He quit after questioning from the Herald Sun.



Location: Footscray / Kinglake West / VIC

Offence: Murray was convicted in 1991 of three counts of indecent assault and one of supplying liquor to a minor.

Sentence: He was sentenced in the Preston Magistrates’ Court, to six months’ jail for the assaults and fined $400 for the liquor offences.

Other: Murray worked in a Footscray Comic shop. He has also worked as a basketball coach and a youth camp co-ordinator. He was a field officer for Church of England Boys Society in the 1980’s.

Convicted pedophile running Melbourne toy shop

A man who served a jail sentence for child sexual assault is reportedly working in a Melbourne toy store after exploiting a loophole in Victoria’s child protection laws.

Stephen Maxwell Murray, who has three convictions for indecently assaulting underage boys, is running Animasia, a comics, games and toy store in Carlton, News Corp has reported.

Murray has been in charge of Animasia for several years, running model-making workshops and competitions for children and teens.

He is not breaking any laws, as there is no requirement for people working in child-focused retail to qualify for a working with children permit.

However, Attorney-General Martin Pakula has pledged to look into reforming the system to close that loophole.

“Like any parent I’m extremely concerned at the prospect of this happening,” he said.

Murray had previously worked at another Melbourne comics store, The Crypt, but was fired a decade ago when his past came to light.

The owner, Carmel Barbara, said at the time she wanted to “give (Murray) a chance”.

However, a fierce public outcry forced her to terminate his employment.

He was convicted in 1991 of three counts of indecent assault and one count of supplying liquor to a minor, and received a six-month jail sentence, the Daily Mail has reported.
