Jeffrey Rosenstrauss jailed for indecent assault of a child

AN Eastern Suburbs businessman, Jeffrey Stanley Rosenstrauss, was sentenced to three years in prison in the District Court on Friday, February 18, on four counts of indecent assault against a child under the age of 16.

Mr Rosenstrauss’s sentence included a non-parole period of two years.

Mr Rosenstrauss, who pleaded guilty, was accused of perpetrating the assaults between May 1975 and May 1981.

In the first incident, he assaulted the victim, who was a family friend, while walking through a school ground with her.

In the second incident, he assaulted her in the back of a Kombi van.

The third incident occurred in the bedroom of Mr Rosenstrauss’s daughters, and a later incident occurred at a Bondi squash club.

Mr Rosenstrauss told the court he was a property valuer who did ­volunteer work helping administer the Rebecca L Cooper Medical Research Foundation and was also the secretary of the Eastern Suburbs Motor Cycle Club.

The age of the victim at the time the incidents occurred was disputed, with the victim claiming she was between five and six years old at the time and Mr Rosenstrauss claiming she was closer to nine or 10.

Evidence was given that when the victim reported the abuse to the police in June 2009, they arranged for her to make a set of telephone calls to Mr Rosenstrauss, who immediately admitted the offences.

Judge Peter Berman questioned whether Mr Rosenstrauss would have been able to achieve a lifetime of work and service to the medical foundation if his offences had been known to the community.

The victim told the Wentworth Courier she was relieved the case was over and Mr Rosenstrauss had been sent to prison.

“It doesn’t change my life, but I feel justice has been served,” she said.

She said the assaults had an impact on her life and in her twenties she had left Sydney to live overseas so she could distance herself from the experience.

    I do not understand how this man still has a real estate office (Rosen & Co) business in Bondi with the help of his daughter as he does not hold a license to be managing strata titles. They have recently signed a contract with the church in glebe point road that will be a kindergarten.
    Unfortunately I had to work there and whilst working there I also got slapped on the ass which was before I knew that Jeff was a sex offender and unfortunately there were no witnesses.
    This makes me sick as I can not understand how these people are protected especially when they ruin other peoples lives and only get a couple of years jail then let out free to offend and ruin peoples lives.
    This man should not be allowed in the public or any where near children.

    Jeff Rosenstrauss now goes under the name of Jeff Rosen.

    Why do people like this still be allowed into the public arena.

    He gets ‘just two years’ and the poor victim bares the scars for life from his evil actions.

    Has anyone investigated the so called charity he and his family looks after?

    Has anyone investigated an improper sale of land he administered that was owned by a club he was secretary for?

    Now he has changed his name to Jeff Rosen to hide from his past doings.

    Time will catch up with him and when it does…..lookout to all who believed in him.
