A Tasmanian car salesman will not be placed on a list of child sex offenders despite being jailed for crimes dating back more than 30 years.

Jervis Mitchell Holloway performed sexual acts on two boys aged between 14 and 16 during the late 1970s and early 1980s.

He was between 26 to 29 at the time.

The now 60-year-old pleaded guilty in the Supreme Court in Hobart to two counts of maintaining a sexual relationship with persons under 17 years of age.

In sentencing, Justice David Porter noted the age disparity at the time was not great but that it was a significant period of offending.

Holloway was sentenced to three and a half years jail.

He will be eligible for parole after serving 16 months.

Justice Porter said Holloway does not pose a risk to the community and will not be placed on the sex offenders register.

Man admits child-sex offences

A 60-YEAR-OLD Hobart man has been remanded in custody after pleading guilty to two counts of maintaining a sexual relationship with a person under the age of 17.

The crimes occurred more than 30 years ago.

Car salesman Jervis Mitchell Holloway yesterday faced court over a string of sex acts he performed with two young men between 1978 and 1982. The complainants were 14 and 16.

Both from sheltered Seventh Day Adventist families, the teens had no sexual experience before their relationships with Holloway who was a decade older than them.

Both teenagers were impressed by the lifestyle of alcohol, parties and go-cart racing Holloway offered.

The accused, then aged 26, came across his first victim when driving along the Channel Highway.

The teen had been dropped off on the side of the road by his mother after an argument and was hitch-hiking. The accused spotted the 16-year-old and offered to take care of him.

Later that day Holloway initiated a sexual act in his bedroom and the inexperienced victim complied.

The court heard the pair engaged in regular sex acts over the next three years.

Defence lawyer David Gunson SC said the pair had maintained a close relationship until the complainant went to police last year.

The second teen had been introduced to Holloway by the first complainant and participated in a sexual relationship.

“These boys lacked maturity, that naivety would have been something the accused could have quite readily taken advantage of,” prosecutor Linda Mason told the court.

Mr Gunson said his client had led an industrious life and emphasised both teens had been willing participants aside from being under-age.

Justice David Porter will pass sentence on August 7.

    What Jervis Holloway did was a stupid thing to do and was wrong.
    But back in the late 70s and early 80s how were gay people accepted? They weren’t.
    It disguts me that Jervis Holloway is even on this ‘Aussie Paedophiles’ website when it has been said that he won’t be put on the sex offenders list because he poses no threat to the community.
