Jail for child sex abuser who fled

ANDREW DOWDELL, COURT REPORTER

A CHILD molester who fled during his trial and was on the run for almost three years has been jailed by a District Court judge.

Allan James Hunt, 44, was found guilty by a jury of four counts of indecent assault and one count of unlawful sexual intercourse against an eight-year old girl in 2003.

When the jury retired to consider its verdict, Hunt fled the state and was not recaptured until March this year at Maryborough in country Victoria.

The court heard Hunt had formed a new relationship there with a woman who had two young daughters.

Hunt’s new partner and her children wrote him references and the court heard there were no allegations he had behaved inappropriately against them.

Hunt’s partner was in court today as Hunt was sentenced to a total of five years prison.

Chief Judge Terry Worthington said Hunt had performed a sex act on the eight-year-old at the child’s grandmother’s house.

“It is clear from the victim’s statement that she suffers greatly for what has happened and her grandmother is also shattered that it happened under her care,” he said.

“You abused this child for your own sexual gratification … what you did was a gross breach of trust.”

With time already served on remand, Hunt will be eligible for parole in two years and four months.
