Man provided teens with drugs before assaulting 15-year-old

A BELMONT man, who provided underaged girls with drugs and allowed them to stay overnight at his unit, has been jailed for sexually assaulting a 15-year-old girl.

Sean Dertilis, 38, pleaded guilty in Geelong County Court recently to three counts of committing an indecent act with a child under 16.

Handing down sentence yesterday, Judge Phillip Coish said the victim was aged 15 at the time and Dertilis, 37.

Judge Coish said that, on August 19, 2012, the victim and her friends attended Dertilis’s unit where they smoked cannabis provided by him.

He said that on August 20, the girls again attended Dertilis’s unit where they smoked cannabis and some young people stayed overnight.

The judge said that, during the night, the victim woke to find Dertilis in her bed, indecently assaulting her.

“She thought she was being touched by a young male she knew, but then realised it was you,” he said.

Judge Coish said Dertilis had a long history of drug use and criminal offending.

“You have numerous priors from 35 court appearances between 1993 and 2011, but no priors for sex offending,” he said.

“I see your prospects of rehabilitation as cloudy.

“You had a vulnerable young person staying in your unit and on drugs supplied by you.

“She is now fearful and depressed and according to her mother, has become withdrawn and prone to panic attacks.”

Dertilis, once a victim of an attempted murder after being forced to inject himself with battery acid, was sentenced to 18 months’ jail with a non-parole period of 12 months.

His name has been placed on the Sex Offenders Register for eight years.

Wall successfully appealed against the severity of a weekend jail order for having child pornography on his computer equipment. Judge Warwick Andrew confirmed the conviction but set aside the weekend jail order. He substituted a suspended 12-month jail sentence with the condition he undertake psychological treatment for the whole term.

Sex offender has serial killer fantasies

  • APRIL 24, 2014 8:25AM

A REGISTERED sex offender, fascinated by sexual violence and becoming a serial killer, 

has had a charge of loitering near a Geelong primary school dismissed.

Daniel Owens, 27, formerly of Summit Ave, Belmont, pleaded not guilty to the charge during a contested

hearing in Geelong Magistrates’ Court yesterday.

Owens, who has a criminal history dating back to 2005, is now serving three years and three months’ jail

after being convicted of indecent assault, false imprisonment, theft and indecent language.

Those charges stemmed from an attack on a 17-year-old girl at a public toilet in Belmont on June 22, 2013.

On September 10, 2013, while on bail for that matter, Owens approached and indecently assaulted a young

dance teacher as she conducted classes in a church hall.

Handing down sentence, Judge Geoffrey Chettle said that in October 2011, Owens appeared at Ballarat Court

charged with committing an indecent act with a child and was placed on the sex offenders register.

Judge Chettle said Owens, who suffers from drug-induced psychosis and has priors for violence, dishonesty

and firearms offences, then sexually assaulted a 14-year-old girl in Geelong.

He said a psychiatric report described Owens as having thoughts of stabbing people and a fascination

towards sexual offending and becoming a serial killer.

He said the report also described Owens’ psychotic illness as “resistant to treatment”.

During yesterday’s hearing, witnesses told how on May 13, 2013, a drunk man fitting Owens description,

was seen hanging around Belmont Primary School trying to talk with students.

One witness told how the man had his arms stretched through the fence, beckoning young children to come

to him.

Former principal Mark Arkinstall said he saw the man calling to students through the fence and at one

point tried to grab students as they ran past.

He said the man was told to leave and eventually walked off.

Senior Constable Nathan Hahn, said Owens was arrested by police about 4.05pm, the same day, drunk,

unconscious, sitting on a lavatory in a locked cubicle at a public toilet in Belmont.

“There were two empty Rexona cans on the floor and a broken whisky bottle,” he said.

He said Owens fitted the description of the man loitering near Belmont Primary School, was interviewed

and charged.

Magistrate Michael Coghlan said each of the witnesses had given similar but varying descriptions of the

man at the school.

He said that, while it was more likely Owens was the man at the school that day, he was not able to

find the charge proved beyond reasonable doubt and the charge was dismissed.

Former Lake Macquarie mayor jailed over indecent assault

BY ALISON BRANLEY – Newcastle Herald

10/10/2009 4:00:00 AM

FORMER Lake Macquarie mayor Douglas Carley has been sentenced to three years in prison for indecently assaulting a 12-year-old boy.

Judge Gregory Hosking sentenced Carley, 73, of Hamilton, in Newcastle District Court yesterday to three years with a 15-month non-parole period.

It means Carley, who has been in custody most of 2009, could be released in April next year.

The court heard Carley befriended the victim’s family in October, 2008, after the boy’s mother took pity on Carley when she saw him about to fall over because he had “taken too many tablets”.

She encouraged her son to help Carley and at one stage told her son, “He is just an old man”.

At Carley’s unit on November 17, 2008, Carley pulled the victim’s pants down and touched the boy’s genitals.

Carley threatened to kill himself that day but was not arrested until he threatened self-harm again in January.

Judge Hosking said the maximum sentence was 10 years but Carley’s offence was between the low and middle range.

He took into account Carley’s plea of guilty, age, mental health issues and that most of his term would be spent in protection.

“[It] is often more arduous than being in the general prison population,” he said.

“By pleading guilty he has also saved young [the victim] the ordeal of having to recount this matter.”

Judge Hosking said Carley had bi-polar disorder, was sexually abused as a child and had electric shock treatment twice before age 25.

A psychiatrist’s report read to the court yesterday stated that Carley was voted Lake Macquarie mayor during one of his hypo-manic periods but became depressed, losing his wife, his role and becoming financially destitute.

It stated that during elevated moods Carley abandoned all caution and identified with boys of 14.

Carley was a Lake Macquarie councillor for 10 years and was mayor from 1991 to 1993.

He was a high school teacher at Warners Bay, Glenfield, Belmont, Toronto and Broadmeadow.

He was convicted of indecently assaulting a 15-year-old boy in 1995.

A condition of Carley’s parole will be to stay on medication and see a psychiatrist to reduce the risk of re-offending.

Ex-mayor to stand trial on indecent assault charge

Posted Wed Apr 8, 2009 3:35pm AEST

A former New South Wales mayor has been committed to stand trial for the alleged assault of a boy.

Former Lake Macquarie mayor, Douglas Carley, 72, is charged with the aggravated indecent assault of the 12-year-old in November last year.

Police allege he lured the child into his Newcastle unit where the alleged assault took place.

While appearing via audio-visual link in Newcastle local court today, Carley appeared frustrated with the connections to his hearing aids, impairing his hearing.

He showed no expression when Magistrate Elaine Truscott committed him to stand trial for the alleged offence.

He is due to be arraigned in the Newcastle District Court next week.
