Former Scout leader who ‘abused trust’ 

sentenced to six years’ jail for child sexual abuse

Posted 3 Feb 2015, 4:46pm

A former Scout leader has been sentenced to six years’ jail after pleading guilty to sexually abusing children

in the late 1970s and 80s.

Christopher Edmondson, 59, admitted abusing four siblings, their cousin and his step-daughter on multiple

occasions between 1979 and 1987 when he was an assistant Scout leader at Warrandyte.

The Victorian County Court was told that Edmondson befriended one boy and was welcomed into the family

home, where he was trusted to babysit the children and stay the night.

The victims were aged between seven and 15 years old.

In sentencing, Judge Bill Stuart told Edmondson “it was a frightening aspect that you sexually abused all four

siblings, both male and female”.

“You were a grown man. You were trusted. Time and time again you abused that trust,” he said.

Edmondson has also served six years in jail in Queensland for sexually abusing another three boys and has

undergone several sexual offenders programs.

Judge Stuart said he “accepted with some hesitation” that Edmondson was remorseful and at low risk of

re-offending.

He sentenced him to six years and one month in prison and noted that he “had a terrible time” in prison

in Queensland.

  1. Who cares if he had a terrible time in prison? In the words of the prophet, “tough shit”. The effect of abuse on children by an adult has far reaching and tragic consequences in later life. Loss of self esteem, unjustified feelings of guilt, alcoholism, despair, loss of faith. Inability to maintain healthy relationships. I heard a victim of so called priest Gerard Ridsdale interviewed on ABC after the Royal Commission (repeatedly buggered by Ridsdale as a child). He said of 55 pupils in grade 5 St Alpius, 12 committed suicide in later life. We are not discussing consenting adults here. It is manipulation and rape.

    He had a terrible time in prison? How horrible for him.

    Meanwhile I’m still here working through the issues this man has caused. Chris, you were released far too soon. You should have been left to rot in solitary confinement for the rest of your miserable life.

    I don’t even know why I looked this up tonight. I wonder how different my life would have been had he not been around.

    Fuck you, Chris.
    Sincerely,
    A victim

      This guy stayed with our family and lied about his reason in jail. I feel ill at the thought my nephew and niece were around him. For some reason i decided to type his name up and i lost it. I need to know more information about him and what he did. Yes he was good with the legal system and knew how to manipulate the family. Im disgusted and ashamed that we got to know him.
