UPDATE 8th Jan 2014

This bloke had the audacity to write to me with threats of legal action as he felt he was not in the category of being a paedophile, even though he snuck into a tent and sexually assaulted two 16 year old girls and bragged about it.(As a married man with 3 kids)

I’m right on the edge of posting about a dozen photos of you, sent to me…Thank god you have kids who deserve better

WELL WELL WELL This tool has inspired to me encompass all the sex offenders just in case they think they get a chance to feel better about themselves on a word. Peter you committed a disgusting dirty crime, were convicted for it and was placed on the sex offenders register.

Just because you relaxed in jail for a while does NOT mean the outside world forget what you did!

It is sizzled red hot into history,I hate to imagine the memories the young girls have of your disgusting behaviour.

Here is the email he wrote, suffice to say he inspired me to change the site to cover them all Aussie Sex offenders (previously Aussie paedophiles, as if one behaviour is better or less degrading and despicable as the other)

Next time you consider writing to a blog demanding removal like some  almighty god, think again loser.

Jailed for assault on lesbians

DAVID KILLICK   |   December 08, 2010 11.04am

A DRUNKEN man who indecently assaulted two teenage lesbians as they made out in a tent has been jailed.

Vodafone worker Peter John Lasdauskas, 37, of Rose Bay was sentenced to nine months in prison by Justice Shan Tennent in the Supreme Court in Hobart this morning.

He had pleaded guilty to three counts of indecent assault.

Justice Tennant said Lasdauskas had been drinking at a party at a friend’s house on New Year’s Eve.

When he discovered the 16-year-old two girls were kissing in a tent in the backyard he and another man went to watch.

They were told to leave but Lasdauskas returned and touched one of the girls on the leg before by indecently touching and licking her.

Justice Tennant said the girl was terrified Lasdauskas might become violent if she didn’t comply.

He subsequently indecently assaulted the girl’s partner.

The court heard Lasdauskas said shortly afterwards: “Did you see what I was doing to those bitches?” and had boasted of his encounter with two lesbians.

Justice Tennant said the incident had cost Lasdauskas his marriage and would probably also cost him his job.

She sentenced him to nine months in jail, with three months of the sentence suspended provided Lasdauskas be of good behaviour for three years.

She also ordered he be placed on the sex offenders register for the same period.

Man ‘lost everything’ after assaulting teens

Posted Mon Nov 29, 2010 12:51pm AEDT

A southern Tasmanian man has admitted sexually assaulting two 16-year-old girls at a house party.

Peter John Lasdauskus of Rose Bay has pleaded guilty to three counts of indecent sexual assault.

The father of three had taken his wife and children to the house party late last year, and started drinking heavily.

Later that night he assaulted a 16-year-old girl and her best friend, who were sleeping in a tent in the backyard.

The Supreme Court in Hobart heard Lasdauskus’ wife found out about the assaults and left him the next day.

The matter was supposed to go to trial today, but Lasdauskus pleaded guilty at the last-minute.

His lawyer said the evening of stupidity had cost his client everything.

Lasdauskus will be sentenced next week.

Search for molester at Sarina

18th Jan 2007 8:00 AM

POLICE were last night searching for serial child molester Raymond Phillip Downs at Sarina.

They were acting on information suggesting Downs was travelling south from Bakers Creek to Sarina.

If he was in the area without informing the relevant authorities, it would be a breach of his parole conditions, a police spokesman said last night.

Downs has family in Mackay and there were widespread rumours he had returned to live in Marian after he was released from Wolston Correctional Centre in February 2005.

The suggestion he had returned then attracted concern and anger throughout the community. He is believed to have been living in Brisbane recently.

His criminal history includes a string of sex offences against pre-pubescent girls dating back to 1974.

Last night’s police search began just after 6pm and continued well into the evening.

Taxi drivers were also on alert for anyone matching Downs’s description.

