Wife catches husband with sick child abuse material

Richard Noone, Central Coast Gosford Express Advocate

March 21, 2017 9:35am

A FORMER IBM worker of 40 years was given an eight-month suspended jail sentence last week after his wife caught him reading a website containing stories about bestiality, incest and sex with children.

Noel Ross Cawthorne, of Tumbi Umbi, was in his back shed in 2015 looking at computers when his wife went to check on him.

The 66-year-old quickly minimised the screen but his suspicious wife took note of the web address which she later punched into Google on her phone.

She was shocked to discover the vile contents of the website and the following day she sprung him again in the back shed, this time with a text document open.

Facts tendered to Wyong Local Court revealed she read the document and “saw it was a story about having sex with a five-year-old child”.

When she confronted him about the filth he said, “I have just been looking at porn to help get interested” before leaving the house.

His wife rang police who attended the house about 10.30am on March 4 where she gave them permission to seize computer equipment including an IBM ThinkPad laptop, an IBM ThinkCentre PC and memory drives.

After extensive forensic analysis by the Police State Electronic Evidence Branch, officers uncovered 31 literature files of child abuse material on the laptop including one story rated a “category five” in the Child Exploitation Tracking System (CETS) scale.

Material classified as category five includes stories, picture or video depicting sadism, bestiality, and sexual imagery involving pain, humiliation or animals.

The PC contained 26 literature files including 22 classified as “category four” on the CETS scale (sexual assault of children).

Police also found 39 literature files on a USB stick and 37 on an external hard drive.

Cawthorne, who was listed in police facts as having “thorough knowledge of computers, working for IBM for over 40 years”, pleaded guilty to four counts of possessing child abuse material.

The prosecution conceded a lot of the literature files were duplicated across the devices.

Cawthorne was given an eight-month suspended jail sentence when he appeared in court last Wednesday and was ordered to be of good behaviour.

Paedophile paramedic sentenced to 13 years’ jail for sexual abuse of 22 girls across three states

By Isobel Roe

Updated 5 May 2017, 6:28pm

A former Queensland ambulance officer has been sentenced to 13 years in jail for “depraved” sexual abuse of 22 young girls across several states over a 10-year period.

The victims of 49-year-old Jason David Brooker were in Queensland, New South Wales and Victoria, with the youngest being 11 years old.

Brooker, who was between 38 and 47 years of age at the time of offending, contacted young girls via social media sites Kik, Tagged and Facebook using the name ‘Jaz’, ‘David Bourne’ or ‘David Brook’.

In the District Court in Toowoomba on Tuesday, Brooker pleaded guilty to 57 charges, including maintaining a relationship with a child under 16, carnal knowledge, indecent treatment and making and possessing child exploitation material.

The offending was carried out from Brooker’s home in Warwick on Queensland’s Southern Downs between 2005 and 2015, when one victim raised the alarm and police raided his property.

The court heard Brooker often paid for mobile phone credit for the young girls or offered to “get them into modelling” in exchange for naked photographs, and threatened to release the photos on the internet if the girls did not comply with requests for more explicit material.

Offender videoed sex with 14yo girl

Crown prosecutor Elizabeth Kelso told the court the most serious offending was involving a 14-year-old girl, who he lured via social media pretending to be a 16-year-old boy.

After several webcam chats where Brooker asked the girl to take off her clothes, the pair met multiple times including at a park and a hotel in the Brisbane suburb of Brookside.

Ms Kelso told the court the girl had not told her parents where she was going.

“[Brooker] filmed some of those interactions,” Ms Kelso said.

“In that footage he can be seen undressing the complainant.”

The pair then had sexual intercourse, which was also recorded on video.

‘I was made to feel like a disgusting human being’

During police raids of Brooker’s Warwick home in 2015, officers found a disc containing 83 photos of the girl in states of undress.

The court was read a victim impact statement from that girl, who is now an adult.

“[I] feel sick because of the visual memories,” the statement read.

“I feared for my life and my family’s too — I was made to feel like a disgusting human being.”

Ms Kelso said Brooker would request naked pictures and send pictures of his own genitalia to other girls.

