old vic­tim was at­tacked af­ter a friend of Walk­ley al­leged he owed her drugs cash.

He was tied up with leather belts, stabbed re­peat­edly, had his left nip­ple ripped off and also had the words “dog” and “rat” cut into his back.

The court heard that a ra­dio was turned on and a tea towel was shoved in his mouth to muf­fle his screams.

His hair was burnt and face singed by a cig­a­rette lighter, and his gen­i­tals were burned.

The next day his wounds were splashed with dis­in­fec­tant be­fore he was al­lowed to leave the North Mel­bourne flat where he had been held.

A passer-by found him cry­ing and called for help.
