High-profile Geelong doctor Alexander Black avoids jail over child abuse material

Updated

The former head of cardiology at Geelong Hospital has avoided jail after pleading guilty to possessing more than 100 child exploitation files.

Police found Alexander Black, 59, in possession of 45 images and 67 videos depicting child exploitation in December 2013, after a visitor to the hospital’s birthing unit found a USB on the floor containing the illegal images.

Black resigned from his position and last month he pleaded guilty to two counts of possessing child exploitation material.

In sentencing, Magistrate Michael Coghlan said it was appropriate that Black avoids prison because of his low risk of reoffending, his age, his early guilty plea and his ongoing psychiatric treatment.

He said the high-profile doctor’s “fall from grace” was significant.

The court heard Black was sexually abused when he was 10 or 11-years-old and he gave evidence at the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sex Abuse in November 2013.

A psychologist told the court Black identified with the children in the illegal images.

Magistrate Coghlan said Black should have understood the gravity of his crimes.

“Surely he must have appreciated the persons depicted in the child exploitation material were also victims, just as he was as a young boy,” he said.

Black will have a conviction recorded, he will participate in a community corrections program and he will have to report to police for 15 years.

Magistrate Coghlan also ordered Black pay $20,000 to a sex abuse prevention program that works with high school students in the Geelong region.

“In my view that would assist the local community and ensure young people can avoid the risk of being victims of sexual abuse themselves,” he said.

Black’s lawyer Rob Stary told the court his client still has a lot to offer if he can return to work.

“This is a man who’s made a substantial contribution to the community,” he said.

The court heard the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency has heard about the charges and will continue to review the case.