Ray wants to be forgiven

2nd Mar 2005 7:00 AM

A SUPPORT worker for serial sex offender Raymond Phillip Downs says her client hopes for forgiveness from the community.

Speaking exclusively with The Daily Mercury yesterday, the worker and friend, said Downs was ”doing it tough”.

”He knows he is going to get rejection from the community, but he lives with the hope that others will give him support,” the worker who wished to remain anonymous, said.

Downs has been living in the OzCare hostel in Endeavour Street since last Thursday night, according to his West Mackay family.

Downs will no longer be residing at OzCare, but plans to move him to Marian failed.

He is said to have nowhere to go, according to family.

Hostel residents alerted The Daily Mercury to Downs’ location yesterday morning, but he could not be contacted for comment.

He reportedly had a rough time at the hostel, with several residents claiming to have abused him.

One resident said Downs kept to himself.

”We didn’t know anything about (him) until we saw the Saturday paper,” he said.

Downs reportedly told one resident he had been rehabilitated and just said ”I’m sorry” when a man challenged him about his past.

Downs was reported to be living in a separate room from the dormitory area, but no-one answered when a Daily Mercury journalist knocked on the door yesterday.

Town on edge

1st Mar 2005 7:00 AM

RUMOURS that serial child molester Raymond Phillip Downs is living at Marian, 27km west of Mackay, have the entire town on edge.

Residents said if they found out Downs, 48, was in fact living in their midst, they would do whatever it took to make him leave.

The trouble is, no-one can confirm exactly where he is.

Downs was released from Wolston Correction Centre in Brisbane last week and it was confirmed he flew into Mackay last Friday.

Marian police Sergeant Dan Graham said while police were privy to his whereabouts so he could be moni- tored, they were not at liberty to divulge any information to the media or the general public.

Sgt Graham said he could not comment about the matter.

And that has residents fuming.

They believe they have a right to know whether there is a child molester in their community. Most residents were too frightened to speak on the record ? they were afraid they or their children could be targeted.

Serial sex offender Kenneth Herbert Clarke released from Queensland jail

  • By Christine Flatley
  • From: AAP
  • May 26, 2011 1:47PM

A MAN with a lengthy history of sexually abusing women and children has been released from custody under a supervision order.

Kenneth Herbert Clarke’s criminal behaviour dates back to 1980 when he pleaded guilty to indecently dealing with a five-year-old girl.

He was again convicted 10 years later for sexually assaulting a woman and abusing a 10-year-old girl.

Clarke was most recently convicted in 2004 of repeatedly raping a 38-year-old woman.

Clarke has consistently argued the sex was consensual.

He has spent seven years behind bars after the jury found him guilty.

Earlier this month, lawyers for Queensland’s attorney-general sought that Clarke not be released from jail without a supervision order under the Dangerous Prisoners (Sexual Offenders) Act.

Attorney-General Paul Lucas did not seek a continuing detention order, arguing instead that strict conditions would adequately protect the community.

Under the conditions, Clarke must regularly report to Corrective Services officers, abide by a curfew and abstain from drugs and alcohol.

He is also forbidden from having contact with girls under 16.

Clarke’s release comes in the wake of another sex offender, Robert John Fardon, being approved for release from jail, despite repeatedly breaching his conditions.

Lawyers for the attorney-general have until Monday to appeal against Fardon’s release.

Youth volunteer gets 200 hours for child sex offence

Gympie Times – 02.06.2007

A FORMER Gympie ambulance officer has been sentenced to 200 hours community service after pleading guilty to possessing erotic stories about teenage boys and performing oral sex on a boy he coached at football.

Kenneth Joseph Boody, 59, had some of the child exploitation material in an office where he worked as a volunteer at the old Gympie railway station. The stories, titled Josh and Story Two, detailed explicit acts between boys aged under 16.

