Sex offender sentenced


11 Mar, 2011 04:00 AM

A WARRNAMBOOL man with an intellectual disability has been placed on a five-year intensive residential treatment order after pleading guilty to sex offences.

Timothy Stephen Leishman, 30, of Fairy Street, appeared in the Warrnambool County Court on five charges and pleaded guilty during October last year to one charge of committing an indecent act with a child under 16 and four counts of sexual penetration of a child under 16.

He was remanded in custody while reports were prepared with respect to his suitability for a treatment order in a facility of incarceration, treatment and rehabilitation for sex offenders with intellectual disabilities.

Mr Leishman has two prior convictions for indecent assault among a long history of offending.

On February 22 this year he was sentenced after County Court Judge David Parsons received reports.

Mr Leishman pleaded guilty to five charges, including sexual penetration of a child aged under 16 years, which came out of incidents in the Camperdown district during February last year.

The court heard Leishman moved to Warrnambool in 1995 and went to the special development school before attending TAFE in 1998 where he was involved in damaging a lift which cost thousands of dollars to repair.

He has since worked on variety of jobs including fruit picking, milking, motor wrecking and cutting firewood.

He also has seven children with five different women.

He has been classified as having an intellectual disability and has also been registered as a sex offender for life.

Experts assessed him as currently presenting a serious risk of violence to another person.
