A Canberra man who was found guilty of committing an act of indecency on a young girl, will serve at least six months in jail.

Liam Taylor from Chisholm had offered to look after his friend’s young children and was playing hide and seek with them when he committed an act of indecency on a girl aged four or five.

He was also charged with committing indecent acts on two other young girls, but he was acquitted of those charges after a trial last year.

Chief Justice Terence Higgins said the young girl’s evidence was chillingly persuasive, while Taylor was entirely unpersuasive.

Chief Justice Higgins sentenced Taylor to 18 months imprisonment, with 12 months fully suspended and a four year good behaviour order.

Outside the court, the girl’s mother said it was not over for her daughter because she still has to deal with it.

The girl said, she has got her smile back.

Victim’s evidence ‘chillingly persuasive’

A 33-year-old Canberra man has been found guilty of committing an act of indecency on a young girl.

Liam Taylor from Chisholm was accused of committing acts of indecency on three girls, who were aged from four to nine years old, between August 2005 and March 2008.

Chief Justice Terence Higgins acquitted Taylor of three counts of indecency against the two older girls, saying there was insufficient evidence.

But a conviction was recorded in the case of the youngest complainant, who was aged four or five at the time.

Chief Justice Higgins told the ACT Supreme Court, he found the way the child had given her evidence “chillingly persuasive” and said he had no hesitation in rejecting Taylor’s denials.

Bail was continued, on conditions including that Taylor stay away from preschools, schools and colleges in the ACT.

He will be sentenced on February 7, 2011.
