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.