Police also found a similar explicit story between two underage boys, 14 and 10, on the man’s computer hard drive, the court heard. Boody initially told police he used the stories to provide training in his former staff training role with the ambulance service.

He also faced Maroochydore District Court yesterday for indecently dealing with a 15-year-old football player in 1988.

The court heard the boy was staying in a caravan at the rear of the family property and thought of him as a foster father.

The boy woke to find his pants zipper undone and the man performing oral sex; he pretended he was asleep until the man left.

The court heard that Boody, who retired from the ambulance service with post traumatic stress disorder, was heavily involved in the local community.

He was involved with meals on wheels, sporting clubs, charity and community committees, and other community-minded ventures.

Boody was sentenced to 200 hours of community service. No conviction was recorded on the child exploitation material charge, however a conviction was recorded on the indecent dealing offence.

Judge White said, A custodial sentence would be pointless as a deterrent.

Man given community service for porn offences

A Gympie man has been sentenced to 200 hours community service for possessing child pornography and the indecent treatment of a child under 16 years.

Fifty-nine-year-old Kenneth Joseph Boody was the Mary Valley Heritage Railway’s station master when he was charged with possessing pornographic material in August 2005.

Days after a raid on his station office, a man told police he had been sexually assaulted by Boody in 1988, when he was 15 years old.

Today in the Maroochydore District Court Boody pleaded guilty to the possession of child pornography and the indecent treatment of a child under 16 years.

He was sentenced to 200 hours of community service.

In sentencing, the judge told the court a jail sentence was “pointless” as the defendant was unlikely to reoffend.

He also ruled out imprisonment because Boody was in possession of fictional stories, not images which exploited children.

High Court dismisses child sex appeal

Posted Thu Dec 6, 2007 11:16am AEDT

A man has failed in a High Court appeal against child sex convictions.

Graham James Gately was convicted in the Queensland District Court in 2004 of 10 counts of indecent treatment of a girl under 16 and one count of incest.

Gately argued in the High Court that the jury should not have been allowed a second viewing of a video of the victim giving her evidence.

The court decided that replaying the video to the jury without the court reconvening was irregular but had not led to a miscarriage of justice.

Man exposed himself to girl, 12

Rae Wilson | 8th August 2012 9:00 PM

A FLASHER with a history of exposing himself to young children in the Gympie and Fraser Coast areas has now shown his genitals to a 12-year-old girl at a Brisbane pool.

Steven Paul Barney, 55, did not react as Brisbane District Court heard the string of indecent exposures to children, once to a family of seven children aged 11 to two.

The father of 11 children, who grew up in Gympie and spent a large portion of his life on the Fraser Coast, also had history of behaving similarly in NSW and the Northern Territory.

Crown prosecutor Sam Bain said Barney had once asked four young girls to have sex with him and to remove his underwear.

He said the criminal history showed no previous sentences had deterred the man from exposing himself.

Defence barrister Julian Noud said his client was clearly intoxicated when police arrived at the Sandgate pool to reports of indecent exposure in February this year.

“He’s been in the grip of an alcohol addiction for most of his life,” he said.

“He accepts this is and continues to be a problem.”

Mr Noud said Barney, who had white hair and a long white beard, was an Aboriginal man who felt disconnected from his land and his culture.

He said he turned to alcohol whenever he had a breakdown.

Judge Grant Britton sentenced Barney to the 174 days he has already spent in custody and ordered him to complete nine months of probation.



Music teacher avoids jail for groping schoolgirls

Kate Osborn 7News Melbourne October 17, 2014, 5:07 pm

A depraved music teacher who has convictions for groping ten schoolgirls has again avoided jail-time, despite admitting to molesting six more.

Sigmund Sokolowski was handed a two-year suspended sentence after pleading guilty to indecent assault charges and four counts of committing an indecent act with a child under the age of 16 in relation to six Wesley College students between 1987 and 2006.

The 56-year-old has prior convictions for groping ten other girls while teaching at two other exclusive schools, but he has never been to prison for his crimes.

