A REGISTERED sex offender, who indecently assaulted a 12-year-old girl and failed to comply with the Sex Offenders Register, has been jailed for 18 months.

Raymond Dean was ordered to serve nine months before being eligible for parole but was later released after lodging an appeal against his sentence.

Dean, 50, of Long Gully, Bendigo, pleaded guilty in Geelong Magistrates’ Court yesterday to charges of indecently assaulting a child under 16 and failing to comply with the Sex Offenders Register.

Police prosecutor Sergeant Glenn Abbott said that in 2012 Dean was temporarily staying at the victim’s home.

“The victim was asleep in her bedroom one evening when she woke to find Dean squeezing her breasts,” he said. “The victim told him to get out and he left.

Sgt Abbott said that, later the same night, the girl woke to find Dean had returned to her room and was kissing her on the lips.

“Again she told him to get out,” the prosecutor said. “On another occasion the victim went to sleep on the couch in the lounge room and woke to find Dean’s hand up her top, rubbing her back.”

The prosecutor said the victim told her mother, who came into the room and sat with them for a while before going back to bed.

“The victim said she felt sickened by Dean’s behaviour,” he said.

Sgt Abbott said Dean, who has been on the Sex Offenders Register since 2010, failed to disclose to police, that he was living in a house where children were present and that he had purchased another car.

Chris Terry, for Dean, said his client had priors for indecent assault and failing to comply with the Sex Offenders Register.

Mr Terry said Dean was a chronic alcoholic, that all the adults in the house at that time were heavy drinkers and he had little memory of events.

Magistrate Ian von Einem convicted Dean on both counts and sentenced him to 18 months in jail with a non-parole period of nine months.

  1. Another re offender, are they ever going to learn? Now that this RE OFFENDER has appealed I suggest he gets 5 to 10 years inside prison without parole and set a precedence for future re offenders, come on for Gods sake do something and even make history to show we mean business!!