The victims often found out the person they were talking to was not a 16-year-old boy when Brooker turned on his own webcam.

Ms Kelso said Brooker would often tell his victims he loved. If they refused his advances, he would threaten the victims with knowing where they lived.

“If the complainants became reluctant or started to ignore the defendant, he became angry,” she said.

“Where he had provided them money, he would tell them he felt he’d been ripped off.”

Ms Kelso said the most disturbing thing about Brooker’s conduct was the “meticulous” nature of the thousands of photos and videos in his child exploitation collection, found during the police raids.

Some of the exploitation material was of children as young as three years old.

“Not only was is stored electronically, it was also stored on CDs identified with the girls name, age and locations,” Ms Kelso said.

The raids also uncovered stolen prescription drugs and uniforms from the Queensland Ambulance Service (QAS).

Brooker left the QAS during the 10 years of offending and began to work for a private firm as a paramedic.

Offender wrote apology letter, court told

Brooker’s defence lawyer David Jones told the court his client had not shared any of the child exploitation material he created.

He said Brooker’s conduct was largely inexplicable, but he had written a letter of apology and was on the road to rehabilitation.

In sentencing, Judge Deborah Richards told the court one incident involved threatening a young child with harm.

“You said: ‘If you don’t send me nudes I’ll track down your address and hurt your family’ — she was 11 years old,” the judge said.

Judge Richards said Brooker offended with the hope of having each of the girls have sex with him.

“You did make admissions … but downplayed the criminality of your actions on many occasions,” she said.

“This was persistent, depraved behaviour over a long period of time.”

Judge Deborah Richards chose not to label Brooker a serious violent offender.

He will be eligible to apply for parole in January 2021, six years after he was taken into custody.

Community supervision order extended for convicted child sex offender Aaron David Vincent

Shannon Tonkin
2 Jul 2017, 3:34 p.m.

A convicted child sexual predator who told a psychologist he planned to prey on children again as soon as he was released from jail will have his every move monitored by Corrective Services for the next five years.

NSW Supreme Court judge Justice Ian Harrison on Friday ordered Wollongong man Aaron David Vincent be subject to a five-year extended supervision order after finding he had a “chronic and permanent” attraction to children that made the chance of him committing further serious sex offences “inevitable”.

Under the order, Vincent will have to adhere to 55 conditions including wearing an ankle monitor, providing a weekly schedule of movements, not attend places where children congregate and undergoing drug and alcohol testing.

He will also have his social media use monitored and he’s been banned from changing his name or appearance without consent from his supervising officer.

Vincent’s history of inappropriate sexual behaviour and comments stems back to the mid-2000s when he told a woman he was talking to online that he had sexually assaulted female relatives. He later told investigating police it was “just a joke”.

However, Vincent’s behaviour escalated from there: in 2009 told a woman he’d contacted in an internet chat room that he had abused girls as young as two years old, while in 2011 he was convicted of possessing child pornography.

He was sentenced to short jail terms on both occasions.

His most serious offence to date occurred in March 2014 when he had sex with an underage girl in his Wollongong apartment.

Judge Paul Conlon jailed Vincent 15 months but he was released on parole after 10 months. He has since committed further crimes, including violating orders banning him from being near children.

He is currently behind bars after being arrested on May 29 for further contraventions of court orders.

Justice Harrison said Vincent’s criminal history showed a “pattern of offending”, however he also expressed considerable concern about what Vincent himself had told psychologists and telephone help lines about his intentions towards children when released.

The court heard Vincent had contacted help lines in the past and falsely “disclosed” sexual offences he’d committed against children. On each occasion he would masturbate while making the disclosures.

Vincent also told psychologists he was “unable to change his behaviour” and would act on his urges, telling one doctor “I don’t know what I would do if I was left alone in a room with [female] children”.

Justice Harrison acknowledged that Vincent was willing to try anti-libido medicine but said the outlook for any sort of recovery was bleak.

“I am unable presently to foresee a time when the risk that Mr Vincent will commit a further serious sex offence will not be present,” he said.

