Convicted rapist Shaun Plunkett tried to burn victim’s house down while on bail

A Western Australian man convicted of sexually assaulting a woman tried to burn down the victim’s house while on bail for the attack, a court has heard.

Shaun Henry Plunkett was found guilty of the assault, which took place in September 2016, after a two-day trial in the Kalgoorlie District Court this week.

The 27-year-old is already serving a four-year, eight-month jail term for the March 2017 arson, having pleaded guilty in the Supreme Court last December.

Judge John Staude sentenced Plunkett to a further two years’ jail today for the sexual assault.

After the jury delivered its verdict, Prosecutor Fiona Clare revealed Plunkett had attempted to burn down the woman’s house, where he had sexually assaulted her.

“He’s committed a serious arson offence against the same victim,” Ms Clare told the court.

“There’s no indication of remorse in this case.”

No consent given: Judge

During the trial, the court was told Plunkett had drunk more than 20 beers and half a bottle of vodka before walking to the woman’s home.

There he spent several hours drinking, with the woman rejecting his advances when he attempted to kiss her.

Despite this, the woman allowed him to sleep in her bed, only to wake to find him sexually assaulting her.

Sentencing Plunkett today, Judge Staude said a grievous breach of trust had been committed against the victim.

He said the 27-year-old’s drunken state did not excuse his actions.

“You were not mistaken, you did not believe [the woman] consented to sexual penetration,” Judge Staude said.

“You knew sex with [the victim] was out of the question.

“This was a vulnerable woman who trusted you and took you into her home that night.”

While Plunkett’s lawyer Wendy Hughes argued the sex was consensual, the prosecution said it was a clear-cut case of assault.

“Letting someone into your bed is not the same as letting someone sleep with you,” Ms Clare said.

Drug, alcohol abuse triggered psychotic symptoms

Plunkett followed up his initial arrest on the sexual assault charge with a string of arson attacks around Norseman in March last year.

In attacks unconnected to the sexual assault, he burned one property to the ground and severely damaged another.

At the victim’s house, he set a doormat on fire in what Judge Staude said was a clear attempt at harming her.

“You believed [the victim] was asleep inside,” he said.

During his sentencing for arson in December, the Supreme Court was told regular drug and alcohol abuse had led to Plunkett being hospitalised with psychotic symptoms.

A court-ordered psychiatric assessment saw him diagnosed with antisocial personality disorder and anger management issues.

But Judge Staude also said the 27-year-old’s behaviour had improved after his access to drugs was removed in prison.

Plunkett will be eligible for parole after four years and eight months.
