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.

Father who planned to make child pornography after daughter’s birth jailed

Updated 24 Jun 2016, 11:56am

A Brisbane father has been jailed for a minimum of two-and-a-half years after he sent ultrasound images of his unborn daughter to an undercover officer to show he intended to make child pornography when she was born.

Last week, the 25-year-old man pleaded guilty in Brisbane’s District Court to possessing child exploitation material and using a carriage service to access child pornography material.

The court heard the father was arrested in January 2015 by Australian Federal Police officers after a tip-off from the FBI in the United States.

The man sent an ultrasound of his unborn child and 12 images of child pornography to an undercover officer, saying he intended to make his own child pornography with his daughter.

Police found the man in possession of 6,435 images and videos of child exploitation material across three devices.

Some were of cartoons, but thousands were of actual children and babies.

The court had previously heard many of the children were showing signs of distress and pain.

Offender’s statements a ‘sign of moral corruption’

District Court Judge David Reid said it was the worst case of child exploitation material he had ever seen.

In sentencing, Judge Reid said the sending of the ultrasound image was not an offence but showed a “gross lack of insight”.

“The fact you were prepared to make such statements is a sign of the extent of your moral corruption and your lack of insight into the nature of child abuse,” he said.

He said the downloading and storing of the material was done so in a “sophisticated” way in different folders.

Judge Reid told the man that what he had described as his stated intentions with his daughter were “vile, explicit and specific”.

He said he was provided a sample of the material found on the devices owned by the man.

“The material you viewed, possessed and transmitted would be seen to be revolting and upsetting to normal people,” he said.

Judge Reid sentenced the man to five years’ jail, with a non-parole period of two-and-a-half years.