“I can’t ignore the fact that Mr Vincent has acknowledged himself that there is a real risk if he is left alone with a female child.

“I consider that Mr Vincent’s risk risk can be managed but it can never be eradicated.”

Extended supervision order conditions for Aaron Vincent:

*Electronic monitoring

*Weekly schedule of movements (not to be changed with supervising officer’s permission)

*Live at an approved address and abide by nighttime curfew

*No visitors or overnight guests without prior approval from Corrective Services

*Banned from attending cinemas, schools, theme parks, concerts, sport playing fields, pools, caravan parks or anywhere else children congregate

*Banned from adult shops where sexually explicit material or entertainment is sold

*No job, volunteer work or educational course without prior approval

*Regular random drug and alcohol testing

*No contact with anyone under 18 unless approved by supervising officer

*Inform supervising officer if any any intimate relationship begins

*Provide a list of all internet accounts and devices used to access them

*Consent to body searches

*Not to change name or appearance without approval from supervising officer

*Surrender any travel documents including passport

*Attend all rehabilitation programs and courses directed by supervising officer

*Non-association with people consuming or under the influence of illegal drugs

Wollongong child sex offender Aaron David Vincent likely to be freed

By MICHELLE WEBSTER

Feb. 25, 2015, 9 p.m.

A convicted child sex offender who confessed to having sex with an under-age girl in his Wollongong apartment will be eligible for release from jail later this week.

Aaron David Vincent, 28, pleaded guilty in Port Kembla Local Court last year to one count of having sex with a child aged 14 to 16 years, stemming from a sexual encounter he had with a 15-year-old girl in March 2014.

During sentencing procedures in Sutherland District Court on Wednesday, the court heard Vincent and the girl had agreed to “hang out” during the weekend of March 24 and at one point went to his Victoria Street unit.

They began kissing and had consensual sex.

The following day, Vincent detailed the sexual encounter to a Lifeline counsellor via an internet chat forum, and the matter was referred to police.

Although the victim initially refused to assist with the investigation, she eventually provided a statement to police at the end of April, leading to Vincent’s arrest.

Vincent pleaded guilty in Port Kembla Local Court last November to a charge of under-age sex.

The court also heard Vincent had been placed on the child protection register after he was caught with child pornography in South Australia in 2011.

In sentencing Vincent on Wednesday, Judge Paul Conlon said the offending was at the lower end of the scale and he had shown contrition for his actions.

“The way in which he has disclosed his offending conduct is an indication of the guilt he felt for his conduct,” he told the court.

He was sentenced to a non-parole period of 10 months and with time served will be eligible for release on February 28. Judge Conlon imposed an additional five-month supervised parole period.

UPDATE:  JULY 2017

Shen has been given a three-year jail term. He will be in jail until at least July 26, 2020.

Massage victims sickened

15 May 2017, 5 p.m.

A CHINESE masseur who sexually assaulted 14 female customers abused one of the women in front of her young daughter and another in front of her son.

Many of Xiawen Shen’s victims told police they felt scared, sick, and unable to ask the 45-year-old to stop the abuse.

Shen, who also calls himself “Jack”, has admitted to indecently assaulting the women between February 2016 to January.

The Chinese national begged one of the victims not to report him to the police.

He told the woman he was sorry after rubbing her breasts and groin last March, but then told her she should “relax and enjoy the good things in life”.

“I’m very sorry,” he told her.

“I have never done anything like this before.

“I really like you”.

During one of the assaults, at the Royal Hands Chinese Massage in West End Plaza last November, Shen told a woman that she should eat more Chinese food before rubbing his hands near her vagina.

He then offered to attend her home, cook for her, and asked for her address.

She later told police she was “tense, scared, and hated the entire massage.”

The following month, Shen spoke quietly in hushed tones to another woman before brushing his penis on her hand and grinding his crotch into her arm and rubbing his hands up her thighs.

Other women had their genitals rubbed after Shen told them to remove their underwear.

He held one woman down using his body weight.

The 45-year-old offered to perform sexual acts on one of the customers, and she repeatedly declined.

He would later claim the woman had wanted him to touch her, and claimed she had enjoyed it, but agreed it was inappropriate and unprofessional.

