Teacher sentenced for series of sexual offences

A 57-year-old man has today, Tuesday 22 August 2017, been sentenced in connection with a number of child sex offences.

Glyn Barrington Jones, formerly of Major Mitchell Drive, Brisbane, Australia, was charged in January 2016 by officers from Norfolk Constabulary’s Children Abuse Investigation Unit, with 13 offences including 11 counts of indecent assault and two of attempted indecent assault.

Jones pleaded guilty yesterday (Monday 21 August 2017) to seven of the indecent assaults. The other offences will remain on file.

The assaults started while he was a trainee and also took place while he was in post as a Physical Education teacher in Norfolk and Devon.  The offences he was convicted of relate to six female victims  and were committed between 1979 and 1996.  All the victims were aged 16 or under at the time.

When sentencing Jones to five years in prison, Judge Anthony Bate described his offences as having “an enduring impact” on the victims with Jones continuing to lead an “outwardly respectable life as a man of apparent good character” while in fact being a “clandestine sex offender since age of 19.”

Following today’s Norwich Crown Court appearance, Detective Constable Kim Taylor who headed the investigation, said: “Jones took complete advantage of his position of trust to encourage his victims to allow him to carry out sex offences having persuaded them that he was in an emotional relationship with them.

“I want to thank all the victims involved in this investigation for their bravery and patience while this case came to court.  Although by pleading guilty, he has prevented the victims from having to relive their ordeal through a trial, they should not have been in this position in the first place.

“This enquiry highlights how important we consider all allegations of abuse , non recent or current and should assure other victims of abuse that every report is fully investigated by Norfolk Constabulary, with specialist officers guiding victims through the process.”

Jones was also placed on the Sex Offenders Register for life.

Qld child abuser must wear tracker: judge

Christine Flatley, AAP March 26, 2013, 2:24 pm

A man who repeatedly abused children over a 20-year period has failed to convince a court he should have his monitoring anklet removed.

Kevin Michael Loudon was released from jail in 2007 on a strict community-based supervision order after serving multiple lengthy sentences for raping and abusing young boys and girls in far north Queensland.

He breached the supervision order in 2009 and was released back into the community on the provision he wear a GPS tracking device and abide by a curfew.

Late last year lawyers acting for Loudon wrote to Queensland Corrective Services asking that the device and curfew requirements be removed from the order.

Through his lawyers, Loudon argued the anklet caused him stress and anxiety because he couldn’t conceal it easily when in public.

He also argued his good behaviour warranted a relaxation in his restrictions.

However in a written judgment published on Tuesday, Brisbane Supreme Court Justice Martin Daubney disagreed, ruling Loudon was still a risk to the community.

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.

Teacher banned for cyber ‘game’

A TEACHER who made an avatar – a computer alter ego – to interact inappropriately with a 12-year-old in a virtual world has been deregistered and banned for reapplying for four years.

Gregory Stark, 44, was also found by the Queensland Civil and Administrative Tribunal (QCAT) to have hugged and kissed the student inappropriately, sent her inappropriate text messages including one saying, “I love you so much it hurts”, and given her presents including mobile phone credit, CDs and poems.

In a written decision QCAT stated the student gave evidence Mr Stark’s avatar “engaged in sexualised behaviour with her avatar”.

“When questioned about this, Mr Stark was evasive; he consistently claimed he “did not know” whether his avatar was capable of such behaviour,” the written decision stated.

The tribunal also found he had encouraged the student to use a webcam when she was interacting online with him.

“The tribunal considers that the behaviour of Mr Stark is very serious,” QCAT wrote.

“He has admitted that he wanted his relationship with the student to continue after she left school.

“He accessed school records to obtain her home telephone number and address and visited the student at home during the holidays.

“He discouraged the student from telling others of his conduct because he knew it was inappropriate.”

The Queensland College of Teachers (QCT), which began an investigation into Mr Stark after it was informed by the Department of Education there was an investigation into his behaviour last October, told QCAT the teacher’s conduct represented “a campaign of grooming”.

The tribunal ordered Mr Stark’s teaching registration be cancelled and he be banned from reapplying for four years.

He was also ordered to obtain treatment from a registered psychologist within 12 months of reapplying for registration.

Young Cairns man Noel Alexander Penman is now a registered sex offender

June 3, 2016 2:11pm

CAIRNS man Noel Alexander Penman is now a registered sex offender after he pleaded guilty in court to possessing more than 900 child porn images.

The Cairns District Court was told police found the 24-year-old in possession of 904 category one, two, three, four and six images after seizing his computer in February 2014.

Crown prosecutor Brendan Manttan said Penman also had one category four video.

Penman did not have any category five images, which is the most serious level of child exploitation material depicting sadism, humiliation and bestiality.

The vast majority, about 90%, of the images found in Penman’s possession were category one.

However, Mr Manttan said it was concerning that he possessed some category four images and a video, which showed penetrative sex between children and adults.

Defence barrister Derek Kordick, for Penman, said a psychologist’s report stated that his client was a low risk of reoffending.

Penman was employed.

Chief Judge Kerry O’Brien released Penman on a 12-month intensive corrections order, which is a term of imprisonment that is served in the community.

Convictions were recorded.

Man jailed for rape, indecent treatment of four-year-old

A 27-year-old man who digitally raped a four-year-old girl has been jailed after police found sexual images of the child on his laptop.

Damien James Hilderbrandt was found guilty of one count of rape and five counts of indecent treatment of a child in a trial last week.

On Monday, he also pleaded guilty to a second indictment of possessing child exploitation material.

He was 26 when he digitally raped the young girl and took photos of the act on his mobile phone, saving five images on his laptop.

The second indictment related to an additional 55 images and three movies which were located on his laptop.

While 51 of those images and the videos were cartoon in nature, four of them depicted real photos of pre-pubescent girls in sexual situations.

The court heard that he denied, and expressed surprise, that any images of real children would be on his computer and showed no remorse.

However, Crown prosecutor Alexandra Baker said he told police he needed help after admitting to possessing the cartoon images.

Defence barrister Ross Lo Monaco said Hildebrandt was introverted, shy and spent most of his time inside playing computer games and taking drugs before the offending and was even homeless for a while.

In March last year he was incarcerated, and Mr Lo Monaco said being in prison had transformed him from “a small weak-minded, weak-bodied addict”.

“He was angry at the beginning, now he’s almost glad he was given this opportunity to change,” he said.

“He has been trying to improve himself during incarceration.”

He was sentenced to three years and six months in jail for the rape, 18 months for each of the five indecent treatment charges and 12 months jail for possessing child exploitation material.

He has already served almost a year on remand.

The sentences will be served concurrently.