The County Court heard Sokolowski led a double life for more than two decades – as a musician touring with Frank Sinatra, Liza Minelli and Sammy Davis Junior, and a child molester taking advantage of teenagers.

Judge Philip Coish said Sokolowski had not abused a child since 2006, and had since completed a sex offenders program.

Judge Coish said he was confident Sokolowski’s risk of re-offending was low.

His victims, who cannot be identified for legal reasons, are not convinced, and fear he could strike again.

“I believe he doesn’t have any insight into what he’s done and how it’s devastated children,” one victim told reporters outside court.

“No amount of jail time would have brought back our childhoods, but we would really have liked even just one month in jail,” another said.

Sokolowski, who was free on bail, left the court wearing a wig and bolted when approached by a Seven News crew.

He had no apology for the girls he has abused.

Child protection advocate Derryn Hinch has been writing about Sokolowski for years.

“He’s one of the worst,” he said. “He’s a pig.”

Hinch has joined the latest victims in urging others who have remained silent to come forward in the hope Sokolowski could face further charges.


How is this allowed to happen? All parents need to be warned. He umpired last Saturday in the Under-18s football for the VAFA at Brens Oval at Parkville. VIC UNI v WERRIBEE

The official VAFA umpire’s newsletter the other day said: Sig Sokolowski hits 150 games today. Sig joined us from the Southern Football league a few years back and has quickly reached that mark. 200 not too far away. Have a great day’.

Sygmund Sokolowski – A Current Footy Umpire

by Derryn Hinch

Tuesday, 15 May 2012

Question. How can a man, a predator, an absolute sleazebag, who is on the Sexual Offenders Register for life, be umpiring Under-18s football for the VAFA?

Registered Sex Offender – Sygmund Sokolowski

He does. He did on Saturday at Brens Oval at Parkville. He was field umpire in the game between University High School – Victoria Uni Football Club and Werribee. His name is Sygmund Sokolowski. He now calls himself Sig, replacing the ‘y’ with an ‘i’ — but that hasn’t fooled some of us.

I know a lot about this grubby man, a former school music teacher with a history of sex offences against teenage girls over twenty years. In recent times he molested at least ten female students at five schools. He was convicted over those sexual assaults but did not go to jail.He only got a three-month intensive corrections order and 120 hours of community service.

The crimes he pleaded guilty to covered two schools and the years 2003 to 2005. I know there were many more victims at places like Wesley College. I have met some of his other victims – including one Wesley teenager he allegedly raped back in 1987. He also allegedly indecently assaulted other girls at Emmaus [ emmay-us] College in 1999.

His sleazy reputation and abuse of positions of authority have been known in the music industry for years. I know of some professional musicians who refused to work with him even before he was charged – his reputation was so notorious.

And if some school principals had had the guts to come forward then not only would his true character have been revealed but dozens of other victims could have been protected.

I have talked at length to one alleged rape victim who was persuaded by school authorities not to go to the Police and lay charges. At school after school when he was caught out, the school’s administrators hushed it up, got Sokolowski to move on, to offend again. His standard tactic was to tell parents that he had to tutor their girls at his home because there was no room in the school’s timetable. From memory he did a lot of that in Carlton.

So now he’s in close contact with schools again as a VAFA umpire. The official VAFA umpire’s newsletter the other day said: Sig Sokolowski hits 150 games today. Sig joined us from the Southern Football league a few years back and has quickly reached that mark. 200 not too far away. Have a great day’.

I presume they were talking about football games – not victims. The VAFA was notified about this man being on the Sex Offender’s Register some time ago. How come he was still umpiring on Saturday?

Sure they are under-18 males. But it could give him access to their teenage sisters and female friends. And being an accredited umpire gives this sleazy predator dangerous credibility.

You’ve heard of the Evil Empire. This is the  evil umpire. He must be stopped.