Most incidents occurred at the Royal Hands, but some occurred at Balance Chinese Massage in the Albury Myer shopping centre.

In most cases, Shen had asked the women to strip to their underwear

The incidents came to an end when his last victim reported Shen after he pulled down her underwear and rubbed his hands near her groin.

Shen was charged and more victims came forward to report similar experiences.

He was banned from performing any form of massage.

He faced the Albury Local Court on Monday and will be sentenced on July 27.

UPATE:  JULY 2017

Lester ‘Sooty’ Mills has been sentenced in Wollongong District Court to almost three years jail. He will be required to serve half his sentence before he is eligible for release on parole in October 2018.

Former Fourth Reich bikie Lester Mills confesses to sexual abuse of underage girl

Shannon Tonkin
1 May 2017, 5:55 p.m.

A Brownsville man who indecently assaulted an underage girl at his home in 2015 has been identified in court as Lester ‘Sooty’ Mills, a convicted paedophile and former member of the Fourth Reich outlaw motorcycle gang.

Mills, a long time associate of the Albion Park-based club, touched the girl’s genitals then video-taped her in her school uniform one afternoon in September 2015 when she was at his house with a family member.

He also put $100 on the kitchen table and told the girl he’d give it to her if she came back to the house on another day and “stayed for an hour”.

The girl disclosed the incident to her family that afternoon and the incident was reported to police. Mills was arrested and charged the following day.

His criminal history reveals it was the second time Mills had abused underage children. In the early 2000s, he was sentenced to three years’ jail for similar offences against a child under the age of 10.

Meantime, a month after Mills’ 2015 arrest, specialist police carried out a controversial raid on the Fourth Reich’s Albion Park headquarters during a charity bike show in which officers were recorded telling people they were supporting a club that “has members that sexually assault kids”.

Club lawyer Bill Whitby confirmed that the club had stripped Mills of his membership after the 2015 charges were laid.

Mills had been due to stand trial on those charges in Wollongong District Court this week, however entered pleas of guilty on Monday morning.

He did not oppose a Crown application to revoke his bail, with his lawyer saying her client conceded he would be facing full-time prison when he is sentenced on July 7.

Forde – William Craig

Rape victim wins $139K compensation

Updated 17 Jan 2008, 4:54pm

A County Count judge has ordered a convicted rapist to pay more than $139,000 compensation to his victim.

50-year-old William Craig Forde was sentenced to an indefinite term in jail last year.

The court was told he kidnapped a woman identified as “Jessica” in Ballarat in 2006.

He held her captive in her car for almost 30 hours and repeatedly raped her.

Judge Tom Wodak said he accepted “Jessica” suffered Post Traumatic Stress Disorder as a result of the attack.

Despite being ordered to pay compensation, Forde may not be able to pay the full amount.

His only asset is a rural block of land, that may have to be sold to pay his legal fees.

His prison term will be reviewed in 16 years.

Jessica’s lawyer Katalin Blond says now the compensation order has been made, steps have to be taken to enforce it.

“Jess is grateful in the acknowledgment of the court’s judgement but understands that there’s certainly a long road ahead in enforcing that judgement,” she said.

“I would imagine that that issue probably won’t be resolved for at least 12 months.”

Court gives life term to ‘depraved’ rapist

Updated 13 Dec 2006, 3:03pm

A man who repeatedly raped a woman from Ballarat, in central Victoria, will spend the rest of his life in jail.

The 29-year-old woman was kidnapped and raped at knife-point over a 30 hour period in February, in at attack Detective Paul Jolly of Ballarat police says is the worst he has seen in 24 years.

“This would have to be the nastiest incident I’ve dealt with,” he said.

William Craig Forde, 49, was today sentenced in the County Court in Ballarat to an indefinite jail term.

Judge Wodak said the offences were of a gravity rarely seen, and Forde showed little potential for reform.

The victim described Forde as an animal.

“As much as you can characterise somebody like this, then that’s the way to say it, depraved, deviant,” she said.

She says she will try to use her experience to help other rape victims.
